On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a black dress with an asymmetric neckline. Anyone think her resemblance to Mary Todd Lincoln is uncanny? Think about it, Nikki is Genoa City's "First Lady" given her status as President Victor's main squeeze and she was also married to Jack, a man who was shot. It is no secret Nikki has loved both Jack and Victor, bitter business rivals while Mary was courted by Abe as well as Stephan Douglas, who eventually became political rivals. (Lincoln-Douglas debates, anyone?) Lastly, Lincoln's wife is said to have suffered from severe mood swings which just so happen to resemble Nikki's behavior as of late; she seems to go from sobbing uncontrollably over the ranch to happily announcing her engagement to cattily attacking Sharon all in a matter of minutes. Here's to hoping she'll paint the Newman Ranch white once the renovations get underway.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chloe wears a leather trim blouse. Anyone think her having a female friend is like the Breaking Amish pioneers going to New York? Both are venturing into uncharted territory but if things go sour for Chloe, at least she'll only be shunned by Chelsea. While the Amish group allegedly discovers the wonders of technology, the two new friends are busy figuring out a way to save Tag and Grab before it crashes. Better a company that burns than a group of people who choose to live life differently from how they were raised, right?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a burgundy leather jacket and an ombre scarf. Right about now, Chelsea is like a person reading Gone Girl- engrossed, confused, and trying to put all the pieces together. Of course, Chelsea is trying to decipher Adam's lies from truths and track his whereabouts while the engrossed reader is trying to figure out if the protagonist Nick killed his wife Amy. Perhaps it's time for Adam's new wife to scavenge for clues. She is sure to raise an eyebrow at what she finds just as the surprised reader can't turn the pages fast enough to see how the thrilling tale concludes.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a gray drape open back sweater. As she wanders around the cabin thinking she's losing her mind, one can't help but hope for a Cabin in the Woods twist of sorts. Although Sharon may feel alone and quite isolated, fingers crossed for the sake of her killer sweater that she is under some sort of observation. Too bad like most horror movie stereotypes, it looks like she will learn too late that it is never really safe to go to a cabin in the middle of the woods, now is it?
Many thanks to the show's wardrobe department for informing me that her sweater is by All Saints and that Sharon is actually wearing it backwards. How's that for a twist? Unfortunately, I haven't been able to track down the exact sweater but here is a similar one.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a houndstooth jacket. Remember that time Miss Clavel had to rush little Madeline to the hospital in the middle of the night to get her appendix taken out? Phyllis, although no longer sharing the littlest orphan's hair color, may have to do the same with Jack if he doesn't get the surgery soon because it is clear that "something is not right." Who knows, maybe even his enemy Victor will visit him while he's recovery since Madeline's pesky neighbor Pepito even payed her a visit. Victor and Jack may never "break bread" together but hopefully they will reach a point where they can at least be civil.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a colorblock dress. As she worries about working with her husband, he reassures her they can work together because love conquers all. Given that the couple has not only overcome cancer, infertility, and Cane's "death" but are also raising twins and dealing with Genevieve's antics on a daily basis, Lily finally realizes she should take the job. It will be nice to see her trade in those mom jeans and applique mom jeans vest (not literally, thank goodness) for some business attire.
