As much as we love to take trend advice from Anna Wintour, invest in new It bags worn by Meghan Markle, and cop $30 T-shirts from Zendaya, we hold a special place in our hearts for the best-dressed fictional characters of the '90s and early '00s. Can you blame us? In my mind, a trio of shows stands out among the rest: Friends, Gilmore Girls, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Even though these shows have been off the air for years, the outfits are as chic as ever. Fresh Prince's Hilary Banks, played by Karyn Parsons, was a master of impeccable blazers, cute dresses, and badass boots, and her looks are begging to be re-created in 2019 and beyond. Similarly, Rory Gilmore's perfect sweaters aren't just for Stars Hollow denizens, and you might want to scoop up the styles I found for you below. Last but not least, Jennifer Aniston's perennially popular Rachel Green character is also giving me lots of fall outfit ideas, so hurry up and scroll down to shop the looks.
Hilary Banks always looked amazing in skirt suits of all kinds, and she clearly knew her way around the accessory department as well. I'm dying to re-create this pitch-perfect plaid look ASAP.

Rory Gilmore's laid-back student vibe is ripe for copying this fall. Think cozy sweaters, slouchy pants, and minimal makeup. I also don't blame you if you want to reach for some blazers and plaid skirts à la Chilton uniforms.

H&M Ankle-Length Cargo Pants ($30)
It was tough to narrow down Rachel Green's amazing outfits, but this little number won me over. A black turtleneck and white knit skirt are classic, while a faux-fur coat in a bright color adds some personality.

H&M Rib-Knit Turtleneck Sweater ($25)
Madewell x Christy Dawn Ida Maxi Skirt ($168)
No, I don't remember why she's holding a stethoscope here, but that's not the point. A leopard coat contrasted with a red turtleneck is a stellar combination if I've ever seen one.
H&M Faux Fur Jacket ($50)
Leith Dolman Sleeve Sweater ($59)
Agolde Pinch Waist High Rise Kick Jeans ($178)
We could always count on Hilary Banks to serve great miniskirt looks, and this particular one can work for fall because of the exceptional boots. Just add tights if you need extra warmth.

For those of you on #TeamDean, this tender, sweater-filled moment will pull at your heartstrings. In any case, her striped sweater is definitely worth buying right now—you'll just have to find your own version of a turtleneck-clad Dean to pose with.

As Rachel Green proves, you can mix different shades of green to great effect. A sleeveless sweater is great for layering, while a plaid skirt is utterly timeless.
