I always loved Mother Angelica and her sisters.  She is like the old Catholic grandma I never had.

If I can put in one vote for a non-Catholic habit, the habit of a Russian Orthodox schemamonk is interesting:

The Traditional Redemptoristine Habit needs to be added here.

These four sisters are the last to wear it in the whole world:

I like the simplicity of the Benedictine habit myself. Then again, I lean Benedictine (with some inclination towards Carmelite spirituality, though that could simply be because the two are somewhat similar).

Pffft, religious habits. They'll never have the fashion sense of  Mgr. Ronald Knox.

I agree. So to what extent do habits express the charism of the order? Because I think it is more than coincidence that I'm drawn primarily to Benedictine spirituality, then Carmelite and ditto for habits if you had to ask me for favorites.
