What is it about the autumn season that has us all running back to a show that first aired 23 years ago? From the teenagers of the 2000s to current college students, the show Gilmore Girls has long since established itself as a definite autumn classic.
Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the dramedy follows the daily lives of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, a mother and daughter duo nestled in the fictional small town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. The show, debuting in October 2000, gifted viewers seven seasons of witty one-liners, wholesome relationships and iconic fashion. Each episode displays quirky yet real-world problems that the duo encounters, which allows for the audience to take a seat at Luke’s Diner and get to know the girls.
The pilot episode of the show features a normal segment in the life of Rory and Lorelai. With leaves falling and hot coffee in hand, the girls are bundled in the required “autumn in Connecticut” attire. Specifically, viewers have spent the past 23 years searching for their own match to the iconic Rory Gilmore white sweater. This oversized white cable knit serves as the ultimate cute and cozy item for a light fall chill.
Aside from the timeless and personality driven fashion of the show, its nostalgic aura always has people coming back for more. In the approach to colder months, many of us are overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Geared up with so many traditions and memories, the fall season has a comforting feeling like no other. From the grainy look of the show to the vibrant leaves of the town square, we are brought back to the nostalgic times we yearn for.
