‘Rizzoli and Isles’ is back and with it brings Maura Isles’s great fashion sense. The show may be about solving homicides, but you can always count Maura to still be in style while examining the bodies and who wouldn’t want her shoe collection.
My favorite Maura style from this week’s episode was the first dress she wore: a leather and virgin wool blend textured plaid dress by Hugo Boss. This was a very sophisticated dress and edgier than Miss Isles usually wears. It went nice with her new bangs for this season.
When I first saw the dress, I wasn’t so sure I liked it, until I saw the complete dress. It’s quite edgy for her, but she pulls it off. The contrasting fabrics is what really makes it interesting. At first glance you may think it’s a shirt and skirt. The plaid mixed with the wool compliment the leather nicely. Her bangs give the look a youthful appearance, especially with her hair pulled back into a pony tail.
A more youthful style may be what the costume designers are going for this season. Sasha Alexander’s second dress was a Chefchaouen-print belted pleated dress by Akris, a Swiss high end fashion brand. This was a very youthful looking dress and not Maura’s normal style at all. The first dress was sophisticated with hint of youthfulness with her hair pulled back, but the second one just looks way too young for her.
The Akris dress is very casual and Maura doesn’t really do casual. I hope season six sees more dresses like the edgier Hugo Boss dress, than this childish dress. Or just going back to her usual style would be great too. It’s just not her style. She has sophistication everywhere she goes. She dresses to impress, not to feel comfortable.
Season six has just started, so we’ll have a lot more of Maura’s fashion coming our way. I can’t wait to see what the costume designers have in store for us this season! I’m always looking forward to seeing what Miss Isles wears. It’s even better if Jane has some sort of comment for it.
