13 of Broad City’s Best — and Funniest — Fashion Moments
It broke our collective hearts when Comedy Central announced that season five of Broad Citywould be the last and that we'd have to say goodbye to our favorite, funniest BFFs. In the five years that we've gotten to know Ilana Wexler and Abbi Abrams, there have been laughs, tears, and seriously dope outfits. Click through to see some of the duo's best fashion moments and check out how to DIY your own Broad City costumes too!
Abbi and Ilana's Windbreakers and Golf Visors in Florida: In their bid to join a senior community in Florida, the two gals decide that their best bet is to play the part. In the aptly named episode "Florida," they don technicolor windbreakers, golf visors, oversized sunnies, and floral neck scarves. Gran, is that you? (Photo via Jon Pack/Comedy Central)
Ilana and "Ilana's" NYC Outfit: In the episode "Co-Op", Abbi dresses up in one of Ilana's signature, provocative getups to cover her shift at Ilana's co-op. Everything about this outfit is iconic — the black mesh crop with "NYC" emblazoned across the chest in bold yellow letters, the teal green sports bra, tie-dyed yoga pants, and blue circle fanny pack.

Ilana's Flirty Look: Ilana's opening look in "Burning Bridges" is the perfect outfit for traipsing through New York City in the summertime. It consists of a figure-hugging striped bodysuit, a flared skater skirt, and a pair of gold booties. Of course, her traipsing would abruptly end in heartache when Lincoln breaks up with her, but damn, she looks good. (Photo via Comedy Central)
Stripey Sweaters: In the episode "Mushrooms," our fave Brooklyn millennials decide to experiment with some, er, organic substances. Before the episode dissolves into psychedelic animated chaos, the duo is sporting complementary stripey sweaters that are on point. And of course, always present is Abbi's red beanie.

Fishnet Crop Top + Overalls: During Ilana's quest to sort out her bedroom issues in Trump's America, we couldn't help but notice that girlfriend's outfit was looking particularly sharp. The ever sex-positive Ilana sports a black fishnet top over a red sports bra. She pairs her daring top with a pair of overalls. (Photo via Comedy Central)
Borrowed Evening Gowns: While the dresses certainly aren't theirs, the ladies look right at home in evening wear. While house-sitting for a rich family, Ilana and Abbi delve into the closet and come out in red-carpet ready gowns — Abbi in a one-shouldered black number and Ilana in a deep-V purple look. Throw in a bidet, and classic Broad City shenanigans ensue. (Photo via Comedy Central)
Ilana's Decked Out Denim and Abbi's Oversized Outerwear: In the season finale of season four, the girls celebrate their "Friendiversary" — okay, Ilana celebrates it and Abbi forgets it. But that aside, their looks are so, so good in this episode. In the heart of winter, Ilana keeps warm in a customized denim jacket that we want to add to our closet NOW. Meanwhile, Abbi's oversized plaid outerwear looks cozy AF. (Photo via Comedy Central)
Wedding Guest Ensembles: In the episode "Destination Wedding," Abbi and Ilana attempt to attend a wedding in Connecticut. Ilana steals her old catering outfit (a suit), and decides it's formal enough for a wedding (it is!), and Abbi bikes through NYC in a maxi dress. Also, let us not remind you how good their hair is in this episode! (Photo via Ali Goldstein/Comedy Central)
Abbi's Blue Dress: Abbi buys a pricey cerulean blue bandage dress and misses the return date. As a result, our girl does what every financially-minded individual does and WEARS IT WHENEVER POSSIBLE (Tiffany Haddish knows what we're talking about). But hey, she looks killer in it. Slay.

Ilana's Backwards Cap and Black Lippie: The pair hit up Bed, Bath & Beyond, AKA BB&B, for Ilana to find a gift for Lincoln and for Abbi to score an AC unit. In the scene where it slowly dawns on Ilana just how much time her bestie spends in the store, she's wearing a sports jersey, black lippie, and reverse ball cap outfit. We're bookmarking this style for warmer weather! (Photo via Comedy Central)
Ilana's Risqué Leotard and Orange Wig: Having come into some money in "Just The Tips," Ilana decides to treat herself to a sexy new leotard and hits up a Facebook party with a new wig. Lo and behold, she sees her ex and his new gf there and promptly soils herself (yep), and then needs Lincoln's help to get her sultry new bodysuit off. But hey, you can't knock the fact that she isn't afraid to take fashion risks. (Photo via John Pack/Comedy Central)
Clinic Escort Vests: Season four of Broad City was jam packed with political statement making sartorial choices. In the opening scene of the episode "Twaining Day" (yas, Shania!), the girls are seen wearing pink clinic escort vests outside a women's reproductive health clinic and Ilana is also wearing a very timely pink pussy hat.

Ilana's DIY Anti-Bedbugs Gear: In a true act of friendship, in the episode "Bedbugs," Abbi takes in Ilana after the latter is left homeless due to a bedbug infestation. The caveat is Ilana has to cover her body, so she fashions a makeshift HazMat suit out of plastic bags. LOL. (Photo via Comedy Central)