Thanks to reader Neelam for ID'ing this dress! She also shared the dress runs small so keep that in mind when ordering.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a black sweetheart dress. Too bad a sweetheart is exactly what she's being during this difficult time, channeling her innocent little Charlie Bucket self she never knew she had. It is time for Chelsea to stop thinking all the inconsistencies are her "Pure Imagination" and realize life with her new husband Adam isn't all sweet. Sure, he can sugarcoat his lies until he turns a nice shade of Violet Beauregarde but ending the marriage may just be her golden ticket to happiness.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a teal dress with an open back. As she unknowingly jousts with the other only member of Adam's fan club for his attention, she is left rather dejected. Chelsea needs her husband now more than ever but it just so happens that so does Sharon. Adam rides off into the sunset to be Sharon's knight in shining armor, which is ironically something he once told the blond she didn't need in her life. Especially every time Nick tried to play the role. In this tale, only time will tell who will eventually win Adam's affections.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a sweater. After surveying the Newman Ranch that she burned to the ground, it's quite obvious she decided to fight fire with fire. Literally. Sharon extinguishes all dreams of independence and revenge as she realizes the extent of her actions. Yes, the Newmans have burned her in the past but when they learn it was her that set the ranch on fire, something tells me they will be all fired up.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears an oxblood dress. Most women think "Diamonds are Forever" but she would rather have "The Spy Who Loved Me." Billy, of course, aims to please, but Victoria better hope he doesn't get caught; Jack would knock "The Living Daylights" out of his brother. Meanwhile, Victor "Live and Let Die" as he tells his children it is up to them to win the Newman Enterprises back. Perhaps in time, Jack will realize "The World is Not Enough" and come up with a new plan to bond with the Mustache.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a tweed blazer. As she jokes about her retirement, namely knitting and playing bridge, one can't help but think it's time for Mrs. C to get down to business. Katherine should take the helm of Chancellor Industries, if for no other reason than her sharp business wardrobe just waiting to be front and center. Neil may be saying hello to Jabot but viewers will be saying hello to Kay's diamonds, pearls, and closet full of pretty jackets like this one.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a boatneck fitted dress. Nick "slept a summer by her side, filled her days with endless wonder," but is gone now that autumn has come. Yes, Phyllis "Dreamed a Dream" that they would "live the years together" but unfortunately, alleged attempted murder and an affair are "storms they cannot weather." And so, she is left alone and Les Miserable.
She is wearing the Generosa Dress by La Petite Robe Di Chiara Boni.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a purple velvet jacket. Perhaps her wardrobe is an indication of what kind of cake she will be enjoying on her wedding day to Victor: red velvet. And hopefully, Nikki will take viewers behind the velvet rope for the entire wedding planning process and Newman Ranch redecorating. Who knows, if she plans winter nuptials, perhaps her wedding dress may even be made of, you guessed it, velvet.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a burgundy dress. Who thinks she should nominate her mother-in-law to appear on that TLC show Extreme Cheapskates? With the way Genevieve was going on and on to poor Lily about how she managed to get information out of the strange brunette woman for free, you would think she hadn't just bribed her with one hundred thousand dollars only minutes beforehand. And Lily questioning whether Ms. Atkinson even had such money in the first place? Pretty priceless. Although Genevieve's not running around town cutting her own hair and wearing clothes she's had since 1998, it would make for a fascinating episode of the series just the same.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a black long sleeve top with pointelle stitch. After hearing Jack took over Newman Enterprises, being fired, learning her childhood home burning to the ground, and visiting her father in the hospital, it is safe to say she is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Victoria is giving Judith Viorst's protagonist Alexander a run for his money; it is safe to say one can certainly write an award winning children's book about her awful adventures. Although she is down on her luck now, hopefully the next ninety days for her will be wonderful, marvelous, excellent, and terrific.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a gray cardigan with front pockets and ribbed sleeves. First she's a kleptomaniac, then she's a pyromaniac, now she's an amnesiac. What's next, will she regress to a full-out maniac? Sharon certainly has endured her share of troubles as of late but instead of making insane decisions, she should imagine her future (with Adam). You know, one filled with rainbows, puppy dogs, and unicorns where they live happily ever after and nobody burns their glorious castle to the ground.