I was five years old when I found my first style idol. But instead of wanting to dress like the girls on 90210, my idol was an old detective in a wrinkled trench...yes I'm talking about Columbo (and yes I did have a very mature taste in TV lol).
Watching reruns, bundled up in one of my dad's coats, I had decided that detectives have the coolest style in the world. Five short years later I was ten and wanted to wear nothing but penny loafers, knee socks, and preppy plaid...I had discovered Nancy Drew. Fast forward another seven years and I was idolizing a badass blond teen sleuth with tough yet sometimes girly style, Veronica Mars.
The point of this story is that I spent most of my life idolizing famous detectives and their style, but not one of those detectives was as classy, cool and simply gorgeous as my current crime fighting fashion idol: Castle's Det. Kate Beckett, played by the wonderful Stana Katic.
I could go on for hours about how much I adore every single one of her outfits, but I'm gonna let the pictures speak for themselves:
No matter how crazy or hard the case, Beckett always looks perfect. In fact, I love her style so much that I often find myself browsing the internet to find the pieces she wears. This used to be a sometimes frustrating experience, until I discovered that the genius behind the show's amazing wardrobe is on Twitter. Costume Designer Luke Reichle tweets during the episodes, and answers every fashion related question – gone are the days of browsing through website after website to find a scarf or shirt. Thanks Luke!
