Fashion Role Model: Rachel Green

She lives in New York City, is a buyer for Ralph Lauren, has five best friends, and has the most amazing style of the 90’s. She even has a haircut named after her. Rachel Green is practically living every fashionista’s dream.

Now that “Friends” is streaming on Netflix, I obviously had to re-watch the whole series again for the fifth time (not an exaggeration). During my binge watch, I couldn’t help but notice just how amazing her outfits are, especially now that the 90’s style is coming back. Her style is also so diverse that she could be dressed in overalls in one scene and a mini skirt in another.

Throughout the show, I have picked out my top 5 favorite outfits that Rachel Green proudly wore during the run of “Friends,” along with some affordable versions so you can recreate her trendy looks.

1. The Business Woman

I love this look because I never see business styled outfits with color. I only ever see black. The green really grabs your attention but is still professional enough to wear to work. You can find a similar window pane skirt at Nordstrom.

2. Bring On the Overalls

I am not ashamed to admit but I have purchased three pairs of overalls this season. Rachel wears overalls a lot throughout the show. This is just one of the many adorable ways she styles them. You can find the perfect pair of overalls at Forever 21.

3. American Pride

I was never really a fan of shorts and tights until I saw this look. I love the way that the high waisted shorts are paired with a casual top. It makes it more of an everyday outfit rather than a “going out” outfit. I had a hard time trying to find a simple shirt that says “USA” but you can get the same look by piecing an American Eagle baseball cut shirt with some high waisted black shorts, from Nasty Gal, and sheer black tights.

4. Knee Socks and Plaid Skirts

This look is definitely my favorite Rachel Green outfit. It defines the meaning of cute and casual. I can’t go anywhere without socks so I love that the knee socks are used as a statement accessory. You can find these awesome socks at Kohl’s and the plaid skirt at Macy’s.

5. The Series Finale

The last outfit that Rachel Green was seen wearing before the show came to a final close was this stunning assemble. This outfit was so popular amongst fans that it was displayed in the Pop Up Central Perk in New York City last fall. Snatch these black heeled boots at Guess and this gray skirt at Gap.

I will never get tired of Rachel’s fabulous, unique style. The only thing I am missing is that amazing two bedroom Greenwich Village apartment that I can’t afford. At least I can just live vicariously through the lives of Rachel and her five best pals.
