Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The Year In Funny Styling

A look back at the greatest joke fashions of the show's freshman season.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine wrapped up its amazingly assured first season last night, and while we could cap off the year any number of ways -- best Holt stares? grossest Boyle dishes? craziest Gina hobbies? -- I decided to go the superficial route instead and collect some of the best fashion- and styling-related visual jokes of the year. Hey, it's still a fashion show even if all the fashions are don'ts.

We didn't need any more proof that there's more to Terry than his 3% body fat, but we got it anyway: here's what he looked like during his junior year abroad in Tokyo, getting dumped by his girlfriend. "Terry came here to learn Japanese, but all he learned was heartbreak!"

Jake's been a cop for a while. Like, long enough to have rocked a Lance Bass look.

Jake has not, however, been a cop long enough to have borrowed wardrobe from Barney Miller, like Scully and Hitchcock could.

Boyle showed a willingness to splash out when it came to outerwear, whether it just happened to catch his eye in the evidence locker...

...or because he needed to express his despondency after a breakup by wearing what could easily pass as a Morpheus Hallowe'en costume.

But no one liked a good dress-up like Peralta, from a "triple-breasted" gangster suit...

...to finding the most embarrassing thing both he AND Santiago could wear on their forced date.

So naturally, he had to close out the season with (arguably) his most flamboyant three-piece undercover costume comedy, so that he, Santiago, and Holt could infiltrate a ballroom-dancing contest.

Godspeed, Brooklyn Nine-Nine! Next season, please show us Santiago in high school. I need to see her in a Hypercolor shirt with a giant peace sign on it!
