Which Game of Thrones character style is yours?
Winterrrrr is cominggggg, and so is the epic series finale! The most awaited finale of television history ever is just right around the corner, and with the Game of Thrones fever rising, we thought it is the perfect time to raise this question. Which character is your favorite and which one's style do you admire the most? We have been binge-watching the show since 2011, we are yet not ready to bid adieu to the series, but alas only two weeks until we finally know who sits on the Iron Throne of Westeros. All the lead actresses have their patent styles right from season one to eight, all defining their own personality and what their characters were meant to portray.
For the ones who have never watched the show, it is about the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms and follows a web of alliances and conflicts among the noble dynasties either vying to claim the throne or fighting for independence from it. The costumes spoke volumes of style in the medieval times and how they were used in the series drew inspiration from a number of sources, such as Japanese and Persian fashion. So here we are finally, presenting to you the attires of the women of Westeros that made us say, ''Omg, I wish I could wear the same!" From winter furs to slip dresses and armors to crowns, we are taking you to a trip down memory lane as we focus on each lead character's fashion game. Many of the style choices were practical, especially when it came to a particular region or occasion, clothing was also a strong way to show the evolution of a character and their relationship to power and the Throne.
First up we begin with the youngest of all, Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams), who proved it to us that age does not define strength and valor. They showcase her as a badass tomboy girl whose beauty is not always defined by femme-friendly gowns or extravagant dresses. She is donned in hard sewn clothes in usually monochromes and sticks to gruff clothing as she opts for shades of brown, beige, grey, and black. Her garb is definitely still feminine, with her shift dress and shirt combo.

Next up, we have a gentle dove, Sansa Stark (played by Sophie Turner). From unwanted marriages to extreme conditions, she has handled it with grace and dignity. Everything Sansa wears, from her jewelry to her most luxurious gowns, symbolizes her innocence and femininity. She wears gilded dresses and elaborate hairstyles with detailed belts and moves onto wearing dark colors, winter furs, and silhouettes. She goes through an evolution of her own and clearly communicates to her power and poise, with utmost grace.

Then we talk of the one who is a beauty with brains, Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke). She's hardworking and fair, liberating and strong, but she is also stubborn and fierce to lead her own army of various tribes. She is capable of taking care of herself and her people, not matter what comes her way. Whether she is dolled up in silk dresses or winter coats. Her clothes have been determined by the geography and cultural signifiers of those around her. Danny's style statement needs to have the strength to her but also vulnerability is easily portrayed.
Mother of the Dragons, Danny, always looks her best.
She has got this sense of power and also a sense of immortality, she is none other than Cersei Lannister (played by Lena Kathren Headey). The woman we love to hate, and cannot get enough of. Always dressed ostentatiously in her signature Lannister colors of red and gold, she is a spoilt queen. She is adorned in her crown of braids, and is wrapped in the kimono-like style attire. Cersei is never without her lioness pendant or heavy statement necklace when playing the powerful political force that she is. Her character speaks volume of royalty yet cruelty, and her dressing portrays that.
The Queen always plotting and planning her next move.
These are few of the many fashionable and powerful women on the show who wish to acquire the throne and simultaneously own the looks. In all the scheming, and planning, their clothes subtly convey their emotions and the environment around them. Let us wait to eagerly see who wears the crown ultimately until then we binge watch all the previous seasons.
