1. Rachel Green
Rachel Green starts out her classic role on Friends as a spoiled rich girl who hasn’t worked for any of the things she has but soon works her way up to working for Ralph Lauren.

2. Alexis Rose
Alexis Rose was bound to be a fashion icon since the premiere of Schitt’s Creek.

She made sure to fill her bags to the brink with all her best clothes, shoes, purses, and accessories. While living in a smaller, less-fortunate town, she stands out with her unique and bold fashion choices in every episode. Known as a sometimes ditsy character who is oblivious to her surroundings, she makes sure that no matter what people think of her, they know she has a good style!
3. Blair Waldorf
When thinking of fashion icons in TV series, Blair Waldorf is bound to come to mind, even if you haven’t actually watched Gossip Girl. Living in the upper east side, attending a preppy private school, and appearing as though they live adult lives, Blair and her crew are anything but ordinary. Growing up with a mother who is a fashion designer definitely left an impact on Blair and her style choices, although some were negative with the constant desire to be perfect. Blair Waldorf chooses fashion over comfort, and will wear anything that makes her look the best in the room!
4. Jackie Burkhart
When looking for fashion inspiration for the 70s, Jackie Burkhart is your girl. With her classic role on That 70’s Show, Jackie rocks all things 70’s, from bell-bottom pants to disco themed tops.

She knows she looks good in every outfit and is the center of attention in every room she walks in.
5. Jessica Day
Jessica Day is a quirky middle school teacher and vice-principal, who has a unique look and aesthetic. She has a positive outlook on life, and it shows through her bright outfits.

Typically in a modest top and flowy mini skirt, Jess pulls off so many unique looks that most people wouldn’t even try. She has her own personal style that isn’t copied often in TV, making her a true fashion icon.
6. Moira Rose
Alexis Rose had to get her eye for fashion from somewhere, and that somewhere is her mother, Moira Rose! Moira is a flamboyant character on Schitt’s Creek that is known for her dramatic personality and over-the-top dialogue.

8. Veronica Lodge
Veronica Lodge starts off her time in Riverdale as the designated preppy, rich girl, but soon transforms into a relatable character, still with impeccable style. She has the perfect appearance on the outside, while her home life is a mess with her parents.

Sometimes looking out of place (for obvious reasons), Veronica doesn’t seem to be bothered as being best dressed in all situations.
9. Kelly Kapowski
Kelly Kapowski embodies everything a girl in the 90s is inspired by in fashion. She is the perfect, all-American girl who has every boy in school fawning over her. Her girly and feminine style has so many girls wanting to recreate her look and create looks inspired by her character.
