From Kelly Kapoor to Mindy Lahiri to her role as a scheming jeweler in Ocean’s 8, Mindy Kaling’s on-screen characters are never lacking in style. We can’t help but think that’s in part because the actress herself is so friggin’ stylish. Here are nine signature Kaling outfits we plan to copy ASAP.
9 Mindy Kaling Outfits That Are So Easy to Copy
Bright Sweater + Jeans + Matching Flats
Just because you prefer a casual weekend look, it doesn’t mean you need to reach for sweats and sneaks. Take a note from Kaling and choose a sweater and backless mules in vibrant hues like cherry red. Just as comfortable as leggings but infinitely more chic.
Solid Dress + Contrasting Belt
Get your colorblock on by pairing a bright dress with a wide belt in a contrasting shade and voilà! Simple, chic and flattering, all at once.
Get the look: Donna Morgan dress ($40); Anderson's belt ($155)
Matching Set + Basic Accessories
Sweater Set + Slim-fit Trousers + Vibrant Shoes
Sweater sets might make you think of Jackie O., but we’re obsessed with Kaling’s modern take on the retro trend. Get the look with a large print, then match your shoes or accessories to one of the colors featured.
Tunic Dress + Skinny Pants + Strappy Sandals
Floral Shirtdress + Embellished Bag + White Shoes
Printed Set + Bold Jacket
Worried head-to-toe flowers will make you look like you’re in grade school? Just make sure the outfit is well tailored and pair with one adult, un-printed piece (like this red jacket). Now you look ready to take on the world like the badass woman you are.
Get the look: Kristin Blake jacket ($198); Diane von Furstenberg top ($149) and pants ($221)
