Oh, Quinn: You make such a good, midriff-baring nemesis. But—and sorry to say this, Daria—kid sister does have her endearing moments. And not just because everything about this show is so, so good. Her perky-and-popular look below. —erica

A fitted pink Markus Lupfer tee that Joey, Jeffy, and Jamie all looove.

A backpack—more for brushes and lip gloss than books—from Dusen Dusen.

image

A black Eugenia Kim beret—because this is how deep people dress.

What’s the opposite of an “In Character” shortage? Because that’s what’s happening over here.

In Character: Tommy Solomon

Before JGL charmed us enough to earn that nickname, he was a grown-ass extraterrestrial trapped in a teenage body on 3rd Rock from the Sun, and he had a serious thing for a center part. More on that look below. —erica

image

As far as this guy’s concerned, knit polos (like this NSF one) should be a wardrobe workhorse.

image

An Information Officer-appropriate Herschel wallet.

image

A jacket from Bridge & Burn that can blend right in in Rutherford, Ohio.

In Character: Rachel Green

Admit it: A lot of your nineties outfit inspo comes from teenagers, fictional or otherwise (see: Rayanne Graff, Drew Barrymore, Cher Horowitz, Fiona Apple). But if you’re looking for someone who really nails the I’m-trying-to-be-an-adult-ok? thing, Rachel Green’s your girl—especially during season one of Friends, which premiered 20 years ago this week (WHAT). —erica

image

A 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater, for snuggling Ross and/or Marcel.

image

One last dress—from Rag & Bone—charged to her dad’s credit card.

image

A Band of Outsiders button-down that can cappuccino spills from waitressing at Central Perk.

There’s a whole lot more where this came from!

What made Entourage so good? Ari Gold’s rants, Turtle’s girl issues, Mandy Moore’s Mandy Moore-ness, and Drama’s, well…everything about Drama, including his sense of style. We break it down below. —erica

image

The sort of Notte shirt that can do +1 at a Cannes premiere.

image

Aviators from Illesteva—to hide behind in the presence of Viking Quest super-fans.

image

A form-fitting Olebar Brown shirt—hopefully it serves as a reminder to Vinnie to eat right.

More o’ this! Right over here!

In Character: Valerie Cherish

I definitely waited too long to watch The Comeback. What was I doing, exactly? And if you don’t yet know Valerie Cherish, washed-up sitcom star with expensive hair, a new catchphrase, and lots of hope, then I don’t know what you’ve been up to, either. —erica

image

A Stella McCartney for Adidas jacket that becomes an Aunt Sassy trademark.

image

A low-cut Issa dress that is ready to hit the upfronts.

image

A Journelle robe—ideal for recording personal video diary entries after a long day on-set.

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

image

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.

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.
