For decades, television shows adored by fans have become key assets to pop culture. The impact is huge, influencing viewers’ attitudes about the world around them, shaping beliefs about race, gender and class and the political landscape.
Television also sets the tone for fashion, style, music, art, food and more. Not only do we imitate what stars are wearing, but we also copy the clothing they wear on TV and the future trends they spark.
Calling All Camo-Couture
MASH was a major award-winning TV drama with comedic undertones. The 1972-1983 series took place at the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in Uijeongbu, South Korea during the Korean War.
The fashion was all about the military green. Camouflage was big, and today, that look is sizzling hot once again. Model Bella Hadid has been photographed in an over-sized and comfy army jumpsuit and military cap.
Army green vests, jackets, anoraks and tee-shirts have been featured on the runways for both women and men.
Bad-A** Bikers Reign Supreme
Biker chic is the baddest unisex look around, and we can thank Sons of Anarchy for inspiring legions of fans. The black moto jacket or leather vest like Jax wears is essential, so cool details like zippers and snaps matter.
Dusty denim, ripped jeans and engineer boots all envelop the classic motorcycle culture. Add a skull tee-shirt, and you’re good to go. This is comfy, easy-going sexy apparel that relies on tried and true classics.
Brainy Fashion Equals Style
The Big Bang Theory not only cracks us up but also sets some amazing trends for young people. Everyone seems to love their plaid flannel shirts, especially Penny and Howard. In fact, Penny has rocked plaid flannel shirt-dresses in red, along with over-sized grey sweatshirts with pretty lace peek-a-boo bra straps and tons of layer sweaters.
Leonard is into graphic tee-shirts which are so on-trend this season and likes to wear them under open button-down shirts.
Sheldon is often seen layering his short-sleeve tee-shirts over long-sleeved tees. He also loves displaying a shirt with a slogan or image like his Man of Steel Zod tee-shirt.
Wow-Wee: WWE On Parade
Let’s be honest; the professionals who step into the ring are in awesome, sculpted shape these days, especially the lady wrestlers. Toned and rock-hard abs mean lots of crop tops which are on-trend this season.
Short leather jackets, capri leggings and high-tops all create the perfect fit athleisure lifestyle look. Add a pair of knit knee-high socks with stripes at the top with lightning-struck skull and crossbones, and you’re working it like WWE.
The Converse Chuck Taylor® ‘XX Hi’ Knee High Sneaker sells out every time.
Eye candy jewelry that includes black emo wristbands, bangles and gummy bands completes the entire ensemble.
You cannot deny that TV show apparel is alive and well, no matter the decade or season. The influences are heavy, and viewers are paying attention to who is wearing what.
This is pop culture at its finest.
