Friends, the most loved American sitcom, aired for the first time in 1994-2004, which makes already more than a decade old. However, it arrived on Netflix recently giving millennials and old fans a chance to binge-watch the series and notice what hasn’t been noticed all these years ago.
Although some of the jokes and lines might not be “in” anymore, there’s another aspect of the show that today’s young adults are admiring: the fashion.
The character’s wardrobes are totally back on point at the moment. If you have a look at Rachel’s, Monica’s and Phoebe’s outfits starting from the first seasons of Friends and up until the very last episode, you’ll fall in love! And it all looks pretty similar to what’s happening right now; ranging from the classic denim and the plaid prints to the oversized shirts and overalls.
Here are a few of their items that are still in style nowadays:
1- The one with the ripped jeans
The one thing we see all the time now has been there since the 90s! Who would have known ripped jeans would come back in style? Maybe Monica did?
2- The one with the overalls
Overalls are one of the most comfortable things to ever wear. After being popular back in the 90s, they have come back and now they look even more attractive! I mean, we girls would want to look exactly like Rachel in those jeans salopettes.
3- The one with the see-through sleeves
Worn by Monica and Rachel, sheer, lace and see-through sleeved blouses still make a strong modern fashion statement. With the right pants, they’d be great for a smart casual, semi-formal, or even casual event.
4- The one with the floral / patterned dresses
Appealing to the feminine side we girls have, these vintage dresses obviously inspire us for our today outfits, am I right?
5- The one with the checkered shirts
Have checkered shirts ever gone out of style? Teamed with the right shade of jeans, simple shoes and a stylish haircut, and your outfit will look fab and effortless!
6- The one with high-waist flare pants
High-waist printed flare pants are definitely more in style now than ever! A modest and stylish alternative to skinny pants, and will be great if worn with a loose short top or tucked in shirt.
7- The one with the mom jeans + white sneakers
Nobody aces high waist and mom jeans more than Monica, and they have definitely come back in style. However, we might want to get rid of those tube socks now.
8- The one with the denim jackets / cardigans / shirts
Denim denim denim! Monica, Rachel and even haphazard Phoebe have all agreed on denim, but in all the different styles that are definitely still fashionable to this day and on. May it be a jacket, a shirt or a cardigan, denim is the number one must-have in all of our wardrobes and probably the only item that goes with everything.
9- The one with the plaid pants
Still one of the things that don’t go old-fashioned and could be styled in millions of ways.
10- The one with the short denim dungarees
Unless you are under 7, short denim dungarees are not easy to pull off. However, rules don’t apply when it comes to Rachel, especially when she teams up hers with a simple black jacket. She looks cute, playful and definitely inspiring to us nowadays.
Even if the show’s sense of humor has proven to fade a little, the fashion seems to be timeless, giving away style lessons that will always “be there for you”.
