style study: The Good Wife

Though the TV series, The Good Wife, is now over, its impact on women's workwear will endure. The show's characters - Alicia, Diane, and Kalinda - exemplified how to dress professionally (in a traditionally conservative field, no less) through the lens of different yet all appropriate styles.

“The impact of [this] show is that they’ve taught women ... that clothes are a powerful part of their identity—not to be so shy about clothes, to put themselves out there further and try new things." - Betsy Fisher


Key vibes that costume designer Daniel Lawson homed in on were strong, feminine, elegant, and powerful. He also relied on how the women felt in the clothing as the characters, notably Kalinda's signature boots. He, along with the leading women, showed us that workwear can be all of those things simultaneously.
