17 TV Characters Who Have Impeccable Style

at .  Updated at .

Fashion on TV has an undeniable affect on fashion trends off-screen. Some of the most stylish TV characters (both men and women) have inspired the clothing, accessories, makeup, and hair styles we see in the real world.

They also give us, as viewers, the confidence to try new styles for ourselves.

From Olivia Pope and Jessica Day, to Lucious Lyon and Sherlock Holmes, here are 17 TV characters with impeccable personal style. 

1. Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope
Scandal's Olivia Pope is how every fierce woman wishes they could dress on a daily basis. From power suits and peacoats, to those super fashionable capes, Olivia Pope is a TV style icon. Don't believe me? The character has inspired her own line of clothes at The Limited. Her style is classic, yet sexy, and her hair is always on point. Girl, work!

2. Lydia Martin

Lydia Martin
I could talk about her fierce braided updos all day, but let's focus on her wardrobe. Lydia Martin of MTV's Teen Wolf is one of my all-time favorite female characters, and her confidence and personal style are part of the reason. Her look is preppy, fresh, and suprisingly age-appropriate (something pretty rare on TV these days). The character is a great model for teenage girls looking to dress just like her.

3. Lucious Lyon

Lucious Lyon
If there's one word to describe Lucious Lyon of Empire's style, it's 'sharp.' Those suits and statement blazers just exude power and confidence. Lucious constantly looks like he's ready to shoot the cover of GQ.

4. Felicity Smoak

Felicity Smoak
Smart is sexy, especially when you're Arrow's Felicity Smoak. The heels, the colorful body con dresses, and the black-framed glasses are what make up her signature style. Felicity always comes off professional and classy no matter what she's rocking.

5. Damon Salvatore

Damon Salvatore
There's something hot about a guy who knows what he looks good in and sticks with it. For The Vampire Dairies' Damon Salvatore, that's a neutral cotton v-neck t-shirt, a black leather jacket, dark-wash fitted jeans, and a glass of bourbon in hand. Hey, it's been working for him for over a century!

6. Aria Montgomery

Aria Montgomery
All of the leading ladies on Pretty Little Liars have an amazing sense of style, but there's something special about Aria Montgomery's. It's quirky, funky, and a little bolder than the other girls. She's also not afraid to rock statement jewelry and bold prints. We can all appreciate a fashion risk-taker and trend-setter.

7. Chanel Oberlin

Chanel Oberlin
Chanel's style is as over-the-top as Scream Queens itself. It involves a lot of pink and a lot of fur, but there's no denying that it's kind of amazing to look at. You may not be able to pull her looks off yourself, but you can certainly appreciate the fabulousness of them.

8. Elijah Mikaelson

Elijah Mikaelson
No one can rock a suit better than original vampire Elijah Mikaelson of The Originals. Plus, he rips out hearts and beheads adversaries all while donning a perfectly pressed Tom Ford. You'll never catch him wearing anything less than the best.

9. Jessica Day

Jessica Day
What's so amazing about Jessica Day's style is that it's easily replicable in the real world. It's adorable, it's unique, but not off-the-wall, and it's not the typical all black and brown wardrobe we commonly see on TV. Plus, it suits Jess' personality perfectly, and that's what personal style is all about.

10. Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen
Dany is the fiercest woman on TV right now, so of course she needs the most killer wardrobe to complement that. The costume designers for Game of Thrones are incredible, and their pieces for Dany are so distinctly her. Her style has inspired people to cosplay her famous dresses and hair styles all over the world.

11. John Luther

John Luther
John Luther of BBC's hit show Luther is one dapper man. His signature tweed jacket and red tie give him a relaxed, yet pulled together, look. Another TV character with a signature look, Luther's style makes him look effortlessly cool.

12. Schmidt

Schmidt would be totally offended if he was included on this list. Not a lot of men could pull off all of the sweaters and collared shirts that Schmidt wears, but Schmidt is his own man and he takes great pride in his style. His impreccable style just makes us love New Girl's funny man even more.

13. Mindy Lahiri

Mindy Lahiri
The Mindy Project's title character is too stinking cute for words. Her style is fun, bright, and bold. From houndstooth to stunning florals, prints are Mindy's jam. Who wouldn't kill for Mindy's wardrobe?

14. Claire Underwood

Claire Underwood
Can I just live inside of Claire's closet? As the President's wife, Claire has to dress to impress, but she goes above and beyond. Her style drips with class and sophistication. I'm patiently waiting for a Claire Underwood inspired clothing line.

15. Sherlock

There's something so dashing about Sherlock. No, not just because he's highly intelligent and played by Benedict Cumberbatch. It's his signature style — all the scarfs and the luxurious wool coats. He always looks sharp and so incredibly English.

16. Jessa Johansson

Jessa Johansson
Jessa Johansson of Girls is a fashion icon! She's free-spirited, and that is reflected in her funky jewelry, minimalist makeup, and boho-chic clothing. She knows how to perfectly blend styles from the 70s with current fashion trends.

17. Rafael Solano

Rafael Solano
Rafael of Jane the Virgin does not shy away from pastels, bold suits, or ultra-fitted pants. The man knows how to dress dinstinctly! His whole wardrobe just screams 'I'm rich!' Even his t-shirts look like they're worth more than my home.
