With any period film or television show, the attention to detail in sets and costumes is incredibly important. Good costumes are as important as a good plot because they help build the world and immerse the audience. It’s no surprise that the characters’ styles would be awe-inspiring in a high-budget franchise like Game of Thrones.
Between Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon, several characters have made an impression with their incredible fashion sense. Fans can think of plenty of well-dressed characters in Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon.
10/10 Cersei Lannister Represented Wealth And Elegance In Game Of Thrones
As a member of the House Lannister, the richest family in Westeros, Cersei had some of the best looks in Game of Thrones. Between her dresses, jewelry, and hairstyles, Cersei represented the wealth and elegance of House Lannister with every look.
Cersei often used her house colors, red and gold, in her wardrobe. The palette complemented her complexion and hair color, and the adornments showed off just how powerful and wealthy her family iwas. Her wardrobe was one of the most expensive and most fashionable in Westeros.
9/10 Oberyn Martell Represented Dorne
The Head of House Martell served as Warden of the South, and House Martell was the only family in Westeros outside the royal family who retained their royal titles. As such, it makes sense that Prince Oberyn Martell would be one of the best-dressed people in Westeros.
The culture in Dorne was different from the rest of the kingdoms, as was the climate. These differences were all reflected in Oberyn’s clothing. Through the lighter materials and desert-color palette, Oberyn represented his kingdom and his people well.
8/10 Daenerys Targaryen’s Outfits Reflected Her Rise To Power
It’s only fitting that the Mother of Dragons, Khalessi of the Great Grass Sea, and the Breaker of Chains had an impeccable wardrobe. Daenerys had the most versatile wardrobe of anyone in Game of Thrones. It changed with her from her time with the Dothraki to being Queen of Meereen to conquering Westeros.
The first half of Game of Thrones saw Daenerys embracing the fashions of other cultures. Once she arrived at Dragonstone in Season 7, she embraced Westerosi fashion. Her clothing became more suitable for the Dragon Queen, as she wore dragon scales, her house colors of black and white, and other dragon-featuring accessories.
7/10 Jaime Lannister Exuded Wealth And Power
From his Lannister armor to his regular garb, Jaime’s wardrobe exuded wealth and power. Even as a sworn member of the Kingsguard, Jaime was still a part of the wealthiest family in Westeros. Like Cersei, his clothing often reflected his house colors red and gold, which complemented his coloring and complexion.
Even when Jaime was suited up in armor, either for the Kingsguard or the Lannister army, he still looked impeccable. As a ranking member of House Lannister with a connection to the royal family, being well-dressed and put together was likely expected of Jaime.
6/10 Ellaria Sand’s Outfits Reflected Her Mood
Bastards were treated differently in Dorne, which is likely why Ellaria Sand was a paramour to Prince Oberyn. As a result of this relationship, Ellaria dressed in a manner befitting of a consort, fully embracing the Dornish styles. Her outfits were tasteful, flowy, and brightly colored.
After Oberyn’s death, Ellaria’s clothes changed from bright yellow and orange to black because she was in mourning. Her general style changed as well. As her focus narrowed onto revenge, her outfits turned sharper and sleeker while still maintaining elements of Dorne’s style.
5/10 Tywin Lannister’s Outfits Mirrored His Personality
Tywin was head of House Lannister and was mainly focused on image, power, and legacy. In Game of Thrones, his outfits often reflected his serious, no-nonsense nature. As the richest man in Westeros, he ensured his wealth was obvious in his clothes’ tailoring and materials.
Tywin’s style was nowhere near as extravagant as Cersei’s, nor did he ever really wear his house colors. Considering his serious nature and grim features, the way he dressed matched his character perfectly.
4/10 Sansa Stark Displayed Her Character Growth In Her Wardrobe Choices
Like Daenerys, Sansa’s style changed depending on where she was. Once she was free of the Lannisters and Ramsey and was able to be her own person again, her clothing became almost like armor. She dressed in the Northern style, furs often adorned her neck, and wolf imagery was stitched in the cloth.
While Sansa’s wardrobe grew considerably harsher after returning to the North, it was a perfect reflection of her character’s journey and growth throughout Game of Thrones. Furthermore, it’s far more difficult to be stylish in the winter, but Sansa Stark pulled it off effortlessly.
3/10 Alicent Hightower Made A Statement With Her Dress In House Of The Dragon
As the daughter of the Hand of the King, and then later Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, Alicent Hightower dresses to reflect her status. Her style certainly elevated after becoming queen and her wardrobe stuck out among the other women in House of the Dragon.
Alicent’s style even marked the true start of her and Rhaenyra’s rivalry. The green dress she wore to Rhaenyra’s wedding feast was a startling moment for the feast’s attendees and A Song of Ice and Fire fans. The dress was exquisite and the color referenced House Hightower’s signal of war, allowing Alicent to execute both fashion and function.
2/10 Margaery Tyrell Could Have Influenced Westerosi Fashion
As a member of Westeros’ second-wealthiest family and queen to two different kings, Margaery Tyrell knew how to dress to impress. More than once, Margaery altered her personal style to manipulate people or events. In every scenario, however, her clothes oozed luxury and elegance.
Similarly to Ellaria, Margaery’s dresses were more revealing compared to the other women of Westeros. Along with the ornate detailing on the clothing, Margaery’s wardrobe was an extension of her personality. Margaery would’ve likely had an influence over Westerosi fashion if she lived longer.
1/10 Rhaenyra Targaryen Always Dresses Appropriately
The princess and heir to the Seven Kingdoms has made an impression on House of the Dragon fans, mainly for her bold personality. Fans have also noticed and praised her style. House of the Dragon has shown Rhaenyra in dragonriding gear, covered in blood, and dressed for her wedding feast. Through all of it, her style ranges from subtle to extravagant.
It may seem like a lack of consistency, but it actually shows Rhaenyra’s ability to dress appropriately for different occasions. For example, her simpler outfit during Aegon’s second name day allowed her wedding dress to stand out more.