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a tweed blazer with leather trim and black contrast panels. With Halloween around the corner, one can't help but compare Victor and Jack's unending feud to that of Freddy vs. Jason. As Katherine attempts to counsel said Nightmare in Genoa City, it becomes quite apparent that everyone is on Team Victor as even Jack even admits as much upon a visit from the ghost of his late father. It is hard to predict who will ultimately win the final showdown as only time will tell which of the two monster moguls will have the last laugh.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Heather wears a pink boucle cropped jacket. As she comes to terms with the prosecution losing the case against Phyllis, one can't help but think of unjust court case outcomes, namely the one in To Kill A Mockingbird. Tom Robinson was convicted of raping Bob Ewell's daughter Mayella although all the evidence pointed towards his innocence. Similarly, it doesn't take a Scout to see that Phyllis is hardly a mockingbird, or rather a poor innocent creature merely bringing joy to the lives of others. The new judge may have thought she wouldn't say Boo to a goose but those in her life know they would likely find more lies and secrets in her past than there were gifts in Mr. Radley's tree.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Christine wears a sheer printed blouse. Let's see a show of hands - how many think she must have accidentally left her blazer in the car? Seriously, Christine sans blazer is like breathing without oxygen. Speaking of which, she may want to take a couple of deep breaths and go to her peaceful place now that Phyllis has managed to evade jail time for trying to kill her. Will the the former editor of Restless Style ever get the punishment she deserves? Cricket better not hold her breath on that one.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears a belted blazer. Looks like this queen is between a rook and a hard place as she attempts to come up with a strategy for how to play this particular game of chess. Avery better check with Phyllis before she and Nick oFischerly mate. That is, if she wants to attempt to maintain a good relationship with her sister. After all, if Red is merely used as a pawn in her sister's game, there is going to be a lot of anger across the board.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Genevieve wears a wool tweed plaid cropped blazer. As she runs around town trying to find somebody to latch onto for financial reasons, she also attempts to find out who is behind the stalking and harassment her family is experiencing. Genevieve figuratively puts on her deerstalker hat and attempts a poor man's version of the third degree complete with begging, whining, and bribing. Hate to say it but even Nancy Drew was more mature when handling her teenage juvenile mysteries. Yes, Genevieve has changed plenty since her arrival in Genoa City (much like the famous flashlight-holding investigator has evolved throughout the series' creation) but going from a wealthy nut-job to a strapped-for-cash trickster isn't necessarily ideal, now is it? On the bright side, her fashion has remained on point the entire time.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a turquoise top and a red skirt. She is as much a part of Newman Enterprises as Diane von Furstenberg is of her self-titled clothing label. While Victoria's portrait may not be the one hanging on the wall of the office a la Andy Warhol inspired DVF art, she has definitely helped shape the Newman company into what it is today. Just imagine, if Furstenberg had been ousted from her own fashion business, the iconic wrap dress may have never been created. That being said, Jack should think long and hard about terminating Victoria. After all, who knows what potential projects he is prematurely impeding by letting her go. And no, it is not purely coincidental that she just so happens to be decked out in Diane von Furstenberg.
Thank you to the wardrobe department for helping me with this outfit.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a brown sweater. It truly is a miscarriage of justice that she loses Adam's baby in the car accident. Although some may say Karma is to blame for this particular tragedy, the two seem to have hit the breaks recently on their sinister ways and have done their fair share of repenting for their past misdeeds. Chelsea even gave the green light for the Abbots to raise baby John, proving people really can oil change. Only time will tell if when it comes to Summer, if she will go down the road of forgiveness.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a peach bow blouse. Isn't it ironic she is shocked by Jack's recent actions yet she could have prevented this whole mess if she would have turned down his proposal. It's just like The Little Mermaid: Nikki gave Jack his legs and in the end, he found his voice. Sure, the newly feisty Abbott was never singing underwater songs about being "Part of that (Victor's) World" but he was certainly thinking it, right? As for the Newmans, now that Jack finally has the reigns of the company, one can only feel sorry for those "Poor Unfortunate Souls."

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chloe wears a black blazer and a beige pleated skirt. Remember that one time Brutus betrayed Caesar? Granted, Chloe's act of treason is insignificant compared to what is arguably one of the biggest acts of treachery in Shakespearean literature. Despite this, one can't help but notice several similarities between the two situations. For both respective parties, family plays a primary role as Chloe confesses to Kevin's brother Michael and Brutus betrays his uncle Caesar. Secondly, Portia persuades her husband Brutus to confide in her much like Chloe does of Kevin. The most notable similarity, however? Both traitors wear skirts. Gotta love that ancient Roman men's fashion, huh?
