Sara Howard from The Alienist

On TNT’s The Alienist, Sara Howard (portrayed by Dakota Fanning) is the first female employed by the New York Police Department.  Sara is ambitious, hoping to use her position as Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt’s assistant as a stepping stone to one day becoming the first female police detective.  She joins Dr. Kreizler and John Moore in their investigation of the murders of young male prostitutes and later becomes a private investigator.  Sara comes from an affluent family and dresses as such in elaborate Victorian style.  Recreating 19th century fashion can be difficult, so it’s important to get creative by mixing and matching historical costume pieces with contemporary items.

Sharona Fleming from Monk

For former San Francisco Police Detective Adrian Monk, the world is a jungle of germs, compulsions, and amazing water. Fortunately for him (and perhaps a bit unfortunately for her), his practical nurse, Bitty Schram’s Sharona Fleming is there to help him navigate it. At least, she was for the first two and a half seasons. Despite her uptight title, Sharona’s sense of style — a mix of punk and sixties retro — evokes a whimsical, “devil may care” vibe, perhaps to compensate for her daily stressors as the single mother of a rambunctious son, and careworn assistant to a man struggling with extreme OCD. Here, we’ve put together an approximation of various outfits Sharona’s worn throughout her time on Monk – she generally favors V-necks, miniskirts, numerous necklaces and chokers, and the color blue.

Dave from Dave

Rapper and comedian Lil’ Dicky (born and credited as Dave Burd) plays a fictionalized version of himself on the new FX show Dave.  On the show, Dave is a semi-neurotic millennial working to achieve his dreams of becoming the next big rapper with the help of his producer Elz, girlfriend Ally, and hype man GaTa.  Dave’s style is eclectic and bold, with plenty of pattern mixing and vintage-looking sweaters and jackets, as well as a pastel colored suit to help him look fresh when meeting with record execs.

Haiji from Run with the Wind

Haiji balances his leadership duties in Run With The Wind (Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru).

Lena Luthor from Supergirl

Lena Luthor from Supergirl

Did someone say #bosslady? Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) is the CEO of L-Corp, a company she took over from her brother Lex, the self-proclaimed greatest criminal mind. When their agendas align, Lena is a staunch ally of Supergirl and her friends; independently, she considers Kara Danvers (Supergirl’s alter ego) a dear friend.

Lena’s outfits on The CW’s Supergirl reflect her businesslike attitude, revolving around dressy blouses, pencil skirts, and blazers. This tutorial shows you how to recreate two of her more formal outfits: one consisting of a blazer set, buttoned-down blouse, and vest; and one that incorporates a more adventurous sheer lace top that reminds me of one of Katie McGrath’s more medieval roles.

madara uchiha from naruto

Madara Uchiha from Naruto Shippuden

Madara Uchiha was one of the founders of Konohagakure. Madara saved and trained Obito Uchiha, and entrusted the latter with his plans and his name upon his eventual death, leading to Obito using the name Madara throughout much of his life. Madara wears a cowl neck robe and shinobi pants, with red samurai armor over top. Finding red armor can be difficult, so using red paint over light colored armor can help you achieve the same look.

The duo learn from each other and discover the values of life in The Ghost Bride.

Emily from Little Bear

Emily from Little Bear

In the summertime, Emily (voiced by Jennifer Martini) visits her grandmother’s home near the forest where Little Bear and his anthropomorphic animal friends live. There, they have a slew of adventures together, whether they’re going to the moon or contemplating the existence of mermaids. (“That’s the thing about mermaids … you never can tell!”) In the show, Emily is apparently seven years old, and dresses like a young girl from the early twentieth century. Recreating her outfit in contemporary adult women’s clothes can be, as Little Bear would say, “Iiiinteresting.”
