Right - and when have you ever seen a high school principal look and dress like the one on Breaking Bad? LOL

I remember on Gilmore Girls, Lorelai was supposed to be a struggling single mom and yet she'd be wearing $200 jeans with a $80 designer t-shirt.

Some of the USA shows over the summer have some interesting outfits. There are some appropriate pencil-skirt type officewear, but then sometimes the ladies show up in really low cut or tight stuff, and a lot of sleeveless, which some dress codes frown on.

One thing I like about Mad Men is that you often see the women re-wearing clothes. Maybe the skirt is with a different top, or maybe the dress is accessorized differently, but they do wear it more than once like normal people.

Good point!

And notice Joan has a necklace that she wears almost all of the time. It makes her character seem more normal, as many of us have jewelry we were a lot.

The clothing choices are VERY VERY well thought out and VERY purposeful.

This blog has an incredible breakdown of exactly why certain colors/styles are used. After I started reading it it gave me a whole new outlook on the show.

LOL Cuddy is the one I thought of immediately when I saw the title of this thread. My wife would always remark about her attire. I would always remind her "It's TV, dear!"

Another fun only-on-TV thing is women who get dressed up to hang around their own homes. I know when I've got a lazy Saturday planned, I'll totally wear a cocktail dress and heels.

We were watching a movie the other day, and the wife was wearing heels while cooking dinner for the family. I guess shows just don't think bare feet or socks look good, since most characters are wearing shoes (women in heels) at all times.

Rachel Green from Friends. LOVED a ton of her clothes but some were ridiculous...especially the belt sweater thing in upper left hand corner:
