Faking It

Whoa. That Faking It finale, you guys? I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to live my life until next season? Oh, yeah, big news—Faking It was picked up for a second season! All our faves will be back (yay!) but considering everything that went down on last night's episode, there is bound to be some major ~dramz~. But let's skip chatting about heartbreak and focus on fashion because, well, it's not as traumatizing. And, TBH, wedding fashion > all other fashion.

Karma wore a short-sleeve green dress with a netted cutout along the neckline. This is how to do cutouts, people. Also, her hair color + that dress color = perfection. We've seen Karma in a lot of dresses this season, but never anything so simple and solid-color. It totally fits her, IMHO!

While we've directed much of our fashion focus to Faking It's two lead female characters, today we're switching gears. You can't have a character like Shane in front of your eyeballs every week and not talk about him. Dude can wear prints like no one's business and his wardrobe in last night's episode is total proof of that.

First up is his graphic button-up—it's got diamonds, unfinished triangles, arrows, and stripes. That's a whole lotta pattern for one short-sleeved shirt, but Shane obviously pulls it off like NBD. I never knew a shirt could be so multi-patterned, but now I do and I like it. A lot.

While on last week's Faking It we noticed some unintentional denim matching going on between Amy and Karma, last night's episode was full of purposeful khaki coordination.

If you can cast your mind back to last week's episode, you may recall that it closed with Karma offering Liam a, um, proposition. In order to feel comfortable with their decision, Amy and Karma decide they need to dress the part.

The perfect threesome wardrobe, of course, is a khaki trench coat. Amy opts for one with black piping while Karma goes more classic with a double-breasted version. Shout-out to Amy's meteorologist mom, BTW, who has many trench coats—this big reveal wouldn't have been possible without you.

On Faking It, Karma and Amy have been friends forever, but their personal styles are totally different—Karma is into boho feminine looks, while Amy prefers more casual and slightly masculine outfits. Despite their differing styles, the two ladies came together (in style) on last night's episode. Maybe fake dating is having consequences beyond popularity? Based on the double denim both wore last night, it's looking that way.

Karma maintained her ~flowy~ style with a denim moto jacket and paisley shirt. While last week we were admiring her crown braid, this week we're really feeling both her and Amy's loose waves. Normally we're anti couples that match too heavily, but these two look so good that we forgive 'em. Amy, on the other hand, has on a white denim and gray hoodie combo—while it's not overtly masculine, it's definitely tougher-looking than Karma's moto and paisely combo.

While last week on Faking It we were obsessed with Amy's jeans, suspenders, and fisherman sweater, this week we turn our attention to Karma. Even if you didn't know her name—or that her parents operate a juice truck—you would totally be able to tell that she was raised by hippies. While Amy's style is a bit more casual and masculine, Karma's is flowy and feminine. Last night's outfit is the epitome of her overall aesthetic, IMHO.

Karma has a knack for mixing colors and textures together. She's wearing a distressed denim jacket, a cotton dress, a leather belt, and a woven tote. Between where her belt is cinched and where her jacket falls, she's got her proportions on point.

Last week when we spoke to Faking It's costume designer Mandi Lane, she gave us a ~tip~ to keep an eye out for the cream sweater that Amy wears in the show's third episode. That episode was last night and—OMG—what a sweater—nay, outfit it was. The essential elements are an Irish fisherman sweater, a pair of loose and distressed jeans, and—the clincher—suspenders. Even though it's almost warm in New York, I'm desperate to cop this look and wear it immediately. It is 100%, as Mandi described it, "effortlessly cool."

In case you haven't been keeping up with Faking It, let me just tell you, you're missing out. (The good news is: There have only been two episodes so far, so you can catch up in under an hour.) One of our favorite elements from the show is (duh) the wardrobe—we can imagine students actually wearing these clothes IRL, and you get a great sense of each character's personality through their outfits. We talked to Mandi Line, the show's costume designer, about the characters' styles, dressing high school students, and how styling Faking It is different from Pretty Little Liars (yep, she's responsible for the clothes on that show, too).

MTV STYLE: How would you describe Amy and Karma's wardrobes? How do their styles differ?

MANDI LINE: Karma (Katie Stevens) is modern, flirty, and boho. She comes from a hippie background, so she wears eclectic pieces, but she also wants to be popular, so she pairs them with modern pieces for an overall feminine feel.

MTV's new series Faking It debuted last night and—guess what?—it's really good! A new show means new characters to meet and, more important, more wardrobes to discuss. As with many MTV shows (see: Teen Wolf), the fashion choices seem totally appropriate for high schoolers, and we are very excited to see what Karma, Amy, Shane, and Liam wear in the rest of the episodes.

I'm getting ahead of myself, though—let's talk about the pilot's most fashionable moments.

We knew we'd like this show when it opened with a shot from within a closet. Hi, we like closets and the things that go in them. Karma (Katie Stevens), one of the two lead characters, then asks her best friend/fake girlfriend, Amy (Rita Volk), how blind people get dressed, which is never really resolved.

It's one thing for an individual star to look good for award show appearances. They just have to go shopping, match their outfit to their manicure, and they're pretty much good to go. But for a TV show's entire cast to look good? Now THAT is a rare occurrence that takes major styling talent and coordination. We were lucky enough to witness such red carpet wonderment on several occasions at last night's MTV Movie Awards. The cast members of our very own MTV shows managed to look great alone AND as groups, and we humbly offer up our admiration. Check out some of the most fashionable lineups, below:

We've come to expect only the best fashion when it comes to our Teen Wolf stars. Don't worry—they all delivered last night. Tyler Posey, one of MTV's pre-show hosts, looked appropriately casual in jeans and a fitted jacket. Dylan O'Brien went with jeans and a jacket as well, only his black and dark gray color palette gave off a much more ~bad boy~ vibe.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
