One of the easiest places to get style advice is from TV.
After all, these are well-paid actresses who often have a team of stylists to consult with, which means their looks will be impeccable. While much of the style is manufactured to convey a specific look or vibe for the show, any woman can draw inspiration from these well-dressed ladies of television.
Here are five of the best dressed women on TV, as well as suggestions for how to emulate their styles:

From wearing flats at home to rocking a black and gold brocade cocktail dress, Betty covers the range perfectly from casual to chic. You can find her looks in stores such as Banana Republic, which are now bringing a bit of '60s flair into their collections.
