Netflix’s “Orange is The New Black” is one of the best shows on television today. Only 2 seasons in, #OINB gives us a humorous and eye-opening look at life behind bars. It also delves into themes of feminism, racism and romance all while giving us a healthy dose of comedy and drama.
Our favorite part of the addictive series? The cast. The #OINB ladies run the gamut in terms of age, ethnicity and shape, and their style is as diverse as their backgrounds. From Taylor Schilling’s minimalist dresses to Laverne Cox’s bold and edgy accessories, we get so much inspiration from their fun-loving approach to fashion. Here are the 12 style tips we learned from the ladies of “Orange is The New Black.”
1. Uzo Aduba
For a subtle yet memorable pop of color, add a purple lip to an all-gold outfit like Uzo Aduba.
2. Taylor Schilling
A little white dress gives you the opportunity to go wild with colorful accessories. Taylor spices up her LWD with a red lip, printed clutch and pink pumps.
3. Laverne Cox
Ditch the simple black heels. Sometimes, a bold dress requires an equally bold shoe like with Laverne Cox's Herve Leger frock and Valentino rockstud pumps.
4. Danielle Brooks
This summer is all about accessories in contrasting colors. Danielle Brooks' bold orange shoes bring new life to her white and blue sundress.
5. Taryn Manning
A dress as eye-catching as Taryn Manning's can afford to stand alone. By pairing black peep toe sandals and slicking her hair back, Taryn lets her dress do all the talking.
6. Samira Wiley
This season is all about contrasting rather than matching. Samira Wiley nails the look with a yellow crop top and skirt offset by a pink clutch.
7. Laura Prepon
Laura Prepon knows the right gown is all about proportions: she balances the revealing low-cut and cut-out bodice with a flowy pleated skirt. Perfection.
8. Vicky Jeudy
Vicky Jeudy cleverly wore an orange jumpsuit as an ode to her prison-based show #OINB. But the smartest part about this look is the fit: the cinched waist and low-cut top make this jumpsuit anything but frumpy.
9. Yael Stone
Want to dress your curls up for a formal event? Take a cue from Yael Stone and sleek them to one side. Just remember to keep the neckline simple so it doesn't compete.
10. Selenis Leyva
Don't be afraid to go for the bold this summer with a vibrant color like Selenis Leyva's purple gown. Soft makeup and subtle accessories are your best options for rounding out this look.
11. Dascha Polanco
This Summer, commit to your look from head-to-toe like Dascha Polanco. She wholeheartedly embraces the boho theme with a sweeping maxi dress, soft waves and a crown braid. Flawless.
12. Natasha Lyonne
If color is not your thing, look no further than Natasha Lyonne's look for inspiration. She keeps an all black outfit from looking boring by throwing on the boldest shoes she can find. Well-played.
