Top 10 TV Fashionistas

I blinked back tears this past December when Serena’s boots and Blair’s headbands made their last appearance on TV. The series finale of “Gossip Girl” in December marked the end of a glorious era — television fashion at its finest (second to “Sex and the City,” of course). Even when the plot turned into a nauseating disaster, S and B were still parading around in couture outfits each week, which was enough to keep me glued to my seat.

So with the demise of the best television fashion, I needed a new small screen style fix. Obviously, this was a grueling task — hours and hours spent watching “Pretty Little Liars,” “Downton Abbey,” “Mad Men,” “Girls,” “Hart of Dixie,” “New Girl,” and more. I still haven’t found the perfect TV fashionista replacement, but I have found some leading ladies that come pretty darn close.

So what makes a TV character a “fashionista”? My rating scale is based on commitment to a trademark look and consistency of excellence each week. We can’t all be Manhattan trust fund babes, so I’ve included characters with a range of unique styles, eras, locations, and budgets. Read ahead to see my top 10 TV style inspirations — and maybe pick up a good (err…guilty pleasure) show to watch, too.
