We loved Mindy Kaling as Kelly Kapoor on The Office, so it was not hard to fall in love with her when she started starring in her own show, The Mindy Project. She stars as Mindy Lahiri, an OB/GYN looking for her soul mate. The show is clever and witty, like Mindy herself and we love that parts of her shine through in the show. One of these things being style.

Mindy herself has pretty great style. She usually wears bright, fun colors, and she always looks amazing on the red carpet. So of course Mindy Lahiri has good style as well. And not just good style: style that can be replicated. She has a look that anyone can achieve at any time. Which we adore because who wants to fall in love with a style you can’t copy?

Mindy Kaling The Mindy Project Fashion from Fiction

In one episode of the FOX sitcom, Mindy attends a music festival that her fiancé (played by the adorable Anders Holm) is DJing at. Her festival outfit is killer and one that we would love to rock ourselves. Even though festival season is pretty much over, we are going to keep it in mind for next year.

Scratch that, we’re just going to wear it anyway.

Topshop Boxy Leather Biker Jacket, $370.00

Boxy Red Leather Jacket Topshop - Dress Link Mindy from The Mindy Project

We absolutely adore her bright red biker jacket in this episode. Everywhere we look everyone is rocking a burgundy leather jacket, but why not stand out with a bright cherry? Grey skies need a little color, and this is exactly what they called for. This Topshop number is a dream, but if the price tag is a little steep you could try this option from Macy’s.

Lovers + Friends Woodstock Shorts in Fireworks, $51.00

Lovers and friends woodstock shorts in fireworks - Dress Link Mindy from The Mindy Project

These firework printed shorts Mindy is wearing are amazing so we were so excited when we found an exact match. The shorts are from Lovers + Friends and hey, good news, they are on sale right now.

Urban Outfitters Truly Madly Deeply Scoopneck Slouch Pocket Tee, $24.00

Urban Outfitters slouchy t shirt - Dress Link Mindy from The Mindy Project

Everyone needs a good slouchy t-shirt. As Mindy has shown, they don’t just have to be lounge wear. They are a great accessory for events like festivals where you want to look cute, but still be comfortable. She is wearing a great heather purple, and this Urban Outfitters tee with the front pocket is our ideal replica.

Dillard’s Arturo Chiang Chelsea Booties, $99.99

Dillards Arturo Chiang Chelsea Bootie - Dress Link Mindy from The Mindy Project

Mindy got it right when she chose a bootie. Granted for music festivals we wouldn’t always recommend this footwear but provided to you are wearing this outfit anywhere else, go for the suede bootie. We love the buckle accent on this pair.

Ralph Lauren Suede Fringe Crossbody, $248.00

Ralph Lauren Crossbody fringe handbag - Dress Link Mindy from The Mindy Project

To tie everything together you are going to need a bag. We suggest taking one last cue from Mindy and bringing the suede back into the ensemble with a suede fringe bag. It is fun and functional.

Watch The Mindy Project Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c.
