If you’re more artsy and crafty with your style, and second season borderline punk, the Humphrey family has you covered. There’s really some creative inspo for anyone in this cult classic show.
3. Sex and the City
This is probably the most well-known show for its fashion and crazy characters of all time. Sex and the city is the originator of taking new york high fashion street style and luxury into the homes of all. It focuses on the show’s main character Carrie Bradshaw, a New York journalist with an infamous sex column, and her classic tulle skirt taking the city by storm. By her side in her wild endeavors are her three friends, Charlotte the debutant, Miranda the bold lawyer, and Samantha the wild card.
This show is not only extremely relatable to anyone who has tried to date in a big city, but it helps you let go of preconceived notions of fashion and have a little more fun with your looks. Carrie mixes classic go-to pieces with funky prints and fabrics that will give you style inspiration for days. It’s also fun to watch her style evolve along with the other characters throughout the seasons. Plus if you end up being a fan of the timeless Sex and the City series, you can see where her style journey began with the Carrie Diaries.
One of the most streamed shows online this year, for good reason, is the infamous Euphoria series starring Zendaya. This show is groundbreaking in a multitude of ways, one being its interpretation of modern-day millennial fashion. It follows the main character Rue and her life story as she crosses paths with other characters in high school. The series evolves to having an episode for each character that intertwines their past with their current high school drama. And let me tell you, the drama is juicy, to say the least.
What makes the show even better, is the unapologetically fabulous fashion to give you tons of style inspiration. Each character has their very unique take on the stereotypical box a high schooler is subjected to. Maddy is a twist on the classic girly girl, Rue a high fashion Tomboy, and Jules a modern preppy meets rave going style icon. The show also spared no ignorance of popular neon make-up and glitter with their artsy beauty looks. This show will have you buying neon eyeliner and glitter before you end the first episode. Plus throwing a zoom watch party of the show wearing glitter and neon is a lit way to spend any weekend.
For the thrifter and badass boss in every girl, this show is your new go too for style inspiration. The spitfire main character Sophia is struggling to make it in the bustling town of San Francisco California. She discovers a talent for thrifting, which she then makes into her own business selling aesthetic looking clothes on eBay. The show, of course, has oodles of drama to keep you entertained and so many indy and artsy looks to make you want to get up and go to your nearest thrift store or log onto Depop of course.
This show is a tribute to the creator of nasty gal, so while watching the show you get to feel like you’re on the journey with Sophia as she slowly falls into the role of owning her own company. Her personality is as bold and loud as the awesome outfits she puts together, which made me feel like a boss just watching her. Not only will this show give you great style inspiration, but leave you feeling like you can do or wear anything!
