The minute I tuned in to Pretty Little Liars, I instantly feel in love with the girls’ wardrobe! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the ABC series Pretty Little Liars, it is about four young girls who are trying to crack to mystery of who killed their best friend. The girls are also being tormented by a mysterious person who goes by the identity of ‘A’. ‘A’ is unknown and the girls are still trying to track down who it is.
The four girls on the show are Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson), Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), and Spencer Hastings (Torian Bellisario). As we watch them go through high school on the show, we also get a chance to see their style evolve. When watching the show you notice the girls don’t dress like average high schoolers, considering many of their outfits wouldn’t be permitted in the school halls. Then again, it’s only TV, why not have fun with fashion! The thing that teens can relate to is they can purchase and create the same looks as the casts.

Pretty Little Liars Wardrobe Stylist, Mandi Line, makes sure of that by dressing the cast in stylish, affordable clothing. From Urban Outfitters to Forever 21, the girls of PLL are wearing modern day retailers. Watch as Line takes you on a tour through the PLL closet and gives you insight on looks.
Inside the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Closet
As you get a look behind the scenes in wardrobe, you learn a lot about the characters individual style. Aria is the edgy teen who takes risks in fashion. Mandi Line describes her to have “fashion schizophrenia,” because she adopts every kind of style into her wardrobe. Aria loves to play with looks, and accessories are her best friend. Emily’s wardrobe is sporty and laid back. Overtime throughout the show you watch her look evolve, as she becomes more comfortable in her skin. Spencer, who is absolutely adorable, is very high class and preppy. Line says that Spencer’s style is “preppy with a twist.” While it is easy to catch Spencer in a button up and pleaded or pencil skirt, you never know what pair of shoes or accessories she will pair them with next. The thing I favor about most of her looks is her knee-high socks that go perfectly well with her outfits. Last but not least, Hanna! Hanna is the glamorous fashionista that keeps up with the latest trends. As a girl who is destined to be in the fashion industry, she keeps up with all the fashion mags and blogs. While playing dress-up, Hanna never remains out-of-style.
I can definitely relate more to Aria’s style. Our love for studs, leather, and vintage is mutual. Aria can be punk rocker chick one day and be classy the next. Her fashion has no limits and she takes pieces from different styles and eras. Aria doesn’t hold back in her style and is comfortable as who she is.
If you haven’t seen the show, I suggest you check out. It’s a mixture of drama and comedy, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Look at an episode or two to get a peak of each of the girls’ styles. Catch Pretty Little Liars Tuesdays at 8/7c, only on ABC!
