Jesse Pinkman's Printed Hoodies and Tees
Yo! Is there any more fervent fan of the crazily-patterned sweatshirt than Jesse? I think not. In the series' earlier episodes, everyone's favorite foul-mouthed drug-dealer-turned-meth-cook constantly looked as though he'd stepped straight out of Ed Hardy's e-commerce site. He's since ditched the skull tees, striped beanies and dizzying hoodies in favor of more somber attire—but you've got to give the guy snaps for his daring experimentation with clashing colors. (Also, for being one of the only characters on the series with some semblance of a soul.)

Marie's Predilection For Purple
Over the course of Breaking Bad's five-season run, we've almost never seen Marie Schrader wear anything other than purple—heck, even her kitchen appliances are violet-hued! Several theories have emerged about why the sometimes-kleptomaniac favors the royal shade; for one, it's a symbol of wealth and prosperity, something Marie's husband Hank's job with the DEA always afforded her. Meanwhile, others suspect it has to do with the character's obsessive-compulsive nature.

Breaking Beige
According to many, whenever BrBa characters sports nude hues from head to toe, it symbolizes that they've sold their soul. Notice how towards the end of the series, both Walt and Skyler are rarely seen in anything other than beige? It's because they've become shells of their former selves. Kind of makes you think about the whole neutrals-being-in-for-fall thing differently, huh?

The Heisenberg Hat
Hands down, the most captivating component of this show is Walter White's incredible, terrifying transformation from a friendly teacher and family man into a violent, egomaniacal drug kingpin. And nothing symbolizes that character shift quite as well as Heisenberg's iconic porkpie hat. Whenever the show's antihero dons his ironically dapper accessory, you know the dude means business. Cue the creepy guitar riffs!

Walt and Jesse's Hazmat Suits
OK, I know what you're thinking: "Hazmat suits are not stylish, no matter how you slice it." But bear with me here: we've been seeing more and more mechanic-style jumpsuits on recent runways (seriously, who thought the onesie trend would stick around for so long?). And remember how Carine Roitfeld, the patron saint of Parisian chic, dedicated an entire editorial in CR Fashion Book's last issue to the many ways one can style a white disposable painter's suit from Home Depot? Could "Mademoiselle C" be a Breaking Bad fan?! SO MANY QUESTIONS!
