* FreezeFrameEnding: The season 4 finale, focusing on [[spoiler:Poussey's backstory in light of her death]], ends with the image of her by the river in New York City, smiling into the camera. The actress noted how that's not a thing that OITNB does, but after seeing it knew that the producers and directors were right to do it. Aside from ending the story well, the set-up of the shot evokes ''The 400 Blows'', and so may be additionally referring to and invoking a lot of the unfair judicial practices and discrimination.

** Piper potentially qualifies as a mild example, considering she was obsessed with being environmentally conscious, trying out vegan diets, and trying to get a soap-making company started. Arguably, this makes her more of a {{Hipster}} or a
BourgeoisBohemian.

** An EnforcedTrope with most of the women, given their living conditions, though some of them pass with UnkemptBeauty and some (like Sophia and Morello) maintain their feminine looks. Special mention of this trope goes to the members of Pennsatucky's group, who are given bad teeth, skin problems and perpetually dirty hair. Flores is especially badly groomed, with a big unibrow, when the actress who plays her is quite attractive.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Larry [[spoiler:writing about Piper's experience/profiting off of it]] was considered a JerkAss move in the show and drove a wedge between him and Piper. In real life, their relationship was understandably put to the test but never seriously suffered as it did in the show; his memoir ''brought them closer together'' and [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/leonoraepstein/6-major-differences-between-orange-is-the-new-black-the-book she considered it a wonderful Christmas present]]. In general, the real Larry was noted as being quite popular among the inmates and had "fans behind bars," and the woman who Red is based off of becaume quite suspicious when Piper was visited by an apparently single man.
