10 Outfits from The Nanny to Copy Right Now

10 Outfits from The Nanny to Copy Right Now

by Veronica Rush

Growing up, there were few people whose style I worshipped more than Fran Fine. She’s bold, unconventional and fearless when it comes to getting dressed, a true femme fatale. And 8 year old me didn’t understand why I wasn’t allowed to totter around in stiletto heels and micro skirts just like her. But more than 25 years later, after the first episode aired, the archive of inspiration from The Nanny is ripe with incredible outfits, all of which I can now proudly say I don’t need my Mommy’s approval to wear. (Sorry Mom.) Of course, with 6 seasons to binge and several incredible ensembles per episode, there are WAY more looks to borrow from Fran that I haven’t even touched upon here. But keep reading, because I’ve chosen 10 of Fran’s best moments that would have Mr. Sheffield’s jaw to the floor.

One of the most iconic and my personal favorite outfits from The Nanny is this Herve Leger dress paired with this amazing Moschino heart bag. I’m definitely wearing something similar this Valentine’s Day! While the dress itself is may seem like your average LBD, the neckline and structure set it apart with all it’s va-va-voooooom! The bag is such a refreshing and whimsical touch that really elevates the look, proving that even when going the more classic route, Fran has to do something to stand out.

Now this is by far my all time favorite outfit from Fran. It’s the look I dream about at night, wondering when I’ll ever get my hands on such a fantastic piece. (In fact, I once even had the exact vintage Moschino skirt in my Etsy cart and didn’t purchase it in time. It still haunts me). Especially as a budding musician now, I sometimes wonder if this skirt didn’t single handedly push me towards picking up the piano in the first place.

It just doesn’t get more badass diva than this. The sunnies, the fur coat, the fact she’s even wearing a fur coat with white shorts. It’s kind of confusing and fully fabulous. Not to mention, this years hottest accessory is a sassy, sarcastic butler, so like, super on trend.

There were two moments when Fran wore oversized menswear and despite the fact that it went completely against her usual figure-hugging style, she still made it totally sexy. This Queens College top gets turned up a notch with her pigtails. And the messy bun and giant red jersey that she wears during a strip tease have me searching endlessly for something similar in every thrift store I visit.

Another killer Moschino moment. This outfit is perfect for those days you want to look like the coolest Girlscouts leader EVER. And who cares if you can’t find a jacket with patches already sewn on? I say, grab any pink jacket and start “earning” patches for whatever you deem important enough to get one for. Paid your bills on time this month? That deserves a patch! Before you know it, you’ll be covered in patches that actually mean something to you.

Have we realized yet that Moschino basically created all of my favorite Fran Fine looks? Because this is yet another one. It’s such a perfect take on the simple jeans-and-a-top look and proves it’s possible to stand out even in the most simple of outfits. 

Outfit #7 - Episode: Pilot

Another whimsical piece from Moschino, but this one is extra special being that it’s the first Moschino outfit we see Fran in! The collar is absolutely brilliant and the cherry buttons are too cool. We saw fruit inspired pieces in high supply last year so creating a similar look is actually quite doable! 

Outfit #8 - Episode: Unknown

Here’s a look that’s actually NOT Moschino… Okay I lied it is Moschino. But it reminded so much of this fabulous sweater I once spotted from Suki LA! Being that it was vintage, it’s no longer available, but I’ve done my best to link a ton of other similar options above. 

Outfit #9 - Episode: Unknown

This Todd Oldham dress was one of my all time favorite style moments from her. The colors and the pattern are reminiscent of a gorgeous tapestry from Asia and the cut is just to die for! Paired with yet another heart shaped mini bag by Moschino and some sheer tights, it was so flawless. I love how Fran isn’t afraid to layer statement pieces rather than just picking one.

And finally, last but not least, this little number. A fuzzy robe with a tiara? Yes please! This is the ultimate style statement that says even when lounging around in pajamas, you can still be utterly fabulous. 

I hope these looks inspire you as much as they’ve inspired me over the years! Fran was absolutely a woman who knew the world was her runway and was fearless when it came to style. Let me know if I missed any gems in the comments below and until next time, don’t forget, the world is your runway too!
