Gina Rodriguez’s Breakup Style in Netflix’s Someone Great Is a Whole Mood

Netflix’s Someone Great is the realest breakup film of the year. Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez plays an up and coming music journalist named Jenny who is forced to grow up and move on—in both her professional and personal life—when she lands an amazing job at Rolling Stone but has to move across the country from her besties and now ex-boyfriend.

30 minutes into the film, I couldn’t get over how painfully raw and relatable Jenny’s relationship with her ex (LaKeith Stanfield) was. It reminded me that distance isn’t what kills a relationship; you can live in the same apartment-city-time zone and still feel like there’s a wall between you. I felt that! I’m also deeply obsessed with how this rom-com portrays Gina Rodriguez’s relationship with her on-screen besties (Brittany Snow and DeWanda Wise) as 100 percent supportive with hilarious moments sprinkled in.

But the biggest thing I couldn’t get over is how Instagram-friendly Jenny’s closet was! I almost broke the replay button with the amount of times I forced myself to go back and drool over her outfit choices.

It’s obvious that the costume department put in serious research to get her New York style down and let her clothes tell a story. As a New Yorker, I could feel the city vibes in every crop top and high ponytail.

Gina Rodriguez’s breakup style (if this wasn’t a thing before, it is now!) in this film is the new sweatpants and comfy tee. It’s perfect for when you’re busy burying your feelings in ice cream and Netflix but want to look like you’re put together on the surface. Here’s how you can raid her closet.

    Please tell me where I can find something like that mini cross body purse her friend was wearing in the clothing store. I’m obsessed!

      Sure! I’ll take a look at that scene again and post a few dupes in a comment. I loved that scene!

      I’m really sorry I wasn’t able to get to this sooner; I took an unexpected but necessary break from my blog. Here are some dupes to make up for it! I’m pretty sure she is wearing a belt bag/fanny pack here. You can also wear any purse with an adjustable strap in this style. Hope this helps!

        I found this oversized v-neck sweater that looks very similar from Urban Outfitters. She’s holding a Feminist mug from UO in this scene, so I’m 80% sure this is the sweater!

        Here’s a dupe from H&M. It’s currently sold out but will hopefully come back in stock:

        And one more option:

  5. […] like the PLAGUE) was a welcome change. My personal style is very similar to both Jane’s and Gina Rodriguez, so it was fun trying to incorporate the best of both worlds into my own […]

  6. […] When Someone Great came out on Netflix earlier this year, I spent a lot more time than I should have rewinding to the scenes with DeWanda Wise’s character Erin. Seeing a black actress in a lead role without being diminished to a small sidekick role or comedic relief speaks volumes to the kind of representation that this film demands. […]
