- “Friends” is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
- Rachel, Phoebe, and Monica all wore unforgettable outfits throughout the show, and some of the looks are perfect for fall.
- Here are 11 iconic outfits that you can easily re-create today.
Even though “Friends” ended over a decade ago, we can still take some fashion inspiration from the starring ladies of the show.
We’ve rounded up some inspiration for your fall wardrobe from each season of “Friends” and where you can find some similar styles today.
Rachel mastered the sock, sweater and skirt combination.
In the season one episode, “The One Where the Monkey Got Away,” Rachel wears a cute sock and skirt combo.
This is a classic look, and probably one of your favourite Rachel outfits if you are a “Friends” fanatic. The turtleneck paired with a skirt and high socks is perfect for the weird, transitional weather that can accompany the start of fall.
This mini skirt from Urban Outfitters is similar to Rachel’s if you want to re-create this look.
Monica kept her look classic in black and white.
While Rachel’s turtleneck sweater with the plaid skirt was iconic, but we can’t overlook one of Monica’s trendy outfits in this episode. Her dress-over-the-shirt look is in right now, and one that can be easily replicated.
This dress from Free People is similar to a modern take on Monica’s look.
Phoebe’s long dress and scrunchie are perfect for fall.
In season two’s “The One After the Super Bowl: Pt 1,” Phoebe rocks a long dress and scrunchie.
Who wants to think about pairing two pieces of clothing together when you can throw on a long, flowy dress, put your hair up with a scrunchie and look just as cute? You can look effortlessly chic with this inspiration from Phoebe.
This maxi dress from Free People has a similar length and floral pattern as Phoebe’s.
Monica’s tank top and skirt was effortless.
In season three’s, “The One with Frank JR,” Monica’s tank and skirt stole the show.
She wore another great transitional weather outfit. A tank, skirt, some tights, and close-toed shoes are all you need. Plus, if it’s a little colder, throw on a jacket and you’re good to go.
Rachel’s professional pantsuit is worth copying.
Another iconic ensemble from Rachel Green is this pantsuit she wore to work in season four’s “The One Where They’re Going to the Party.”
While the whole pantsuit isn’t overly unique, we can take some hints from Rach’s professional style. A good blazer can go a long way, and be paired with a bunch of different outfit ideas. A cute dress, jeans and a tucked-in shirt, or overalls are just a few things that come to mind.
This long blazer from Zara could be paired with dress slacks or a dress.
Monica showed us how to add a pop of colour.
In season five’s episode, “The One Where Phoebe Hates PBS,” Monica rocked a pop of colour.
This outfit may be simple, but it reminds us of something so important when it comes to fall fashion – use colours. Black, tan, and grey seem to be everyone’s go-to fall colour palette, but don’t be afraid to add some colour in there.
This pink sweater from Aerie is similar to Monica’s, and it will help you add a pop of colour to your wardrobe, too.
Rachel embraces graphic tees.
In season six’s “The One Where Phoebe Runs,” Rachel rocks a graphic tee.
Her three-quarter sleeve shirt is a fall staple you can wear a variety of ways. The 3/4 length of Rachel’s shirt here makes it a great transitional piece that you can wear with jeans for being out on the town during the day, or with joggers for a comfy cute outfit you can wear around your house.
Here’s a comfy tee from Target with a similar sleeve length that you can dress up or down.
Rachel wasn’t afraid to wear patterns.
In season seven’s, “The One with Rachel’s Assistant,” Rachel’s turtleneck tank and patterned skirt stole the show.
This is another outfit where you can have some fun with patterns. Rachel keeps her top simple to counteract the statement skirt. Plus, a knee-length skirt will keep you warm in fall while still looking professional.
This patterned skirt from H&M is similar to Rachel’s, making it a great option for re-creating Rachel’s look.
Monica’s dress, tights, and boots are a wonderful combination.
In season eight, “The One with Monica’s Boots” actually does feature some cute boots.
This look of Monica’s is classic and fairly easy to pull off. All you need is a patterned dress, tights, high-knee boots, and a simple belt to pull it all together. The layering makes the outfit seem more complex than it actually is, and it can be a great out-to-dinner outfit or chic work attire.
This dress from Forever 21 has a similar colour and pattern as Monica’s if you’re looking to replicate the look.
Rachel’s billowy top is nice and flowy.
In season nine’s “The One with the Sharks” Rachel wears a billowy top.
Rachel’s shirt features a cosy fall silhouette. Typically, during the fall, we think oversized, comfy sweaters and tops, but this billowy top could be a fun way to change-up in your fall wardrobe.
Rachel effortlessly pairs colourful jeans and a denim jacket.
In season 10’s “The One Where Rachel’s Sister Babysits,” Rachel has a variety of denim pieces.
If you love denim but aren’t aiming for a “Canadian tuxedo” look, take notes from Rachel, who wore her classic denim jacket with subtle, coloured jeans.
These coloured jeans from Madewell can help you achieve a similar look.
