Regardless of your opinion of HBO’s Girls, the style choices on the show are remarkable in the truest sense of the word. Sometimes, it’s fantastic and realistic, but frequently it’s either totally out of reach, or debatable as to who had the audacity to manufacture the pieces and call them clothes. Given that we’re just days away from Sunday’s season three premiere, let’s take a look back at the first two seasons of Girls style choices.
Best Transparent Ensemble
Jemima Kirke‘s Jessa models a babysitting outfit that takes the cake, but honorable mention goes to that mesh tank top on Lena Dunham‘s Hannah. (via)
Least Annoying Matching Couple
This should make me cringe, but onesies are amazing end of story.
I’m going to go with a tie between this purple number and parroted psuedo-crop top. Normally I like rompers because I’m a sick freak with no morals, but these are a step too far. (via)
Best Look: Male Category
Jessa’s stepbrother, Frank, brings it in a folded down turtleneck, wide leg long jorts, a middle part, and the saddest puppy dog expression I’ve ever seen.
Most Bizarre Makeup Choice
Hannah really went for it when she let her coworkers re-shape her eyebrows.
Most Inappropriate Headpiece
Everyone’s dressed nicely, by why on earth is Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) wearing a fascinator to her friend’s shitty apartment?
Most Embarrassing Work Uniform
The beaded collar makes it art. Points to Jorma Taccone/Booth Jonathan’s sage green blazer.
Worst Hair, Ever
Marnie. Marnie who did this to you? Allison Williams has lovely hair, but everything went to shit here. Instead of curling her hair or doing something normal, they went for a center part with giant crimps. I just don’t even know anymore.
A Wedding Dress
Jessa’s off the shoulder, wizard-sleeved wedding dress was sort of perfect for her, but unfortunately the marriage wasn’t meant to be.
Weirdest Crop Top
Ugh, did they steal this from the SVU child porn episode?
Apron That I Most Want To Own
Yeah she does!
Most Plastic Dress
Marnie’s expensive, plastic dress appeared in one the of most depressing episodes yet, when she realizes she’s just a disposable pretty thing to her hip artist boyfriend.
Hannah’s Prettiest Look
This is Hannah’s best floral look by far (the girl loves florals), and she looks beautiful.
Most Enviable Leisurewear
Shoshanna’s tracksuit is making my 13-year-old self weep with envy.
