Candy from Love and Death

Candy Montgomery is from the crime drama TV series Love and Death, and is played by Elizabeth Olsen, based on a true story. Candy is the main character who is an active member in her church and a mother that gets herself into deep trouble when getting involved with another member of the church, Allan Gore.

This story takes place in 1980 Texas. Fitting Candy’s personality, she wears modest clothing that is slightly dated but still wears some pieces that are more trendy or risky in her community. She wears lots of muted tones that are reminiscent of the 70s and some pops of bright colors like red. You’ll usually see her in lots of denim, with stylish flare jeans and casual striped tops.

Wade from Elemental

Wade is the watery character from the new Disney and Pixar animated film Elemental and is voiced by Mamoudou Athie. He is cool and collected, calm, and a rule follower. You can say he goes with the flow. Through his journey in this film, he meets Ember who is the fiery opposite of him, and they begin to learn from each other.

Wade is a character made up of water. He’s made up of lots of teal, purple, and iridescent or clear colors, paired with yellow shirts like the button down and tie, or the yellow shirt with green details. To dress like this cool character, layer a blue shirt under a sheer iridescent shirt and layer a yellow shirt on top. Pair this with iridescent pants or light purple jeans with a sheer blue layer of pants on top to give the clear and color shifting watery effect.

Allan from Barbie (2023)

There’s only one Allan. Allan is played by Michael Cera in the new movie Barbie by Greta Gerwig. He is based off of a real life and unpopular doll in the Barbie universe. He’s not a Ken but was made and released with the intention of being a buddy to Ken-He’s just Allan.

Allan’s costume is based off of the original 1960s doll and looks identical to its outfit. He wears a white and multicolored striped and collared shirt, blue shorts, blue sandals or flip-flops, and has orange hair.

President Barbie from Barbie (2023)

President Barbie is played by Issa Rae in the new movie Barbie by Greta Gerwig. President Barbie exists in the Barbie world in the film, and is leader over the pink utopia with her all-female team.

President Barbie’s look isn’t a traditional presidential one. Issa was involved in the ideation of the costume and wanted her to look like what a little girl’s idea of what a president would look like. She wears a gorgeous poofy pink princess dress with gold details. She always wears a pink sash that says president over every outfit.

Weird Barbie from Barbie (2023)

Weird Barbie, played by Kate McKinnon is from the new Barbie movie, by Greta Gerwig. Weird Barbie is based off of those Barbies that you may have had when you were a kid that you played with too hard, like cutting their hair and drawing on them with markers. Gerwig revealed that in the movie she is an all-knowing kind of character like The Giver and lives separately from the other Barbies in her own wacky house.

To dress like this hilarious character, use bright fabric paint on a pink puffy dress, a short blonde wig to cut up unevenly and add blue and pink hair chalk, face paint crayons, and pair with tall patterned boots.

Greg Hirsch from Succession

Greg Hirsch, played by Nicholas Braun, is from the series Succession. Greg is the cousin of the Roy siblings and works his way up in the huge family company that is Waystar Royco. He has the most endearing personality in the show because of his nervousness and least corrupt behavior in the family. Tom Wambsgans becomes his mentor and friend that is a joy to watch in the show, and a hilarious duo.

Greg’s style changes throughout the season as he makes his way up the company. He started at the very bottom- fired from a theme park where he would dress pretty sloppy but as he gains wealth and finds a place at Waystar, his haircuts become cleaner and he begins wearing sharp suits. There are in-between stages where layering is used where you can really see this transition and growth with a combination of some old pieces that he is still holding onto, and new pieces as he begins to get paid more and more.

Tom Wambsgans from Succession

Tom Wambsgans played by Matthew MacFadyen, is from the series Succession. Tom is married to one of Logan Roy’s children, Siobhan “Shiv” Roy. He works for Waystar Royco and is ambitious in the way he is always working to grow in the company and becomes very successful in that. He becomes a mentor, friend, and ‘Disgusting Brother’ to Greg Hirsch, which creates a hilarious duo to watch.

Tom’s style is a classic and simple one. He doesn’t stand out from the crowd and the rest of the company, but is always dressed appropriately in every occasion. He wears lots of navy blue suits, and ties in certain instances. For more casual events he tends to wear a simple nice vest over a dress shirt, and in both cases, always a watch. His style throughout the series really shows that he is a true underdog and quietly works his way up to the top.

Nadia from Russian Doll

Nadia from the Netflix dark comedy-drama series Russian Doll is played by the iconic Natasha Lyonne, who also created the show. Nadia is the stylish protagonist of the series where we follow her living the same day, her birthday, over and over. Her strong/tough personality reflects in her wardrobe. She is a true New Yorker and therefore wears lots of black and grey. Her outfit almost always consists of a silk blouse and a wool coat. She always wears a gold necklace and plays with layering. She is serious in her clothing but always hilariously dismissive towards the world in the show. You can never go wrong with Natasha Lyonne!

Janine Teagues from Abbott Elementary

Janine Teagues, played by the show’s creator Quinta Brunson, is the main character from the show Abbott Elementary. Janine is a second grade teacher at the elementary school in the series. She is a determined and kind character that is passionate about helping her students and coworkers be the best versions of themselves that they can be. Janine has a school-appropriate but stylish and comfy style to all of her outfits. She wears lots of warm colors, chunky sweaters, and fun patterns. You’ll usually see her in a turtle or mock-neck, maxi dresses and fun and flowy pants or skirts.

Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid (2023)

Prince Eric from the new Disney 2023 film, The Little Mermaid is played by the charming Jonah Hauer-King. This live action version of the beloved animated film is a fun and refreshing new take on the original. Prince Eric’s costume that he wears throughout the movie closely resembles the one from the original film. Not to mention his iconic flowy white shirt and riding boots. He wears lots of deep blues, with red details like the button holes on his vest. He wears the perfect costume for a prince at sea!
