On this week’s Shadowhunters, Clary jumped through a seelie portal in order to find Valentine, and she ended up in alternate universe where shadowhunters didn’t exist, Izzy was a nerd, Alec was cool, and Jace was a barista. Meanwhile, in the real world, Izzy was arrested for treason, driving Alec to take some seriously dangerous risks in order to save her.
The alternate reality concept allows the show’s wardrobe department to really play with characters’ outfits in this episode.They utilize pops of color, soft fabrics and flawy cuts to create a world that sharply contrasts with all the leather, skintight pieces, and heavy dark colors we’ve come to expect from Shadowhunters. The result is a reimagining of our favorite characters and
Here are the must-have looks you need to have in your closet from this week’s episode.
Desperate to do follow any lead that will help her locate Valentine, Clary leaps head first into a portal taking on her very first solo mission as a shadowhunter. She’s ready to get down to business in outfit that won’t slow her down. Get her take on the shadowhunter uniform by pairing a v-neck tee in a rich oxblood with a pair of black skinny jeans and a sexy leather jacket. Complete your look with some studded black booties, a purple crystal necklace, a studded leather wrap bracelet, and a practical yet stylish messenger bag.
When Clary lands on the other side of the portal, she’s transported into a world where her parents are together, Jace is her steady boyfriend, and demons no longer pose a threat to humanity. She also gets back a version of her pre-shadowhunter closet. Get this little throwback to Clary’s past life by pairing a flowy striped tank with grey jeans and distressed grey booties. Finish it off with a collection of multicolored bangles and a purple crystal necklace.
While in the portal-verse, Clary’s mission gets a little sidetracked when she’s thrust into an over-the-top Alice in Wonderland themed gala planned by alternate universe Alec. With Jace on her arm, she steps out in style that’s more her old self than her current one. To get her party look, pair a vintage-inspired dressing a pretty purple with a pair of lacy black embellished pumps. A purple crystal pendant, a set of thin gold bangles, and a collection of dainty gold rings add the final touch to this simply sweet look.
Isabelle may be a prisoner of the Clave, but that doesn’t mean our girl is going down without a fight or looking like a hot mess. She’s still looking fierce despite being confined. Recreate Izzy too-cool-to-care look by combining a sexy black peplum top with black skinny jeans and knee-high black heeled boots. A geometric cocktail ring adds some edge. Of course, this wouldn’t be complete without her signature snake bracelet and ruby red crystal pendant.
When Clary meets alternate universe Izzy, she barely recognizes her. Not that you can blame her. Unlike the sexy and confident girl in the real world, this version of Izzy is just your regular laid-back shy girl who wears glasses and shares earbuds with her boyfriend. Get her geek-chic style by pairing a some basic blue jeans and a graphic tee, like the Star Wars one she wore in the episode, with a pair of brown lace-up boots. Finish your look with an assortment of string and wrap bracelets on your arm and a flannel shirt tied around your waist.
Izzy is always the life of the party, but, in portal world, her usual party look gets a major overhaul. She’s traded in her usual something black and leather that shows more skin than it covers something soft and sweet. Get her portal party look with an classically cut embellished dress in a beautiful blue hue. A pair of glittery silver heels and a rhinestone studded headband add some sparkle while simple silver bangles and chandelier earrings with a hint of blue tie everything together.
