Every other week, I break down the best of TV fashion, featuring my favorite looks from the last two weeks. This week, I seem to be obsessed with statement necklaces, and was inspired by Emma Approved and Ravenswood. Read on to check out the outfits:

Emma Approved is a hit show on YouTube made by the creators of the amazing, wildly popular web show, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It’s a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s novel Emma in a vlog format. Each episode is roughly five minutes long, and I highly suggest checking it out if you have time. I’m a huge Austen fangirl, and this show not only does her work justice, but provides a unique, updated twist.
Emma is a little bit spoiled and incredibly headstrong, but she genuinely cares about everyone’s happiness – she’s always trying to play matchmaker or help others improve themselves. In this show, Emma works as a matchmaker and heads up the lifestyle division of an emerging company. Her wardrobe is very unique: it’s simple and feminine, but she always has a few intricate details that tie her looks together.
To recreate Emma’s stylish and casual outfit, start with an olive-hued sleeveless blouse. Put on a geometric statement necklace and, to make it a little more wearable for winter, a black blazer. Slip on a pair of cute skinny jeans – these oxblood ones are very on-trend and pair perfectly with the green top.
Emma’s look seems effortless, so just accessorize with a midi ring and a few swipes of an orangey-nude lipstick. For a little extra pop, slip on a pair of leopard print flats to complete this fab ensemble that would most definitely be Emma approved (get it?).
2. Ravenswood (Season 1, Episode 5): Olivia’s Embellished Collar and Black Ensemble

Ravenswood is ABC’s new Pretty Little Liars spin-off, and, since I’m completely obsessed with PLL, of course I had to tune in. The show centers around Caleb (Hanna’s really cute boyfriend) and four strangers as they try to lift a deadly curse by digging deep into the town’s dark history.
I have been known to watch Pretty Little Liars with all the lights on because of how creepy it can be, but Ravenswood is even creepier. It’s a very good show so far, and I’ll keep watching, but is anyone else really worried that Caleb and Hanna are going to break up? I hope not – I love them together!
Olivia is haunted by all of the difficulties in her life, but she used to be bubbly and carefree. She’s a little bit quieter right now since she’s figuring out who she is and how to get past her issues. However, even though Olivia is having a huge life crisis, she still manages to look amazing. So far, her clothing is very on-trend and feminine, but with a few edgy accents.
Olivia’s look is perfect for an evening out with friends or even a day on campus when you feel like dressing up. To recreate her ensemble, start with an embellished black shirt or a dressier black tee layered with a statement collar necklace over top. Olivia’s outfit is mostly monochrome, so put on a pair of black jeans with a noticeably different fabric to break the look up a little bit – these coated motorcycle jeans are a trendy choice for this season.
To add a few more girly details to the outfit, grab some silver jewelry and a practical wristwatch. Slip on a white messenger bag and a pair of brightly-colored flats to make your accessories really pop. Finish by painting your nails a darker, more vivid color, like this fuchsia.
