Leslie Knope's 'Parks and Rec' Style Evolution From Frumpy Mess to Bossy Bangs

All good things must come to an end, like a stack of delicious waffles from JJ's and our favorite small-town government show, Parks and Recreation. Season 7 of Parks and Rec will surely be a tough goodbye, but instead of focusing on the bad, let's focus on the good. Yes, this is the final season of the NBC loved show, but, if Leslie Knope's style evolution from Season 1 until the end of Season 6 is any indication, this is going to be her best dressed season yet — bangs and all.

When I think Leslie Knope, I think power suit, and not just one power suit, because Leslie Knope has a ton of power suits. Since Season 1, Leslie has dressed the part of a powerful government employee, because you know what they say — dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Much like the photos of Hilary Clinton, Condolezza Rice, and Janet Reno in her office, Leslie's style proves to be the clothing of a Secretary of State, or the Attorney General. Throughout the past six years though, Leslie's style has modernized much like her department, and has even adapted to new positions she has had within the Pawnee government, because obviously a City Councilwoman can't dress the same way as a Deputy Director of Pawnee's Parks and Recreation department.
