14 of Rory Gilmore's most iconic outfits on 'Gilmore Girls'

Warner Bros. TelevisionThroughout her years on the show, Rory Gilmore has debuted some iconic looks.

Fashion might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Rory Gilmore from “Gilmore Girls.” Instead, you probably think about school, books, and, of course, coffee.

While Rory never focused much on fashion, she did wear some incredibly trendy signature outfits. She stuck to the basics and kept things simple, but as she grew up, her wardrobe grew with her.

Here are some of Rory Gilmore’s most iconic looks.


When she wore this gorgeous blue gown that totally captured Logan’s heart.

When she looked super sophisticated and chic in this Chanel-like blazer.

In college, Rory was all about slim jeans and fitted blazers, and this outfit is a great example of it. She looks trendy and very put together in this Chanel-like blazer.


When she wore a mismatched cardigan and skirt.

Warner Bros.She mixes fabrics and colours.

Some of Rory’s outfits were more chic and streamlined, and others were a little more mismatched. Take this one, which is one of the more conservative looks Rory wore while on a break from Yale.


When she really wanted to impress her grandpa on a golf outing.

Warner Bros.The hat added some colour.

It’s hard to forget the first time Rory hung out with her grandpa. Being Rory, she went all out to impress him with this golfing look.


When she danced in style in this red dress.

Warner Bros.The polka dots are perfect.

So many things happened during this episode: Rory and Lorelai almost won the dancing competition in Stars Hollow, Rory tried to make Jess’s girlfriend jealous, and she got dumped for the first time. But, through it all, she wore this fantastic red polka-dot dress.


When she rocked this simple Rory outfit at the hospital.

Warner Bros.The look seemed comfortable.

This was a classic Rory look – a cute but understated sweater and a pair of comfortable-looking jeans. It’s simple, but it really works.


When she wore this beautiful red coat and looked way more sophisticated than a high school student.

Warner Bros.Lorelei’s coat is lovely, too.

Although Rory’s high school wardrobe was pretty much on point as to what a typical early-2000s teen would wear, this red coat and the kitten heels definitely made her look sophisticated.


When she was ready for winter in yet another red coat.

Warner Bros.The jacket adds a pop of colour.

Her winter style was quite cosy and fashionable. With a muted grey sweater, white scarf and bold red coat, she balances her look very well.

A big part of Rory’s wardrobe change happened when she was distancing herself from her mum, and this black dress is a prime example. The bow heels are a fun touch.


When she un-boxed a Birkin bag in her casual outfit.

Warner Bros.She keeps her look very simple.

One of the most authentic things about Rory’s style is that it wasn’t centered around designer names and trends. When Logan bought her this designer Birkin bag, she didn’t even know what it was.

With a simple cardigan and white tank top, the outfit is distinctly Rory Gilmore.
