Do you ever flip on your favorite TV show and find yourself coveting the wardrobe of the well-dressed woman glowing on the screen? Taking a page from the style book of a TV personality is a fun way to mix up your look. For inspiration, we examined five style icons on some of the most popular reality and talk shows and zeroed in on their signature silhouettes and accessories.

This HGTV darling not only has the whole country itching to road trip to Waco, Texas and decorate their houses with shiplap, but she also has that effortless, casual-cool look down to an art.
Key pieces: Military jacket, chambray shirt, skinny jeans, empire-waisted dress, breezy tunic top
Finishing touches: Center-parted hair, hoop earrings, trucker hat, leather belt and boots
Raven Symone from “The View”
This child star-turned-talk show co-host has a strong voice as one of the leading ladies of “The View,” and she always rocks a bold look to match.

The host of PR’s most recent season has such an eclectic sense of style, you never know what look she might channel next: edgy, funky, romantic, bombshell … the options go on.
Key pieces: Structured jacket, pencil skirt, leather pants
Finishing touches: Bouffant updo, sky-high heels, statement earrings

With or without Michael Strahan by her side, this morning show host (and long-time soap opera star) always looks polished and professional.
