16 Trendy Looks Inspired by OITNB’s Taylor Schilling
That’s right, folks. Orange Is the New Black is finally back. Though it has been a long and grueling wait, we’ve definitely enjoyed spending these last few months admiring the keen fashion sense of our girl Taylor Schilling (the brilliant actress who plays Piper Chapman). She may be stuck in orange and tan on-screen, but off-screen, Taylor basically rocks every single color of the rainbow. And guess what? We’ve rounded up 16 ways for you to look just as amazing as she does.
1. Change With the Clock Dress ($55): While we’re all about the caplet attached to Taylor’s dress, we’d be willing to settle for one in the same shade of regal burgundy sans the embellishment.
2. River Island Art Print Skirt ($32): Taylor’s style is classy and sophisticated, but she knows when to mix in a little fun. This paint splatter look is top notch.
3. Glamorous Skater Dress with Lace Top ($46): You can do no wrong in a LBD.
4. ASOS Knitted Dress with Lace Inserts ($77): Peekaboo! Inserts are a great way to add little accents to otherwise straightforward looks.
5. Macey Floral Print Shift Dress ($32): We really wish Taylor hadn’t covered up that dress with a coat because it’s absolutely gorgeous. We chose this Macey Floral dress because of its bright color and enlarged floral print.
6. La Perla Camelia Long Romper ($158): Jumpsuit? Check!
7. Peter Pilotto for Target Dress ($16): We were so excited when Peter Pilotto decided to launch a line with Target, and you can see why. Taylor’s dress is no longer in stock, but you’d still look amazing in this red one.
8. Arrogant Cat Embellished Shift Dress ($72): White dresses are always super classy and display simplicity at its best.
9. Zara Floral Dress With Buttons ($60): Black piping around the collar and armholes really brings out a floral print. You can rock this dress on its own or layer a sleek skirt on top of it to achieve Taylor’s look.
10. Billow and Bloom Dress in Leaf ($125): This girl really loves her lace! While our pick may not be a cami dress, it certainly has the same billowy feel and grass green hue.
11. TFNC Cami Dress With Sequin Skirt ($86): We’re all for a blinged-out dress, but full-fledge sequin is a little too jazzy for most occasions. This TFNC option is the perfect combination of silky white and silver sequined material.
12. Monki Sleeveless Body-Conscious Dress ($29): Coral is always a hot color come summertime. If you’re going to rock the hue, go with a versatile dress that can be dressed up with pumps or worn to the beach with flipflops.
13. ASOS Lace Cami Midi Dress ($38): Lace, yet again! But this time we’re mixing it up. An area of see-through lace around the knees adds a whole lot of sex appeal to any look.
15. Religion T-Shirt Dress With Plaid Skull Print ($77): Skulls on your dress? Sure, why not? Weather you’re going to a festival or just kicking it edgy, you can totally pull off the cranial vibe.
16. DailyLook Zip Collar Mini Dress ($30): And finally, a reminder that even basic hardware like zippers can add interest to a dress.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
