If you’re looking for a TV show that will make you laugh, and then make you cry (not necessarily in that order), Shameless (2011-2021) is a fantastic choice. This American TV series follows the Gallaghers, a family dealing with alcoholism, mental issues, poverty and many more problems.

If you want to get to know Fiona before we start talking about her outfits, we suggest you take a look at this fan-made edit that describes Fiona Gallagher from Shameless perfectly.

How to Create the Messy Fiona Gallagher Outfits

Fiona Monica Gallagher, portrayed by Emmy Rossum, is a character with many troublesome duties. Due to both physical and mental absence of her parents, Fiona has to take care of all her siblings. As if this wasn’t hard enough already, she also has to patch her family up whenever they run into issues with the law. She does look like someone you wouldn’t want to mess with, right?

Her fashion style might not look interesting to some, while to others it represents a great story. She often wears hand-me-downs or ripped and tomboyish clothes in muted colors, which immediately lets us know that Fiona does not have too much time to take care of her own life. None of the Fiona Gallagher outfits are really well thought through, and she rarely looks well put together – it’s just the reality of the life she’s living.

Fiona Gallagher outfits often look very monotone, but Fiona’s character is everything but monotone. The rushed fashion is ripped at every edge, but Fiona’s beautiful face shines through. Showtime.

If you want to represent her style, go for clothes which show no signs of femininity. She likes the colors black, gray, olive, navy, and sometimes beige – just don’t be too cheery, that’s all.

Fiona Gallagher Is A Natural & Messy Beauty

We are all aware that one cannot just take care of everything all of the time without having some fun occasionally, right? Sadly, Fiona often chooses to have fun by engaging in promiscuous encounters, alcoholism, and sometimes even opiates consummation. However, Fiona is resourceful, and she’s learned to use her beautiful olive skin, and her symmetrical face to sometimes get what she wants.

We’d say the most memorable part of her look is her luscious hair. She most often wears it down or in a medium-high ponytail with a few loose strands in the front. It’s interesting how, although it’s sometimes all knotted up, her hair seems to be her signature trait – it’s untamed and messy, just like she is. Fiona almost never wears any make-up, since she has very little time to engage in self-care.

Accessories Inspired by Fiona Gallagher from Shameless

Although at first you might think that Fiona barely wears any accessories, it’s also very important to look really closely into her growth. As she gets her life together piece by piece, she starts wearing her famous small hoops. Besides them, she never wears any jewelry or accessories, so we think this is a really great addition by the costume designers.

She is wearing a small, black crossbody bag, and bringing along a dark blue suitcase. Of course, since she’s on the go, she has to layer her outfit well so she also has a navy-colored, military-inspired jacket. Most Fiona Gallagher outfits are like this – practical, monotone, and just plain. This is why we love her! She is real, she is authentic, and she is messy.
