Character Style Inspiration: Zoe Hart Part 5


Look one is actually one of the most appropriate workwear outfits we've seen on Zoe so far (no shorts!) and I really like it. The trousers in particular are a really flattering style and I was spoilt for choice when looking for a pair to recreate this look. The blouse Rachel wore was by Elizabeth & James and had long sleeves but this Topshop sleeveless version would be a great alternative for the Summer months. The tweed blazer Rachel wore is by IRO and is available at Free People. I decided not to look for a dupe of the Alexander Wang bag, I'm sure there are lots out there to be found though!


Rachel actually wore this second outfit with a Diane von Furstenberg jacket, not only was I not keen on the jacket but it wasn't exactly going to be easily to find a dupe for either! Because I opted to use this photograph which doesn't feature the jacket you also aren't able to see the shoes. Anyway, I still wanted to include them because I think they added a little bit of colour to the outfit and an additional texture next to the already contrasting blouse and leather skirt. This floaty top is really versatile and would look lovely with all sorts of outfits. To finish I wanted to add an accessory as you can see Rachel is wearing a watch in the photo, although the style and brand isn't clear, so I opted for this beautiful rose gold bangle watch from DKNY.


This super-casual outfit which still manages to look chic is easily replicated. The look centres around a pair of coloured skinny jeans and a striped t-shirt which are already both wardrobe staples for a lot of people. The striped scarf (this is the actual one Rachel wore!) against the striped top contrasts well and the unusual mix of colours works well too. Look three proves that even the most casual Zoe Hart outfit isn't complete without a pair of heels! I really liked the strap detailing on Rachel's wedged boots so I concentrated on that when looking for the shoes to finish this look and these USC boots seemed the perfect everyday heel.


When I saw this dress I fell in love with the colours, print, cut and zip detailing so I did a little research and found out that just like the red jacket its by IRO. Considering some of the top designer pieces Rachel has worn on the show it's actually quite reasonable at £186! The actual necklace worn was the Fin Necklace by Lulu Frost but this leafy design from Republic is a great high street budget alternative. Personally I would probably opt for a spiked collar necklace to add a slightly edgier feel. Look four is finished off with a large brown leather tote and I think this one from Nardelli is beautiful!

Which look is your favourite?

I'll be taking a break from the Zoe Hart style series while Hart of Dixie is on Summer hiatus. Luckily it was announced last week that the show will be returning for a full second series (yay!) so there will be lots more Zoe outfits to recreate and inspire come Autumn!
