You May Not Know the Ladies of Twin Peaks, but You've Been Taking Cues From Their Looks

What can I say about David Lynch's cult '90s TV show, Twin Peaks? At first, I didn't know what to think when my boyfriend suggested we watch the show. Side note: he's a massive Lynch fan and constantly sings James's cringe-worthy song "Just You" for giggles. One episode in, I was hooked not just for the suspenseful storyline and Agent Dale Cooper's undying love of coffee (because same) but for the leading ladies' style, too. I even bought a David Lynch illustrated t-shirt by NYC brand DeerDana, for crying out loud.

The mastermind behind these iconic looks was costume designer Patricia Norris, and the show earned her an Emmy for outstanding costume design in a series in 1990. A majority of the show's costumes are quintessential '90s, and as you probably know, this era, including these sunglasses, is having a major moment. From Audrey Horne to Laura Palmer (and yes, even the Log Lady), let's revisit their biggest style moments from the classic '90s show just in time for the new season to air on Showtime on May 21.

Audrey Horne

Audrey Horne, who plays Laura Palmer's classmate, has a wardrobe that's full of '50s-era silhouettes. Think soft, feminine pieces like a blush-toned crew-neck sweater tucked into a knee-length plaid skirt.

Laura Palmer

Laura Palmer

Even though Laura Palmer, the main character of the show, is her school's homecoming queen, her look is anything but. She often wears sultry ensembles including this floor-length number that features a thigh-high slit.

Donna Hayward

Donna Hayward, who plays Laura Palmer's best friend, is in love with the idea of being in love, and the same could be said for her clothes. She has a penchant for romantic-hued patterned sweaters, plaid vests, and blazers.

Josie Packard

Josie Packard was probably the chicest of the bunch. The secretive character is always wearing fashion-forward pieces like a mink coat or oversize pantsuit. Don't forget to accessorize with pearls and her classic red lip.

Margaret Lanterman aka the Log Lady

What can I say about Margaret Lanterman aka the Log Lady? She has probably the most eclectic sense of style and is usually seen wearing layers and, of course, carrying a log. Her go-to look consists of a plaid flannel, wool jacket, and red glasses.
