Style Spotting: Weird Fashion from Girls Episode 5

Yes, we all know that HBO’s “Girls” is wildly popular thanks to its painfully accurate depiction of that time of adulthood between college and becoming a real person. Yes, Lena Dunham has broken down some very narrow Hollywood beauty ideals and paved the way for the non-anorexic world to feel as confident as they should. Behind all the Lena Dunhams and Judd Apatows is Jenn Rogien – the show’s costume designer.

I kind of love where she has taken the fashion in the show. I’m not saying that ill-fitting “shorteralls” are my thing, I’m just saying that we all have days when we wear outfits like the one pictured above that Hannah wore in season 2 episode 5. The color is about as unflattering as it gets, and the fit even more so. Rogien is pretty genius for choosing that painful number, though, because it adds a whole other layer of realism to Dunham’s already hyper-relatable dialogue and story lines. Thanks to her, we can all feel less alone when our romper rides up on our walk to the bodega.

About the author


Emily is a New Yorker trapped in a Floridian's body and loves every minute of her big city life. With a major in international business and years of being surrounded by ill-fitting suits and all the wrong shoes, she learned that the importance of fashion needs to be communicated to the world. To her, fashion is on the same level as charity work and feeding hungry children. Emily can be found frolicking the streets of her gayborhood enjoying the off-color humor of the gays.
