In Character: Nina Sergeevna

Question 1: Are you guys watching The Americans? Question 2: If not, why? Nina Sergeevna—an employee at the Soviet embassy played by the sultry-as-what Annet Mahendru—is one of those supporting characters that sucks you right in. And her wardrobe’s pretty baller, too. —erica

image

A Band of Outsiders shirtdress down to woo an FBI agent.

image

A serious, shrunken blazer from The Row that belies that underwear collection of hers.

image

Ursa Major earrings that take a strange turn—just like her story (BOOM).

If you’re looking for an “In Character” fix, here’s your chance.

In Character: Daniel Desario

In 1999, Judd Apatow and Paul Feig gave us James Franco. No matter how you feel about that 15 years later, you’ve gotta admit that dude was pretty stellar on Freaks and Geeks. He was the king of the burnouts and best bud to Nick Andopolis—a character played by Jason Segel, who, BY THE WAY, also made his debut on this show. Bam. —erica

Wearing this Lynn & Lawrence hat means not having to shower. Right?

image

A Rag & Bone henley in an earthy neutral—freak wardrobe essential at McKinley High School.

image

A rumpled Carven shirt that Kim Kelly would totally borrow-slash-steal.

Get more o’ this business. A whole lot more.

Ok, gang: The Boy Meets World spinoff premieres in July. Are you ready? Do you know how to find the Disney Channel on your teevee? While you figure all that out, let’s revisit the original and Shawn’s just-bad-boy, TGIF-approp look. —erica

image

A Scotch & Soda leather jacket that really sells the rebellious-best-friend thing.

image

A Kris Van Assche necklace Mr. Feeny probably thinks is silly.

image

A Shipley & Halmos flannel that, along with that hair, draws in all the girls at John Adams High.

This way to the “In Character” archives…

In Character: Lane Kim

I know that Gilmore Girls is a TV show and that we didn’t actually get to watch Lane Kim grow up, but it feels like we did, right? There was the purple-hair-dye incident! The drunken phone call to her mom! The twins! And all the while, she managed to be Rory’s bestie—hardly an easy task. —erica

image

A collared, short-sleeve Crippen shirt that Mrs. Kim would approve of.

image

Studious-looking Selima glasses that still worked with her Hep Alien, rocker-girl look.

image

An elephant sweater from Giada Forte, as comforting as breakfast dates with Rory at Luke’s.

This guy’s not afraid of color, pattern, or an all-in dance move. Let’s give it up for Albert Clifford. Oh, and, while we’re here: Go Bayside! Beat Valley! —erica

image

A Gitman Bros. shirt way too cool for Preppy.

image

Saturdays swim trunks that would make a splash at Malibu Sands.

image

A T by Alexander Wang tank—to put the effects of wresting and football practice on display.

If you’re looking for more “In Character,” you’ve come to the right place.

Roster of nineties Tiger Beat heartthrobs: Joey Lawrence, Luke Perry, Devon Sawa, and little, chubby-cheeked Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who, on Home Improvement, played the middle son of a man who grunted to express emotion. Still got a soft spot for JTT? Well, then, you can hang this in your locker cubicle. —erica

image

A sleeveless plaid shirt—from Thom Browne—worn like a jacket for reasons still unknown.

image

Frame overalls that Brad probably made fun of.

Diemme boots ready to hang on the set of Tool Time with Al.

In Character: Angela Chase

What were Angela Chase’s calling cards? The hair. Some combat boots. A pimple that was the subject of an entire My So-Called Life episode. And, it turns out, a wardrobe of dresses that would make any Doc Martined nineties girl swoon. Their 2014 doppelgängers below… —erica

image

A velvet With Hearts In My Eyes sitch to wear to a school dance with Brian…in hopes that you-know-who will show up.

image

A Mary Meyer dress that Rayanne would totally want to borrow for partying with Tino.

image

An Ilana Kohn number that works under a flannel for exchanging, like, seven words with Jordan Catalano on a field trip.

In Character: Gina Linetti

image

You know what sent me into a rage cage over the last few weeks? The fact that there’s not new T.V. to watch (if you lost access to your friend’s HBO GO account, at least). So I decided to fall down the Brooklyn Nine-Nine rabbit hole where I encountered the hilarious and truly bizarre Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti. I was gonna say that she’d love for you to give her a shot, too, but honestly, I’m pretty sure she doesn’t give a rat’s ass. —erica

image

A horsey shirt from Equipment that makes her seem far sweeter and cheerier than she is.

image

Because when Holt says to wear a tie, you wear a (Hill-Side) tie.

image

Prismsport leggings ready for a real serious Floorgasm routine.

Can you take more “In Character?” This is the place.

In Character: Brandon Walsh

Dylan may have been the 90210er who induced the most heart palpitations, but there’s something so reliably appealing about Brandon—his vaguely James Dean style, the way he dealt with Brenda’s antics, and, yah, that hair. —erica

image

A Save Khaki henley—for late nights working with Andrea on the West Beverly Blaze.

image

A Scotch & Soda jacket that can be tossed on over a Peach Pit uniform.

image

Octagonal House of Harlow sunglasses for checking out convertible-driving CA girls.

Whoa, get a load of all of these “In Character” posts.

In Character: Lilly Kane

You know what this frigid winter weather is perfect for? Watching all of Veronica Mars. I mean, T minus not that many days ‘til the movie comes out, you guys! But don’t worry: Once you get going, it’ll take you no time at all to plow through it. You might not get any sleep, but you will know who killed that feisty Lilly Kane (A.K.A. Amanda Seyfried)—and that’s what’s important. —erica

image

A 3.1 Phillip Lim tee fit for a Neptune High pep squad fundraiser.

image

A T by Alexander Wang pink bikini—for wooing an 09er, a PCHer, and a movie star.

image

A prom dress from Haute Hippie that does NOT get the Celeste Kane seal of approval.

We know what you’re thinking: What about Logan? We got him covered, too.
