With so many of our new favorite shows take place in Chicago, we can't help but check out if the stars of the shows stack up to our Windy City style. We connected with costume designers Daniel Lawson of the Good Wife, Lori Eskowitz-Carter from Whitney, Keri Smith from Happy Endings, and Lyn Paolo of Shameless to find out what their muses are wearing. Next, we matched them with where we think they’d be shopping if they lived in our ‘hood.

Comedian Whitney Cummings plays a struggling comedian (by the same name) living with her boyfriend in Chicago. Her wardrobe includes popular name brands like Helmut Lang, Stella McCartney, J Brand jeans, rag & bone, and Fiorentini + Baker. Costume designer Lori Eskowitz-Carter admits she takes some liberties with Whitney’s wardrobe budget for the sake of the show — which makes sense. But we have a hard time believing that any aspiring Second City player is shopping at Neiman Marcus, Roslyn, and Sofia, the chic retail outlets carrying her signature brands.
