Sansa has used her hair and clothing to send very deliberate messages to her allies and her enemies on multiple occasions. The “dark Sansa” outfit she wore in Season 5, for instance, was an indication that she was well and truly a player in the game, with costume designer Michele Clapton explaining that her necklace specifically was symbolic of her own Needle. In Season 6, when Sansa reunited with Jon and the two of them were seeking allies in the North, she dressed not only herself, but also Jon, in the most Stark-ish clothes possible, reminiscent of Ned and Catelyn.
