FASHION: Style Icon - Annie from Community

If you've ever seen the show Community, you're probably familiar with the character of Annie Edison, and if you haven't seen it, well, YOU'RE 4 SEASONS BEHIND! Also, the fifth is coming soon so you might want to get on that. Annie is a typical overachiever and perfectionist, a little uptight and on a constant quest for straight A's, but she also has a slightly sordid past (Adderall addiction, rehab, the usual) and a kind-of-insane streak, which is a nice balance.

I could get into all the things I enjoy about this show and its characters (I've been known to chatter aimlessly on such topics), but what I really want to discuss is Annie's wardrobe. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy the floaty cardigans and leather jackets of the other female leads, but Annie's near uniform of floral dresses and bright cardigans just speaks to my fashion soul.
It does kind of seem like a uniform, right?
She never shies away from a bold print and loves feminine details and retro silhouettes. A lot of her dresses and blouses have a 40s feel and she sure does love a tie-neck top. I also don't think I've ever seen her wear pants, which I admire as a dress and skirt devotee.

This girl has seemingly replaced her pill addiction with a cardigan addiction, which I think is probably healthier and also warmer, so win-win.
Want to replicate Annie's cardigan game? These ones will have you two getting confused for each other at CA meetings. Yes, that is Cardigans Anonymous. I'll see myself out.
One  //  Two  //  Three  //  Four  //  Five  //  Six  //  Seven

Annie's no slouch in the dress department either, as witnessed in many scenes:
I think she would love these dresses, too - perhaps as much as she loves a perfectly pinned back hair-do:
One  //  Two  //  Three  //  Four  //  Five  //  Six  //  Seven

She's the kind of gal who not only still wears blouses, she calls them blouses, too.
Here are some cool blouses that would live up to Annie's rigorous standards:
One  //  Two  //  Three  //  Four  //  Five

And, just for funsies, here are a couple of her outfits recreated for your shopping pleasure:
One  //  Two  //  Three  //  Four
One  //  Two  //  Three  //  Four  //  Five

What is your fashion 'uniform'? Do you have a cardigan addiction like Annie and me? Are you watching Community yet or what?

  1. Ooh ooh, what about her wardrobe Mad Men? I like the cardigans but when I see her appear on Mad Men as Trudie, it kind of weirds me out.

    1. Yes, everyone's wardrobe on Mad Men is beyond fantastic. It does seem weird that she is on two popular TV shows at once! xo

    1. Agreed, it is super girly. Sometimes that's my thing (okay, usually) and sometimes it's not, but I love this character's commitment to a defined style! xo

  4. Love some of those choices! I love a good v-neck wrap dress, universally pretty on all girls but especially on hourglass like myself.

    1. V-neck wrap dresses should be available EVERYWHERE because they are the most universally adorable thing on the planet. xo
