All the Pieces Rachel Green Would Wear in 2018

The most interesting thing to me about the outfits Jennifer Aniston wore on Friends is that they hit at a moment when 1990s style was transitioning into 2000s fashion. Taped over the years from 1994 to 2004, I watched as the style of her character, Rachel Green, changed and evolved. She was very invested in fashion—working as a buyer and personal shopper at Bloomingdale’s, and then as an executive at Ralph Lauren—so it’s no surprise that she was interested in wearing the trends of the moment.

Some of the early trends from the show were very ’90s. There were slip dresses layered over long-sleeve tees, lots of miniskirts, and square-neck tops. But then as it moved into the ’00s, she wore more pieces tied to that time, and items like baby tees and leopard-printed pieces were mainstays in her wardrobe. Ahead I’m highlighting some of the pieces that are trending again this year that she would definitely wear again in 2018.

Baby tees with shrunken proportions are making their way back onto the market in 2018. Rachel Green already proved her love for the tops, and we know she would wear them again now.

Dainty tennis necklaces were everywhere decades ago, and we’re starting to see them pop up again now.

Whether it’s leopard-print swimsuits or slip skirt styles, there’s no doubting the print has returned in a big way.

The combination of this slip dress with strappy sandals feels very 2018.

And now, the 2018 trends Princess Diana predicted decades ago.
