For those of us of a certain age, Rachel Green was our style icon. The Friends character consistently was the best dressed of the cast and there were so many outfits of Rachel’s that we loved and wanted for ourselves.
While Rachel’s style was very much anchored in the 90s, as the decades rolled by, her fashion choices have stood the test of time with one dress, in particular, being as desirable now as it was back then.
Rachel wore a mint green dress during an episode titled ‘The One Where no One’s Ready’ in season 3, and if you’ve seen the episode you’ll know exactly the ensemble we are talking about.
Rachel spends the entire episode deciding what to wear and when she finally does make her entrance in the show-stopping dress, she doesn’t disappoint.
The mint green maxi dress has a side-split, thick straps, a square neckline and Rachel leaves boyfriend Ross speechless when she walks from the bedroom in this sophisticated, stylish number.
It’s safe to say that we have spent decades trying to find that same dress but to no avail – until now that is.
High-street retailer Whistles have launched an identical dress to Rachel’s in their bridesmaid range, but the dress would work for any occasion where you want to impress.
Whistles official website describes it as: “Elegant and minimal, this maxi dress is perfect for modern bridesmaids.
“Fashioned in an uplifting mint shade, the design features a square neck with a cross-strap back, whilst the silhouette is fitted at the bust through to the waist and hip, and straight to the hem with an intriguing side split at the left-hand side.”
The dress costs €259 and you can get it on the Whistles website, but if you want to get your hands on one you will need to be quick as they are selling fast.
