This is the third installment in our series on One Tree Hill fashion inspiration and after Brooke’s bombshell style and Peyton’s rock-chic fashion, Haley‘s style is like a breath of fresh air.
About Haley’s Style
Unlike both Brooke and Peyton, Haley has always been the down-to-earth girl next door. Throughout the seasons she has seen her fair share of drama (getting married as a high school sophomore?!), but Haley has always been a loving mother and friend – and her style reflects this.
As a mom and a teacher, she relies on stylish but comfortable pieces like cardigans, jeans and modest dresses at both work and at home. The great thing about Haley’s look is that it is super versatile – you can always dress these pieces up or down, and tailor the looks to fit your own unique style.
Below are a few elements of Haley’s style, and more tips on how you can achieve her look for yourself.
Deep greens were a popular trend on the Golden Globes red carpet this year and they’re also a favorite hue of Haley’s. A flattering color on almost everyone, emerald green has been worked into Haley’s wardrobe in the form of t-shirts, dresses, scarves and even shoes. Whether her hair is a dark blonde or a deep auburn, the jewel tone always enhances her natural coloring – as it will for you!
No matter what season, occasion or fabric, a pretty green piece will always be in style. If you don’t want to a go the green-shirt route, try adding small touches of the luxe color. A deep hunter green scarf or velvet flats are super chic.

Being around kids all day necessitates a comfortable and practical wardrobe. However, Haley proves that this doesn’t mean that you need to completely sacrifice style to do so! Dresses are a big part of her wardrobe, but in contrast to Brooke, Haley favors looser styles in comfortable fabrics. By finding the balance between trendy and practical, she manages to always look confident, put-together and cute.
The great thing about casual dresses are that they are easy to dress up and down – perfect to get the most bang for your buck on a college budget. Look for classic shapes, bright colors and the perfect balance of skin and cover to incorporate Haley’s style into your own look.

Haley is a jeans-and-tee girl at heart and she always manages to make a pair of jeans and a cardigan look chic and stylish. In keeping with comfort, these separates are great for mixing and matching for class and lunch dates. Rather than investing in a super-skinny pair of distressed jeans, opt for a classic trouser or boot-cut fit in a dark wash. You’ll get a ton of use out of them and they’re also easy to dress up and dress down.
As for tops, Haley always has luxe, comfortable sweaters, tees and knits. Matched with a classic pair of jeans, you’ll have the perfect down-to-earth girl-next-door look.

Tying it All Together
Haley Scott’s style is classic Americana – basic jeans, tees, rich colors and tailored dresses. While Brooke and Peyton both have trendy, cutting-edge style, Haley’s looks are the most versatile and great investment pieces.
