Yup, Rachel Green invented fashion.
It’s been weeks since the much-awaited “FRIENDS: The Reunion” streamed on HBO Go, but it seems like we still can’t get enough of the cult classic. While the cast reminisced their good times on set, netizens are talking about how the show’s fashion choices can still work in today’s trends.
I just think every outfit and hairstyle Rachel green ever had looked good on her EVERY SINGLE ONE— Tami ? (@gillieswidow) June 3, 2021
If you’re having any wardrobe trouble, don’t worry! Pheobe, Rachel, and Monica are fashion icons who can help you out!
V-neck with overalls
Who knew doing the laundry can look this good? Well, Monica Geller’s stylist definitely knows timeless fashion. In fact, you can wear this outfit at the mall and it would work! Throw in some pearls and you won’t look like you’re doing laundry at all.
Black overalls with white sneakers
We all know that Rachel Green is the OG style stunner, and this outfit is just one of the many ‘fits that really caught our attention.
Get that classic black-and-white look by pairing your black overalls with a white short-sleeved shirt, and put on your white sneaks for that laid-back vibe.
Pink is always a good idea
Phoebe Buffay surely made our Barbie dreams come true with this iconic dress! She wore it with a pair of statement earrings and white stockings, giving us that ‘70s nostalgia. This would look phenomenal to wear on a holiday party with your family (when it’s allowed!), don’t you think?
Classic white tee
Let’s be honest, Joey Tribbiani (in all his James Dean-esque glory) can rock anything, even a simple white shirt! Wear this tucked into a pair of high-waist jeans or trousers, and it would give you a balance of laid-back and put together.
Denim on denim
Keep it casual with a long-sleeved denim button-down and some mid-waist jeans, just like Monica! This look can work with a pair of white sneaks and gold hoops. Make sure not to button your shirt all the way up!
Pop of color
If you’re tired of monochromatic ‘fits, throw in a bright-colored top to tie the look together. Rachel wore a black jacket over her yellow shirt, and paired it with a pair of knee-high black booties to keep it sultry and casual at the same time.
Flaunt your curves by wearing a form-fitting dress! This classic mint green number was what Rachel wore to Ross’ museum event, but you can also wear it to a girl’s night out or a dinner date. So chic!
Casual bowling shirt
Who said you have to be sporty to wear a bowling shirt? Phoebe certainly didn’t! A jersey, bowling shirt, or football shirt is a staple in every casual girl’s closet. You can just throw them on and pair them with denims and white sneakers, and you’re good to go!
Plaid is still in! One of Rachel’s most iconic looks is the school girl style, when she wore a long-sleeved cropped sweater with a short plaid skirt, paired with knee-high socks. This ‘fit will definitely bring back high school cheerleading memories.
Green on blue
Green on blue might seem like a weird combination, but Phoebe surely made it work. She wore a maxi peacock dress with a green mid-riff cardigan, which you can also rock for sure! Wear this on that holiday vacation you’ve been planning for so long.
Need a style inspo for your work meeting? Rachel Green’s got your back! You can wear a simple white polo underneath a black blazer, and top it off with gold accessories for that classy touch. You can also wear your hair up for a more sophisticated vibe! If you don’t want to look too posh, however, you can curl your hair into beach waves just like Rachel did.
Plaid cropped top
One thing we have learned from Rachel is that plaid works with almost everything. In the fifth episode of the first season, she wore a tie-knot plaid cropped top with navy blue capris, paired with white Keds to complete the look. Going grocery shopping or running errands? This ‘fit is perfect for you!
Plain black mid-riff
You’ve likely seen this exact outfit on a lot of Gen Zs too! Pairing a black mid-riff top with striped loose pants is the perfect combination for a comfy and casual day. They’re both super versatile pieces that can be included in a variety of outfits, which makes them a staple for every closet!
