This past weekend was the season finale of Series 9 of Doctor Who… Tear. The main thing to come from this is that Clara Oswald is gone. More tears.
But there’s one thing for sure. She definitely went out with style. Like literal style, I am in love with her clothes. A little while ago I did a Definitive Ranking of ALL of Clara Oswald’s Outfits. Today I’m going to rank her outfits from Series 9. This season there were a lot of the similar basics we’ve grown accustomed to, except she was also wearing pants a lot of the time. Weird! Making this list was a little trickier than the previous one, for starters, I don’t have any of these items (yet!) and haven’t cosplayed Clara from Series 9.
Read on for the Definitive Ranking of Clara Oswald’s Outfits from Series 9!
8. The Girl Who Died
This outfit started with a jean shirt which was excellent. I have a jean shirt myself, but then there were some added Viking layers and I grew less fond of the outfit. The colours are fun and it’s a great outfit for running around with Vikings, but it’s just not really my style. Therefore it gets the spot at the bottom of this list.
7. The Magician’s Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar
I like a lot of things about this outfit. I like the boots and the jacket. I like the grey sweater and I like the pattern of the dress. Together though I’m less of a fan. I don’t think this is the most flattering outfit for Clara. The skirt is too long for someone so tiny and the sweater over-top makes her look larger than she actually is. But as I still love the individual items it doesn’t get the bottom spot.
6. Sleep No More
Here is the return of classic Clara. This is a very typical outfit for her. I like the added pop of colour in the skirt and the simple black top. The sweater and skirt are nice and they pair really well together but overall this one isn’t very memorable. Just a nice cute outfit.
5. The Woman Who Lived
We only see Clara very briefly in this episode but when she come running in at the end she looks fabulous. I want a black sweater similar to this with a little white ruffle around the collar. This and the grey skirt she wears it with makes a perfect outfit. And it’s an outfit I would definitely wear in my everyday life.
4. Hell Bent
This little blue and white waitress outfit is just perfect. It’s so cute. It’s a perfect Clara take on a style we haven’t seen her in. I could probably sew this one if I wanted. If only I had a 12 to cosplay with!
3. The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion
I love so much about Clara’s look here. The black jacket gives her a cool and professional, but also sinister look. I no longer have a black trench coat like this, but just looking at this makes me want one. She looks so classy. It’s great for an episode where we never really knew if she was good or bad.
2. Under the Lake/Before the Flood
I think this is Clara’s most adorable outfit of the season. It’s just so cute! I almost want it, but then I don’t think it’s something I would ever actually wear. But it works really well for her. It’s different, very British and so in her style. I also love the yellow and blue. I’ve started wearing more yellow as well, such an excellent colour!
1. Face the Raven
I’m a big fan of this look. Clara’s sweater is gorgeous. I love the grey and added white. I have a grey dress with a white collar that is very similar to this sweater. It’s definitely the closest thing I have to a Clara outfit from this season. And the funny thing is that I owned it long before the first photos from this episode came out.
Overall I don’t think there’s anything from this series that I’d put in the Top 5 of my previous ranking. The last few might make the Top 10, but by that point there are just so many fabulous outfits to rank!
I’m happy there are only a few weeks now until the Christmas special. I’m excited for the return of River, but I’m really gonna miss Clara.
Thanks for reading! What’s your favourite Clara Oswald outfit? Let me know in the comments.
