Celebrate the 'GIRLS' Season 3 Premiere With an Ode to Hannah, Jessa, Shoshanna, and Marnie's Style
Tomorrow! Tomorrow is the Girls Season 3 premiere, and, as expected, you've called in dead to anything and everything else circa 10 PM Sunday night, when new episodes of Girls start on HBO. That time's reserved for you and Hannah, Jessa, Shoshanna, and Marnie.
Girls offers four very different perspectives of women in their early 20s, all living in NYC — and with that, four very different senses of style and fashion personalities. Whether you love Hannah's vintage-inspired dresses, Jessa's bohemian flair, Shoshanna's crazy hair accessories, or Marnie's classic style, each girl's wardrobe offers something to be appreciated. Check out a breakdown of each girls' style and maybe snag some Girls-inspired items along the way.
If you’re a true Girls fan, you know that Hannah is just as easy to hate as she is to love. A little whiny and a lot needy, Hannah is often hard to like. But behind all of Hannah’s complaining is an honest, bold personality that is incredibly relatable for a lot of 20-something girls.
Despite her flaws, Hannah, a writer, is extremely creative and innately lovable — aspects of her personality that are reflected in her sense of style. Hannah tends to wear soft silhouettes and colors; florals and quintessentially cute prints usually make their way into her wardrobe. Hannah’s sense of style may seem a little quirky at first, but in a lot of ways it is just like her personality: a little bit disorganized, but ultimately very sweet.
Quirky, Printed Dress
Hannah is always wearing a fun print, and she loves a vintage-inspired silhouette.

Jessa is just plain cool. Foreign and the messy hair, no makeup, “oh, I just casually threw on this pair of sheer harem pants” type of fashionable that we all hope to be, Jessa makes us all want to be a little bit bolder. Plus, she doesn’t even have a Facebook. I mean, c’mon — we’re all going for that level of cool, right?
Jessa is a free spirit, and her style reflects this part of her personality in a very loud way. Always making interesting and sometimes questionable (remember when she wore a see-through dress to go babysit?) outfit choices, we all want a different piece out of Jessa’s closet. Complete with kimonos, feathers, jumpsuits, and hats, Jessa’s wardrobe is all her own, yet has something for everyone to love.
Let’s be honest, nothing says ‘Jessa’ quite like a floral kimono.

Hats can be a tricky accessory to pull off, but Jessa definitely knows how to style a fedora correctly. A wide brim fedora is the perfect, bold Jessa-inspired accessory for any wardrobe.

Shoshanna is the type of weird that we all hope to be. Quirky Shoshanna is lovable even though she often says things that make us all go, “wait, what?” during every episode. Even when she accidentally smokes crack and runs half-naked through Bushwick, Shoshanna still manages to be adorable. Now that’s talent.
Even though we’re never really sure what was going on with Shoshanna’s hairstyles, her wardrobe reflects her endearing and undeniably cute personality. Full of pastels and feminine silhouettes, Shoshanna’s wardrobe is always ‘pretty,’ while still remaining just a little bit quirky.
Pastel pink, sequins, feminine to the extreme — that’s Shoshanna’s style in a nutshell.
Dazzling Sequined Dress, $24.80, forrever21.com
As girly as Shoshanna’s style is, she still loves a classic piece in her wardrobe. A tie-front blouse is the perfect staple for any closet.

No Shoshanna-inspired outfit would be complete without a bold hair accessory.

Cat Eye Sunglasses

Marnie is more than a little uptight and in a lot of ways, and her wardrobe sometimes reflects that part of her personality. However, while some may see what Marnie wears as cold or boring, it’s really just a perfect example of classic style.
Marnie stays away from big trends and sticks with classic silhouettes and prints. Whatever she is wearing is sure to still be acceptably stylish in 50 years. Marnie’s style is practical, classic, and pulled together, reflecting the image of herself that she is always trying to project.
Marnie always looks chic in dresses, but she doesn’t need a bold pattern or material to make the outfit. It’s all about the silhouette.
Quezada Halter Dress, $150, anthropologie.com
A trench coat is practical, classic and stylish.
Double Breasted Trench Coat, Calvin Klein, $150, stop.nordstrom.com
Marnie’s wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a classic, chic work dress — and neither would yours.

Marnie and every other girl with classic style needs a classic, sturdy handbag, of course.
