Eight Shows to Watch for Fashion’s Sake
4) Pretty Little Liars
The truth about the ABC Family favorite is that the show offers a fair dose of suspense and drama that is mature enough to hold an adult interest, but not at all too sophisticated for teens. The series which was originally based on a collection of mystery novels by Sara Shepard follows the adventures of Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily as their lives are haunted by mysterious “Mean Girl” circumstances that seem to lead the group to finding out the truth behind the disappearance of their former bestie Queen Bee, Alison. If you find it hard to keep up with the clues, the fashion is easy to follow.
Each character has a distinct style accessorized with secrets of her own. Hanna is the rich girly-girl who often rocks glamorous frilly pieces of the pastel palette. Her style is the lovechild of Tiffany and Co., Juicy Couture and Forever 21.
Spencer is the beautiful bookworm of the bunch who often rocks a preppy look reminiscent of what might happen if Tommy Hilfiger became the headmaster at Hogwarts. Her wardrobe is a fusion of menswear-inspired pieces that have a pinch of pretty including blazers, oxford flats and pleated skirts.
Aria carries off a sophisticated edgy look that has to keep up with the affair she is involved in with an older man. For her cultured, bohemian attire, Aria mixes and matches rich materials and muted colors that will become quick favorites for anyone who can easily spend a paycheck in Urban Outfitters. And who can forget Aria’s pheasant feather earring that she rocked in Season 1 (Visit owlita.com for something similar).
Sporty Spice Emily completes the bunch. As she questions her heart’s intentions, her style is something that leaves no inquiries unanswered. She’s laid back and simple preferring to wear sneakers and a messenger bag while her friends are getting mani/pedi’s in their pumps. Her style will ring familiar to avid shoppers of Aeropostale and Hollister. If the ladies can find their way through the lies, they’ll surely get voted “Best Dressed” in their class.
