Katy Sagal’s wardrobe in Sons of Anarchy

780ce29abba908648551f336880f3d75

I have just binge-watched 7 seasons of Sons of Anarchy. I would imagine the viewer demographic is more male than female, but I love Katy Sagal as Gemma Teller-Morrow. She is the wife of the Executive Producer, Kurt Sutter, who also played Otto in the series.

Katy is in her sixties, yet her character, the matriarch of the biker club, was powerful, sexy and extremely attractive. They did not use camera filters on her, and if she has had surgery it was done extremely well. She does not have chocolate box pretty looks but her angular strong features make her all the more strong and sexy looking.

The wardrobe Katy wears in her role as Gemma Teller-Morrow is sexy and biker/rock chick (she is a singer so she has that whole Stevie Nicks thing going), but still age appropriate and not slutty. Who says 60-year olds have to wear elastic-waist Crimplene slacks and orthopaedic shoes?

The clothes Gemma wears are not extremely expensive designer duds either. She rocks Frye, Steve Madden, and Elizabeth and James boots, Citizens of Humanity, Seven and Guess jeans, and Royal Underground leather jackets (recognized by the fleur de lis charms hanging from the zipper pulls). She carries Harley Davidson and Betsey Johnson bags quite a lot. Betsey Johnson’s Bows and Arrows bag is the one she carries the most. Her belts are always striking and really top off her outfits. Her jewellery is usually delicate and layered which adds impact without overwhelming her outfits. Nothing is ever too shiny. Her earrings are often by Lucky.

One thing you can see with Gemma’s wardrobe is the importance of fit. Everything fits beautifully and suits her shape. This is one of the benefits of having a costume designer on the show. But for us lesser mortals, we can buy clothes and have them altered by a local seamstress for a perfect fit. It is often not expensive and really makes a world of difference.

The Sons of Anarchy site carried copies of quite a few items of jewellery worn in the series and I was so sorry to have missed out on the big ring with the yellow stone that Gemma wears through most of the series (see photo below).

They still sell the Lois Hill silver saddle ring that Gemma wears all the time, though (see below). Kelli Jones, the costume designer for the show, designed quite a few items for Gemma that were sold in the SOA store.

You don’t notice this, but her upper arms and deep cleavage are usually covered, and she does not show much skin in places older women should keep covered (a good tip for all of us).
It is so nice seeing an older woman in a big role, playing an older woman who is powerful, sexy and has a voice. Most women of a certain age are relegated to bit parts as the grandmother, but Katy owns the screen in every single episode. She wears what she wants without looking ridiculous.

And over and over again you can see the value of a good belt to pull together and add the final touch to an outfit.

    • It looks a bit like one that Kelli Jones designed for the Fxnetworks.com SOA shop a few years ago (now sold out, but it was called Limited Edition Gemma’s Leather Jacket Black), but I am not sure where this exact one came from, sorry!

  12. Well, now I know I have at least two things in common with you…mad love for paper planners, and mad love for Gemma! I’m so sad SOA is no longer on, because I loved Gemma like I loved Carmela of The Sopranos. Gemma was the glue that held that show together!

    • I am not sure about those bags but she carries Harley Davidson and Betsey Johnson bags quite a lot. The Betsey Johnson Bows and Arrows bag is the one she carries the most. I think that is the one in photograph 2.
