What's old is new again. People can't seem to get enough of throwback TV shows, from Friends to Lizzie McGuire. If you ask me, however, one show truly stands out from the pack: The Nanny, which is hosting a virtual cast reunion today. Lately, I've been watching the OG show on Roku's website and couldn't help but notice that C.C. Babcock is a majorly underrated style star. Listen, I know Fran Fine was the "flashy girl from Flushing," but C.C. more than held her own in the style department—just in a totally different way.

While Fran paraded down the stairs in Gaultier minidresses and metallic crop tops, C.C. was always ready for a business meeting in polished pantsuits and sophisticated skirts. She was the Old Céline of the show, if you will. I'll always love Fran, but I simply can't deny C.C.'s power dressing. Scroll down to see five outfits that prove it.

C.C.'s closet was full of pantsuits, but they usually were far from boring thanks to details like puffed shoulders or statement collars.

Whereas Fran perfected the party dress, C.C. was the master of businesswear. This silky button-down shirt accessorized with pearl jewelry was no exception.

Hot outfit tip from C.C.: Grab your favorite maxi dress and throw on a blazer and belt. It's as comfortable as it is chic.

Leave it to C.C. to pull off a three-piece suit. If you don't have the occasion to wear a tuxedo vest these days, try a slouchy jacket over a crop top.
