August 1 marked the beginning of Netflix releasing classic Black sitcoms to a brand new audience and today’s mainstream. Considering this, a historical series that most people recognize is ‘Sister, Sister’. The show follows the story of two identical twin sisters separated by birth and brought together by “retail fate” in one epic living situation in the suburbs of Detroit. While the hair transformations and coming of age stories were used as markers for the show, the series’ six-season run also had an ever so evolving and observable fashion sense throughout the 90s. With that being said, here are 10 stylish ‘Sister, Sister’ outfits that you can recreate today.

8. Tia’s Bright Green Turtleneck & Cow Mini Dress

20 years before Doja Cat’s Moo outfit and her reference to both Tia and Tamera in her music, Tia would pave the way for Doja by wearing a cow mini dress on ‘Sister, Sister’. Wearing a bright green turtleneck underneath and a cute swept braid, this fashion moment surely wasn’t overlooked during the airing of this episode. The bold look slightly contrasted Tia’s overall and known demeanor, but, in the same vein, tapped into her inner child and fun side. This is an outfit to recreate by paying homage to the character and all the meanings and references behind it.

Tia’s lime green jacket and Tamera’s animal print top are by far one of the most unique and sophisticated attires worn by the twins.
