Fictional Guy February Day #26: Eliot Spencer from “Leverage”

There’s something intoxicating about a dangerous man like Eliot Spencer of Leverage. This criminal-turned-Robin-Hood has spent most of his life staying two steps ahead of the law. A skilled fighter and master of hand-to-hand combat, he’s not afraid to get a little blood on his hands, especially if it means protecting his team. However, he’s more than just the muscle. He’s a trained gourmet chef, speaks several languages, and sings and plays guitar. He’s developed gruff and intimidating persona that’s hard to crack, but, once he lets you in, you’re in for the long, crazy ride. The picture above is correct. Eliot really is the perfect compliment to your morning coffee. (Move over bacon!)

They rob from the rich and give to the poor. When you’ve been wronged, the team that makes it right. They always get their man. Oh, did we mention they’re criminals?

Television’s favorite band of Robin Hoods is back! Leverage premiered its fifth season this week on TNT and the team’s never looked better. They actually looked so good that we decided to take a page out of their book and swipe a few of their style secrets.

Here’s five looks inspired by the cast of Leverage. Just click on the link below each image for full product information and be sure to check out Leverage every Sunday at 8/7c only on TNT.

1. Sophie: The Grifter

Beautiful, brilliant and poised, Sophie loves style and beauty almost as much as she loves pulling one over on a mark. She’s can be a little over the top and loves to make a statement when she steps onto the scene. Stand out like Sophie with a sparkly dress, tailored leather jacket and heeled booties. Finish off with with some simple accessories to keep from overpowering your look.

2. Parker: The Thief

A puzzle wrapped inside a mystery wrapped inside an enigma, Parker will keep you on your toes as she steals your wallet. Stick with fitted, well-cut basics and add in unexpected pops of color a la Parker like a red messenger bag and sneakers. Top it off with some french fry lip balm. (Totally Parker!)

3. Eliot: The Hitter

Eliot may be the tough-as-nails muscle, but, underneath that tough exterior, he’s just a down home guy. Tap into Eliot’s rough-and-tumble-meets-cowboy vibe with ripped boot-cut jeans and a fitted flannel shirt. Add some feminine touches with a lace tank, heeled boots and a braided cuff.

4. Hardison: The Hacker

With a quick wit and a computer system that would make any high-tech company jealous, Hardison is the one who provides everything needed to make a con look legit. Hack into his style code by pairing a cropped army jacket with a bright logo tee-the Crush one below pays homage to his love of orange soda-and jeans. Finish off with a bright, trendy watch and a scarf like he often wears on the show.

5. Nate: The Brains

Every good scheme needs a great plan, and, when it comes to plans, Nate is the go-to-guy. He’s slick, smart and hardly ever seen out of his signature suit. Try our female version with a golden button-down, black pencil skirt and chic vest. Don’t forget the tie!
