Let’s meet them.

Our panel of style specialists, from L-R: Lisa Patulny, Editor of Byrdie, Ashling Lee, Editorial Assistant, POPSUGAR, Alexandra Whiting, Life-style Editor, POPSUGAR and Genevieve Rota, Leisure Editor, POPSUGAR



Lisa: Ash is the proper instance of somebody being so nice at their job it doesn’t matter what they put on. He’s the Steve Jobs of Pokemon trainers.


Ashling: The last word chill, cool-dude get-up: baseball cap, denim, open shirt layered over a v-neck. I imply he’s my form-of namesake so is robotically cool. ;)

Genevieve: I do know this man! He’s just a little cutie. However he’s only a child, proper? We are able to’t decide his fashion, his mum most likely picked it out for him. (However Ash, please attempt to keep on with a extra cohesive color scheme subsequent time. And why is your shirt stained poo brown?)

Alexandra: When the animator was designing Ash, he had an image of Michael J. Fox circa Again to the Future caught on the wall. He doesn’t get loads of outfit alterations all through the collection both, however he’s made it iconic so I can’t actually fault it. Generally an outfit is all concerning the angle.


Lisa: Alain, we have to speak. Harem pants usually are not for tucking into boots—these are skinny denims my buddy. Harem pants are for individuals who’ve simply come again from discovering themselves in Peru and quote Neruda so much and infrequently bathe. Additionally why is the Cheshire Cat’s tail wrapped round your neck?


Ashling: I discover it actually arduous to layer clothes properly – it’s a mixture of both not proudly owning sufficient layerable clothes or simply laziness – however this man seems completely prepped for trans-seasonal climate. Is that scarf hand-made?

Genevieve: This man is clearly fairly stylish and with a reputation like Alain, how might he not be? Is scarf round his neck, or a creature? I’m not 100 % positive however both approach, he must maintain it. I’m not into the gloves (too Michael Jackson circa “Dangerous”) however I'm into the hassle he’s put in layering three items on his prime half.

Alexandra: I've just a few questions on Alain’s scarf. Is it alive? Is it a Pokemon? Or does Alain merely exist in a decrease degree of gravity the place scarfs float and garments stay properly aerated. Jokes at Alain’s expense apart, the child seems contemporary off the Marc Jacobs AW18 runway. Elevated sports activities luxe with a contact of effeminate fancy. Basic MJ.


Lisa: Apparently the one a part of Daybreak’s physique that feels the chilly is her neck. That’s the one affordable clarification for this outfit which consists of a skirt the scale of a postage stamp, a singlet, considered one of Harvey Specter’s vests and A SCARF. Get modified Daybreak, you’re not going out like that.

Ashling: WHAT FUN! I imply, she’s sporting millennial pink, so she already wins.

Genevieve: MILLENNIAL PINK! Additionally, moon boots as style? Consolation degree: excessive. Daybreak is approach forward of her time, and she or he is aware of it.

Alexandra: Daybreak seems like a basic US primary circa 2005. You already know, the mall-strolling, Ugg-sporting (she truly is sporting Uggs, proper?), gum-chewing primary with approach too many equipment. I can see six objects I'd have beforehand listed as “immediate outfit updaters” in my magazine days: beanie, hairclips, neck scarf, vest (so ‘00s!), wrist watch and black knee-excessive socks. Really, I feel Britney Spears wore this precise outfit to the premier of Crossroads.


Lisa: Possibly I shouldn’t have been so harsh on Daybreak—this man is strolling round in a pirate coat with no shirt on. Additionally, can we speak concerning the dimension of his collar? I’ll say it. That collar is compensating for one thing.


Ashling: I've so many questions for this dude. Is he shirtless below that trench? Why? Is that intentional? How lengthy did it take to develop that moustache? Is it simple to take care of? Doesn’t it get in the way in which when he tries to talk?

Genevieve: Drake seems mad at me so I’ll tread rigorously. You already know, the coat is unbelievable. The belt, should you add a steel G, is a lifeless ringer for the Gucci one “fashion girls” can’t seem to get enough of. And the harem pants are at all times a sure when it comes to easy fashion. However all I can see is that moustache, and I’d a lot choose if that wasn’t the case. Let it go, Drake. Exhibit that chiseled jaw.

Alexandra: I’ll pay the nautical nod to John Galliano, however there’s a superb line between couture and costume, and sadly that is the latter.


Lisa: Elesa is sporting Gen Z Yellow which implies she’s too younger to know what occurs to your abs when your metabolism goes to shit.


