Style Icons – Mindy Kaling

By: Becca Bojarzin


You may know Mindy Kaling from The Office, where she was a writer and the actress who played Kelly Kapoor. You may know her from The Mindy Project, which she created, writes and stars in. You may know her from her two hilarious books Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me? (and Other Concerns) and Why Not Me? She is talented, hilarious and one of my role models.

On the more superficial side of things, Mindy Kaling is absolute fashion goals. When I think of Mindy’s style I think fitted dresses, fun prints and bold colours. Fashion seems to be a huge part of Mindy’s life and she definitely knows how to work it. She dresses with class and elegance and still manages to ooze girly-ness and feminine flare! Hot pink gowns and printed cocktail dresses are what we have come to love as she graces any stage or red carpet.

Personally, Mindy inspires me to incorporate colour and patterns into my wardrobe. I often steer myself toward darker colours and neutrals, but lately when I shop I think to myself as I peruse the racks, “what would Mindy wear?” I own many printed pieces that were very much inspired by Ms. Kaling’s style. I haven’t quite found myself wearing hot pink or bright yellow yet, but maybe I will get there some day!
