Game Of Thrones: Real Life Style
What would happen if Westeros’ finest shopped on the high street?
By Tamara Roper
Hands up who has played the game where you imagine which Game of Thrones character you’d be (if Westeros was actually West Europe and you knew how to use a sword) We’ve all been there, dreaming about being a GOT babe or hero; assessing the pros and cons of each family and who you’d have in your gang/bed.
What happens when you flip it round, and start thinking about what might happen if Game of Thrones characters were real people, wearing clothes that don’t seem entirely unpractical? Imagine an Urban Outiftters in Kings Landing, or if the Night’s Watch had a wifi connection and access to ASOS. The game takes on a whole new meaning, one that MTV Style has kindly thought about for you. Now that GOT series 4 has ended, here’s something to ease you back into reality (or not).
You’d hope that Jon Snow would know more about fashion that he does about, erm, anything else. An outdoorsman seen wearing nothing but black, he’d keep it efficient yet stylish, streamlined but distinctly sexy in its ‘I can navigate a forest and slay’ appeal.

Ultimate GOT babe is obviously that privately educated hottie who looks like she’s spent no time on her outfit yet looks perfect all the time. You want to hate her but you can’t because she’s super nice and will always tell you when you’ve got food round your mouth or have your skirt tucked into your knickers.

This guy can pull off jock fashion as well as he can unwashed-bleeding-hand-stump prisoner. IRL, Ser Jaemie would be on a freshly ironed shirt with sparkling clean trainers tip- the kind of guy who knows he looks good and smirks about it.

Trainers: Nike Roshe Run Hype £71.99
Signet Ring: ASOS £6
Shorts: River Island £30
Everyone’s favourite girl-lad, Arya rocks androgynous styles morning, noon and night. She’s more a front of the crowd than happy glamping kinda gal, a comfort over style maverick.

Shorts: Motel, £35
Boots: Dr Marten’s, £100
Bag: Kanken Classic, £60
GOT’s most recent hunk, Oberyn is tall, dark and damn handsome in his blue garms and permanent state of undress. One of those guys who'll write letters to his mates rather than text them, and spends alot of time talking about the time he spent living in a tree in his gap year.
T Shirt: Stussy, £40
Sandals: Birkenstock, Arizona Two Strap, £49.95
Trousers: Palm Print Surf Joggers, Topman, £30
Haughty Cersei’s got cash to flash and knows exactly how to dress for occaision, just don't try and prise the wine glass out of her hand. Expect side eye if you’re wearing anything remotely not ‘this season’- actually, expect side eye any time. A power dresser, if anything.
Dress: Nasty Gal, £57.78
Trousers: French Connection, £85
Shoes: Whistles, £185
