How to Style Rory Gilmore

I love the clothes Alexis wears in Gilmore Girls and I searched for many of her outfits in the series! There are many items open, no one knows which brands they are! Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks for everything!

Dear Christa,

Soooo happy to meet another Gilmore afficionado! I adore that series, own every DVD and wept profusely when they discontinued it. I would have been thrilled to follow Rory out into the working world and then back to graduate school for her MBA while Lorelie and Luke fixed up the house and then had twins...but I digress.Anyhoo, as for Rory's style, since the series has been off the air for over two years, most of the clothes she wore at that time won't be available now, if your are looking for specific items. However, in researching this I found that the stylist from the CW opted for the "collegiate" look for Rory, since she was attending Yale. And as every fashionista knows, it all starts with a great pair of designer jeans. Alexis favors Citizens of Humanity, James Jeans, and her alltime fave Adriano Goldschmied's AG Jeans.


Alexis tends to favor tanks and camisoles worn under blouses and sweaters. One of her favorites is the long tank from James Perse, which can be scrunched around the hips for a more styishly layered look.


She also wears blazers with a nipped in waist or peplum to accentuate her curves, and has a tendency toward flirty knee length styles with either a full skirt or an A-line style, staying away from pencil skirts. Some good sources for these type of outfits are Banana Republic, James Perse, Anthropologie, J.Crew and White House/Black Market.

Unfortunately, the blue dress from this episode, "But I'm a Gilmore!" is from Season 5, which first aired in April of 2005, making the dress most likely a 2004/2005 style. Your best bet at this point is to try eBay, Craig's List, or resale shops.

The blue dress that Rory wore to Logan's parent's dinner was laundry by shelli segal, but it will only be on eBay or in consignment by this time...:(

Hi, this may be bizarre, but I have been looking for the green tshirt with the fox on it that rory wore in the earlier seasons. Naomi Watts wore the same one in The Ring. I think it's so cute but I have had no luck. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Thanks:)

What designer is the blue prom-style dress Rory wore in the Life and Death Brigade episode "You jump, I jump, Jack." Or does anyone know where I can get it?

Hi everyone,
I totally agree - she should start her own line of clothing, Gilmore or not -- she always looks great!
She wears some beautiful dresses on the show, and some really cute outfits.
But in particular, I loved the long green dress she wore to Logan's sisters wedding. Has anyone got any information on that, or where to buy?
Thanks! xx

You mean the dress Rory wore in "Bridesmaids Revisited"? I believe it's a Carolina Herrera (a designer) because one of the bridesmaids says, "Oh! Is that a Carolina's?" And Rory says, "Um, no it's mine." LOL

Hi,

Does anyone know who makes Rory's graduation dress? It was a pink/blush color. Thanks! Also, was trying to track down the green floor length dress she wore in the episode of Honor's wedding, but can't find it anywhere!

I was trying to find who made Rory's graduation dress. I think it was like a pink/blush color, and fell just below the knees. Also, I've been trying to track down the floor length green dress Rory wore in the episode where Honor gets married. Thanks!

I actually have the dress from "But I'm a Gilmore" that she wore to dinner with Logan's family. It's hanging in my closet, new with the tags still on it. I found this post because I was looking for a picture from this episode to add to photos of my dress for an Ebay listing. The one I have is a size 8. I haven't posted it for sale yet, but if it's the size you need I can post a link or something here when I do.

It's the second time I've owed this dress. It's my favorite one I've ever had. I had it in a 2 and eventually sold it when I went up a size. I could only find it again in an 8, but the 8 never fit me and I never got around to getting it altered.

What size do you need?
