6 Big Fashion Lessons We Learned From The Brave Guy


For the past four years (and counting!) We’ve been completely obsessed with the stylish millennial women of The fat guy. In case you’re unfamiliar, the comedy drama inspired by previous ones Cosmopolitan Magazine editor-in-chief Joanna Coles is as inspiring as she is realistic. Every week we tuned in like clockwork to watch Jane (Katie Stevens), Kat (Aisha Dee) and Sutton (Meghann Fahy) grapple with and work at the trials and tribulations of being in their twenties in New York City fictional scarlet Magazine.

Along the way, we watched the colleagues who became BFFs have personal, professional, and yes, clothing-related growing pains. Let’s take a look back, yeah? Jane is the neurotic Type A writer whose wit and romantic worldview are reflected in her choice of clothes. Kat, on the other hand, is the smart free spirit who works hard to get what she wants, even if she doesn’t know at the moment – and that goes for her outfits too. She will combine prints with her personality and whatever she wears will embody how she feels in that exact moment. For her part, Sutton is the independent and caring fashionista who updates her small-town roots with a modern twist. Despite the looks that distinguish them, these three women are indisputably linked by their impeccable taste in clothing. We love to see it.

Given the characters spend so much time in the closet, it should come as no surprise that they know a thing or two about style. With that in mind, here we have six fashion lessons that we learned from The fat guy.
