Inspired By: Game of Thrones

Based on the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, this HBO show is an epic fantasy chronicling the lives of the men and women who live in Westeros and Essos. It follows three main stories: the war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms between the Starks, Baratheons, and Lannisters; Daenerys Targaryen's ambition to cross the sea to Westeros and reclaim the throne with the help of her dragons; and the rising threat of the supernatural beings called the Others beyond the Wall in the north.
 
The third season of the show returns March 31st! So excited to get back into the all the betrayal, maniputation, sword-fighting, sex, violence, drama, and magic.

*Spoilers Ahead*

Ned Stark, Robb Stark & Jon Snow
Inspired By: Game of Thrones -- Ned, Robb & Jon

Ned Stark (Sean Bean) was the admired Lord of Winterfell. He briefly served as the Hand of the King to Robert Baratheon, but then discovered that Robert's son Joffrey wasn't related to him by blood and was beheaded. Eldest child to Ned and Catelyn, Robb (Richard Madden) is next to be Lord of Winterfell, but after hearing of his father's death declares war and becomes King of the North. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is the bastard son of Ned. He believes in being honorable, and he joins the rank of the Night's Watch, who guard the Wall (which seperates the Seven Kingdoms from the wildings in the north).

To dress like Ned and Robb, wear a faux fur-trim collar coat, gray sweater, jeans, and glitter booties. Rock a shield ring for the swords they carry, or a wolf ring since the direwolf is on their coat of arms. The Night's Watch wear all black, so dress in a moto jacket, spiked sweater, panel leggings, and boots. Wear a bird ring since men of the Night's Watch are called "crows."

Catelyn, Sansa & Arya Stark
Inspired By: Game of Thrones -- Catelyn, Sansa & Arya
Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) is Ned Stark's widowed wife; she is strong and fiercely protective of her children. Sansa (Sophie Turner) is the second oldest child; she is beautiful and selfish and has a crush on Joffrey instantly, but doesn't see what he's truly like until it's too late. Arya (Maisie Williams) is the third child; she's resourceful and wild, and is currently trying to make her way North to her family by pretending to be a boy.

Catelyn and Sansa have a more feminine style; to dress like them wear a floral sweater, flowy chiffon dress, cute wedges, and a ring with wolf ears. Arya has a tomboy-like style; try a hooded leather jacket, brown t-shirt, jeans, and nude booties. Put on a sharp ring since Arya carries a dagger named Needle.

Robert, Stannis & Joffrey Baratheon
Inspired By: Game of Thrones -- Robert, Stannis & Joffrey
Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) was King of the Seven Kingdoms for fifteen years and married to Cersei before being killed after a hunting trip. Stannis (Stephen Dillane) is Robert's younger brother and a harsh man; he claims the throne is his, but Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), Robert's illegitamate son, becomes king. Joffrey is vicious and sadistic. He's the product of incest between Jaime and Cersei, and therefore has no right to the throne, but only a few know this.

At one point, all three men call themselves king, so to dress regally wear a leather-panel blazer, dark blue dress, faux fur collar, strappy wedges, and crown ring. Or instead wear a lace shirt, brocade jeans, cap toe heels, and a floral crown. 

Tyrion & Jaime Lannister & Cersei Baratheon 
Inspired By: Game of Thrones -- Tyrion, Jaime & Cersei
Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), nicknamed the Imp, is a dwarf; he's intelligent and sharp-tongued, but also an outcast because of his stature. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is a skilled knight of the Kingsguard; he is arrogant and impulsive, and he is twins with Cersei (Lena Heady), who is beautiful but manipulative. She is the widowed wife of Robert Baratheon, but all three of her children are fathered by Jaime.

Dress like the Lannister men by wearing a red blouse since it is the color of their House, a sequin vest for the shields they wear, brown jeans, tall boots, and a lion ring since a golden lion is on their coat of arms. Or dress like Cersei by wearing a patterned blazer, red ruffled dress, ankle strap heels, and a lion necklace.

Daenerys Targaryen, Melisandre & Ygritte
Inspired By: Game of Thrones -- Daenerys, Melisandre & Ygritte
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) was in an arranged marriage to Khal Drogo, a Dothraki warlord, but after his death and the birth of her three dragons, she decided it was time to take back the Iron Throne and become Queen of the Seven Kingdoms (since her father ruled before Robert). She is currently on her way to do just that. Melisandre (Carice van Houten) is a priestess of R'hllor and has magical abilities; she serves Stannis and becomes his most trusted advisor. Ygritte (Rose Leslie) is a wilding woman who lives north of the Wall; she is fierce and headstrong and a warrior.

Dress like Daenerys by wearing a green dress, army vest, booties, and dragon jewelry since she not only has dragons, but they are in the Targaryen coat of arms. To look like Melisandre, dress in red since it's the only color a priestess wears; put on a wine-colored shirt, red chiffon skirt, red necklace, and metallic belt. Or to dress like Ygritte, don a white sweater and white jeans for the snow she's surrounded by, beige boots, and rose gold shield ring since she's a warrior.
