Here's Why Glow Has The Raddest Fashion On TV Right Now

glow

There’s plenty of fierce fashion on the set of Glow.

The new Netflix original Glow that is running now reboots a pop culture fix that was big back in the ’80s: professional women’s wrestling. To the uninitiated, the title stands for “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling” — a direct nod to the original women’s professional wrestling league of the same name that inspired the series. It follows a motley crew of aspiring actresses and entertainers plus a stunt performer who are transformed by a B-movie director into a cast of entertaining wrestlers-performers.

Stylewise, the fashion in this 10-parter reflects an eclectic off-duty mix of loud and tacky punk band tees, tourist merch tees, and leotards that are a more casual and real take on ’80s fashion. But on the ring is where the “showgirl” quality of the wardrobe truly shines.

This Gucci F/W ’17 looks like it could walk straight onto the ring in Glow.

Among them, the gothic-meets-frou frou ensemble (of a character called Sheila the She Wolf) that could come out of a Marc Jacobs editorial, and a star-spangled bodysuit for the character of Debbie which takes inspiration from the wardrobes of divas like Dolly Parton and Cher.

All these flamboyance calls to mind the Vegas-themed costumes of Moschino’s Resort ’18 collection and even a bodysuit-meets-crystal leggings combination at Gucci for F/W ’17. While the outfits in the show do cross into the costume territory, there are plenty of wearable iterations on the pret-a-porter collections this season which can make you add a little dose of drama into your everyday pieces too.
