Get The Look: Games Of Thrones Fashion
Elaborate clothing, luscious fabrications and heavy metal are not just left to the era of Games of Thrones, with designers and brands a like adopting a historical influence from a totally original world where the dramas of seven kingdoms are outweighed by the breathtaking fashion.
Fast forward to the “real world” designers like Prabal Gurung, Alexander Wang, Elie Saab and Oscar de la Renta have embraced regal times with a modern twist leaving us 21st century viewers thirsty for draped styles, layered leather, unique fabrics and stunning dresses.
Many collections like that of Helmut Lang’s A/W 2012 collection have been based on the popular series, drawing on layered leather, fur and wearable armour as key components.
GOT character Daenerys Targaryen is seen wearing draped chiffon evening gowns for everyday battle not dissimilar to ones seen in Elie Saab’s latest Fall 2014 collection, as is Margaery Tyrell seen in a gorgeous embroidered gown resembling one seen in Valentino’s Hautre Couture Spring ’13 range as well as those from Elie Saab’s Spring ’14 couture.
These modern interpretations make it super easy for you to dress like your favourite GOT stars by embracing our simple rules for rocking medieval style in a totally modern way.
Embrace neutrals: Think browns, beiges and off whites. Try roll neck sweaters, statement lapels on jackets teamed with leggings. Try a maxi dress teamed with feather or leather accessories.
Think leather: Instantly toughen up a look with leather. Think jackets, pants or panelling. For a real pseudo-medieval look try textured variations like quilting or animal surfaces.
Add some glamour with regal brocade: Try luscious gold brocade prints with high necklines and layered with statement headwear and a matching poncho or jacket.
Experiment with fabrics: Weaved textures, chiffon and embroidery, nothing adds a bit of old school glamour like unique fabrications.
Wear red: Think deep oxblood or blood red. Wear a knit, shift dress or maxi, this colour teamed with gorgeous jewels screams royalty at its best.
