Game of Thrones Season Four starts tonight on Sky Atlantic – and whilst we love the drama, the fighting, and well, the naughty bits, what about Game of Thrones style?
You might already have seen it if you stayed up til 2am this morning, to watch it in synch with the USA – so you may already have seen the latest Game of Thrones style from lead female characters like Daenerys, Cersi, Sansa and more.
But what is Game of Thrones style? Is there such a thing? Well, it’s sort of fantasy-medieval, but it is translatable to everyday or night-out wear. Think long, sweeping gowns, opulent jewels. gold, jewel hues, and bright bold colours as well as pale pastels.
Let’s start of with Daenerys, who has favoured various Game of Thrones style changes as her story has unfolded over the last three seasons. Think gold, and pale, draped, almost Romanesque or Grecian-style gowns.

Little Arya Stark, tomboy, fighter, and the youngest daughter of the late Eddard and Catelyn Stark. Her Game of Thrones style is that of a fighter, a soldier, a, well… a boy.
