I first began my girl crush on Mindy Kaling when she was on The Office as the love-hungry, pop-culture-obsessed Kelly Kapor. She didn’t just act in the sitcom, she also wrote and directed for the show. My favorite women aren’t just pretty faces; Mindy is the whole package and it doesn’t stop there. She has now created her own show, The Mindy Project, where she is involved in every aspect of the production. She is creative in everything she does, so it’s no surprise that her wardrobe is colorful, inventive, and outside the box. If you have the guts to take style inspiration from Mindy Kaling, get ready to be bold and let your inhibitions disappear.
Her fashion is like her humor. It’s full of energy and pops of color, but stays clear of any pretentiousness. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, but she does take her fashion seriously. She’s not willing to shrink in the corner and let the models have all the high-fashion fun. She owns her voluptuous body and unapologetically wears what makes her feel great, and in turn, it makes her look great.
To capture the energy and vive of Mindy’s look in her show The Mindy Project, I put together seven outfits that can help you on your way. You can also check out her blog, The Concerns of Mindy Kaling, where she discusses fashion and her favorite products on occasion. You can also watch her show Tuesday evenings on Fox.
Animal Print and Sequins 1 of 7
Animal print is wild and chic, but add sequins to make it truly fabulous. This Mindy outfit might seem like a lot, but trust me, it's just enough.
Casual Chic 2 of 7
While it looks like the purse Mindy wears in The Mindy Project is from Chanel, this Saint Laurent version is similar and just as drool-worthy. Even when she's dressing casual, she likes nice things.
Pops of Colors 3 of 7
These shoes are a perfect example of the surprises that you can find in Mindy's wardrobe. Not everything is sugary sweet; sometimes she throws in a little edge. I paired this colorful dress with these amazing chunky boots, but her edge could manifest itself in blinged-out Nikes or gold-plated brass knuckle rings.
Short Shorts 4 of 7
Mindy is the most stylish doctor around. She rocks shorts with the rest of us and accessorizes to the max.
Jump for Jumpers! 5 of 7
Not all jumpers are created equal, but this waist-synching, hips-skimming, cap-sleeved number is sure to be flattering on the curvy Ms. Kaling, and you. But don't forget to bring it to life with some eye-popping accessories.
Sweaters and Stripes 6 of 7
Because Mindy plays a doctor, she's in her office a lot of the time. But being professional doesn't stop her from throwing some attitude in there. Work doesn't have to be boring.
Be Bold 7 of 7
Mindy Kaling looks great in bold colors, so she is sure to love this little pink number. But to amp up the fun and flirty nature of the outfit, she would probably add bright accessories. These orange shoes and bag are the perfect picks.
