Celebrating 25 Years Of Friends With The 25 Most Iconic Looks From The TV Series
From Holiday Armadillo outfits to lunging while wearing Chandler’s entire wardrobe, Friends has brought us many memorable looks - some more stylish than others. So to celebrate 25 whole years since the TV show first aired, we felt it absolutely necessary to countdown the 25 most iconic looks from the series.
Get ready to reminisce with us as we relive the outfits that we wish we could recreate today.
We guarantee you’ll be itching to have a Friends marathon after this, because we sure are.
We’re kicking off our list with Miss Rachel Green. From Bloomingdales to Ralph Lauren, Rachel conquered the fashion world with her always-chic looks. We love this strappy slip dress layered over a see through long-sleeve top.
Proving that you can be a domestic goddess AND a certified style icon, Monica’s short-sleeve chunky knit jumper and floral A-line skirt combo is a look we can deffo see ourselves trying out today.
In at number three is our girl Phoebe, serving up all sorts of dreamy boho vibes in this tan tassel jacket. With fringing along the sleeves and edges, this is the jacket that every fashionista wants to rock at Coachella.

Monica’s perfectly practical hair accessory has been seen on runways all across the globe this year, with 2019 being the year we decided to bring back our glitziest and most extra hair pins.
Blending school girl vibes with cool office wear, Rachel rocks a monochrome look in our number five spot. The grey shirt layered underneath the black jumper, the black mini skirt and knee-high boots - could we be anymore in love with this outfit?!
Speaking of office wear, Monica hits every fashion note with her little grey sleeveless dress and black tights pairing. Getting this look is all in the fit - mix a well-tailored silhouette with just the right mid-thigh length.
We love all the different eras of Phoebe, but Barbie Phoebe is definitely one of our faves. She shows off her super cute side with this tartan pink and white mini dress. Oh, and let's not forget that oh-so-adorable 60s hair flip.
Giving her best take on Clueless, Rachel’s neutral turtleneck jumper, checkered skirt and knee-high sport socks are deffo Cher Horowitz approved.
Every girl needs her go-to jeans, and Monica’s iconic mom-style jeans have proven to be a staple in our wardrobes ever since. The ultimate ‘90s style jean shape is a classic, much like the show she features in.
The queen of oh-so-flowy skirts and dresses, we just had to include one of Phoebe’s maxi dresses on our list. We love this full-length, V-neck style pinafore dress worn over a white turtleneck, and accessorised with layered statement necklaces.
The wedding guest dress of all our dreams, Rachel’s mint green, strappy column dress is the perfect balance of effortless style and basic-but-glam occasionwear. This is the outfit that makes us look forward to wedding season shopping.
Some might say that Friends was way ahead of its time, and we have the proof. See Phoebe’s super on-trend, crushed velvet mini dress that us gals of today would love to get our hands on.

Monica proves that double denim is far from a faux pas. With her signature Mom jeans, a tucked-in, light blue denim shirt and white trainers, she makes this casual ensemble look runway ready.
And Monica’s not the only one who can rock a denim shirt. Giving us her best pin-up girl impression, Phoebe rolls up her sleeves and ties her denim shirt over a white tee and floral skirt for some major country vibes.
Sometimes it’s the littlest details that make the biggest impact, like Monica’s white square-neck top. With cute three quarter length sleeves and bow detailing, this is the perfect choice for a ‘jeans and a nice top’ combo.
You can’t deny that midis are having a moment this year. Whether it’s midi slip dresses or flowy midi skirts, and Rachel’s been nailing the trend since ‘94 with this dark wash denim midi number.
While we love our oversized shirt dresses, Monica shows us how to wow in a fitted, little grey dress with short sleeves and button detailing. A sophisticated style that speaks, “when you have a meeting at 5, but are hitting up the club at 6”. Officewear, but make it fashion.
In The One With A Lesbian Wedding, Phoebe shows us how you can still look fab while having the spirit of an elderly woman possess you. She wears a simple black and white polka dot dress for the ceremony that you seriously can’t go wrong with.
No wardrobe is complete without a trusty skater dress, and we’re seriously crushing on Monica’s multicoloured, button-down floral number.
Rachel was the queen of power dressing, and we can see why. Pairing a striped off-the-shoulder blouse with black straight leg trousers, she finishes off her office look by accessorising with a necktie.

Never afraid of a little cropped action, Monica gets a yes from us with this cute black crop top teamed with a pair of high waisted drawstring trousers.

Rachel didn’t need vivid shades and bold prints to achieve her fashionista status. A simple black tied shirt and black skirt did the trick. A super minimalist look with high impact.
Phoebe’s orange faux fur coat is iconic for more than one reason. Her brightly-coloured piece of outerwear is bang on-trend and will forever be immortalised from that scene that inspired a hundred gifs. You know the one we’re talking about. Talk about statement pieces.
Yes, that’s another slip dress. And yes, we’re still obsessed. Rachel shows us the power of the slip dress with this grey printed design featuring black straps. This time she rocks it alone with nothing but her grace and her style...and a dozen designer shopping bags, of course.
Now, we know that Ross wasn’t quite the fashionista that Monica, Phoebe and Rachel were, but is there a more iconic outfit than Ross’ leather trousers? We couldn’t finish off our ode to the TV show without this infamous style. As well as providing us with some laughs, Ross’ leather pants have come back around in fashion as we’ve seen them all over catwalks today. Maybe just avoid them on first dates?!
