It’s no secret (pun intended) that the main characters and actresses of the hit TV series Pretty Little Liars are style icons.
I’ve gotten my share of people asking, “How do I dress like Troian? Or how do I dress like the character Aria?” When asked to provide celebrity style inspiration, lots of girls are saying “I love Spencer’s style.” And even, “I want to steal Shay Mitchell’s closet.”
Well, sometimes it can be confusing as to whether people like the style of the character or the actual person. A lot of us forget that stylists and costume designers are the ones who piece together and create looks for the character; the character’s style can be a lot different from the actresses’.
I’ve spent some time researching the aesthetic costume designer, Mandy Line, had in mind when creating looks for these characters. I even took it a step ahead and dug deep to find what the girl’s consider their own personal styles.
Below, I’ve provided a set of “must-haves” that you’ll need to achieve both the characters and the actress’s style!
Troian Bellisario ”Classic and feminine.” Pair shorts, knee highs and boots with a blazer, long necklaces and a fedora.
Spencer Hastings “Preppy, menswear inspired, classic.” Pair button downs with argyle sweaters and oxford shoes.
Shay Mitchell “Girly.” Think sequins, ruffles, floral dresses and lots of accessories.
Emily Fields “Sporty, Comfortable.” Wear striped tops, jean mini skirts, converse and loose layers
Lucy Hale “Girly with an edge.” Pair girly clothing with tough accessories
Aria Montgomery “Eclectic, edgy with some vintage mixed in.” Think feather earrings, tights, black with splashes of color here and there
Ashley Benson “Vintage Girly.” Blend different styles, mix vintage pieces with leather jackets, mini skirts and heels
Hanna Marin “Trendy, glamorous, sophisticated.” She’s all about looking fashion forward and wearing the latest brands and trends
