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 the The Mindy Project and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Read on to check out the outfits!

1. The Mindy Project (Season 2, Episode 2): Mindy’s Fitted Leather Jacket and Black Tank

I was ecstatic when I found out that FOX’s hit comedy The Mindy Project was renewed for a second season, and now that it’s here, I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve covered it before (see here and here for more looks), but it’s just so good that I couldn’t resist covering it again!

The show stars one of my favorite comedians, Mindy Kaling, who also writes each episode. It’s hilarious, cute, and girly – when I watch TMP, I feel like I’m at a sleepover, since it has that same fun, excited, and bubbly vibe. If you haven’t seen The Mindy Project yet, I’d definitely recommend giving it a try!

To recreate Mindy’s look, which is perfect for going out on the weekend, start with a black silk tank. Layer on a quilted leather jacket and slip on a mini skirt – a staple in Mindy’s closet – in a dark, rich color. Add a pair of strappy heels and a small purse with gorgeous chain detailing – this one’s reminiscent of Chanel’s classic bag, but without the hefty price tag.

Mindy keeps the accessories light and glamorous, so add a pair of silver sparkly earrings and a cute bracelet or two. Finish with a coat of a gorgeous dark green nail polish, which ties together this sophisticated and fun ensemble.

2. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (Season 1, Episode 1): Skye’s Brown Leather Jacket and Patterned Scarf

ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is definitely a show to catch this fall. It follows the S.H.I.E.L.D law-enforcement team from Marvel’s blockbuster hit, The Avengers, as they investigate strange, often otherworldly events and protect the planet from mass destruction. It’s funny, fast-paced, and action-packed. If the pilot is any indication, this show is going to be like having a short new Marvel movie every single week, which is exactly what I want and need in my life.

Skye, a talented computer hacker, is charming and adorable. She has strong convictions and isn’t afraid to think outside of the box to get what she wants. She’s still somewhat of a mystery, but I think she’ll be one of my favorite characters – partially because her outfits in this episode were so cute!

To recreate Skye’s outfit, which is absolutely perfect for fall, start with a pair of dark-wash jeans and a golden yellow tank top. Layer the blouse with a brown leather jacket and a patterned scarf to add dimension to the ensemble. Add stacked bracelets for a practical yet girly vibe, then grab a pair of cognac colored riding boots that are perfect for walking through campus in autumn.

For the finishing touch, add a pop of contrasting color with nail polish or a pair of earrings – I suggest a dark blue to go with the yellow tank (not just because those are my college colors, I swear!). It really ties the entire look together.

    Eva, nice catch! Thanks, I fixed it. I totally agree with you about The Mindy Project; it’s my favorite, and I just want to be Mindy Kaling. So badly. She’s amazing.

    Shannon, I can’t wait! Coulson is definitely one of my nerd crushes and S.H.I.E.L.D is shaping up to be one of my new favorite shows. I can’t wait to see the Geek Chic post!

    That ASOS purse is calling my name. Let’s just hope I get one it before it sells out.
