Every other week, I break down the best of TV fashion, featuring my favorite looks from the last two weeks. This week, I was inspired by Game of Thrones and Arrow. Read on to check out the outfits:
1. Game of Thrones (Season 4, Episode 8): Daenerys' Mint Maxi Dress

If you haven't heard of Game of Thrones by now, there's a large chance that you are living under a rock, so you should probably get that sorted out. It's a very popular HBO fantasy series based off of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. It's got dragons, political intrigue, zombie-like creatures, and attractive bearded men - literally everything you could ever want in a show.
Fair warning: there's lots of violence, cursing, and frequent sex/nudity, so this might not be something you'd want to watch with your grandmother. But I'd highly recommend giving GoT a try - it's highly addictive, and almost everyone I know watches and loves it, regardless of whether or not they usually like fantasy shows.

Daenerys, in addition to being a total badass, always looks flawless - in part, due to being portrayed by the stunning Emilia Clarke, but also because of her fabulous style. She generally favors loose clothing, maxi dresses with interesting cut-outs, and lots of leather accessories.
To recreate her look, start with a mint maxi dress and a pair of leather sandals. If you want the dress to be a little more form-fitting, cinch a leather belt around your waist. Since we can't all have dragons as accessories, make do with an intricate gold cuff - it may not fly or breathe fire, but it'll still turn heads! Finish with a few coats of gold nail polish and some texturizing salt spray to get Daenerys' volume and touchable curls.
2. Arrow (Season 2, Episode 23): Felicity's Pink Tank and Neutral Cardigan

I've talked about Arrow and the wonderfully shirtless main character quite frequently (see here and here for more recaps), but I just caught up to the most recent episodes, and I had forgotten how good it is... and not just because of the shirtless guy, I swear.
If you're a fan of superhero movies, comic books, or Smallville, you'll probably really like this show. I'll admit that it is a little angsty and melodramatic, and sometimes I can't help but roll my eyes at some of the characters' questionable life choices, but the archery, action, and superhero goodness makes up for it, I promise!
Felicity's outfit looks casual and comfy, but it's still very polished. To get the look, start with a coral tank top, then layer a neutral-colored open cardigan overtop. To make this getup a little more summer-friendly, switch out the black pants for a pair of trendy high-waisted shorts.
This outfit looks effortless because of the classic, simple accessories - a cute pair of flats, dangly earrings, and a pendant necklace are all you really need to complete the look. This ensemble would be perfect for a warm day on campus or grabbing lunch with some friends!
