New Year's Eve style inspired by 'How I Met Your Mother'

Still searching for a New Year’s Eve outfit? PopStyle is here to help! From a black tie affair to a night on the couch, TV costume designers show you how to dress for any occasion. 

We swooned when Barney proposed to Robin (Cobie Smulders) — but that was partly because Robin, who has made some questionable fashion choices in the past, looked so stunning in Monique Lhuillier.

Costume designer Reiko Kurumada told EW that the second she saw the sequined red gown, she knew it was The One. “That specific dress was perfect for the engagement scene. We didn’t want to take away from that very special, poignant moment between Barney and Robin, while still illustrating Robin’s classic, timeless, natural beauty,” she said. “The dress is so elegantly simple, while still making the style impact we wanted by the gorgeous color and delicate bead work.”

FLASHBACK: Remember when Robin couldn’t dress to save her life?

You might have noticed that the Canadian-pop-star-turned-journalist has stepped up her style lately, now HIMYM costume designer Reiko Kurumada tells EW that the whole gang will be dressing better this season.

Kurumada, who has been part of the wardrobe team since the series pilot, formally stepped into the head role last fall. Since taking the reins, she’s been helping Robin, Ted, Marshall, Lily and yes, even Barney, update their looks.

“In the previous years our show looked like it took place in L.A. when it’s actually New York. East Cost style compared to West Coast style is very different,” Kurumada said. “We’ve taken away a lot of patterned clothing and we’re [dressing the characters] to highlight seasonal changes. [We] want to make the show fashion forward while at the same time sticking with classic, elegant, styles and lines. That was something that was missing in previous seasons.”
