Television characters have long-inspired our fashion choices with audiences wanting to emulate the style of many fictional personalities over the years, including Saved by the Bell's Kelly Kapowski and, of course, Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw.

From BBC thrillers to original Netflix series and even reality shows, more and more popular characters are doubling up as sartorial trendsetters with wardrobes that many viewers could only dream of owning in real life.

But, just who are the most influential TV characters in the world of fashion right now?

To find out, fashion search platform Lyst and visual discovery engine Pinterest crunched both their combined global data sets.

The teams at each organisation analysed searches across a combined pool of 306 million monthly users around the world from January to August to reveal the characters who are having the greatest impact on our style choices this year.

The list includes a host of hit shows which have charmed audiences with their on-screen style, from Netflix’s reboot of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to Big Little Lies, Killing Eve and Queer Eye.
