Roseanne as Fashion Icon: Third and Delaware


File this one under things you never knew you needed: fashion highlights from every single Roseanne episode. We had never pinned the Conners as fashion revolutionaries, but Third and Delaware has us feeling amiss for ever thinking Dan was anything less than “the best men’s style archetype for years to come.” Seriously. As ’90s working class fashion swings back into vogue, suddenly raiding the closets of Aunt Jackie or Darlene doesn’t seem like such a bad idea. Even Rosie has a few pieces we wouldn’t mind borrowing.

Jackie’s Saturday at the mall look. She has the suede jacket, the roll-neck tee, the over-the-shoulder bag, and the always classic black Wayfarers. Her choice of acid wash adds an element of “cool” to anotherwise casual outfit. American Apparel can help you with this.

When it comes to blouses in Lanford, plaid seems to take precedence, but that does little to stop the most fashion forward of the Conner children. Becky’s pink floral just screams with life. What we wouldn’t do for a closet of flowery blouses as deep as hers! Try as they might, this version from Urban Outfitters just doesn’t cut it. But it’s all we’ve got.

We’re actually wearing that parka, Aunt Jackie! And you can be, too; Opening Ceremony has got it.

The Conners > The Ramones? So much leather, so much cool. The kids are losing their minds? Hey ho, let’s go!

Third and Delaware has deemed this Becky’s “Good-bye Virginity” dress. Maybe TopShop should consider selling the look as a set.

Becky is so lucky. Look at Mark’s apathetically cool look: sleeves rolled, pants ripped, and hair that’s higher than Roseanne’s. Do you think he borrowed that flannel from Dan? We definitely passed a Mark or two outside of the Gap this morning.

Every family has got that one t-shirt that everyone loves. Apparently, this chicken shirt is just that for the Conners. Everyone on the show wore it at least once. We’ll let Roseanne explain why: “The chicken shirt, it was just the ugliest shirt I ever saw and we had this bet between us, the actors; if you show something really bad on TV it takes off. It was like another rebellious artistic statement, that it looks like art when it’s on TV.” Buy your own here.
