Raise your hand if your mailbox is crammed with bloated magazines and catalogs brimming with fall fashion. Yay, it’s boots + cardigan season! That means it’s also the time of year when social calendars fill up with all sorts of schmancy events. Whether you’ve got a charity black tie to attend or you’re counting the days until The Big School Dance (you kids keep us young) get inspired by the fancy fashions of our fave TV ladies.

 

1. Major Cleave

Got an agenda? Take a page out of the Revenge (!!!) playbook and distract your mark with a plunging neckline.

 

 

 

2. Metallics

This metallic gold number is what Megan wore when she needed to remind Don just how smokin’ she is. Seriously, it only went down to her fallopian tubes. We might not have the legs to pull off that length, but it’s pretty much a given that everyone looks amaze in gold.

 

 

 

3. Mesh

I mean, we wouldn’t wear this to a funeral, but funerals are everyday occasions in Rosewood, so we get why Hanna thought this was ok. Back here in the real world, black mesh is way appropriate for a less somber event.

 

 

 

4. Bandage

Remember when Mindy wore this? Remember when she was the hottest thing in the club? That could be YOU, in the red bandage dress.

 

 

 

5. Swingy!

Weee! With a nipped waist and a full skirt, this look is young and fun, ideal for homecoming dresses and the like.
