In Character Quinn Morgendorffer

image

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.

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

In Character Susan Lawrence

image

image

image

I distinctly remember the first time I saw Big thinking that Elizabeth Perkins, as Susan Lawrence, was such a grown-up lady. Like, it didn’t get more adult than her. Well, she was 28 when that movie came out. Here’s how she looked the part. —erica

In Character Sister Bear

image

image

image

Overalls are having a moment, but you don’t need to tell Sister Bear that. Girlfriend’s been wearing them since 1974. Let’s dive into her whole pink-happy look, shall we? —erica

image

A sweet-looking Equipment sweater that maybe helps compensate for the fact that she punched her baby brother?

A Ban.do bow that’ll keep the fur out of her face during the Bear Country three-miler.

Pink Wildfox overalls that would make Lizzy, Queenie, and Babs totally jealous.

In Character Tommy Solomon

image

image

image

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.

In Character Rachel Green

image

image

image

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

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

In Character Johnny "Drama" Chase

image

image

image

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

In Character Gina from Empire Records

image

image

image

When you were in high school, you probably knew girls like Gina. She was trouble—but the fun kind. She loved attention. She was witty (“Well, ‘Sinead O’Rebellion.’ Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior.”). She was a big ol’ pile of sass. And her whole 1995 look? So not shocking: It feels very right now. —erica

In Character Valerie Cherish

image

image

image

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
