Unlikely Style Inspiration: Dexter Morgan’s Murderin’ Outfit
I love the show “Dexter.” Probably to an unhealthy degree. For example, I spend approximately 30 percent of my workday sitting at my desk daydreaming about my friendships with the characters on the show. When my brothers and I took a trip to Florida this summer, we sneaked into the apartment complex where Dexter the character lives, claiming we were visiting our friend “Sheila,” before taking a bunch of awkward photos, giggling like schoolgirls and booking it out of there. And when the show introduced a wretched new character in season 2, I hated her so much that I actually burst into tears one night while brushing my teeth. My boyfriend was confused, to say the least.
I could go on forever about all the reasons I think this show is awesome, but for the purposes of this post, let me just say that one of the my favorite things about it is the styling. I love the bright Miami colors and the distinct personal style of each character. Dexter always wears the same outfit when he’s in serial killer mode, so I thought in honor of Halloween weekend and my general obsession, I’d assemble a little inspiration board of how to get this look.
The look is simple but effective: a brown thermal Henley, cargo pants, combat boots, and maybe some sassy blood drop earrings to round things out.
