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
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
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
10. Short shirt + high-waisted skirt
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.