Ashling: That is additionally one other very on-pattern color – yellow. I kinda dig this – it might be a bit bizarre – like, I nonetheless don’t actually know what’s happening right here with the dangly stuff – however she manages to put on a skimpy outfit properly.

Genevieve: I’m going to go proper forward and assume these headphone tentacles do one thing highly effective - in any other case I’m undecided why they’re there. Tights get a tough trot as a style fake pas however with legs like these I’m glad Elesa is throwing warning to the wind. Additionally, we have now one other trendsetter in our midst: Gen Z yellow is a total thing right now, and Elesa was there first.

Alexandra: There isn't a doubt jazzed-up headphones have had a number of runway moments. Dolce and Gabbanna, Fendi, Chanel, however these look extra Alexander Wang. Plenty of minimize-outs, a minimal color palette, pores and skin-tight leggings, oh she’s even sporting a chocker, this can be a Wang woman for positive.


Lisa: Lose the previous man braces and she or he’s principally Bella Thorne.

Ashling: So. Rattling. Cute. I really like all the pieces about this – the brilliant denim overalls, the crop prime, the pig tails . . . Would truly copy this and put on in Summer time. Or if I used to be going to a music pageant.

Genevieve: How cute is that this gal! And why isn’t she in Bondi the place she belongs?

Alexandra: Now Misty I do know properly, and I've lengthy lamented that she is dressed like a tween who was despatched to Summer time Camp and grew out of all her garments. The highest is shrunk, her shorts are principally underwear, and I do know she’s sporting braces that might recommend she wants them to carry up too-huge pants, however I’d argue woman is utilizing that stretch to strap down her boobs that simply grew in – mum forgot to pack her coaching bra. And the facet pony. I can’t.


Lisa: Not joking—is that this a Gossip Woman character? I odor a lawsuit.

Ashling: That is good however in a type of common approach. Nothing tremendous offensive or bizarre, simply very inventory normal feminine online game character type of factor. The teeny tiny waist, quick mini skirt, thigh excessive socks, voluminous hair...


Genevieve: OK this woman is so clearly based mostly on Serena Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Woman — or is it vice versa? Serena is unquestionably the most well-liked woman at school. There’s an excessive amount of happening however she pulls it off in a Cher Horowitz kinda approach. Do individuals put on sun shades on their hats? This has me confused.

Alexandra: Hey woman! Serena jogs my memory precisely of Stacey from The Child-Sitters Membership. Stacey grew up in NYC however then moved to the provinces (properly, Stoneybrook) dwelling her huge metropolis life behind however conserving that sense of style. It was additionally the ‘90s. Serena, Stacey, identical factor.


Lisa: Steven is that bizarre pale man in his late ‘20s who solely dates artwork faculty college students, has a placed on English accent and swears he’s Noel Fielding’s second greatest buddy. (A fast FB search will inform you he grew up in Padstow and used to put on Etnies and loads of Billabong.)


Ashling: I’m getting a little bit of Dorian Gray and weirdly, Targaryen vibes from this man? (Is it the hair I'm wondering?)

Genevieve: Can I simply say that I had NO concept Pokemon had so many human characters. Is that this a current improvement? I really feel like Steven ought to give Matt Preston his cravat again and possibly ease up on the pores and skin-tight trousers. The torture units round his wrists can go, after which I feel we’ve acquired a reasonably slick dude! Cool hair.

Alexandra: Should you advised me Steven was Karl Lagerfeld’s new muse/companion I wouldn’t be shocked. I’d most likely stalk his social media and write 5 tales about him. His hair color is my subsequent huge choose for color tendencies (pink is finished), Kylie Jenner has already tried it in order quickly as Summer time pageant season hits you’ll see it in all places, topped with a flower crown. The one a part of the outfit I feel Karl would veto is the crown-like jacket cuffs. He leads the home of Chanel and Coco at all times stated “take one factor off earlier than you permit the home”, plus, Karl doesn’t like being upstaged.


Lisa: I refuse to remark. Get it? That was a rubbish joke. (Did it once more.)

Ashling: What . . . is that this factor and is it OK? It seems scared shitless and in want of a young loving house.


Genevieve: Um, I really like its colouring? Khaki inexperienced is all the fashion for interiors. And the millennial pink on his/her wings doesn’t go unnoticed – fashionable contact, Trubbish.

Alexandra: I really feel such as you’ve added Trubbish as a joke in an in any other case very severe examination of Anime outfits.
