The Timeless Style of “Friends”
The Timeless Style of “Friends”
The Friends series has been going on for 24 years and has an audience of all sorts. Aside from being our ultimate Sunday afternoon binge-watch, Friends has proven a recurring favourite for another reason: The Style!
Rachel Green is perhaps the most stylish character who has fascinated us by our television screens.
While Courtney Cox’s Monica and Lisa Kudrow’s Phoebe both had their fair share of oh-so-90s style, it’s Jennifer Anniston’s turn as Rachel Green that delivered the shows most iconic outfits.
Seeing as her character was an executive for Ralph Lauren and a buyer at Bloomingdales, it’s no surprise a fair amount of effort was put into making Anniston’s on-screen character the height of 90s chic.
From the most casual clothes of the ’90s to the fancy dersses for nights; the 90’s style was shared with the audience in every aspect of the recent past and Rachel is highly acclaimed.
Yesterday, today and tomorrow; these are the unforgettable outfits of Rachel Green that we wouldn’t mind borrowing and use them.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Jennifer Aniston got to talking about 90s fashion comebacks. She reflected fondly over squared-toe loafers and high-waisted jeans, both of which she has held on to since her Friends days.
Naturally, this got us thinking about all of the outfits her character, Rachel Green, wears to show us timeless outfits that we would TOTALLY still wear them today.
The “Friends” character — brought to life by Jennifer Aniston, who turns 49 on February 11 — appeared on everyone’s fashion radar when she made her debut wearing an extravagant wedding dress in the very first episode of the series.
From that moment on, she captured the true essence of ’90s and early 2000s style, making everything from plain shirts and T-shirts to button-up vests and bold, floral dresses look trendy. And even though “Friends” may be outdated now, Rachel’s fashion looks have certainly passed the test of time.
As much as we all love Friends, it’s chock-full of ’90s and 2000s trends we left behind. Still, there are a surprising amount of Rachel Green outfits that are totally back in today’s style .
Some of the looks are timeless, and some of them are back in style thanks to all the ’90s/early ‘2000s nostalgia that’s been making the rounds.Some of them were epic fails, of course, but we’re here to focus on the positive today — and maybe even scoop up some fashion inspiration along the way.
It’s not often you look back on TV shows from the past and have positive things to say about the style choices. When we rewatched approximately five hours worth of hit 90s sitcom Friends during the weekend, the feeling was entirely different…
It’s no secret that 90s fashion is making a massive revival and the wardrobes of the Friends is a common point for everyone else who regard the fashion as “must”.
The Friends character gave rise to what’s still one of the most demanding haircuts in history and she could be a showcase for all of by using trendy pieces. When she was off-duty, Rachel made romantic maxi skirts look cool with simple tees, and she paired tights with smart boots for the office.
Though Rachel maintained a job at Bloomingdale’s for many seasons, nowadays she would get her fashion fix at Zara. We shopped for 26 of her most memorable looks at the retailer, only to find ourselves brimming with Halloween costume ideas. Read on for a look at them all . . .
If there’s any television character whose wardrobe can totally stand the rest of time, it’s Rachel Green from Friends. I mean, that’s probably because she’s played by Jennifer Aniston, who is totally the most perfect human in the history of mankind (aside from Beyoncé, don’t kill me, Amen). Betches all over the world have been trying to emulate Jen’s style since 1994, and that’s probably never going to change. Here are five of Rachel’s iconic outfits you can totally steal in 2018.
From her iconic hair to the unforgettable bridesmaids dress she wore to Barry and Mindy’s wedding to her incredible array of both mini skirts and formal gowns to her incredible professional office-wear, Rachel was the one we wanted to dress like (Hi Phoebe and Monica, we love you too).
The outfits of Rachel, Her best outfits were classic and timeless, and her worst were that era’s fashion vomit, but there’s no denying that more than 20 years later, we’re still fascinated by Rachel’s finest styles . And sometimes, even when she was bad, she was so, so good.
