'The Mindy Project' Style Lessons: Sparkles And Jewel Tones Forever

6. All underwear should have purpose.

On top of the release of Mindy Kaling's new book today, those with Hulu access welcomed Dr. Mindy Lahiri back for season 4 of The Mindy Project, a sitcom we love for both its tight writing and for its wardrobe. (Those without Hulu can catch seven episodes online starting Sept. 16 at noon. Hooray!)

Here's why we feel comfortable saying we've learned a lot about style from Mindy and her penchant for patterns: Since the series' debut back in 2012, we've watched her own the heck out of a very unique and bold sense of style, and along the way she reminded us that sparkles are appropriate always, and we never need to fear a bright tone.

Here are a few of our other favourite style lessons, courtesy of Mindy Lahiri and in turn, Mindy Kaling.
