On Jen and Judy's Different Styles
"Judy's attire conveys approachability. Her clothes help you understand that Judy is super sweet, almost like a hug."
Ever since Dead to Me's first season, Trayce has used Jen and Judy's clothing as a visual reminder of just how dissimilar they are. This, of course, required a deep understanding of the characters' personalities. "Jen is a super strong woman, so her clothes are an extension of that," the costume designer told POPSUGAR. "She wears darker tones, strong silhouettes, and her clothes are almost like armor. Structured suits with bold striped or solid shirts, dark jeans, and chunky booties all shout out, 'Stay out of my way.'" Well color us fascinated!
Conversely, Judy's wardrobe is the equivalent of a warm embrace. "Judy's attire conveys approachability. Her clothes help you understand that Judy is super sweet, almost like a hug," Trayce explained. Her tendency to combine high-end and economical finds in one look reflects her life path. "Judy comes from having to make do, so she became a master thrift shopper, pairing those finds with her more expensive pieces that she was able to mindfully purchase while being in a relationship with wealthy Steve."
