I have always been inspired by how characters on television shows always seem to have a “uniform” or basic pieces they tend to wear in each episode. One of my favorite series, The Big Bang Theory, is a great example of that. Here, I am making sets based on each of the four main characters. They are all men so I took some liberties to make them appropriate for women.
Raj is almost always seen in a button down with a sweater over it and a jacket thrown on top. The sweater I chose here already has a cute crocheted collar so the need for a button down is eliminated. I also chose a blazer instead of a track jacket for a bit more style. These earrings remind me of Indian style which is where Raj is from. Throw on your favorite cargos and colored flats and you can channel sweet Raj.
Leonard is all about layers as well. Here you see I have chosen brown pants, a military style jacket and a basic zip up hoodie which is to be left open. I chose a more feminine style blouse since the rest of the outfit was more boyish. He can usually be seen wearing basic black chucks, but I thought these purple ones were fun and added an unexpected color to the ensemble. Then this fun necklace is a play off of the glasses you always see Leonard wearing in the show.
I started this look off with a colored button down and matching jeans just as Howard does in this picture. Instead of the white turtle neck, I thought a white scarf would look a bit more stylish. White flats match the scarf and are a neutral since you are doing color all over otherwise. Add a cute watch and that’s Howard.
Sheldon’s look is one of my favorites. He almost always wears a graphic t-shirt. Instead of a t-shirt I chose this sheer blouse with a bird print to be worn over this striped long sleeve shirt. I love the color contrast of the brown pants and black shoes and the lightning ring is a nod at the Flash superhero tee Sheldon often wears.
Which look is your favorite? If you had a “uniform” what would it be?
