Inspired By… Mel Burke

Over the past few weeks, the television show that’s been on everybody’s mind is Melissa & Joey. With news of its recent cancellation, fans all across America are stirring in their seats wondering what they’ll be doing on Wednesday nights instead of watching their beloved sitcom. The show was full of comedic relationship drama and a super attractive cast that made everyone tune in. Along with that, the fashion choices on the show were fabulous, especially when it came down to Melissa’s outfits. In honor of the last season of Melissa & Joey, here is a list of the best outfits Melissa wore throughout the seasons:


In this outfit from episode seven, Mel is wearing a super cute polka dot dress. This business casual look is great for plenty of office settings and can be paired with great accessories – like the waist belt shown – to complete the outfit.


Mel is seen sporting this lovely floral top during episode six. She pairs is with a classic black pencil skirt, but you can always make it more casual by mixing this look up with jeans and some cute spring sandals!


Even though Mel pairs this pleated lace skirt with a sweater for winter weather, this skirt could also be perfect for the spring! Lightweight and comfortable, consider trying to match this midi skirt with a crop top for a trendy look this season. 


In season three, Mel was seen wearing this great pink and white striped jacket. The zip accents and frayed look really show Mel’s more casual style.


Every girl loves a good hi-low styled dress! This pink and gold rose print dress was seen on Mel during season three when she was heading out to a formal dinner. With gold jewelry and a simple clutch, this ensemble could look great on anyone.


When Mel isn’t wearing the latest dresses, she’s usually sporting great blouses in bold colors. This example from season three shows off Mel’s girly side, and when she pulls a grey leopard blazer over it, the look is to die for!


Floral prints are totally in this season and there’s no one better to rock them than Mel Burke! With this mix of bold colors, such as purple and red, she is practically unstoppable. Who wouldn’t want this as part of their wardrobe?

Mel is the queen of the business casual lifestyle. Working hard and looking good are two goals that she met every Wednesday in the comedy Melissa & Joey and the fans are really sad to see her go. Luckily, you can still catch up with the sitcom, and Melissa’s killer outfits, on Netflix. Happy binging!
