The ‘Parks & Recreation’ Characters Sure Do Spend a Fuckton on Clothes

There's a lot to love about Parks and Recreation—which returns for its sixth season Thursday, September 26—particularly the cute style of the girls living in Pawnee. But after a closer look at the show's season five wardrobe, it's clear that these chicks wear some expensive shit for a bunch of small-town government employees.

Ann Perkins
Ann arguably has the most consistent wardrobe when it comes to balancing trendiness with adult restraint. She's very fond of Madewell, but she evidently splurges pretty often at Barneys.

April Ludgate
April's wardrobe budget is the least believable, considering that her character is frequently flat broke. Maybe it's because she's blowing her paychecks at Bergdorf's?

Leslie Knope
Granted, the cost of living in Pawnee is probably pretty low, but is it so low that someone like Leslie could drop an average of $400 on a blouse (never to be seen in the same blouse twice)?
