If you’re reading this post, you, like me, are probably wondering how you can possibly wait for January to find out what happens on the uber-addicting show How to Get Away With Murder. I can’t tell you who started the fire, but I can give you a little HTGAWM fashion fix.

Michaela Pratt, played by the gorgeous Aja Naomi King, is my favorite character on the show. She’s smart, driven, stylish, and kind of mysterious. I love seeing her rise to Annalise’s challenges, but I love seeing her sit on the couch, gossip, and eat ice cream with her BFF Connor even more. (It’s just a tad more relatable.)

Michaela’s style is polished, girly, a little preppy and a little sexy. You could probably recreate a lot of her looks with pieces already in your closet (cozy sweaters and skinnies, bandage dresses, mini skirts). 

Below, I’ve styled Michaela-worthy outfits for every occasion. You can totally get away with stealing her look.

Michaela class outfit

Products: Sweater – Oasis, Jeans – Mango, Booties – Justfab, Bar necklace – Nordstrom, Layered necklace – Old Navy

The easiest Michaela outfit formula? Skinny jeans (dark denim, gray, or black) + a cozy sweater (bonus points if it’s striped or floral) + delicate jewelry. Sleek and simple heeled booties are a great finishing touch, but black ballet flats would be perfect, too. You could even add strappy stilettos for a casual party.

To head to class, find a great structured tote or top-handle bag for holding all your essentials. You’ll have your top-of-the-class trophy in hand in no time.

Night Out

Michaela night out outfit

Products: Dress – Dorothy Perkins, Heels – GoJane, Bag – Mango, Earrings – Bloomingdales

Although Michaela’s style is usually pretty classic, she isn’t afraid of rocking a more flirty look for a night out.  A bandage dress is the Michaela pick for fancy occasions. In lieu of a clutch, try a cute, chain-strap mini bag.

Even when she gets glam, Michaela doesn’t over-accessorize. Swap out your everyday studs for dangly, delicate earrings and maybe add a couple metallic bracelets or rings. Strappy sandals finish the drop-dead gorgeous look.


Michaela work outfit

Products: Blazer – Macy’s, Top – Eloquii, Skirt – J.Crew Factory, Heels- GoJane, Earrings – Lord & Taylor

Michaela dresses to impress when she’s working a case. Look professional but not boring in a printed skirt (plaid and abstract floral are Michaela faves) that hits just above the knee. Pair with a bow-neck blouse for a look that’s classy and feminine.

A structured jacket pulls everything together, be it in the form of a tweed moto, classic knit blazer, or perfectly tailored, long coat. Add cool black heels, one or two pieces of simple jewelry, and black tights. Talk about killing it.

  1. What a coincidence…I’ve been binge watching this weekend…
    Please do one on Laurel’s style! And Annalise’s coats are to die for.
