Dynasty is a 2017 American TV series that has been airing for the past year. The show is loosely based on the life of Jacqueline Kennedy and her family, but instead of taking place in 1960s America, it takes place in modern-day New York City. This article will discuss some fashion inspiration from Dynasty and how you can use those looks to your advantage!
Outfits inspired by Fallon Carrington, the lead character on Dynasty:
Fallon Carrington is a style icon in every sense of the word. Her outfits are always on-point, and she never leaves her home without looking absolutely perfect! She’s all about classic pieces that feel timeless; think elegant jumpsuits with simple cutouts at different levels (to make your legs look leaner), or chiffon maxi dresses as pictured below:
When it comes to dressing for work, Fallon knows how important being comfortable first can be – so instead of wearing tight pencil skirts or pants suits, she typically opts for loose blouses tucked into high-waisted trousers.
She paired black lace tights and trousers with a high-waisted black skirt, teaming it all together with a cropped burgundy blouse.
This outfit may not be appropriate for the office environment – but when she’s out on her own time (or heading to Pilates!), this is one of Fallon’s go-to outfits.
She typically mixes prints such as stripes and polka dots in order to create an interesting look without being too bold or complicated. For example, Fallon wore this bright yellow dress from Zara paired with white sneakers:
Fallon knows how important comfort can be during work hours so instead of wearing tight pencil skirts or pants suits which could get uncomfortable quickly, she opts for loose blouses tucked into high-waist pants.
This is one way to avoid the dreaded “uncomfortably hot and sticky” feeling in your suit! Fallon typically wears her hair down because it looks more feminine and professional but when she’s looking for a special occasion hairstyle, a ponytail works just as well.
Outfits inspired by Cristal Carrington:
Cristal Carrington’s “uniform” includes a white button-down shirt with long sleeves and blue jeans.
Now when Cristal is around the office, she wears this outfit, but for special occasions like her daughter’s wedding or an art show opening in New York City where she needs to be more formal than usual, the Carrington matriarch opts for a blouse tucked into black trousers paired with simple jewelry and flats instead of heels.
What are some fashion trends that Dynasty has shown so far?
Dynasty is all about women dressing to impress, and the best way for you to do this in your own life is by wearing a dress! The outfits featured on Dynasty feature dresses with bold prints or tight silhouettes. Lace details on blouses, floor-length gowns, skirts with slits up the side…all of these elements will make you feel like an international socialite living in New York City. Today’s modern woman can wear similar styles without feeling too out of place; as long as she follows those same guidelines: simple shapes (think empire waistlines), no more than two colors per outfit, and always keeping her shoe closed-toe heels!
What are some fashion tips that Dynasty can provide?
Dynasty is all about making a statement with your outfit, but if you’re not sure how to do this, then you should start by playing off of the color palette featured on the show. For example: wearing an orange dress will make for a perfect match with an emerald green clutch or lipstick! If you want to be bold and daring while still being trendy, then wear something in bright pink (think magenta) paired up with gold jewelry and black heels…you’ll look like one of those fashionable women from France who everyone admires.
One thing to keep in mind when it comes to fashion on Dynasty is that fit matters just as much as style does! Don’t wear something too tight, otherwise, you’ll restrict your breathing and make it difficult to move. The same goes with loose clothing; if there’s too much fabric then the outfit will seem sloppy and undone.
The last tip I have for improving any wardrobe-related dilemmas is this: don’t be afraid of color! You can never go wrong wearing a bright blue dress or pairing up purple eye shadow with peach.
