Find your style with a little help from the sestra’s of Orphan Black

orphan-black-named-clones

Many style guides tell you to find your style role models in actresses and models or muses and to collect elements of their style on pinterest so you can apply it to your own. Definitions like bohemian chique or burlesque sexy or effortless cool get easily thrown around. I’m trying to look at style statements it a bit less seriously by defining style through the different sestras on the television show Orphan Black. I feel like I’m definitely more a bohemian Cosima mixed up with rockchick Sarah and seventies styled Katja Obinger, if that makes any sense.

Which sestra comes closest to your personal style?

We haven’t seen much of her, but she looked retro, seventies.

Athlete, high school darling

We haven’t seen much from the latest three characters as Katja gets shot, Tony is a transgender and Jennifer is a sestra who ┬áhad the same disease and symptoms as Cosima and died. I just wanted to mention these three to complete the list but we’ve seen too little of them to really pin down their style. I hope this character list is a fun way to look at your own style and helps you curate your personal style and closet.
