How to Get Away With Murder Style

Shonda has freakin' done it again.  While I am one of the few who never got in to Grey's Anatomy (yeah, yeah, I know), I did binge watch Scandal on Netflix only to develop the biggest woman crush on Kerry Washington.  So naturally, when this show came out, I decided to give it a try.  And so did my boyfriend.  And it's now our must-focus-and-spend-one-hour-not-doing-other-things show.  He's not ashamed.

What always impresses me with these Shonda shows are the wardrobes.  I mean, Olivia Pope was one... but all of the leading players in HTGAWM (ew) have great styles.  They are definitely great for inspiration in your own work world (Annalise & Bonnie in the real job, Michaela & Laurel in the intern world).  I'm going to say "SPOILER ALERT" because if you haven't seen it, I'm afraid of giving away any spoilers... even though I don't think I am.  If you haven't seen it though, this is the time to do it, catch up, and then dream over these wardrobes (my personal fave - Michaela).

Annalise

Annalise is the star of the show and she means business.  Like woah.  She has taken the power-suit to the 21st century by wearing classic and standard business professional cuts but adding twists - like color, leather trim, and texture.  She would definitely own a pair of Jimmy Choo's - she doesn't have time to deal with shoes.  She needs ones that are going to look great with everything and stand the test of time (and the courtroom).

Michaela
| Sweater | Dress | Jeans | Watch | Bag | Picture

Michaela is the wealthy obsessive-compulsive Hermione Granger of the group.  She's very smart, but you're not sure if it's because she's naturally that way or she works crazy hard.  She always looks ready for the yacht or country club, the horse barn, or the Junior League.  She's probably personal friends with Tory Burch and grew up in Connecticut.  She understands that a preppy style translates really well from work to play.

Laurel
| Hat | Picture | Shoes | Top | Sweater | Skirt |

Laurel is the nice girl who is always looking out for the little guy.  Sometimes a little too much (over-compensating for her wealthy upbringing perhaps?).  She doesn't want to look too put together or clean because she wants to give the perception that she shops at thrift stores and is too busy working to care about clothes.  But she happens to always look pretty cute.  She definitely uses mismatching to her advantage.  (I'm not a big fan of her... maybe because I want Frank for myself?)

Bonnie

Bonnie is Annalise's wing-girl, cold and stoic, she doesn't seem to be excited about anything but she's a shark.  She is as clean as a whistle and ultra professional.  I wonder if she wears the pearls to keep her head on straight.

How to Get Away with Murder is on ABC at 10 on Thursdays.  And no this isn't a sponsored post - I love it that much!

    1. Bahaha, Deniz, oh I bet you do! One of my best friends just finished law school and is like... uhhhh where do I start? Even my boyfriend paused the show in the middle of the last episode and was like, "wait... they're all first years? Why would she have first year law students working for her?". I try and shrug it off. I need my smutty entertainment! Haha.
