Claire Randall Fraser from Outlander Season 2

Claire Randall (played by Caitriona Balfe) is the main protagonist of the Starz series Outlander.  Claire travels through time to 1700s Scotland where she meets Jamie Fraser, whom she eventually marries.  In Season 2 of the acclaimed series, Claire finds herself in the French Court, where she dons a beautiful red dress and matching earrings and shoes.  To truly embody the fashion of the time, the undergarments are nearly as important as the dress itself, so you’ll need to be comfortable in a hoop skirt and crinoline to make sure your gown has enough volume in the silhouette.  It will be nearly impossible to find Claire’s intricate period shoes, so look for heels with a low profile and straps to evoke a similar feel.

Originally an ex-army nurse from the 1940’s, Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) visits Scotland on a second honeymoon with her husband and accidentally walks through a time portal to the 1700’s on the smash Starz series Outlander. When she stumbles through the portal, Scotland is in the midst of the Jacobite Uprising. She is promptly rescued by a dashing, handsome Highlander named Jamie Fraser. Claire must decide whether to stay with Jamie or return to her husband, all the while navigating personal and world dramas. This guide is for her iconic first episode outfit, a classic 1940’s look.
