Rachel Green’s hair on Friends was the epitome of ‘90s style, with fans clambering for the short layered and angled look that framed Jennifer Aniston’s face just-so. But, with an on-screen career in fashion, it was Aniston’s character’s wardrobe that presented an army of trends that defined the decade. And Rachel Green’s ‘90s outfits are just as popular today.

Rachel’s wardrobe was made up of all the ‘90s essentials: there were the overalls, the short plaid kilts, the slip dresses, and choker necklaces alike. She embraced cool-girl style with a sophisticated edge, embracing grunge in a way that still felt feminine and even romantic. For dressier occasions, she was known to embrace the mini dress — a popular style of the era — in bright colors like red or classic tones like black.

There were dozens of tees layered under slip dresses, cardigans paired with plaid pants, mom jeans, and — of course — a plethora of chokers. Be it date night, heading to the office, or hanging out with her five other besties, Rachel Green’s outfits still remain among the best on television.

Though polarizing and often controversial, overalls were a mainstay of the ‘90s. With long or short silhouettes, this borrowed-from-the-boys look could be layered over baby tees for a more feminine appeal or underneath an equally grungy plaid button-down shirt.

Be it a stretchy piece of plastic or an 18K gold chain, chokers at all price points became more popular than ever throughout the ‘90s. Though all the girls of Friends wore the jewelry trend, Rachel rocked it nearly exclusively.

The denim silhouette of choice throughout the decade was certainly mom jeans, which Rachel wore from season to season. Be they styled with a cropped white T-shirt or oversized knit, they always looked impossibly chic on her.

Sure, Rachel might not have been the most sporty of the group, but she certainly dressed the part when necessary. During a Thanksgiving football game among the group, she proved it with a vintage boxing tee, black joggers, and a backwards baseball cap.
