Hello everyone, just a quick apology for having not posted for a while, unfortunately we couldn’t hide from coursework forever. So we thought we would come back with a bit of a bang- we have all wished we were a part of the ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’ cast at one point or another, so we thought we would give you a few tips on how to dress like the stars of one of TV’s most successful shows.
The show ran from 1994 to 2004 covering a whole decade of changing styles and fashions. We have based the looks on the earlier series as episode after episode is full of great looks that are easy to achieve.
Phoebe, Rachel and Monica have very differing styles. Monica rocks high waisted, loose fitting trousers with a crop top, she always manages to look comfy and casual but super sexy at the same time. Phoebe encapsulates the quirky, bohemian look, although some of her outfit combinations are questionable, you can always rely on her for colour, fabulous patterns and iconic rings. The long, floaty dresses and skirts she wears provide a more feminine alternative to the typical 90’s style for women. Rachel is dubbed the most stylish of the three to echo her fashion-driven character. She embodies a relatively preppy look with long sports socks, tennis skirts and cropped jumpers and she is famous for bringing sex appeal to the sports branded sweatshirts.

We enlisted the help of three friends (no pun intended) so we could provide style tips based on Joey, Chandler and Ross. All three have quite a similar, simple style with Joey being the most relaxed of the three. T-shirts, shirts and jeans (usually oversized and sometimes sporting a bold pattern or print) make up the majority of the boys’ wardrobes. We advise tucking your tops into your jeans to get that 90’s look. Oh, and of course a sweater vest if you’re Chandler.
