'A' is letting me post tonight since there isn't a new episode tonight and he/she/it is off ruffling the Pretty Little Liars feathers. Tonight we'll take a look back on the fashion highlights of the first two seasons of Pretty Little Liars and examine how the girls' style has evolved over time.

I'm happy to report that Aria has remained herself throughout all three seasons thus far. Her style can be described as bohemian, gothic and edgy, but she always keeps her outfits balanced, which is what makes her so relateable. She's not afraid to pair a feminine floral dress with a stack of studded bangles and combat boots. She also keeps her outfits in proportion by choosing clothes that fit her petite stature; to avoid swimming in her clothes, Aria chooses tighter clothes, shorter hemlines to elongate her legs, picks cropped jackets and adds belts to emphasize her waist. Her personality always shines through with her accessories and creative use of clothes; instead of wearing a slip dress underneath her sheer raspberry chiffon dress, she wears a striped bodysuit. Any girl can copy the outfits that Aria wears, but it takes a true original to develop her own personal style and execute it consistently and creatively.

It's no secret that "Queen B" Hanna Marin is my favorite liar! When season 1 started, we thought we had another unoriginal ditzy, shoplifting blonde on our hands. Maybe Hanna isn't the most intellectually gifted liar, but she is a talented fashionista and she doesn't have the attitude problem of characteristic of a Queen B. She may not have a lot of depth, but she does absorb what goes on around her and reflects her emotions through her clothes. For this reason, Hanna's style is constantly changing. When she's feeling confident she's brings the glam with lots of sequins and statement jewelry; when she's feeling insecure, Hanna wears muted colors, like pastels, and either covers up with a jacket or blazer or wears looser clothing, like in her eating disorder days. Even still, I love her trendy feminine style.
