Style Muse: Fiona Glenanne from Burn Notice

The Boy and I started re-watching Burn Notice over the winter holidays and we’re currently on re-runs of Season 3 this week.

The series ended in 2013 but style lasts forever! Gabrielle Anwar plays Fiona Glenanne as the lead female actor on set. Fiona is a former IRA (Irish Republican Army) operative and Michael’s on-again/off-again girlfriend but her true passion lies in firearms and explosives. She lends tactical support to Michael during their missions together.

I noted Fiona Glenanne’s laid-back style the first time I watched the series but I decided to investigate her style in-depth this time around. I simply love the sexy boho vibe Fiona pulls off from episode to episode.


Signature Fi

gabrielle-anwar-burn-notice-fashion-4-325 Fiona’s signature style comprises of four key elements:

  • flared denim
  • loose white t-shirt
  • sunglasses (hers are always oversized)
  • wedges

Fiona’s style is practical and girl-next-door sexy. Stack a couple of bracelets, add a functional bag and you’re good to go. On the beauty front, Fi is always rocking the no makeup-makeup look with natural waves in her hair. Slap on some nude lipstick, embrace your natural hair texture and you’re good to go.

Style tip: It’s all about ATTITUDE! Fiona’s clothes are pretty basic but with her sassy attitude and confident demeanour,  she transforms what she’s wearing into something sexy!

Date Night Fi 

Fiona has two modes – work or play. On date night, Fiona favours dresses. She can be found in mini dresses like this:


or in something more demure like this:


I personally favour all the white dresses she wears throughout the seasons. I love how the color white hints at Fiona’s hidden innocence- really, all she wants is to marry Michael and live with him happily ever after…and blow stuff up once in a while.

Fiona Glenanne - Date Night 

Pair a white dress (preferably tighter on top and looser on the bottom) with classic brown wedges. Add a black bracelet to suggest a hint of utilitarianism and use some nude lipstick to emphasize your natural beauty.

What do you like about Fiona’s style? Would you wear her clothes?
