Today, I thought I'd take a break from the usual film/music inspired posts and do a TV inspired post as an homage to my favorite program right now and yesterday's shocking season finale.
Community is side-splittingly hilarious, uniquely self-aware and charmingly touching. It has one of the best ensemble casts in television history including Chevy Chase, Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi and Yvette Nicole Brown.
I wish I could express the same enthusiasm for the season finale episode, but it just felt out of character and had an overly sensationalist vibe in my opinion. However, don't let that deter you from checking out the show. I assure you the rest of the episodes are phenomenal.
All the characters have distinct styles and I really look forward to seeing what they'll be wearing in each episode. The three characters I've picked to study are Gillian Jacob's Britta Perry, Alison Brie's Annie Edison and Danny Pudi's Abed Nadir.
Britta is the most worldly member of the core group of characters. She is a staunch feminist and activist and this is reflected in her style. Britta almost always wears jeans and leather or denim jackets. She eschews a sweet and feminine look for one that is more grown-up and earthy. Since Gillian Jacobs is pretty short in comparison to her male cast mates, Britta is almost always seen in high heeled boots.
Annie is the innocent, naive character. In contrast to Britta's more adult, androgynous look, Annie's style is super feminine and youthful. She always wears skirts and dresses with cardigans and has an affinity for color and floral patterns.
Abed is the most stylish of the male characters. His style is quirky, colorful and relaxed just like his character. Abed usually wears tee shirts (often with V necks) paired with a cardigan or hoodie, skinny jeans and sneakers. Abed is a bit more daring fashion-wise than his peers.
I wish I had the time to write about the styles of all the characters on Community. They all impress and delight me every week. And now I leave you with an amusing clip from the show.
