Friends remains one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time. It’s not hard to see why. The show has it all: lovable characters, easy-going humor, lighthearted melodrama, and a killer costume department. Naturally, the show’s resident fashionista Rachel Green is a fount of fashion inspo, even decades later. If you ask us, Rachel's outfits still haven’t lost their charm, especially now at the height of retro fashion. With 10 seasons and 236 episodes filled with enviable looks, it’s almost impossible to narrow down the best ones, but we’ve got you covered! Here are the 2 best outfits worn by Rachel in Friends that you can still rock today.
Season 1, Episode 19
When we say that Rachel is the height of preppy perfection—this outfit, a combination of knee-high socks with a plaid miniskirt and off-white turtleneck—is precisely what we’re thinking of!
Season 4, Episode 13
The sheerness of the dress together with the dainty floral embellishments and black tights create a modest yet flirty outfit.
Season 10, Episode 15
Rachel once again uses the turtleneck and mini skirt combo but to an entirely different effect this time around. The dark tones and the stilettos definitely give this outfit an edgy yet polished vibe.
Season 1, Episode 4
Rachel’s monochrome look comprising of a high waisted black skirt and a tied up black button-down screams effortlessly cool!
Season 9, Episode 20
Even though medium-wash blue jeans and fitted blouses are textbook pieces, there’s nothing wrong with going back to basics. In fact, this blouse-and-denim 'fit proves to be a classic combo until now!
Season 7, Episode 18
Unlike Rachel, we aren’t attending any soap opera award shows any time soon, however, this simple yet elegant formal look is one definitely worth recreating—even just for the 'gram!
Season 8, Episode 5
Rachel proves that all-black dressing need not be boring. All you need is a cute low-plunging top to perfectly frame your leyered gold necklaces.
Season 4, Episode 23
There’s something really special about slip dresses. Not only are they classily coquettish, they also highlight how lithe you are.
Season 6, Episode 15
While bold isn’t the word one would typically use to describe Rachel’s sartorial aesthetic, in this case the shoe (or rather coat) fits! Rachel looks absolutely stunning in her cow-print coat—an animal print that happens to be cool once again today, in case you didn't know.
Season 2, Episode 15
The white tee and denim jeans combination is so classic—some might even call it basic—but to this outfit's everlasting credit, no one can say it looks bad. A good white t-shirt and well-fitting jeans is the easiest outfit in the world to pull off. Just take a look at Rachel!
Season 7, Episode 4
Rachel's olive green turtleneck and plaid tube skirt combine into a pretty preppy yet office-appropriate moment.
Season 6, Episode 22
Rachel looks like the queen of casual in this laidback look! Keep the green cargo pants and unbuttoned hawaiian shirt, but exchange the white spaghetti strap for a white tube top and throw in some sneakers—that’s a look straight out of an influencer's Insta-feed for sure.
