Outlander Costumes, Season 1, So Far
What happened, costume-wise, in the first half of series one? What do we have to look forward to this spring?
So far, the series has flashed between Claire’s life in the 1940s with her husband Frank, and the new life she has been forging in the 18th century with Jamie.
In the 1940s, Claire and Frank primarily wore suits:
Once she’s in the 18th century, Claire started with basics — jackets and petticoats in brown wools, with knitted shawls and accessories:
Out on the road with the boys, collecting rents, she got a slightly nicer dress in dark green plaid wool:
Claire also got a very snappy fur-trimmed traveling outfit:
She got to dress up for the Gathering, a formal event in which Clan MacKenzie came together:
And, of course, Clarie got married in a huge silver gown:
Jamie has been in kilts, either rough-and-tumble for work, or dressed up spiffy for the Gathering and the Wedding:
Dougal has had a similar trajectory to Jamie, although he’s less down and dirty (being in charge and all):
Geillis got increasingly weird:
And Black Jack Randall went all uniforms, all the time:
What’s Next in Outlander Costumes?
Well, a lot of the same! Without giving away to many spoilers, Claire and Jamie are going to spend a lot more time on the road and in peril. They will have a brief idyll, but it’s not a fancy one. We’re going to be primarily (or only?) in the 18th century, so little/no sign of Frank or the 1940s.
Geillis is going to get a fancy new dress:
And we’re going to meet new characters Jenny and Ian:
Can’t Wait Till Outlander’s Premiere?
Here are a few things to tide you over. First, this deleted scene further elaborates Jamie and Claire’s wedding night:
And check out these behind-the-scenes clips (the recently released Blu-Ray has more):
And, of course, the Outlander part 2 trailer!
