I'm not going to write a real ode. I have no sense for poetry. However, this is definitely a style appreciation post of the one and only Clara Oswald.
Today is the Series 9 premier of Doctor Who. It is also the last series Jenna Coleman will play Clara Oswald. I thought it pertinent to celebrate today in style, Clara Oswald style. I rounded up one of my best friends, Samantha, to help (just so you know she has never watched Doctor Who and no idea who Clara is).
Sticking to the adventurer style, it was Season 7 Clara we emulated. Her penchant for layers, anorak jackets, and booties are my favorite parts of her early style. It is safe to say that watching this character in Doctor Who has helped my style grow to become what it is today. Seeing her style evolution from full time nanny to full time teacher is spectacular. Season 7 was full of fantastic off duty and adorable outfits. Season 8 showed her in more business casual and streamlined looks. Obviously a job change would result in a wardrobe change, but it could also have been to fit the personality of the Doctor she was traveling alongside. The Eleventh Doctor was more fun and a tad bit goofy. The Twelfth Doctor is definitely more serious and brooding. This stint will make her the longest running companion so far. I will definitely miss all the dresses, peter pan collars, oxfords, and jackets.
So, this is for you Clara Oswald, the most stylish companion yet.
