We're not ashamed to admit we've been glued to our TV screens this year; whether it's been binge-watching The Crown season 2 in recent weeks, learning about marine life and saving the planet one plastic water bottle at a time in Blue Planet 2 or watching Stranger Things season 2 from behind a cushion.
And all this screen time isn't just whiling away the hours and providing optimum water cooler chat- it's influencing our wardrobes and designers, too (Louis Vuitton's Stranger Things t-shirt was a peak example of this). Here are the series which have made The Telegraph fashion team reconsider their wardrobes this year...
Blue Planet 2
The TV programme that has most influenced my wardrobe this year is Blue Planet II. Now bear with me. I don't mean that I've started wearing polar bear fur, or fish leather shoes (it's a thing, look it up), in fact quite the opposite.
2017 has been the year that I've started to really hold myself accountable for my environmental choices at home and in my day-to-day life. But seeing the graphic impact that our problem with plastic and waste has had on our (blue) planet, my resolution for 2018 is to make sure it extends into my shopping habits. I want to buy less, but better. With a focus on sustainable, ethical and environmentally friendly pieces.
Luckily, there are whole host of brands and websites to help navigate this. Instagram account @the.ecoiste, curated by super stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray showcases brands that effect change. And Rêve en Vert and Maison de Mode, both multi-brand online stores that only sell fashion forward brands that adhere to their ethos: Fair, local, organic, or re-made. The offering is so good that 2018 sets to be the year that sustainability in fashion goes mainstream. CB

Stranger Things entrapped us all again for the second season this year, not just to the sofa for hours of consecutive Netflix watching, but in its brilliant execution of 80s style. Picked up by designers from Louis Vuitton to Topshop, everyone went Stranger Things mad, from slogan t-shirts to a resurgence in 80s trends. Eleven inspired us not only at Halloween with cult fans all holding boxes of potato waffles, but actress Millie Bobby Brown is quickly becoming a serious teen fashion icon. Season Three has been commissioned so this isn't a trend that won't be disappearing anytime soon. HEGet the Stranger Things look

Big Little Lies
I devoured HBO's irresistible drama series starring Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon in few sittings. The characters' relationship dynamics, constant drama and mysterious murders were intriguing enough, but it's worth noting how differently the three female lead roles dressed. Kidman's Celeste was a former attorney and wore an array of smart-casual everyday looks, typically pairing dark denim with cashmere. Shailene Woodley's character Jane was the most casual of all, favouring loungewear inspired outfits paired with denim and high-top trainers, but it was Witherspoon's character, Madeleine, that offered the most interesting departure from typical everyday wear. She favoured kitsch printed summer dresses and twinsets with sleek black accessories and always a heel - Michael Kors' spring/summer collection offered similar kitsch vibes. KT

Narcos, the Netflix original series depicting the rise and reign of drug lord Pablo Escobar, might have a male-dominated cast, but that doesn't mean the hit show isn't brimming with sartorial inspiration for both sexes. And considering the wider fixation with the 1970s that we've witnessed this year, this effect is unsurprising.
Global fashion search platform Lyst have reported a 256% increase in sales of retro sunglasses inspired by that era this year, and the striped polo shirts, bomber jackets and straight leg denim are all cohesive with trends we've seen emerging from the catwalk. OBSGet the Narcos look

Game of Thrones
From Sansa Stark's embellished capes to Daenerys Targaryen's draped silk goddess gowns, there was a wealth of fashion inspiration to take away from almost all characters in the penultimate series of Game of Thrones. It feels like floral embroideries have crept over everything on the high street since the series wrapped up, and on the catwalk, designers like Elie Saab even admitted to referencing the show on their mood boards.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Amazon Studios' new comedy series was a late entry, but made a big splash - shortly after its late-November premiere, the show earned two Golden Globes nominations. It's hard to tear your eyes away from the titular Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a 1950s New York housewife turned stand-up comic. She traipses through gigs in a wardrobe of designer dresses that transcend her grubby venues (check out the formal Jacques Fath outfit she wears to her obscenity hearing) and loves fashion so much that she even jokes about it in her set: in the second episode, Midge says she learned to drive because she fell in love with a pair of pink driving gloves. Now that's motivation. ECGet The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel look

Everything about The Crown is completely glorious- feeling like a fly on the wall as HM has heart to hearts with Jackie Kennedy as they stroke the corgis or seeing Princess Margaret embrace her only possible job in life as a fabulous It girl with often too-wild abandon.
None of this would be possible without the clothes, which speak volumes for characters who are often not people of many words. I've revelled in the Queen's neat twinsets, tulle ballgowns and ubiquitous frame handbags and Margaret's Parisian meets Swinging 60s cool. It might strictly be a period drama but all those sweet knits, kilts and block heels look so right for now. And a glittering tiara will never go out of style. BH
