All of the Completely Iconic Outfits From ‘The O.C.’ You Forgot About
Please get able to scream-sing “California right here we come” at your pc, adopted by a fast spherical of “mmm whatcha say,” as a result of the time has come to revisit The O.C.’s most iconic outfits. And please be suggested that, on this case, “iconic” is loosely outlined as “deranged,” “unhinged,” and “questionable.” Like, each outfit Anna Stern placed on ought to be in a museum and studied by future generations, that is all I am saying. Actually, Anna Wintour ought to simply go forward and make The O.C. the theme of subsequent yr’s Met Gala.
Many of the outfits on this record clearly belong to Seth, Summer season, Marissa, and Anna, however don’t be concerned—Ryan’s tank high and choker necklace make an look. As do a number of matches from Olivia Wilde who, reminder, was positively on this present. As was Nikki Reed. And Chris Pratt?
Anyway! Please notice: whereas, sure, The O.C. is technically 4 seasons lengthy, I personally refuse to acknowledge the existence of Season 4 for apparent causes associated to the death of Marissa Cooper, and admittedly most of Season 3 can be useless to me. Which is why nearly all of these outfits come from the legitimately good present to humanity which can be the primary and second seasons, two flawless years of tv stuffed with layered shirts, newsboy caps, low-rise ruffle skirts, and thin scarves. On that notice, and within the smart phrases of Luke (who was sporting a shell necklace and open shirt on the time), “Welcome to The O.C., bitch!”
