Could we be anymore hooked on Friends? Even years after it finished, it’s still our number one go-to for lazy day binge-watching, starting from the beginning more times than we can remember. And with each re-watch, our obsession with the clothes gets stronger and stronger, leaving us frantically googling 90s style. Our favourite this time around? Monica’s laid-back looks have been high on our radar. Here are some style lessons to learn from Monica Geller’s outfits.
#1 Blue jeans are a must
It seems the number one must-have in Monica’s wardrobe is a pair of perfect, classic blue jeans. So many of our favourites of Monica Geller’s outfits are centred around simple blue jeans with a classic cami, reminding us of the power of good basics. A well-fitting pair of blue jeans will see you through anything, dress up with a cropped cardigan and mules or dressed down with a baggy sweatshirt like on Monica’s down days. Whether you prefer straight leg, skinny jeans or even a culotte style, it doesn’t matter as long as your denim has that indigo shade that 90s style loved. For us, we’ll be opting for a mom jean cut to double-down on the 90s inspiration.
#2 Femininity with an edge
When it comes to occasion dressing, our mind goes straight back to Monica in that metallic silver dress for their New Year’s Eve party in season 1. The dark silver satin gives this dress the signature Monica edge, keeping the backless cut from feeling too classic or feminine. The contrast between the edgier front of the dress with its halterneck cut versus the bombshell back with the low back and leg slit is classic Monica Geller styling, doing feminine with a twist in true 90s style. This is easily one of our favourites of all the Friends outfits.
