Glee Character Inspiration: Rachel Berry

With a style self described as "sexy school girl librarian chic", Rachel Berry surely has a look that is all her own.  Always trying her hardest to be stylish and well liked, Rachel never fails to look sweet and adorable. While she may not be a trendsetter at McKinley some of her style choices might look ok on their own, but there is just something about her ensembles that are slightly off.  If you want to dress like Rachel you'll need to pair your cute dresses with thick tights, wear plaid and knee socks, and then of course there are all the childish prints featuring hearts or animals.  Here are some ideas for channeling your inner diva.

 Every sexy school girl needs an equally sexy pleated skirt. We've had our eyes on this pleated skirt from American Appeal for a few years now, and although it's a bit pricey, it's definitely worth the investment.

Pair your pleated skirt with an equally as sweet top like this one that features some of Rachel's favorites like lace, puffy sleeves, and adorable little bows!  

We love Rachel Berry, but at times she looks like a very cute pilgrim. Keeping with her modest look, this crochet collar dress from Top Shop is right up Rachel's alley. The high neck and loose fit keeps it modest, but it's a bit on the short side, to show off Rachel's stems. We can see Rachel rocking this with a pair of bright red knee socks as she sings "Memories" while staring at a picture of Finn.

It may come as a surprise to you all, but many of Rachel's dresses come from Forever 21! This pink dress prefect for Rachel and would be easily Rachel-ized with a pair of opague white tights, a modest cardigan, and some Mary Janes.

You obviously can't get that Rachel Berry look without being able to rock a childish animal print shirt.  This shirt, covered with tiny black poodles, would be great paired with one of her many skirts, black cardigan, and red tights!

Dainty and pretty with a childish flair, these fancy little flats are meant for the spotlight.  Slip on a pair of these and we're sure they'll keep you dancing all the way 'til regionals.

Show your star power by wearing a star necklace, just like the one Finn gave Rachel. It's just a little bling for the tiniest of divas.

Defy Gravity.
