Okay so I know I’m late to this but during my time at home this week my mam has gotten me into The Good Wife. All of the women in this programme dress fabulously but Alicia Florrick is something else. Her suits are always flawless whether she’s wearing an understated monochrome number or a royal blue peplum blazer. If, like me, you are obsessed with Alicia’s style this is what I’d recommend:
- Buy a good quality little black dress.
You can buy one of these from just about anywhere but you really can tell the difference between a shabby or well made black dress. Shops like Next can be really good for this but if you live near the York Designer Outlet like me then I would waste no time as there is a sale on Armani there now!
- Lots of blazers!
Blazers are another staple for any Florrite. There are loads of places to buy a good blazer and it needn’t cost even more than £30. One of my favourite monochrome blazers was a bargain buy from the H&M sale and charity shops can be a goldmine for vintage blazers that are still in pretty good nick. If you want something a bit more upmarket however then Hobbs might as well have been made for Alicia. Although blazers aren’t their main feature sometimes one pops up and it’s almost always in a bold satin finish that Alicia would love.
- Don’t over accessorize.
Dressing well is enough to catch somebodies, add too much extra and you just look naff. A nice watch and perhaps one other statement piece is more than enough! This is the same with colour, you only need one bright colour, don’t try to hard and become a peacock. Ps. Don’t forget a professional looking, well made bag to show you mean business.
This feels like the longest post ever and if you’ve stood by me then go you! You truly are on your way to being The Good Wife.
