5 Television Characters To Inspire Your Wardrobe

While you may have already seen the first part of our wardrobe overhaul which focused on movie characters such as Carrie Bradshaw, this is solely dedicated to television stars and their super-famous style.

Whether you’re looking towards inspiration for evening-wear, or simply how to dress up a casual white t-shirt, below are some characters who have made their look iconic.

Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl)

Showcasing preppy-chic and almost everything in between, Blair Waldorf is the it girl when it comes to Upper West Side style. Her headbands made her famous, but the couple-dressing with love interest and fellow game-player, Chuck Bass made their look indestructible.

A few essential pieces include a pair of sturdy flat shoes, a neutral coloured trench coat, and the ability to colour-block all of your outfits (think of patterns like neutrals, they go with everything).

Kimber Henry (Nip/Tuck)

The character of seductive and often naive Kimber Henry was that which suffered greatly throughout the duration of this popular plastic-surgery phenomenon. Known for her signature blonde curls and refined lady-like style, you could always count on Kimber to showcase the best of American designers between 2003-2010.

Body-con dresses, matching lingerie sets from Agent Provocateur, sky-high stiletto heels, and a fearless attitude proved to define her sense of style.

Karen van der Beek (Californication)

Karen’s free spirit was represented through her choice of relaxed clothes and long blonde hair which represent California in a nutshell. Mixing structured pieces like a blazer with maxi-dresses and bell-bottom jeans quickly made Karen’s style the focus of the entire show (well, for us at least).

Dainty jewellery and loose curls are the best way catch Karen’s vibe without killing your credit card.

Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City)

This might count as cheating since we’ve already mentioned Carrie before, but some serious inspiration comes straight from her infamous closet. Carrie taught women around the world that stilettos are always back in fashion, experimenting with clothes is never not an option, and sometimes it’s okay to trade food for an issue of Vogue.

Highlights include that signature tulle skirt in the opening credits, and always embracing your natural curls (if you have them, if not, fake it).

Marissa Cooper (The OC)

And finally we’re wrapping it up with one of our favourites, Marissa Cooper. Her collection of caviar-leather Chanel bags is still causing us enough envy, but Marissa’s laid-back California style will never grow old.

If all else fails, a great party dress and a rebellious attitude is the best way to channel┬áMischa Barton’s famous character.

How to Wear Boho Fashion for Spring

The bohemian look is going to be big in spring thanks to the influx of festival-inspired wear. The modern bohemian avoids over-sized bell bottoms, but she does enjoy her flower crowns and peasant tops – think Alexa Chung and Nicole Ritchie. If you want more ideas on how to wear the boho look, then follow these tips to update your look from hippie chic to glamorous bohemian babe.

Flower crowns

Flower crowns are one of the most popular hair trends this spring. You can wear them with your hear down for a loose romantic music festival–inspired look. However, if you really want to be on-trend, then try rolling your hair or braiding and tucking it into the elasticised band of the headband. This will create a look that is refreshing and modern. This style is also a great way to keep you cool as the temperatures start to rise!

Maxi skirts

Maxi skirts are a bohemian style staple, and they have been popular for the past few seasons. They get an upgrade this spring with bright neon colours, tribal-inspired patterns, and loose, flowing fabrics. Look for maxi skirts made of chiffon or a sheer fabric for an updated version of this classic style.

Bright neon colours like hot pink or highlighter yellow are a fun trend to pair with a monochromatic top, or choose romantic pinks and neutrals for a softer palette. Just remember to keep the rest of your look simple if you are going to pick out a wild maxi skirt.

The peasant top

If you can only invest in one bohemian piece this spring, let it be a peasant top. These sexy tops are a great transitional season piece. You can wear it now with a light jacket or later in the summer with denim cutoffs. Peasant tops come in many different styles and colours. Look for off-the-shoulder white tops with embroidery around the neckline, as well as darker peasant tops in lace or linen. Pick one that best represents your style.

The bohemian scarf

A scarf is a bohemian’s best friend because it can be worn anywhere. You can tie one around your head when you are having a bad hair day, or you can wrap it around you waist while at the beach. Pick out a scarf with a wild pattern to make it fun and flirty for the season ahead.

Crochet

If you really want to do bohemian style right, then you need to invest in some crochet pieces. The biggest crochet trend this spring is shorts. You can dress these up or down depending on the occasion. Plus, shorts are super sexy and a great alternative to skirts or dresses. You can also look for shorts that have crochet appliques if you want to wear the trend in a simpler way. If you are not feeling this look, then you can always opt for crochet accessories. Accessories are easier to pull off, and a crochet bag will make any outfit look instantly bohemian.
