15 Iconic Outfits from Classic TV Characters

Marge Simpson's Green Dress & Red Necklace

One great thing about animated television shows is that each of the characters have a signature look because they never change clothes! Marge Simpson’s is probably the most memorable, with her light green dress, red necklace, and iconic blue hair.

Elaine Benes' Blazer & Midi Skirt

Like it or not, much of what Elaine wore in Seinfeld would still be in style today (with a little tailoring). She wore a variety of things, but she always seemed to come back to the classic blazer, midi skirt, and loafers.

Blossom's Floppy Hat

Blossom Russo made famous the floppy hat in the TV show, Blossom, and we miss her quirky sense of style. She paired her iconic hat with wild, clashing colors, yet somehow made it work! We can only hope that Mayim Bialik will channel some of this outlandish style as Amy Farrah Fowler in the Big Bang Theory

Lucille Ball's Patterned Shirt Dresses

Lucille Ball was the star of I Love Lucy, and we love her charming sense of style almost as much as her quirky antics! She primarily wore an assortment of patterned shirt dresses—and our favorite is definitely the red checkered one.

Buffy Summers' Red Leather Pants & Black Halter

Buffy Summers, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, killed monsters and looked good doing it in her (often) skin-baring ensembles. Her most memorable outfit is a pair of red leather pants combined with a black halter top that gave her the perfect balance of sexy and dangerous.

Joey Potter's Jeans & Tee

Can we all agree that Joey Potter of Dawson’s Creek started the jeans and a tee trend? She was rocking this low-key, timeless outfit long before it became mainstream, and we are simply amazed at the staying power of her signature ensemble.

Tia & Tamara's Denim Ensembles

Tia and Tamara took denim on denim to a whole new level on the show Sister Sister. They routinely wore blue jeans paired with a bold-patterned top, a denim vest, AND a denim hat—and we can’t help but think that their lovable personalities and “no rules” sense of style kicked off the denim on denim trend.

Daisy Duke's Daisy Dukes

Can you name a more memorable article of clothing from classic television than the denim cutoffs that Daisy Duke made famous in Dukes of Hazzard? Ever since this show aired, super-short denim shorts have been dubbed “Daisy Dukes” and we don’t see this moniker changing anytime soon.

Cher Horowitz's Tartan Ensemble

Cher Horowitz of the TV show (and movie) Clueless had a bold, unique sense of style that you couldn’t help but admire—even if you could never see yourself wearing it. She loved patterns and bold colors, which all come together in her signature look: the yellow tartan pants and yellow blouse.

Laura Petrie's Cigarette Pants

The late Mary Tyler Moore, who portrayed Laura Petrie in the Dick Van Dyke Show, took a bold step when she had her character wear cigarette-style pants and a high-necked top instead of a traditional dress. We love her take on the American housewife and how it paved the way for other women to think outside the dress.

Kelly Kapowski's Mom Jeans, Bandeau & Suspenders

Kelly Kapowski of Saved by the Bell is the ultimate 90s girl. She was quite fond of crop tops and high-waisted bottoms, so naturally her mom jeans + white bandeau + black suspenders inspired the fashion choices of many 90s kids—and even fashionistas of today!

Ally McBeal's Lavender Skirt Suit

Ally McBeal, the titular young attorney of the hit Fox show, isn’t one to go unnoticed. She defied norms in the 90s by consistently wearing super-short skirts paired with the more traditional lawyer staples (button downs and blazers). Her lavender-colored skirt suit in particular highlights her femininity and badassery.

Blair Waldorf's A-Line Skirt & Knee High Socks

Blair Waldorf, of the hit show Gossip Girl, was an overall fashion icon, so it’s difficult to choose only one of her stylish looks! But, there is one outfit that stands out above the rest as a quintessential “Blair outfit’: a black a-line skirt, knee high socks, a white button-down, and a headband.

Laverne DeFazio's Monogrammed Top & Red Skirt

It’s difficult to decide whose look is more iconic between our favorite roommates, Laverne and Shirley, but we’d have to go with Laverne. Her off-white top with a huge monogrammed “L” plus a striking red midi skirt is so classically her, and it's somehow still in style!

Carrie Bradshaw's White Tutu and Pink Tank

Carrie Bradshaw graced the world with many a memorable look on Sex and the City, but the one that just screams “Carrie” is her white tutu and pink tank top outfit. It’s fun, it’s flirty, and if we saw someone wearing this look in real life, we’d be transported back to Manhattan in a heartbeat.
