Sitcom Style: Who Would You Be?
Ever wondered which TV sitcom character you would be? We sure have. I asked my workmates who I would be and their first answers were George or Kramer from Seinfeld (rude, frankly). After further, more serious deliberation a real conclusion was drawn. Apparently, I'm Daria.
Whilst not technically a sitcom - and I'm not sure I hate the world quite as much as Daria - I can see the comparisons. Dry sense of humour and a general distain for everyone and everything...sounds about right (deep down I'm a nice person, I swear).
So that's personality... but what about style? To this question, I received another Seinfeld answer: Elaine. Personally, I think someone might just be a bit of a fan girl but you know what? I'll take it. She's '90s, a bit masculine, a bit feminine and always quite put together. Plus she's got some pretty sick moves.
Who would you be? We've chosen our fave sitcoms from the '80s, '90s and '00s with some current style comparisons to give you a little food for thought.

Are you the hopelessly cheery, full skirt, bright shirt wearing kind? Why you're straight out of Happy Days - and totally on trend. Just look at that neck tie game.

Want to know a secret? Our #1 '90s sitcom is really Friends but we knew you'd be expecting that. The runner up? None other than our favourite, short skirt wearing Nanny, Fran Fine. Are you the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan? This might be you.

The most loveable nerds around. If you find yourself wearing that same trusty jacket everyday and are far cooler than people give you credit for, see: Freaks and Geeks.

Corporate life more your speed? Maybe you spend your days faffing about in a pencil skirt, fetching coffee and dreaming that one day your name will be on the door? Congratulations: you're Suits. The best part? Corporate no longer equals boring.
