By Youmn February 19, 2018 View all posts (108)

If we could swap our wardrobe for one from any TV show, then we would choose, without the shadow of a doubt, the outfits from Friends! The stylists did such a great job in choosing the clothes of the iconic New Yorkers that their wardrobes remain until today an inspiration for many of us.

Whether you’re watching the TV show for the first time (no judgment) or re-watching the same episode thrice in a row (rightfully so), you will undoubtedly be hit by a wave of nostalgia. You will instantly miss those denim clothes, multiple-layer outfits, neon accents and spaghetti-strap dresses.

More particularly, we thoroughly scrutinize any outfit worn by Rachel, Monica and Phoebe. The clothes the female trio wear is a vision. They are carefully picked for any occasion a young adult may find themselves in: NYE party, romantic dinner, professional interview, casual outerwear, beach vacation … just say the word, and they have it!

If you’re a Friends outfits fanatic, no need to dig through your mom’s closet or your old wardrobe, we got you covered!

Get inspired by these 15 outfits worn by Rachel, Monica and Phoebe, and find out where to shop their clothes!

15.) The College Campus Look

Monika always had the ability to take a casual look and make it look stylish and bang on-trend. The ripped jeans at the knee may be a shock for some as Monika is known for her cleaning obsession and love of all things tidy.

The red cami vest and ripped jeans are a great look to rock around the college campus. A comfortable style that lends itself to all sorts of functions and occasions.

This boho look of a simple plum colored top and full length pleated floral maxi skirt just screams summertime vibes. Wear this classic Pheobe style for an evening in the garden, where you can sip on wine and enjoy a beautiful sunset.

An easy to recreate style with any plain white top with the addition of a plaid skirt and knee length socks.

Rachel is a master of the simple and elegant everyday look, even with the paycheck of a Central Perk barista! We are head-over-heels for those high-waisted shorts that you can wear on different occasions. They are probably the most versatile piece of clothing in the whole series. And since graphic tees are in, it’s all a win!

Perfect for a chore day, when chilling in the park or a café, and even for a walk in the city. Simple, to-the-point and comfortable, this look could quickly become the go-to look for many busy people out there!

If you want to make your own version of Smelly Cat someday, make sure to match your performance with this brown-toned outfit that exudes comfort and good vibes!

In the ’90s, swinging from tight and short clothes to large and baggy ones was completely normal, and it still is today! So for this look, you may want to go for a larger size when choosing your lacy top.

7.) The Blue Velvet Babe Look

Rachel isn’t considered one of the best-dressed characters for no reason! She knows how to summon her natural elegance with the simplest outfits, and this one is no different, with her buttoned blue velvet top and black double-split skirt.

Since the ’90s fashion trend began, we’ve happily welcomed the comeback of velvet. Tops, blouses and even lingerie, all have used a touch of velvet, and we love it!

6.) The Layering-Done-Right Look

The (mandatory) denim jacket is a recurring theme in Friends outfits, so we couldn’t possibly leave it out. Here, Phoebe is playfully mixing a long button-down dress with a sleeveless washed-out denim jacket, and, OMG, it is unexpected and pretty! Since it was in the first episode ever of the series, we right-away knew what type of bold character Phoebe would be.

Bonus point for wearing those ponytails with all the confidence in the world!

5.) The Schoolgirl Look

The fact that Monica is a serious control freak is non-negotiable, but we’re glad it reflects on her clothing styles!

When she went for the look of the studious schoolgirl, everything fit perfectly! We can’t take our eyes off the straight-and-short black dress she’s wearing. It highlighted the vintage embroidered collar of the white blouse with its square neckline. (And that hair and makeup? Fantastic for the tidy look she was going for!)

What screams the ’90s more than denim jackets and overalls? These short denim overalls would be perfect for any casual day or weekend out. You can match them with a striped sleeveless shirt, like Rachel did, or a graphic tee, or even with a knitted jumper if you feel like it. The possibilities are endless …

These jumpers are refreshing and young, and once you throw a jacket over them, you will be ready for a bike ride in Central Park!

Who can argue that Phoebe has the most interesting clothing choices of all the Friends in all the seasons? With blazing colors and fierce choices, this gal doesn’t fear to express her true self through her clothes, and we absolutely dig it.

Here, she chose a light-hearted purple dress, that she charmingly covered with an open button-down sheer blouse. The detail that totally sells it to us? The tight knot at the waist – so refreshing and feminine.

Patched jeans? Check! A neon belt? Double-check! A knitted cardigan? Check, check, check!

This is officially the look of the ’90s we were looking for. The detail of the colored patched skirt is unique, quirky and loads of fun. In this day and age, you either thrift-shop it or make it yourself. But since denim skirts are back again, you have a multitude of places to shop from. Unleash your inner ’90s fashionista. Phoebe would approve!

When Monica brings her A-game, we know we’re in it for a treat.

With one sleek, simple lavender satin dress, she instantly captivated the hearts of viewers. This dress set the bar really high for the next parties Monica hosted in the following seasons. This might be the most elegant of our Friends outfits list! Everything is flawless: the dress, the wavy hairstyle, the minimalist jewelry and the bright smile!
