As we roll around the sun-soaked streets of Los Angeles in a classic Lincoln town car, it can only mean one thing…The Lincoln Lawyer is back for a second season.
However, between the dark and dangerous world of Mickey Haller’s new found fame, parking garage assaults and new clients charged with murder, is still the vivid and infectious Lorna Crane in her magnetic Lincoln Lawyer wardrobe.
With her working harder than ever to juggle re-enrollment at law school with the firm’s new high-profile case, she navigates the stuffy and drab courtrooms in a rainbow of standout outfits. But Mickey’s second ex-wife, and highly intelligent legal aide, has upped the ante this season, with Lorna’s Lincon Lawyer wardrobe not just bright statement pieces, but instead a masterstroke between powerful, bossy and as cheeky as her personality.
Lorna’s Timeless Tweed Mini-skirt and Blazer in The Lincoln Lawyer
Lorna Crane might have built herself up as the talented legal aide of Los Angeles famed defense attorney Mickey Haller. But just because she’s surrounded by a world of drab formality doesn’t mean, the soon to be lawyer, can’t bring a bit of feminine charm to her outfits. (A bit like Rebecca Welton and her impeccable wardrobe) Especially when costume designer Lindy McMichael decided to play around with adding in suits and tailored separates, like Lorna’s quirky pink tweed blazer and matching mini-skirt set.
Lorna Crane’s Pastel Blazers in Season Two of The Lincoln Lawyer
Even with Lorna’s Lincoln Lawyer wardrobe going through a change, to mirror the more serious role she took on within the courtroom setting of the second season, she didn’t lose any of her quirky style that we have come to love. Or any of the colorful statement looks she is known for.
Instead she has refined her bold and bright outfits, often choosing darker jewel tones of sapphire blue and rich purples. Or in the case of her suit separates chalky pastel shades. That work wonderfully with actress Becki Newton’s blonde curled long hair and tanned complexion.
With the subdued pastel blues, greens and lilacs that she favors, having a softer feel than the colors she chose to wear in season one. And giving her expensive tailored blazers a more polished, and court appropriate appearance that is still at its heart essentially Lorna Crane.
Norma Kamali Blush Pink Fishtail Blazer Dress
It isn’t just her more subtle color choices that keep Lorna’s outfits from not straying into the masculine world of business suits and hard tailoring. Her use of the simple, yet professional and very stylish, blazer dress gives her a more feminine edge. With the fishtail mini-skirt adding some whimsy to the fitted blazer, shoulder pads and cinched in belted waistline.
The Many Print Blouses of Lorna Crane in Season Two of The Lincoln Lawyer
Known as much on the show for her sky-high stiletto pumps as she is for her vivid use of color, Lorna also isn’t afraid to add pattern to her Lincoln Lawyer wardrobe. Mostly in the way of her shirts and blouses.
With an array of patterns, from black and white zebra print to metallic silver dots, Lorna’s simple blouses and shirts add some style magic to even her most formal blazer and skirt suits. And never look out of place worn alongside her italian work bag, or with an arm full of legal files.
While the delicate, and luxurious fabrics keep her selection of shirts and blouses modern and work appropriate, the loose fit emphasizes Lorna’s womanly figure. Paired with simple pencil skirts and tailored trouser suits, Lorna unapologetically dresses for herself.
Bold and Cheeky: Lorna’s Leopard Trench Coat in The Lincoln Lawyer
But Lorna doesn’t just reserve bold prints for her work blouses, especially if this leopard print trench coat is anything to go by. The animal print in a subtle mixture of dark browns might not be as colorful or bright as Lorna’s Lincoln Lawyer wardrobe usually is, however the leopard spots are the perfect feisty representation of her cheeky and fun personality.
Houndstooth Cardigan worn by Becki Newton as Lorna Crane in The Lincoln Lawyer
Although Lorna doesn’t follow trends or keep up to date with the latest looks off the runway, she still has a passion for fashion. One that she shows by sticking to her style aesthetic and choosing clothes that would often be considered in stark contrast to the seriousness of her work. Like a black and white oversized houndstooth print cardigan, that has a modern and stylish feel with its double-breasted front closure.
Lorna Crane’s Season Two Plaid Blazers in The Lincoln Lawyer
With as many blazers as a Saville Row tailor Lorna’s Lincoln Lawyer wardrobe isn’t complete without the fitted, shoulder padded, work appropriate garment. But with her bold color palette and love of statement patterns, Lorna isn’t afraid to add some stand out plaids into the mix too.
The statement pieces, like her black and beige plaid Karl Lagerfeld blazer don’t need anything extra to be show stoppers, with Lorna knowing exactly when to dress the looks up or down. Comfortable enough with her bossy and powerful style and attitude to know she looks just as good in a blazer over a t-shirt and jeans, as she does in the courtroom.
It doesn’t seem like much of a surprise that when Lorna eventually marries Cisco at the courthouse, that instead of wearing a typical wedding dress she opts for something much more her style (reminiscent of Cassie Salazar from Purple Hearts wedding look). The figure hugging, ruched long sleeved Zara mini-dress is quintessentially Lorna and could have been worn on any occasion. Only giving itself away as a wedding dress because of its white color, matching pearl embellished veil and square toed Valentino Garavani pumps.
Mickey Haller might think that The Lincoln Lawyer is all about him, his high-profile cases and the selection of Lincoln cars he does business out of, but really the viewers can’t help but be drawn to Lorna Crane and her impeccable fashion sense. With endless colorful blazers, patterned shirts and statement dresses who can resist Lorna’s Lincoln Lawyer wardrobe.
Heavily accessorized with sky-high stilettos and leather bags, the only thing Lorna is guaranteed to add to her wardrobe more than them, is Winston, her pug.
