Girls Fashion Recap: Not So Basic Anymore

Last night's episode of Girls may have been called "Boys" but the girls gave us plenty to talk about outfit-wise. Especially Marnie, who wore a very confusing see-through dress made out of vinyl. It was the second time in one season that Marnie and Hannah had to ask each other what they were wearing. Save for Marnie, we feel like every character stayed very true to themselves this episode. Read on for our thoughts. Oh and spoilers, obvi.

Hannah's Clogs

We're starting to notice that Hannah's wardrobe--at least in her mind--is all about ease, hence the shorteralls (can anyone remember the last time she wore separates that weren't for sleeping?), so we guess it makes sense she would wear these ugly clogs.

Shoshanna's Lace Dress We love Shosh in this pink lace number. Pink is a really good color for her and she looks really natural in it, reminding us that despite having been deflowered, she still has that innocence that allows her to pull off a pink lace dress. She's also still on her wacky hairdo kick. Do you think she'll try every braid iteration in existence before the season is over?

Hannah's Functional Party Outfit

I actually thought Hannah's chambray dress and colorblocked rain coat were pretty cute. Very Steven Alan. But when she approaches Booth Jonathan's party full of cool kids, we get how cute then became comparatively average, and why Marnie felt all of her clothes were "so basic."

Marnie's Not Functional Party Outfit

After deciding everything she owns is too "basic" (which is a fair assessment), Marnie goes...somewhere...and buys this outfit. It appears to be a gold crocodile bustier and matching skirt underneath a completely transparent plastic/vinyl skater dress. It looked like a costume.

We guess it's another example of Marnie trying a little too hard and going a little too far. For a job interview it was a pink Ann Taylor-esque dress suit and for a party with "cool" art people it was this. Still, we feel like even Marnie wouldn't be so out of touch as to think this was cool. We like that it's not a complete transformation--the silhouette is still pretty simple and her hair is still straight and boring. When Marnie later takes it off and carries it to maneuver through the subway, it becomes clear that the outfit was also done for comedic purposes.

Adam and Ray

This episode was all about the boys, so let's talk about the boys.

Here's another gem from Ray's extensive vintage T-shirt collection. Also, "Go back to yogurt town!" may have been the best line from this episode.

As for Adam, well, at least he's wearing a shirt. Adam does not seem to own clothes that aren't made of sweatshirt material.

Jessa's Kimono

Jessa has a kimono for every occasion. This must be her depressed kimono.
