5 ‘Friends’ Style Lessons That Are Still Important 25 Years Later

The 25th anniversary of the first episode of Friends is this Sunday! Bringing us tears, laughter and most importantly fashion – the ten-season series blessed our screens with some of the most iconic ’90s looks ever. And it’s no secret that over two decades later we’re still trying to recreate that all-American Rachel Green-esque look. From timeless slip dresses to the no-bra rule, here are five style lessons from Friends we’ll be keeping with us forever…

1. Minimalism is immortal

Keep your wardrobe fully stocked with mom jeans and crop tops ensures you’ll always be living out your ’90s dreams. P.S. A bra is optional.

2. Double denim is a good idea.

Double denim is a love or hate thing, but here’s Monica making a strong case for the Canadian Tuxedo. Totally ’90s.

3. Slip dresses. That’s it, that’s the lesson.

Pyjama style slip dresses have been the in thing since early Hollywood. We actually have loads in stock that look like they’ve just come straight from Monica Geller’s wardrobe. You’re welcome.

4. Your work uniform can be chic.


In this first few series of Friends, you know before she got that major job at Ralph Lauren, Rachel worked at Central Perk and thus waitress chic was born.

5. Find your own sense of style

Whilst often Rachel and Monica’s outfits were like seeing double, Phoebe Buffay’s individual style was almost as eccentric as her personality. We’re living for this oriental, purple polka dot combo.
