The series finale of AMC’s Breaking Bad airs Sunday night, and I’m approaching it with a mixture of anticipation, dread, and relief. For five seasons this show has been grossing us out, confronting us with concepts of good vs. evil, and teaching us a lot about meth (not to mention how to dissolve a dead person with acid). We also think the show has some legit fashion cred–and not just because Mickey Drexler made a cameo this season.
The aesthetics of the show add to the surreal and bleak feeling you get when you’re watching. Camera shots through the bottoms of glasses, eerie New Mexican landscapes, and realistic wounds all bring it to life. And so do the costumes. The way the characters dress certainly helps to flesh out their personalities, and the producers have been really attentive to detail in that regard: Everyone has a uniform.
Click through to see some of the many style statements from the last five seasons of Breaking Bad. We’ll miss you, Heisenberg–although I won’t miss the acute anxiety that lasts for two days after every episode.
(Warning: If you haven’t seen the show yet and are planning to binge-watch it after the finale, there are spoilers in here.)
