The musical high-school dramedy “Glee” ran on Fox from 2009 to 2015 and along the way, it showcased a lot of memorable fashions. 

The singing and dancing cheerleaders, jocks, geeks, and outcasts of the fictional William McKinley High School may have been characterized first and foremost by their place in the social hierarchy, but their personalities came through in their music — and, in some part, their clothes.

Here are the first and last outfits of 20 major characters from “Glee.”

We only see a glimpse of Rachel Berry’s outfit during her first appearance.

Rachel Berry's main stand-out piece is a knotted pearl necklace.

First appearance: 1.1, “Pilot”

Rachel’s very first appearance is when she witnesses the former choir teacher inappropriately touching a male student. She looks on, wearing a tortoiseshell headband, a knotted pearl necklace, and what appears to be a black jacket with a flower decal.

Her final look is a simple white dress.

Last appearance: 6.13, “Dreams Come True”

When we last see Rachel, it’s on the series’ final scene — a musical number featuring the majority of the show’s cast.

She’s wearing a simple white shift dress and red heels, looking just as feminine but significantly more grown-up than when she kicked off the series as a high-school sophomore. 

Finn Hudson’s first look is athletic and casual.

First appearance: 1.1, “Pilot”

Despite being the quarterback, Finn doesn’t kick off the series in a jersey. Instead, he’s wearing a slightly preppy layered look in neutral colors, possibly hinting at the fluid social status he’ll have at the school as the show progresses.

His final look is a button-down plaid shirt.

Last appearance: 4.19, “Sweet Dreams” 

Finn’s last physical appearance is as a college student who is helping out the glee club in his spare time. For his final look, he’s dressed in a grown-up plaid button-down.

This is the last episode the late Cory Monteith acted in as Finn and is the final episode the character appears in. He later appears a few more times in photos in his memorial episode, “The Quarterback,” and in flashbacks from the season-six episode “2009.”

Quinn Fabray’s first look is, unsurprisingly, a cheer uniform.

Artie Abrams’ first look is mostly white.

From day one, Artie’s look has been “geek chic.” He first appears in a white shirt buttoned to his chin, khakis, loafers, glasses — and the little white gloves for performing the tune “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat.”

His final look is a simple red polo.

Tina’s style change may be one of the most pronounced throughout the series. After her goth-girl beginnings during the first couple of seasons, she ends up shedding the accessories and dark colors for more fitted, contemporary outfits.

Her last look is a white blouse with a fun cut and bright-red pants.

 

Brittany S. Pierce also kicks off the series in a cheer uniform.

Will lets us know right off the bat that he’s a cool teacher — if somewhat downtrodden and oblivious — when he rolls up in his lemon wearing shiny sunglasses and an otherwise straight-laced outfit.

His final look is a red sweater, collard shirt, and jeans.

Schue looks professional and a little more relaxed in his last appearance. He’s wearing a shirt and tie layered under a red sweater, paired with jeans and sneakers. His hair also seems to be a little less stiff, which Sue would probably approve of.

Sue’s last appearance isn’t so different from her first — she’s still making self-aggrandizing cracks and wearing a red tracksuit.

This time, her tracksuit has the seal of the Vice President of the United States and her glasses point to the humbling wisdom she’s acquired since her introduction as the glee club’s antagonist. 

Emma Pillsbury’s first look is fitted and preppy.
