Tank Tops in Law and Order: SVU Season 2 Episode 3: “Closure, Part II”

I don’t know much (read: anything) about fashion, but while watching an episode of Law and Order: SVU, I noticed something fascinating: the fashion director of this episode totally loves tank tops. I’m no expert in the criminal justice system, or even know what is acceptable to wear to work, but it seems weird that Olivia Benson would wear sleeveless shirts to work in the sex crimes division of the NYPD almost every day. Let me be clear that I have no problem with this. I completely support women’s right to bare arms! I just think it’s really interesting that tank tops are so prominently displayed in just one episode of my favorite television show and no one ever mentions it. So yeah, here’s a quick rundown of my favorite parts in this episode which featured about 19 scenes with women, and probably 14 involving tank tops.

In the opening scene, Detective Olivia Benson stylishly investigates a horrific rape scene while wearing a sweet jacket!
While interviewing the victim, Benson decides to get a little more casual and rocks a plain t-shirt!
Holy guac! First serious witness is sporting the always fashionable turtleneck sans sleeves.
Benson likes her style and immediately gets in on the sleeveless action!
And in Benson’s next meeting with Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot, Cabot joins the club!
During the long and arduous trial, Benson and Cabot help a witness prepare for trial (while enjoying some double sleeveless time together!)
Obviously, their witness (the wife of an accused rapist) thought a tank top wouldn’t be appropriate for court.

Why so much tank tops? Aren’t they generally considered not to be professional attire? I guess not, though… Everyone enjoy your freedom of arms!

Nailed it.

  1. I agree with the guy above me, Mr. hate Mike. I find it hard to believe that anyone cares about SVU. This Mike guy must be a fucking idiot.
