In Character

In Character Raylan Givens

image

image

image

If you’re never seen Justified, you probably don’t truly understand the appeal of Timothy Olyphant. But give this show three episodes, and, well, you’ll be right there with me—100% chance. —erica

image

A Gitman Vintage shirt that often ends up in a crumpled pile on his motel-room floor.

image

A black tie from Kris Van Assche to show those Crowders that he’s serious about this U.S. Marshal business.

image

A signature cowboy hat by Goorin Bros. that is worth getting into a bar brawl over.

Get your “In Character” fix!

In Character Nina Sergeevna

image

image

image

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 Kimmy Gibbler

image

image

image

She was like the female version of Steve Urkel, this one. Yes, Kimmy managed to annoy the whole Tanner clan—even infant Michelle, I’m willing to wager—but her style was somehow not half as out-there as she was. The essentials below. —erica

image

Girl never met a mock neck she didn’t like—and this take from Christopher Kane is pretty top-notch.

image

A Marc by Marc Jacobs scrunchie—because it was the late eighties/early nineties, guys.

image

A boxy Suno blazer worn to prove to Jesse just how grown-up she was.

More of this! A lot more!

In Character Princess Peach

image

image

image

Her mood swings give her special abilities, she forgives Bowser for being such a G.D. jerk, and she can play baseball, basketball, tennis, and golf with the best of them—as far as princesses go, Mario’s main squeeze is a pretty cool chick. Here, how to cop her look. —erica

image

Dannijo earrings that can handle some Mario Kart off-roading. 

image

A Jenni Kayne dress that kills in Mushroom Kingdom or anywhere, really.

image

A necklace from House of Harlow that looks like it could maybe, possibly be traded in for an extra life.

It’s “In Character” madness over here.

In Character Selina Meyer

image

image

image

No offense, pantsuits, but Selina Meyer wants nothing to do with you—as far as she’s concerned, you’ve got about as much appeal as Jonah Ryan. Here’s how she makes her #2 look #1. —erica

image

A L’Agence shirt that gives any outbursts a feminine flair.

image

A gold cuff from Winifred Grace to keep her company on the book tour.

image

A slick red Jonathan Saunders dress—one of Gary’s very favorites. 

More of this! Get into it.

In Character Van Wilder

image

image

image

Ok, no, this is not a GOOD movie—and not just because Tara Reid is the most serious thing going here. But if you’re looking for a rainy-day excuse to spend a few hours with your couch and Ryan Reynolds? Well, it’s as good as anything going. Also: College-boy dressing in 2002—something to behold. —erica

image

A Zanerobe shirt that eventually gets him lei’d.

image

An Alexander McQueen chain wallet that makes the frat brothers of DIK especially nervous.

image

A Saturdays hat, worn backwards to convince Taj to go for Naomi (“That’s ‘I moan’ backwards.”). 

More, more, more “In Character!”

In Character Clarissa Darling

image

image

image

You know what Clarissa probably couldn’t explain? Her personal style. I mean, she was pretty much willing to try anything, and she wasn’t even remotely interested in coordinating—that matching business for Fergface (ew). —erica

image

A Venessa Arizaga bracelet with some ‘tude—possibly a gift from Sam?

image

An Alice + Olivia vest—because this one would never pass up a layering opportunity.

image

Knit biker shorts by ALL Knitwear, to be worn under something plaid or floral or just plain crazy.

If you’re itching for more “In Character,” have at it.

In Character Daniel Desario

image

image

image

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.
