With 90s and Y2k trends making a comeback, I have recreated several Rory Gilmore Outfits for 2024. Using modern clothing items, you can recreate these Gilmore Girl outfits, including the famous Rory Gilmore sweater outfit from the debut episode.
Gilmore Girls is an iconic series that began in the early 2000’s. As you probably know, the show is about the everyday life of a single mom, Lorelai, and her daughter, Rory. Of all the cast members, most fans either classify themselves as a Lorelai or a Rory. Both are highly relatable and have a great wardrobe!

11 Modern Rory Gilmore Inspired Outfits
The Style of Rory Gilmore Outfits
Rory’s style can be described as a mixed bag of various styles and she makes it work! Her outfits are a combination of the following clothing styles:
- 90’s fashion: Many of Rory’s most memorable outfits incorporate key elements from the 90s. Low rise jeans, lace trim camis, t-shirts under tank tops, and doc marten style boots.
- Tomboy trends: Jeans and converse are regularly rotated through Rory’s outfit selection on the show.
- Preppy: Chilton and Yale and the driving factors behind this one. Plaid skirts, blazers, and cashmere sweaters galore!
- Classy: Regular dinner with Loralei’s parents required Rory to dress in more feminine attire. We also can’t forget all of the beautiful dresses worn by Rory Gilmore throughout the years!
What is the Gilmore Girls Aesthetic?
The Gilmore Girls aesthetic peaks during the Fall season, though it can go year round as well! A fan favorite outfit came early on when Rory wore the infamous oversized cable knit sweater and jeans. We have that outfit (scroll to the end) and more to dig into and offer a little refresh for 2024!
Like I said, her most iconic wardrobe moments are from the Fall. To achieve the Gilmore Girls Aesthetic think plaid skirts paired with fishnets and leather boots. Cozy scarfs and pea coats. Layers. cozy textures. Leather bags and boots. Earth tones. You get the idea. Now lets get to those outfits!

Layers are a defining characteristic in Rory’s wardrobe. This basic striped t-shirt is a must for any 90’s outfit. I added clogs to this look as they are back in style and fit will with the sweater and jeans.

Rory Gilmore Outfits with Tomboy Vibes
Basic and so cute. Another fan favorite. It is comfortable and functional, yet still stylish.
Cami and Henley Sweater Outfit
This look is cute, but the lace cami had to go for the refresh I did. Luckily, I was able to source a super cute top with buttons on the arm and sleeve, very similar to Rory’s! I would wear this outfit tomorrow!
Rory Dress from the Dance Competition
This was on of my favorite episodes. This dress is cute and would make a fun costume to wear with your bestie!

Did Rory put “school girl” fashion on the map? Maybe! This outfit is why. There are so many ways to recreate this outfit for 2024. I chose a multi-button blazer and a-line plaid skirt.
Rory Gilmore Outfits with a Peacoat
This is one of those timeless Rory Gilmore outfits you can wear 20 years from now! LOVING this jacket I found!! It has a single collar and hidden button overlay (is that the name for it??). Regardless, I love how this mordern outfit came together. Couldn’t forget the large leather tote. She was always carrying around books, ya know!
