“I used to always say Aria because I really like a lot of Goth kind of, darker stuff,” Troian told PEP. “But actually, most recently, Emily’s been getting the best stuff. ‘Cause she’s been getting really, like a lot of All Saints, a lot of like cool leather jackets and like, sneakers... spikes. So I’ve kind of been into Emily’s style for a while."
Emily’s style is much different from Spence’s classic American style (i.e. blazers, blouses), which Troian says she loves, but can be a bit uncomfortable:
“I don’t really dress up as much as Spencer does...So, I think I’m a much more casual kind of ripped stockings and a punk T-shirt type...But you know, I like to be comfortable and Spencer’s clothes are definitely not comfortable.”
Troian must have loved the downward spiral storyline of Spence this past season - if not for the meatiness of the role (which she totally rocked), then the comfort of the clothing!
Troian said that PLL costume designer Mandi Line called Troian and Chad Lowe (Byron Montgomery) the two hardest people on the show to dress.
“Why she said I was difficult to dress is because she does really value my opinion and she does allow me to say, you know, I like this about this outfit, I don’t like this, can we change this,” Troian told PEP. “So she’s really cool in that we work together for a long time to build Spencer’s outfits.”
