Wearing White to a Wedding When There\'s No Bride
The Best Street Style From Copenhagen Fashion Week
Sansa Stark\'s style has changed as much as she has over the years—which is to say a
. Here\'s how Sansa\'s style has changed and what these looks really ~mean~.
When we first meet Sansa Stark, she\'s dressed in blues and furs—a classic Northern lady, which is exactly what she was.
When it\'s time to get some face time with her (planned) future mother-in-law, Cersei, Sansa goes all out. She wears her best clothes, ruffles and all. This instance of trying just a little too hard is classic Early Sansa. She was the girly girl who was ready to do anything to move up in station (and south in geography).
As Sansa begins her journey away from her home in the North, her style becomes more Southern, but her color palette doesn\'t. This is a girl who is true to her roots, no matter how eager she thinks she is to move on.
Sansa\'s high necklines and bunches of ruffles look out of place with a sunny backdrop. She might have been ready to move on, but she still sticks out as an outsider. She\'ll have to really learn to blend in if she wants to survive (~foreshadowing~).
It\'s not long before Sansa is embracing the style and color palate of King\'s Landing, but let\'s not ignore that rose-embroidered neckline, which might just have foreshadowed the protective role the Tyrells would play in Sansa\'s life after her father (Ned, sitting on the right) died.
When things start to get dire for Sansa and her family, her fashion starts to reflect her desire to hide. The loose-fitting gowns and giant sleeves that seem to swallow her up are all in line with Sansa\'s desire to become invisible at court.
Even in mourning, Sansa doesn\'t wear black. In fact, she goes the complete opposite, wearing a cheery, rosie pink. This is the first sign that Sansa knows she has to hide her true feelings if she wants to survive under Joffrey\'s rule.
By Season 2, Sansa was wearing the same style, but subtly inching back toward the greys and blues she wore when she lived at Winterfell—maybe this was her silent way of saying she was still a Stark, no matter how much she pretended to want to be a
Season 2 also sees the beginning of Sansa\'s physical abuse, along with the escalation of her emotional abuse. In one memorably horrible moment, she\'s beaten and her clothes are ripped from her body in court. If Sansa\'s clothes have been her armor and her way to hide, this moment proves the hiding won\'t be enough. She\'ll have to learn to play the game.
When Sansa gets her period for the first time, she\'s wearing the same pale blue she favored in Winterfell—a color we won\'t see her wear again. Goodbye, childhood.
