16 Times Busy Philipps's Style Was Just the COOLEST
Busy Philipps was born in the wrong decade. That said, I'm not altogether sure what year it is that she should claim as her own. Which has quickly led me to the understanding that Busy Philipps is my personal style gift from the gods—showing off all the best wears from the last 50 years, and then some. And all, quite honestly, with more flair than they held when they were first debuted decades prior.
Busy is one of the OGs of Instagram, showing off everything from her workouts to outfits of the day on her feed nearly since the platform launched. It was a social media outlet that effortlessly took Kim of Freaks and Geeks, Audrey of Dawson's Creek, and more memorable on-screen characters and made Busy herself feel like she was my actual real-life friend. Even if it was sadly far from the truth. Following, the world was allowed a longer peek into it all with her recently-cancelled talk show, Busy Tonight, which this particular author couldn't get enough of and hopes to see it return to another network for another season in the future—fingers crossed. But beyond her real-life conversations, plethora of A-list guests, and hysterical guest-starred games, it is her wardrobe that I might have the most hard time parting with on such chic regularity,
Busy's style is unique, eclectic, fun-loving, but also carries an air of modern chicness that is largely unmatched. With a wardrobe rife with ruffled dresses, smocked-front gowns, metallic pants, and denim jackets alike, she's likely spanned every fashion era from the Oregon Trail to '90s grunge, making stops at 1950s housewife, 1970s disco dancer, and more on the way. Ahead, my recent favourites . . . but a deep dive into Busy's Instagram feed will give you countless style gems where these all came from as well.
