I don’t think I can properly explain my love for The CW’s, Riverdale. I know! Don’t judge me. I am a grown ass woman, yet I can’t stop thinking about fan theories and potential storylines of fictional teenagers? Last season my friend, Kevin and I would text during every single episode dissecting every longing glance between Betty and Archie, or yelling at the screen whenever Miss Grundy appeared. Don’t even get me started on her!
Yet, in my opinion I feel it’s the fashion that ties the show together. The clean lines and tailored looks pay homage to the beloved comics that date back to the 1940’s, while serving as a stark contrast to the seedy underbelly of the town and its people. Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) is an excellent example of this. The moment she walked into the Chock’lit Shoppe in that hooded cape, I was hooked.
Here are some of Veronica’s signature looks from Season 1:
I want one for each day of the week!
Veronica and Betty in their River Vixen practice uniforms. Yes, I laughed at the name, River Vixens, but I secretly want to be one. If you look closely you can see that Veronica wears her pearls with everything! Love that!
As you know, I love plaid, like a lot. I found out this outfit was from Brooks Brothers, but it had sold out. I still cry about it.
Veronica silently judging her fellow classmates’ taste while looking flawless in this black lace number.
She does tend to wear black a lot, so I like when she adds some color to her wardrobe, like with this magenta fit and flare dress.
Veronica mixing it up again with a patterned skirt, and a different pearl necklace.
I think this is one of my favorite episodes/scene when Veronica comes to terms with her Dad’s criminal past. Again, plaid and those pearls! Yes, please!
