The Power Clashing of Mindy Lahiri on The Mindy Project

23 Apr

“This is canary yellow, my friend.”

Mindy Lahiri’s wardrobe is a colorful mix of pieces that shouldn’t go together and even when Mindy has misgivings about an outfit choice, she’ll still defend it vehemently. So let’s break down my favorite look from the latest episode of The Mindy Project “An Officer and a Gynecologist.”

Mindy KalingMindy Kaling posted this photo to her Instagram in February and it featured on “Out of the Box: Look of the Week” as I’m pretty obsessed with all things yellow. This coat is spectacular and is sadly not available for purchase as it was custom made by Mindy Project costume designer Salvador Perez. Mindy was right to yell about how amazing it is. Perez also designed the gown Kaling wore to this year’s Costume Designers Guild Awards.

It’s all about layering with Mindy and there’s a lot of doubling up with shift dresses and blouses. The silk hearts aflutter C Wonder blouse has been worn by Mindy previously on the show (in “L.A.”). Even while dealing with heartbreak and swearing off guys, Mindy still wears her heart(s) on her sleeve. Mindy has cultivated a fun and distinctive look; while some make fun of her for looking like a kindergarten teacher, there are also those like Jenny who are inspired by Mindy’s confidence and part of this boldness comes from how she dresses. This is ultimate power clashing with both pattern and color so pairing hearts, monochrome weave (the Trina Turk dress) with canary yellow perfectly showcases Mindy’s self-assured style.

What really sets this look of is the ultimate Olivia Pope accessory – well, if Olivia wore that shade of pink – and that is the Prada purse.

Just don’t get your earbuds tangled in your scarf.
