Dan’s paralegal, Linda, starts competing with Betty for more than the fashion spotlight in the fourth episode of Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story. But as Betty does whatever she can to fight to keep her man, she steps up her style game (and their credit card bills).
Working Dinner Date
Now under Dan’s wing as his paralegal, Linda wears a figure-flattering brown print wrap dress that’s both stylish and comfortable enough for overtime at the office.
Linda masters the typewriter and simple yet put-together attire for the office in this teal silk blouson, dolman sleeve dress with a subtle textured print.
Hitting The Spot
For lunch with the ladies, Betty wears a white V-neck top with large black polka dots, accented by a triple-strand of pearls, a wide black-and-white belt and a small black quilted purse.
Karen knows one can never go wrong with an endlessly versatile tweed jacket. For lunch with Betty and their friends, Karen chooses a version in shades of blue and pairs it with a white top and chunky gold necklaces.
Lady in Rusty Red
Sitting in the back of the courtroom with her daughter to observe Dan during a court proceeding, Betty stands out in a top in a bold shade of rusty red and even bolder oversized collar and black pussy bow.
While Dan comes home with a brand new sports car, Betty sports a lilac and white leaf-patterned puff-sleeve sweater and matching frosted lipstick.
Let's Get Physical
For a scenic walk overlooking the ocean, Betty dons a sea foam green tracksuit accented with a pink, purple and black graphic print, while Janet is all about the aerobics class-inspired leotard, tights and leg warmers.
For a trip to the mall to deck their halls, Betty gets decked out in a ruffled red and black plaid matching top and skirt while Karen wears an LBD with majorly bejeweled sleeves.
This Magenta Moment
Betty’s love of plaid doesn’t end with her festive holiday ensemble; later in the episode she dons this magenta number with sky-high shoulder pads, styled with chunky gold earrings and a delicate gold necklace. The outfit is pulled together with a coordinated magenta hair ribbon.
Betty’s final plaid moment of the episode is this pastel frock—a perfect color palate for Southern California—once again styled with a coordinated hair ribbon. This is the ‘80s after all!
Betty surprises Dan in the office for his birthday wearing this yellow party dress. The puff sleeves, the color palate, the ruching, the ruffles; this dress just screams 1980s!
