20 Things Rachel Wore In "Friends" That You'd Definitely Wear Now

The one with a totally boss wardrobe.

1. Slouchy dungarees

Floral vest underneath, navy jumper tied on top: the only reference you need for bringing back this trend.

2. Dungaree shorts

All hail Osh Kosh B'gosh! Especially worn with a sleeveless sweater.

3. Belted fold-down dungarees

So that's how you avoid looking like you're in *NSync.

4. A denim waistcoat

Worn open, layered, or fastened up as a little top. If there was an emoji for Rachel's wardrobe, the mini denim waistcoat would be it.

5. A fitted denim shirt

Warner Brothers

So, so '90s, but so right for now. Just ask Marques'Almeida.

6. A cheongsam dress or blouse

Yet to be resurrected along with the rest of the '90s, but totally worth a comeback – maybe even in crushed velvet.

7. Rachel's pyjama game was strong

So much plaid and varsity, so little impression that she hasn't left the sofa for days. A lesson in loungewear.

8. Excellent mum jeans

Always worn with a shrunken T-shirt for maximum midriff impact.

9. The waist-tied shirt

If you've got abs like JenAn, you'd absolutely want to show them.

10. Short shirt + high-waisted skirt

Warner Brothers

The shape created by Rachel's mini Central Perk apron, always complimented with a short shirt, can absolutely be recreated with a high-waisted mini skater skirt. The definitive Rachel silhouette.

11. Short shirt and high-waisted capri pants

The episode where Ross and Rachel get into a sexually tense bust-up with a woman in the launderette ("The One With the East German Laundry Detergent", for pedantic types), features one of Rachel's best outfits ever. Would absolutely wear now.

12. Non-jean denim items

Mum jeans aside, Rachel tended to stick to cute skirts and dressed, but her wardrobe was still heavy on denim, and this top and mini skirt are fine examples of Rachel style to eBay-search now.

13. The '90s slip dress

So strong, all these years later.

14. A slip dress and jersey combo

Because spaghetti straps alone are still not safe for work.

15. This plaid dress

16. Mini kilt and knee socks

And to think Alicia Silverstone's look in Clueless has been getting all the retro credit for this look.

17. A mens' work-shirt

18. Checked trousers

Why limit the plaid revival to shirts? These trousers are a fine accompaniment to a navy cashmere jumper.

19. The olive-green "break-up" coat

Warner Brothers

In "The One With the Morning After" (when Rachel finds out Ross shagged that other girl, as if you need to be told), Ross looks like even more of a chump than he already should simply because the spurned Rachel looks so good, and this wonderful coat plays no small part in that fact.

20. A side-split mini skirt

Warner Brothers

From Season 4, Friends becomes a real fashion desert – maybe they changed wardrobe departments, maybe 1998–2004 were just a style dead-zone, IDK – but Rachel at least makes an effort with tailored, split-to-the-side miniskirts, which would totally work now.

Still got it...
