Three years after its last season, Pretty Little Liars is still remembered for the stellar fashion sense of its cast. While the teen drama series enraptured viewers in a spiral of mysteries, plot twists and intense cliffhangers, the sartorial sensibilities of the characters balanced it all. The protagonist that certainly stood out, in particular, was Aria Montgomery, played by Lucy Hale. While the rest of the girls veered towards a casual vibe, Aria had a knack for shaking things up when it came to her outfits.
Mixing different prints and textures was almost like her side hustle and pairing it with statement jewellery was her art. Along with channelling a bold vibe, she was fearless when it came to using fashion as a tool to express her personality and mood. In case you haven’t watched the show or have simply left it in the past, allow us to refresh your memory. We’ve put together Aria’s 7 best looks from the hit series, which we think are relevant even today.
Pleated Brown Skirt With A Skull Top
If there has to be an outfit, which is emblematic of Aria’s true personality, this would be it. Donning a pleated brown leather skirt with a top emblazoned with skulls, this look amalgamates her edgy attitude with her flirty side. Paired with her iconic statement jewellery like chain-link necklaces and cluster rings, she mastered the ability to be ‘out there’ but in a sophisticated way.
Animal Stripes And Prints
Aria wasn't afraid to play with unconventional prints and patterns. Pairing a leopard print skirt and a peachy tee together, she topped off her look with a white, striped blazer and pulled off the outfit with panache.
Preppy With A Side Of Chic
We’re going to say it. Only Aria can add a broderie anglaise skirt and moto jacket in an outfit formula and manage to slay it. Even before ‘preppy’ became a term in fashion, she nailed the look in a rather unconventional manner by opting for an edgy leather jacket and printed bag.
A classic Aria outfit is never complete without a statement. For this look, she elevated a simple A-line dress by playing with colours. Inclining towards hues like sky blue, vermillion, cobalt, grey and black; her look was dressy as well as relatable for the viewers.
The Bell Sleeves Wedding Dress
For her wedding, Aria opted for a short, form-fitting dress that honestly stole the season finale. With sheer lace detailing, flowy sleeves and intricate beading, this white number will always be a classic.
Graphic Dress With A Pop Of Colour
Vivid colours, speech bubbles and comic characters came together to create this dress, which was seamlessly pulled off by Aria. The dress was equal parts modern and traditional. While the puff sleeves were a classic nod to the 1980s, the mesh detailing in the front was the perfect way to show off a little skin in all its subtlety.
Monochrome With Prints
Way ahead of the fashion game in those times, Aria gave her monochromatic oxblood dress a refreshing spin by layering. With help of a striped camisole, she lent the outfit a playful vibe by breaking the monotony yet staying in the monochromatic lane.
