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 New Girl and The Vampire Diaries. Read on to check out the outfits:
1. New Girl (Season 3, Episode 16): Jess’s Black and White Printed Dress

New Girl is one of my favorite shows to watch after a long day of studying (well, to be honest, it’s more like a long day of drinking coffee and chatting on Facebook – which is somehow still exhausting). The show is bubbly, funny, and light. It’s not the kind of show where I count down the days until the next episode (ahem, Sherlock), but I always enjoy watching it, and I always want more after it’s over.
I’ve done a few recaps on New Girl fashion (see here and here), but I’m absolutely obsessed with Jess’s style. It’s adorable and girly, but still very comfortable and casual. I am so jealous of her wardrobe, hair, and pretty much everything else. I especially loved this black-and-white dress she wore in a recent episode.
To recreate Jess’s outfit, which would be perfect for a day of classes or meetings, start by cinching a belt around the waist of a black-and-white printed dress. I know Jess’s was a houndstooth pattern, but this one is similar, and perfect for the (hopefully!) rising temperatures. Layer a loose-fitting, wine-colored cardigan over top. Next, slip on a pair of opaque tights and some black heeled booties.
Jess loves cute, fun accessories, and this ring shaped like a pair of black rimmed glasses, one of Jess’s staples, is perfect for the look! Accessorize with a cute pair of earrings or maybe a bracelet or two. To recreate one of her classic hairstyles, pull a strand of hair from each side of your face back behind your head and pin them together with a cute black hair bow. Complete the ensemble with a cool-toned red lipstick.
2. The Vampire Diaries (Season 5, Episode 13): Katherine’s Leather Jacket and Red Tank Top

The Vampire Diaries is one of the most frustratingly addictive shows on TV right now. I just want Elena and Damon to live happily ever after! If you haven’t seen it, it’s a drama about, you guessed it, vampires. I don’t want to spoil anything for new viewers, but I would definitely recommend checking the show out. Just be warned – you may become obsessed with it!
This week, I absolutely adorned this outfit worn by Katherine. It’s cool and casual, which makes it the ideal look to rock on campus.
To recreate Katherine’s casual, yet edgy ensemble, start with a red tank top and a dark brown faux leather jacket – the bright red adds a fun pop of color to the outfit. Slip on a pair of slightly faded blue jeans to play up the casual vibe, and contrast that with a pair of trendy buckled faux leather boots.
Next, sling a black bag over your shoulder to carry all of your campus necessities (for me, it’s a notebook, highlighters in every conceivable color, and lip balm). Finish off with a small pair of earrings or a large pendant necklace – I’m definitely in love with this elephant one!
