Thought Stranger Things was the only show shap­ing your style? Think again. For­get Net­flix and chill – it’s all about Net­flix and (dress to) thrill

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

1 The Get Down

THE STARS: New­comer Jus­tice Smith and teen su­per­star Jaden Smith.

THE SPEC: Set in 70s New York, it’s the ‘mythic saga of how NY gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco – as told through the lives and mu­sic of the South Bronx teenagers who changed the city and the world… for­ever.’

THE LOOK: 70s swag­ger. Don’t think this is all about the boys; the fe­male char­ac­ters have some crack­ing cos­tumes – all high-waisted denim skirts, metal­lic disco dresses and, of course, flares.

2 Gil­more Girls: a year In the life

THE STARS: Rory and Lore­lai (AKA Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham). Ob­vi­ously. Oh, and Melissa Mccarthy.

THE SPEC: Re­leased on 25 Novem­ber (set your alarms), the four new 90minute episodes mark the most highly an­tic­i­pated come­back since, er, Brit­ney.

THE LOOK: Knitwear. Lots of knitwear. Some of it nov­elty. Also: wrap dresses, ironic slo­gan tees, ban­danas and flo­ral silk ki­monos (see: Emily Gil­more. Kween).

3 The Crown (Sea­son 1)

The STARS: Claire Foy and Matt Smith.

The Spec: The most ex­pen­sive Net­flix drama ever made (the bud­get was a cool £100m) and the first ever to be pro­duced in the UK, The Crown fol­lows the life of Queen El­iz­a­beth II from her wed­ding day in 1947 to the present day.

The Look: Off-duty re­gal. Think pleated skirts, prim blouses and pearl adorn­ments (ob­vi­ously). You could try the on-duty look, but it would re­quire a lot of taffeta…
