Rachel Berry is certainly not afraid of prints, patterns, or color... or any other jarring element you can throw onto an outfit. But every now and then — just when you're about to give up on her sartorially — the girl throws a style curveball. In Episode 1.14, "Hell-O," Rachel hit the stacks in a funky bow-printed sweater and pleated skirt that spoke to her overtly girlish style without going completely overboard. Even if Jesse St. James is faking interest in the budding starlet, we like to think that her minor style breakthrough helped reel him in. Still, we've put a grown-up spin on her outfit by replacing her penny loafers with a pair of leg-lengthening heels.
