We’re talking about the show’s main character, Mel (short for Melinda), who’s portrayed by Alexandra Breckenridge. Her sense of style isn’t, let’s say, special, but there’s something oddly effortless about her flannel-clad closet. So, we compiled a list of Mel’s best Virgin River outfits, along with details on how to recreate the looks at home. Keep scrolling for details.

1. Flannel + Utility Jacket
Mel proves that you can’t go wrong with a classic flannel. Try pairing it with a heavy coat (like Mel) or opt for a cute skinny jean and Chelsea boot combo for an on-trend look.
2. Chambray Shirt + Black Pants
One thing’s for sure: Mel is a sucker for button-down shirts. In this case, she completes the look with a pair of simple black pants.
3. Puffer Coat + Beanie
Mel elevates this classic flannel shirt by pairing it with a coordinating puffer coat. Not only does it provide extra warmth, but it also complements the beanie.
4. Pajama Set
It’s rare to see Mel wearing anything but pants and a top. But in this scene, Mel offers a rare glimpse of her two-piece pajama set. Cute and comfy…need we say more?
5. Pullover + Skinny Jeans
Mel’s go-to outfit is a pullover and skinny jeans, as shown above. Although it’s a simple combination, she often makes subtle changes. (For example, the white undershirt and hair clip.)
6. Fitted Blazer + Blouse
During a visit with her sister, Mel steps out of her typical wardrobe and dons a business professional ensemble. This includes a fitted blazer, a white blouse and dress pants, which can be swapped for denim, depending on the occasion.
7. Sweater + Sherpa Coat
If you’re looking to elevate a simple sweater-and-pants ensemble, try taking a page from Mel’s book by adding a patterned coat.
9. Crewneck Pullover + Baseball Cap
During a nature walk, Mel opted for a casual pullover and baseball cap. Try pairing the top with jeans for a casual daytime look.
10. Denim Jacket + Bandana
Mel used this bandana in two ways. First, it held her hair back like a headband. Then, when the wildfire erupted in Virgin River, it moved to her neck.
