Doralee from 9 to 5

Doralee Rhodes is a character from the 1980 comedy film 9 to 5, and is played by Dolly Parton. The film follows three women who are secretaries at the same office who decide to get revenge on their rude and sexist boss and begin to run the business themselves, in their own way.

Doralee has a style that really really reflects Dolly’s personal style, with western and southern influence like her western-style blue dress and lace detailed sweaters and dresses. Complete the look with her iconic hairstyle or wig.

Ugly Betty

In Ugly Betty, Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) lands a secretarial job at a high fashion magazine despite her quirky sense of style. When it comes to her clothing, she’s not at all afraid to be bold with colors or patterns.

Mimi Bobeck

Mimi Bobeck (Kathy Kinney) made Drew Carey’s work life hell. If she wasn’t calling him names like Doughboy then she was coming up with pranks, like sending him to China while unconscious. You’ll have to have the same self-confidence that she does if you want to pull off her flamboyant look.

Pam Beesly Halpert

Pam Beesly is Dunder Mifflin’s receptionist-turned-office-manager-but-really-an-artist. Little did she know that she’d fall in love, find a best friend, and gain an extended family at her “boring” office job.

Miss Blankenship

Miss Blankenship was briefly Don Draper’s secretary during season 4 of Mad Men. She wasn’t exactly the youngest or hottest in the office, but we all enjoyed her outspokenness and quirky spirit. Don’t be fooled by her cataract goggles or her homemade afghan – she was even known to have had an escapade with young Roger Sterling back in the day.
