The (un)official guide to the Amy Pond look

Well, here I am with another one of my weirdo/psycho/obsessive/stalker posts about Amy Pond. And what do I have to say now...?


Haha, I decided to create a quick (*cough*notreally*cough*) guide to Amy Pond's look.

As a crazy Amystalker myself, I look this stuff up all the time. Most of the guides out there suck...majorly. (Although this blog is pretty awesome, despite having not been updated in a long while).

So, while you may end up hating this guide (or you might love it)...I made yeah...


This is awkward. JK, here we go:


(A quick intro)
Amy Pond is the current companion to the eleventh doctor on Doctor Who. She is played by the awesome actor, Karen Gillan. Once, I was re-watching an episode of Doctor Who and I noticed she actually has a..."style". Unlike older companions, like Rose and Martha, Amy's wardrobe is somewhat repetitive with similar items of clothing and accessories. Which isn't a bad thing, in fact it's a good thing. When you think about it, most TV show characters, no matter what nationality, language, or show, never wear the same clothes over again. If you ask me, it's annoying. What real-life person wears completely different clothes every single day? Sure, these characters aren't real people, but if creators wanted them to come off as realistic, they should repeat outfits and clothes.

Now, in all honesty, Amy probably wears completely different outfits in each episode. But they seem similar enough to appear as one wardrobe. As an Amystalker, I find this really cool (can't come up with a better adjective than that XD).

So let's get started...


(See my previous post for a complete Amy Pond "wardrobe")

Let's start with tops. Amy tends to wear V-necks over camis and tanks for a layered look, plaid flannels, and button-downs. The colors tend to range from darker to medium. Rich reds, maroons and dark blues/greens are very dominant as well.

If you haven't yet noticed, throughout much of the sixth series, she wears what seems to be only two different shirts. One is a dark red plaid flannel shirt with the cuffs rolled to the elbows and the other one is a similar red and grey plaid shirt. (I got the feeling this had something to do with her being a [flesh ganger].

On top of all those layered shirts there is normally a jacket or some sort. Usually a brown bomber jacket, a mid-wash denim, or a black leather one. Amy also wears off-white blazers and jackets on occasion as well.


Another common item of clothing Amy typically wears is a skirt. Whether it's cold and snowy or humid and hot, denim miniskirts frequent her outfits as much as those pesky jackets. Black, gray, dark-wash, mid-wash, ripped or otherwise. She often wears them over translucent black tights or brightly colored leggings.

When the Who-niverse/England weather is at it's coldest (Mind you, England is almost always cool), Amy forfeits the miniskirt and tights for light-colored skinnies. Off-white jeggings and skinny khakis are common during this time.


To finish off, I'll talk about scarves.

I hate scarves, Amy loves them. If you ask me, she wears them too much, but then again, she looks great in them. She is often seen wearing her red scarf.

And a closing note: Amy likes red. And layers. And tights. And stuff.

Oh yeah, and Amy is a fictional character (unlike the Doctor, of course (; )so she can't really "like" anything.
