She’s an OBGYN on-screen, a best-selling author/social media master/comedic genius off-screen, and a trendsetter on all screens. She’s Mindy Kaling, and she’s every girl’s #FashionFriday inspiration.
Especially ours and especially this week. Miss Kaling not only debuted a brand new ‘do (that she’s still not sure how to do), but she also announced that she’ll be writing a book with her frequent co-star/ex-BF/current BFF B.J. Novak. Umm we’re dying over here.
Not to mention her critically acclaimed sitcom was just picked up by Hulu (see ya, network TV), her newest book “Why Not Me?” is hitting shelves in September, AND she’s this month’s InStyle cover girl. Resume envy is real.
Let’s just get to the list before she adds another bullet point.
Mindy (both of the Kaling and Lahiri variety) is a master at mixing prints, patterns, trends, and wardrobe staples. Whether she’s pairing cobalt accessories with an embellished coat, a printed skirt, and a statement earring or she’s rocking sneakers with a—literal—cheetah printed sweater, she knows that taking fashion risks is the only way to go.
With clothing gift cards to Cakewalk in Houston, you can steal her one-of-a-kind style faster than Mindy can steal your heart. We can totally see Kaling in this DVF romper, or mixing casual with classy in this Elizabeth and James A-line skirt and Mother Denim metallic crewneck.
Playing doctor on the small screen and being a total bo$$ behind the scenes calls for professional attire that can be dressed up or dressed down. Of course, Mindy ups the ante with her bronze blazer and stud-capped stilettos, but Two Penny Blue offers unique, quality blazers that can help you emulate her polished power.
We especially ❤ the Sophie Striped Jacket for a Mindy-esque look.
She’s super sneaky now. As in, she loves her fancy (and functional) footwear. Like these, or these, or pretty much any tennie that makes a statement. She tends to tie them up with a polished ensemble, complete with a collar, lace, and everyday black skinnies.
To get the look, spend your gift card at The Perfect Pair in Nashville, where slip-on sneakers are the perfect pairing for any outfit. You can dress them up like Kaling with a pretty dress and cardigan, or make them the statement piece paired with denim and an easy tee.
Mindy has tried everything from ombre to (fake) bangs to a (for-TV) pixie cut that had mixed reviews. But her latest style—a smooth and glossy bob—is by far one of our favorites. For the same look, Haute Air blow dry bar in Soho is a cut above the rest, offering cuts for around $80 and blow drys that will keep your new bob bouncing and (mis)behaving.
