Movie and TV style icons: their influence on our style is undeniable. Perhaps your inner twelve year old still dreams of having Cher Horowitz’s wardrobe? Or maybe, as a grown woman, Carrie Bradshaw is your ultimate #wardrobegoals

Today we are counting down our top movie and TV style icons…

10.Judie from ‘Doug’

As far as cartoon characters go, Judie from 90s Nickelodeon cartoon ‘Doug’ was pretty darn stylish.

A melodramatic, wannabe theatre actress, her style truly reflected her outgoing and artistic personality.

From her signature beret, to her purple boots, she knew how to rock that early 90s alternative style. Plus, she totally started our childhood obsession with purple! We will never be cool enough to wear sunglasses indoors…

9.Sabrina in ‘Sabrina The Teenage Witch’

You know the current 90s trends of velvet, chokers and star prints? Well, Sabrina Stoneheart from hit series ‘Sabrina The Teenage Witch’ was totally rocking them the first time round!

Any girl growing up in the 90s wanted to be Sabrina. And, as adults, we are enjoying the revival of all the styles we lived in as little girls far too much.

Best of all, Sabrina was just an everyday teenager going through the problems of high school. As far as style icons go, Sabrina is certainly one of the most relatable. Although we never did get those magic powers we were hoping for…

9. Isla Fisher in ‘Confessions Of A Shopoholic’

Who could forget Isla Fisher’s character in ‘Confessions of a Shopoholic’ and that dreamy, green scarf?

We love her because she is that ‘devil on the shoulder’ we all have. The one that tells us to splurge on that Prada bag. The one that says ‘go on…it’s 20% off!’

Husbands and boyfriends, please note: she is the reason for our bad shopping habits.

That green scarf **drools**. Luckily, unlike in the movie, this green scarf won’t cost you your job.

8. Audrey Horne from ‘Twin Peaks’

Raise your hand if you remember ‘Twin Peaks’? This early 90s, postmodern drama was the definition of trippy.

But whilst our male counterparts were all about Laura Palmer & her creepy, lookalike cousin Maddy, we were focusing on femme-fatale Audrey and her gorgeous, vintage-inspired wardrobe.

Her 50s-style full skirt, lingerie inspired pieces and chunky sweaters truly made her one of the most unique style icons of her time.

6. Serena Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Girl

‘Gossip Girl’ is arguably one of the most stylish TV series of it’s time. Although all of the characters are style icons in their own way, Serena Van Der Woodsen was the effortlessly chic school girl that was our teenage inspiration.

Always feminine and with a boho edge, Serena’s wardrobe was an array of rock-chick jackets, oversized bows and skinny jeans.

Being effortless was a key part of Serena’s style and a scarves are the definition of effortless.

Marissa from ‘The OC’ was the face of the mid 00s preppy era. As teens watching the show, we would always be left for an urge for knitted shrugs and ra ra skirts.

Although some of her fashion choices may seem cringey now, in the early 00s, she was so on point.

4. Bonnie from ‘Bonnie & Clyde’

Fact: No one will ever be able to rock a beret better than Bonnie from ‘Bonnie & Clyde’. Add glowing makeup and that hair into the mix, and you have one of the biggest TV style icons of the 1960s!

Her style was a clash of 30s elegance and modern 60s style. The result? Something sexy and mysterious..

Silk scarves were a must-have accessory for Bonnie. Steal her look with the floral paisley silk scarf.


3. Cher from ‘Clueless’

‘Daddy, it’s Calvin Klein. It’s like a really important designer’. Anyone growing up  in the 90s will know that this quote is said by non other than Cher Horowitz from Clueless.

The high school it girl rocked a plethora of preppy pieces that were total 90s style goals. Anyone suddenly feeling the need to wear plaid?

2. Blair Waldorf from ‘Gossip Girl’

We spent the majority of our teenage years debating whether Blair or Serena was the ultimate style icon. Although Serena had an effortless air about her, there was something about Blair’s polished style that was truly iconic.

From feminine pussybow blouses, to fitted wrap dresses, Blair was always the style queen of the series.

Plus: she totally made us have a love affair with headbands.

It wouldn’t be a piece about TV style icons without mentioning Carrie Bradshaw. I mean, she made tutus work!

From couture gowns, to endless floral embellishments, Carrie’s wardrobe really is what every career woman dreams of! And don’t even get us started on the shoes…
