Robin Scherbatsky’s got style, eh! Part 2.


Robin Scherbatsky (played by Cobie Smuldersfrom How I Met Your Mother is just a regular woman like the rest of us. Trying to make it in the business world, has her share of heartaches, and tries to show she is tough when all she does is care. Although a true Canadian through and through, living in NYC she has adapated a great sense of style and honestly, I wish I had her wardrobe. Time to continue at riffling through Robin’s fantastic closet.


This green and black dress  and black high boots is the perfect look for Fall. It’s work appropriate but is still great for a night out for supper. You can even add thin black stockings to give it a more Fall/Winter look.


Animal print can be seen everywhere lately and this is a great exmaple of an animal print dress that doesn’t look like something Snooki from the Jersey Shore would wear. It’s classy and elegant and the deep colors make the animal print stand out just enough. The strappy sandal goes along with the femininity of the dress.


I absolutely love how this look turned out. The white shirt from under with the unique neck detailing, and the light grey blazer is soft yet so professional all at once.


With Fall right around the corner I am already keeping my eyes peeled for a great jacket. This is something I would love to own. A leather jacket with sheep fur on the inside. It is warm and very stylish. Gives your outfits an edgier look without going the biker leather jacket route.


The color of her boots is something we rarely see. Usually all you see is the typical black and brown, but these burgundy boots are making me rethink my Fall boot choices. The whole look is adorable and can be worn for many different occasions. These pattern blouses are always handy and will never go out of style!


This is one of my favorite Robin looks. It is relatively simple, but I love the colorblocking done for this ensemble. The simple white and black combo is broken with these vibrant blue capris. And the pointy black stilettos make the entire look very modern.


Leather, is there anything better? (I attempted to rhyme just now). A shirt that combines  leather and fabric is a great way to introduce leather into your outfit without the classic leather pants (which not everyone can pull off-very few in fact). Black on black is one of my favorite looks because it allows you to play up yout makeup and accessories.


As I mentioned animal print is all the rage and Robin’s snakeskin blouse is really nice. Makes a typical work outfit not at all boring, and the matching color palette of the bag is a nice touch to tie in the whole look together.  


What is so great about this dress is, well, everything. This drop dead gorgeous red gown with a plunging neckline is unforgettable and the black coat with fur colar is the perfect addition for a chilly New York evening.

How I Met Your Mother is a great show that is filled with laughter and love. Robin’s great sense of style is just a bonus to every episode. It is hard to choose which look of Robin’s is the best, but I think any fan would agree that Robin Sparkle’s outfits were the winners. Now that we’ve gone through Robin’s wardrobe, let’s go to the mall (as Miss.Sparkle would say)!



Robin Scherbatsky’s got style, eh!


I am Canadian and I am damn proud of it! Robin Scherbatsky (played by Cobie Smulders) from How I Met Your Mother is a Canadian as well and is very proud of her roots, although Barney Stinson (played by Neil Patrick Harris) gives her a hard time about it. Robin is a journalist trying to make it as a newsanchor over the seasons, and her strong, stubborn and tough exterior is adored by many because we all know deep down inside she’s just a sappy girl.

She’s a great role model to girls and along with all her positive characteristics, she’s also got great style! From business casual to fancy occasions, her look is geared towards the comfortable looking fitted clothing, that isn’t too provocative but always sophisticated. She avoids too much clutter like a lot of jewerly, and she makes sure to keep her colors and pattern combinations to a minimal. Over the last 9 seasons she’s kept true to herself and has always maintained a simple style.Time to take a view at Ms.Scherbatsky’s wardrobe and see what she can teach us!


Robin being the working woman as she is, knows that blazers are the best way to balance out a nice modern outfit, with the professional wardrobe she needs to have. She is often spotted wearing a blazer and it always gives off a very put together look. Being a huge fan of blazers myself, it is one of the best investments you can make. And I’m not talking about your grandmother’s old church-going blazer. I am referring to a nice, well fitted, modern blazer. They can be worn for many different outfits and always spruce up your look (if you replace your cardigan by a blazer, your outfit immediately goes from cute to stylish). This soft look of Robin’s consists of a beige very angled blazer with a nice white shirt from under with a sweet necklaine detailing.


This purple cap sleeve fitted dress is very flattering and the bold black zipper detailing on the back adds a funky spin to it. I love her thin gold chain necklace. Comes to show just because you have a wide open neckline doesn’t mean you need to add a big necklace. Sometimes keeping the chest bare is sexier and more feminine.


For those who think blazers are only for work, here is proof that a blazer can and should be worn on a night out! This blazer look is evening appropriate with the sexy black lace shirt from under and the black blazer adds the dark mysteriousness to it all. 


Patterns are all the craze as of late and in this scene Robin takes the nautical theme to work! Her navy anchor blouse paired with grey pants is a great work outfit, while keeping it fun.


A little black dress doesn’t have to be boring! This sheer top and sweetheart cut dress is great for many different occasions. As Robin did, important to remember to not add a necklace to this type of neckline.   


Another great example of how a blazer can be fun. I love the matching color of burgandy shirt to burgandy blazer. The pattern of the shirt breaks up the look without adding another color. 


This is one of my all-time favorite Robin dresses. This stunning low-v olive dress with black belt is absolutely beautiful. The color alone I find to be one of the most universally flattering colors. Brunettes, blondes and redheads, as well as light and dark skinned can be seen wearing this color and it would look nothing but spectacular on them. I also love the draped detailing on the lower half of the dress.     robin-stripes


Lastly, if you are a fan of the show, you may notice a common theme in Robin’s wardrobe: she loves stripes (as do I)! This character is often seen in stripes when she is dressed more casually. From thicker to thinner stripes, she’s sported them all and shows how versatile this pattern can be. If you want to learn more about the endless options of this pattern take a look at my post “Color me Striped”.

Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post where we keep on rummaging through Robin’s wardrobe! We’ve already seen she has worn it all, even this bikini bod t-shirt. Ted couldn’t keep his eyes off of her!
