Style Syllabus: Campus Style From Our Favorite TV Coeds

What college TV shows lack in believability, they more than make up for in healthy doses of fashion inspiration. So, get ready to take notes on these four well-loved shows we’ve studied. We spotlighted the leading ladies of Gossip Girl, Greek, and oldies but goodies Felicity and Gilmore Girls, so you can take fashion cues from your fave characters and make small-screen style into a major reality-wardrobe makeover.   
1 of 4
Gossip Girl—Probably the best-dressed students to ever walk the halls of college TV, Serena and Blair each possess a unique and crazy-covetable style. Serena is more off-beat with her fashion choices, always sporting trends and even starting them. But Blair gives Kate Middleton a run for her money, donning shiny pearls and Birkin bag derivatives.

Felicity—Remember nervous Felicity, who was always brooding over boys and running around NYC in slouchy hobo-chic wear before Mary-Kate and Ashley did the same with Starbucks, not Dean & Deluca coffee? Admire her style choices with '90s-inspired items like boyfriend jeans and sweaters paired with subtly sexy tanks for that careless college vibe that never gets old.

3 of 4
Gilmore Girls—Studious and responsible Rory is a fan of the basics when it comes to fashion. When she graduated from her high-school uniform, she could be found in preppy staples and in flattering New England-y colors.

4 of 4
Greek—This recently cancelled college show (tear) was all about the ins-and-outs of the Greek system. Casey was always girly and conservative with cute cardis and shrunken blazers. More adventurous Ash was heavily into mixing prints and patterns with bold panache.
