And surprisingly successful print mixing by Hannah.

The fourth season of "Girls" is now well underway, with episode three giving us a better glimpse at what's going on with the characters other than Hannah. Jessa's going to a lot of AA meetings, Shoshanna's going on hilarious job interviews, Marnie is somehow getting meetings with record labels and Chester Chong has emerged as a character we want to see more of. Read on to see how these life events have influenced their wardrobes.

Jessa Opens the Episode in a Kimono and Uggs

Things seem to be going pretty well for Jessa at the beginning of episode three. She's doing some sort of exercise, going to AA meetings regularly, and looks great, and wearing what Elijah calls a "sad little kimono," which is very Jessa. Though, I did not take her for a possessor of Ugg boots -- those must have been borrowed from Shoshanna. But things go downhill for her pretty quickly. Also, Lena Dunham must have really had butts on the brain when writing this season.

Shoshanna Interviews at Ann Taylor Loft

Shoshanna interviewing for a job at Ann Taylor Loft that involves "allocating trend jewelry" and "helping us implement our cardigan story for spring" was easily the best scene of this episode. It also gave us the opportunity to see what Shosh looks like when she wants to put her best foot forward (even if it was just a "trial interview"), which involves a loud printed shirt, plenty of trend jewelry and another large hair clip, this one in the shape of a heart. I predict we're going to be seeing several more interview outfits from Shosh in future episodes, and that she's going to regret turning down that job, even if it didn't sound real.

Jessa Dresses Down

Jessa looks a bit more disheveled than we're used to seeing her, in an old Ice-T t-shirt, denim cutoffs and a topknot. Of course, because she's Jessa, she still looks really cool, like a long-lost, British Haim sister.

Marnie Overdresses

Once again, Marnie looks like she's trying a lot harder than everyone around her, pairing a bodycon mini dress with heeled ankle boots, a bright blue purse and an unnecessary scarf. The look reads more pop star than folk singer, and doesn't quite align with Desi's old Levi's denim shirt with a huge hole in the arm.

Hannah Does Some Impressive Print Mixing

Hannah's sartorial risk-taking isn't backfiring as much this season as it used to. Her cute pink "H" sweater vest actually works with the colors in the printed blouse she wears underneath it, and she smartly kept things simple from the waist down with a pair of blue jeans. Extra points for the striped bunny hair clip. Katie Hillier?

Chester Chong Is the Best

Chester Chong's outfit, including one of Beyoncé's "Surfboard" sweatshirts (available here), perfectly embodies Hannah's designation of him as "a tragically hip gaysian."
