A show that revolves around six friends residing in the city that never sleeps, struggling in the roller coaster ride called life, all the while being there for each other through the ups and downs — F.R.I.E.N.D.S. The 90’s show that everyone could relate to and the show that made people feel the best kind of stomach pain from laughing so hard, was and is still one of the most loved tv series up until today. Aside from the plot, the humor and the relatable episodes, one factor that made this show a hit are the actors that brought its characters to life. If you’re fashion savvy, surely you’re obsessed with the style of Rachel Green in the show. It’s no secret that Jennifer Aniston could rock any outfit, so here are a few style trends that her character in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. made popular.
Before people started calling it crop tops, Rachel Green already donned midriffs and paired it with loose pants and showed a little of her stomach. Aside from Jennifer Aniston from F.R.I.E.N.D.S., another iconic character who also sported a midriff is Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman. Both actresses looked so good and made everyone jealous, leading them to wear it too.
Denims are a classic, and it was a big trend back in the 90’s and Rachel Green might have something to do with that. In one of the early episodes, Rachel wore a denim overall with a black and white striped undershirt and finished off by layering an oversized blazer. Not the normal choice one would go for but, it definitely looked good on her.

We may have seen this trend being worn today which is inspired by Korean Fashion. I hate to break it to you, but Rachel Green already wore this back in the 90’s. She may not have worn it in the colors we consider cute today but she looked good nevertheless.
Long before Britney Spears made plaid a big thing around the world, there was Rachel Green already rocking plaid mini skirts and tight dresses on the show. On one episode with Ross’s monkey, she was seen wearing a plaid mini skirt paired with a turtleneck long sleeved top and with an updo hair and knee high varsity socks. On other episodes, she also plaid dresses and plaid skirts paired with equally fashionable tops.
I’m sure there are a lot more of these style trends by Rachel Green that we’ve all adored, but these are some of the ones that really blew up, making Rachel Green/ Jennifer Aniston a trendsetter we look up to until now. Whether we let her wear an elegant one piece jumpsuit paired with an amazon sterling silver earrings or an oversized jersey paired with her iconic braided pigtails hairstyle, she will once again make us drool over how good she looks.
