Hello My Lovelies!
Today’s post is dedicated to one of the most awesomest character ever created in television history ~ Rachel Green, played by Jennifer Aniston!
I have always had a soft spot for Friends! I got hooked to the show so fast!
Friends is the best sitcom of all time! It ran from 1994-2004 and had 10 seasons! Friends tells the story of six twenty somethings (later thirty somethings) living in New York City encountering work problems, relationship/love problems and various other dramas (which results in pretty hilarious situations.. cue.. JOEY DOESN’T SHARE FOOD!).
The six friends together form each other’s support systems and become a surrogate family of sorts!
When I watch this show.. for a couple of minutes it feels like, I am also a member of their surrogate family! I could relate to Monica’s neurotic almost OCD need to clean; I hum Phoebe’s ‘smelly cat’ song when no one was looking; I sometimes imagine what I would do if a guy came up to me and said, “How yooou doooin’?” like Joey; I picture Ross vehemently saying, “We were on a BREAK!” to anyone who would listen; and as I write this I can just imagine Chandler stating, “Jeez! could this chick BE anymore into us?!” Ha!
I love the whole gang! Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Joey and Phoebe!
But out of the whole gang, Rachel (played by Jennifer Aniston) was always my favorite!

Who is Rachel Green?
Rachel Green is a member of the group of 6 friends featured on Friends. Rachel Green played by Jennifer Aniston starts out the series as Daddy’s Little Girl/Spoilt Princess but gradually throughout the series develops into a strong, independent, successful woman.
Rachel is introduced to the group in the pilot episode when on realizing that she is not in love with her fiance, she runs out of the wedding! She gradually tries to adjust to her new life as an independent woman, working as waitress and having to support herself without daddy’s money! During the initial 2 seasons Rachel works as a waitress and then in season 3 she quits her job as a waitress and due to her love for shopping and clothes, finds a niche for herself working first with Bloomingdale and then with Ralph Lauren during the later 5 seasons!
The highlight of the show has always been the on again-off again romance between Rachel and Ross throughout the series. The couple even had a daughter together in the show!
Although I loved Rachel’s style throughout the series, but, it was only since season 7 that Rachel (played by Jennifer Aniston) began killing it in terms of her outfit choices! So, I would be focusing more on Rachel’s style in the later seasons in this post.
Outfit 1 ~ Rachel’s Everyday/Mom look!
(From left to right : denims, full sleeve tee, white tee)
Rachel became a mom to a baby girl on the show. When, Rachel wasn’t working or going out, her style was very laid back and relaxed! She was a fan of layering T-shirts one over the other.
So, for this look, wear a pair of blue jeans with a light gray full sleeve T-shirt, and you could layer a short or raglan sleeve T-shirt over it.
For this look, I found this cute “Bonjour Paris” T-shirt, and yeah, it is my lame attempt to cheekily acknowledge the time when Rachel was moving to Paris! “Au Revoir!”
In the above picture: 1. The gang meeting Monica and Chandler’s twins for the first time! 2. Ross and Rachel breaking up! 3. Rachel’s iconic hair cut ‘The Rachel’.
Outfit 2 ~ Rachel’s Business Casual Look!
(From left to right: Sweater, Shirt, Pants)
Rachel has an impeccable dressing sense. And on account of her working in fashion, she dresses better than the rest of the cast! In the later seasons Rachel was seen rocking awesome business casual outfits!
To recreate that look~ Pair black jeans, with a crisp white mandarin collar button down shirt and to complete the look throw on a black sweater over the button down and make sure that the white collar of the shirt are peeking through the top of the black sweater!
In the above photo: 1. Rachel rocking the plaid skirt a la Britney! 2. When Phoebe (they all) turned thirty! 3. Monica dating Richard’s son, how rad is the eye patch!
Outfit 3 ~ Rachel’s Dress-y/Party Look!
(From left to right: dress, clutch, shoes)
Rachel opts for more structured silhouettes when she is going for a dress-y event. Be it the charity auction at her work, or Joey’s award show!
For this look pair a red/burgundy/maroon sleeve-less dress with a sweetheart neckline with nude pumps and a leopard print clutch to tie the whole look together!
In the above photo: Two of my most favorite looks of Rachel from Season 10.
1. This simple blue jeans, white shirt, black sweater look from ~ The One With The Late Thanksgiving!
2. The pleated gray skirt, black knee length boots, plus black turtleneck! ~ The One With Princess Consuela!
Outfit 4 ~ Rachel’s I’m-Moving-to-Paris Look!
(From left to right: skirt, cami, stockings, boots)
Rachel was wearing one of the best outfit that she ever wore on the show i.e. the gray pleated skirt-black top-black knee length boots look she wore when she was telling the gang that she has been offered a new job… in Paris.
To recreate this look with a modern twist~ pair a pleated gray skirt with a loose black lace cami, slip on the black semi sheer stockings and the black knee length boots to complete the look!
Friends was a great show! And even after a decade of it being off air, it’s still one of the greatest television shows ever created. Friends is the yardstick with which all the current or future sitcoms should be measured against.
Well, enough said!
As always send me some love!
