After posting “Top Ten Movies with Style,” I received some feedback that suggested that I should do a follow-up with television shows. Without further ado, let me present to you the “Top Ten TV Shows with Style!”
- Mad Men. Sure, we’re a little biased since former ModCloth model, Hannah, works on the set, but we think the gorgeous and precise costuming of this compelling A&E series makes it a definite choice for #1!
- Sex and the City is an obvious choice because of its mainstreaming of high fashion, most notably in making “Manolo Blahnik” a household name.
- The Mary Tyler Moore Show was one of the first series to focus on the working woman (and the working woman’s wardrobe) – and don’t forget that iconic hat-tossing in the opening credits!
- Beverly Hills 90210 (The Original) had a major influence on 1990s style by popularizing acid wash jeans, bangs, and bodysuits.
- My So-Called Life was the epitome of grunge-era style: lots of flannel, combat boots, and teen angst.
- The L Word. Sleek and chic LA Style! If you haven’t seen an episode yet, you better hurry – there are only two left!
- Twin Peaks. Who would have thought a show about a murder in the small town in the Pacific Northwest would be so stylish? We love Josie’s 1930s-style coif and bright red lips, but we especially can’t get enough of Audrey Horne’s sexy vintage-inspired looks.
- Pushing Daisies. This little show with a cult following has a big impact on indie style. We’re sad to see it go!
- Gossip Girl. Preppy chic has never been so fun…or scandalous.
- Six Feet Under still haunts us. We miss the show’s dark wit and Claire’s boho style.
