The Wish List: Joan Watson’s Zara Outfits on Elementary

14 Apr

Joan Watson’s wardrobe is full of stunning outfits on Elementary and this character has featured multiple times on The Wish List. The most recent entry was this incredible Victoria Beckham ensemble which practically had me drooling over my keyboard while I wrote about it. Joan’s costuming tends to come from high end stores and there is an aspirational quality to these outfits. There is not an expectation that Joan will wear pieces that fall into what I would call affordable and I don’t expect to watch Elementary and think I could pop online and buy whatever she is wearing. In recent episodes however, Joan has worn several items from Zara and this store does fall into my budget range.

Other Wish Lists have covered this notion of characters wearing clothes which don’t make you weep when you see the price tag with Jane the Virgin doing an excellent job of mixing designer with lower cost items and it is refreshing when this is the case.

In last week’s Elementary “One Watson, One Holmes” Joan wore a couple of printed Zara delights. First a mixed fabric top sticking to her general muted color palette.

The coat Joan is wearing has appeared in previous episodes and fits into the higher end bracket (a fancy coat is an investment piece and the brr cold weather we have seen on Elementary this season shows how vital good outerwear is even if the price makes my eyes bulge cartoon style).
