Fashionable Shows You Need To Watch
Happy Sunday lovely,
After watching countless episodes of Sex & the City on a rainy day last week, I realized how inspired I was feeling. I was eager to channel my inner Carrie Bradshaw with some gorgeous skirts, pattern mixing, and wild hair.
I thought I'd change things up a little bit and write about some of my favorite and most style-inspiring tv shows.
Sex & the City
SATC is, without a doubt, the most fashionable show in the past twenty years. It's one of the few shows I've become so obsessed with that I actually feel connected to the characters (I thank the HBO gods everyday for this show lol.) With a heavy focus on the love lives of four fabulous women, we all get to live through our favorite character's impeccable and unique New York style. The show covers every issue under the sun, and in a witty and relatable way too! Plus, you've never seen such gorgeous collections of designer shoes and handbags, mixed with lovely vintage finds. This will forever be one of my favorite shows and will never go out of style, in my book!
If you're on the hunt for a new and fashionable tv show, Girlboss, a Netflix original, is definitely one you should try out. Based on the true story of Nasty Gal creator Sophia Amoruso, this show portrays the trials and tribulations of a twenty-something trying to make a dent in the fashion industry. Watching her struggle through creating her own brand, I was inspired by how she turned her vintage purchases into new and exciting pieces. Her character is very relatable when you're also a twenty-something trying to find your way in the real world, and her 70s-inspired style is mega cool.
If you're looking for some 60s and 70s inspo, Mad Men is the one for you! The 60s and 70s are two of the eras current trends seem to be imitating. Mad Men is littered with the controversial ideas of the era, but also impeccably cool costumes, interior design, and hairstyles. When you get past the surprising treatment of women during the 60s, you get a real appreciation for what the women went through while still staying impeccably stylish.
Thanks for my lovely friend, Haven, I was introduced to Gossip Girl, a teen version of SATC. It follows the oh-so-fashionable lives of a group of teenagers living on the Upper East side of Manhattan. The series is about relationships, style, and the gossip soaked world of high school. While the storyline got a tiny bit repetitive for me, this show is definitely worth watching for the style inspiration.
Another one of my favorite shows has got to be the extravagant world that is Downton Abbey. If you're looking for some over-the-top vintage fashion inspiration from the 20s, this is the show for you. Not only is the story line amazingly intricate, the costumes of each character (especially the owners of the house) are usually beaded, embellished, and embroidered to the nines. Even if you're not into fashion, this show is a stylish must-watch!
As always, thanks for coming over for a little read. If there's any fabulous tv shows I've missed, let me know down in the comments below so I can watch them! I love find new tv shows to obsess over.
