As a fan of Game of Thrones, I’ve been noticing a few fashion themes throughout the show that are nothing short of amazing. Outfits include fashionably armored ladies, elaborately braided warrior garb, flowy gowns with intricate embroidery, fur coated collars on magnificent cloaks, and striking jewelry befitting of the queen of dragons.
AND…I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be releasing a line of jewelry next month inspired by Game of Thrones! I’ve been amassing inspiration, and searching for the perfect jewelry components. Stay tuned for more information about that line coming out, and you can follow my instagram for behind-the-scenes info…
Armor as Fashion
One of the theme I see for the powerful ladies is the use of armor, neckplates, and metal worked into the overly feminine gowns. Some of the armor even has matching jewelry!
One of my favorites is how Cersei ‘goes to battle’ wearing her metal corset over her dress. She’s so prepared! ….To drink lots of wine, insult everyone, and get left out of the popular people club. Oh, Cersei. And…even in non-battle times, she’s got her armor-dress, with coordinating jewelry.
I’m probably not alone in favoriting Dany, both her character and her wardrobe. When she’s coming into her own, she starts working armor into her closet. Hers is a little more gilded here than Cersei’s, and love the golden filigree pattern over the brilliant blue dress.
Margaery also works in a bit of armor, although softer, over her neckline. Margaery probably is my second favorite in terms of her fashion-sense, and the girl is never shy about showing off the cleavage.
Elaborate Braids and Draping
The ladies really sport some complicated outfits. Dany’s braids — from her hair to her halter top, Margary’s draped gowns, and to Sansa’s simple silhouette with intricate embroidery, it’s nothing short of amazing.
I love watching Dany evolve. From her simple flowy sheer dresses, to her braided warrior outfits, she’s constantly changing with the times. Look how tough she is!
Dany and Margaery are never shy of wearing a draped, complicated dress either. Woven halter tops, intricate shoulder drapes, cut-out back designs work their way into each of their dresses.
Plain and Not-So-Simple
And finally, we come to Sansa. The poor girl is trapped in captivity, and even though her frocks look simple from afar, up close they have such detail worked into them. However, through no fault of Sansa’s, I’m a little bored with her tried-and-true dresses. Most have a princess seam bodice with a A-line full skirt…and gigantic wizard sleeves. Sometimes she gets a wrap-dress, if she’s behaved herself. I think I’m just still upset about how she shunned Tyrion on their wedding day.
