Complex.com published aGuide To Jerry Seinfeild’s Sneakers – he modeled quite a few in this 9 seasons on the show. Reading through their post got me thinking: “where you ever inspired by a fashion trend you saw on a television show?”
I leaped on the Blair Waldorf headband trend in grade 10, and I’ve stolen a couple pages from Buffy Summer’s style book over the years.
What television shows have influenced your wardrobe?

That sneaker story totally reminds me of the NY Times story on Elaine Benes style. So funny! Who would've thought that Seinfeld would be influencing trends?!

Ya in most cases I would think that Seinfeld would be an example of the trends we don't to come back: Frizzy hair, floor length floral print dresses, tight acid wash jeans for men, Caribbean shirts…. There are so many!

@Lauren well you may think that George Costanza would be the last character to be inspiring trends, but check this comparison between his style and current looks for men!

I guess he is... At the same time those clothes look very different on his um... figure and the models.
|"style icons", for better or worse on Apr 12, 2011 @ 04:52 pm|
I've heard the Seinfeld "style icon" argument several times now. Elaine Benes was definitely sporting the maxi and oxford flats way before their time, and I have thought for some time that much of men's fashion has become rather stodgy so it's no surprise to see it compared to Costanza. Even Kramer and his bowling shirts made a constant appearance on 2 1/2 Men. With men's skinny jeans trying to make inroads, you might even say that's a Jerry statement.
Bottom line, we are (as fashion generally has been for the last couple of decades) in some form or another bringing back older looks - in this case, the *shudder* late '80s, early '90s.
