A Sneak Peek At ‘Glee’ Season 3 Fashion

The new season of Glee premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 20, and yet it still seems light-years away. Alas, while we wait Gleek-fully in anticipation, here are some new official photos to tide us over! In terms of the returning cast members, nothing looks too out of the ordinary in these new Fox promo shots other than there’s some colorful fashion going on up in ol’ William McKinley High; in fact, we’d say the members of New Directions (as well as the Dalton Academy Warblers, thanks to new full-time cast member Darren Criss) are feeling the stripe and polka dot trends pretty hard-core. With the cast set to co-host Fashion’s Night Out during New York Fashion Week with—c’mon—VOGUE, we’re assuming we might be seeing even more fashion on the hit show.

It appears as if Rachel Berry is taking a cue from her real-life counterpart, Lea Michele, and adopting a more fash-friendly persona (cue blunt bangs). We’re loving this multicolored striped dress that is both preppy and trend-savvy. Also, hittin’ the trend-o-meter is Jenna Ushkowitz in a bold black and white polka dot dress accented in blue (very Marc Jacobs Fall 2011).

Dianna Agron has been all over the paparazzi radar this summer with her full-on style evolution being documented week-by-week, right down to a flirtation with pink hair. Her character, Quinn, looks both demure and studious in this white sundress with black straps. The only thing edging this ensemble out is her still-amazing razored bob, but the dress is super cute and would look fall-friendly topped with a thin belt and cropped black blazer. Kevin McHale (aka Artie Of Our Hearts) is the self-professed fashion hound of the Glee group, as evidenced in a recent Vogue article. We like his black glasses with an ’80s-esque striped sweater and buttoned-up white shirt (collars are HUGE for fall), but we love his attitude even more.

Aside from Darren Criss’ new full-time status (how on earth does he continue to make tailored uniform style look so dang good?!), there will be other new cast members this season to shake up the Glee style landscape. The TWO winners of the summer reality contest The Glee Project, an Irish foreign exchange student (might we be seeing more green in the wardrobe palette?) as well as an indie rock kid with dreads (expect skinny jeans galore), will be joining the cast for seven episodes. Also? Mercedes—played by singing sensation Amber Riley, looking lovely in a purple circle dress accented by dual watches around her wrist—will be getting a BF (FINALLY!) in the form of Friday Night Lights vet, Lamarcus Tinker, who could very well start a new sweater vest trend, judging by his IMDB page. Guess we’ll have to tune in, Gleek out, and see!
