Dear Costume Department: ‘Girls’


Editor’s note: Welcome to Dear Costume Department, a bi-weekly feature brought to you by our fashion-minded friends from Of a Kind, a curated shopping site of limited-edition goods by emerging designers. With each installment, they’ll bring you a head-to-toe look inspired by a buzzed-about pop culture personality — complete with info on where to grab the pieces for your own closet. Enjoy!

April doesn’t typically deliver highly-anticipated new TV shows, but no one can shut up about Lena Dunham’s HBO series — and the premiere is still two weeks out! Frank Bruni is all abuzz on the sexual dynamics, Emily Nussbaum is obsessed with, well, everything, and even Flavorwire got in on the action at the show’s SXSW panel with executive producer Judd Apatow. Today we’re here to address what our soon-to-be girl Hannah should be wearing if she wants to look like an authentic post-B.A. Brooklynite. Click through to see what we’ve come up with, and let us know if you’ll be tuning in to the series premiere in the comments!

With its Liberty floral print, this Sessun button-down has a masculine-feminine — and slightly confused — vibe fitting of the voice of her generation (or at least a voice of a generation).

This wool skirt from Lover screams intern-who-deserves-a-full-time-job.

Osborn oxfords: Ideal for the hike to the G train.

Graduating to adulthood does not mean retiring the backpack, and Dusen Dusen’s are the ultimate.

Hansel from Basel makes the sort of adorably juvenile socks that make you feel like you’re never too old to throw a temper tantrum a dinner with your parents.

The giver cuff by All for the Mountain is a not-so-subtle indicator that Hannah’s totally fine accepting handouts.
