As Jill's princess-y sister-in-law on Odd Mom Out, Abby Elliott channels a satirical Upper- East-Side mom with ease. To help her get into the role, costume designer Staci Greenbaum pulls looks from designers with a clean, feminine style. (Think Ted Baker and Tory Burch.)
We chatted with Abby before last night's season-two premiere, and asked her if Brooke's style has influenced her off-duty wardrobe. "She’s so colorful," Abby said. "I could never pull that off... But, I think that I definitely incorporated a little more of her ladylike style [into my own wardrobe], and I think this season [Brooke's] style has also evolved. She’s a little edgier now that she owns a fashion company and I think that our styles have kind of meshed together a little this season." We'll be looking out for Brooke's style to evolve in each Odd Mom Out episode. And in the meantime, here are some of the Upper East Side queen's classic style tips from season one.
1. Go For Full, Flouncy Skirts
Here's Brooke in her element: posing pretty in a perfectly accessorized ensemble. For this scene, Staci styled the catty character in Ted Baker's floral-print dress, pale-pink peplum jacket, and pink-and-nude snakeskin pumps. Brooke also wore a custom, feather fascinator.
Brooke also wore a full skirt—this one by Halcyon—to her season-one "sip and see."
2. Tweed Means Business
For a more businesslike look, Brooke dons Tory Burch. Here, she's looking lovely (if a bit haughty) in a tweed-and-crepe dress with a jeweled neckline.
3. Have a Necklace For Every Occasion
Brooke's rarely scene without a jeweled necklace of some sort—even when she's delivering a baby.
4. Believe in Flower Power
Though she tends to favor colors, Brooke does wear black sometimes. As long as it's floral-printed. Here, she's wearing a Karen Millen dress with Alexis Bittar earrings.
And for this dinner scene, she wore a floral-print dress by Tory Burch.
5. On Casual Fridays, We Wear Skinny Jeans and Pumps
On occasion, Brooke does dress down. Her signature pop of bright lipstick stays in place, but she switches out the dresses for skinny jeans with a printed silk blouse from Parker. Her footwear in this scene? Tan suede pumps from Vince.
The same pumps helped Brooke stand tall here, for her Upper East Side encounter with Jill. In this scene, she's also wearing white jeans by 7 For All Mankind, a Tory Burch silk horse-print blouse, and a Hugo Boss pink coat. Naturally, that handbag on her arm is Hermès. -Additional reporting by Jocelyn Vena
