Archie, Veronica, Betty- these iconic comic characters defined the childhood of many a generation. And they were given a new lease of life, quite literally a real-life avatar, by Netflix through Riverdale!
They were always fashion forward but it’s also safe to say that the show has created its own unique fashion brand. A modern take on the beloved Archie comics’ franchise, the characters of Riverdale sport the most enviable outfits.
From Veronica’s French chic vibe to Betty's girl-next-door look, Cheryl’s femme-fatale and Archie’s all-American jock style with Jughead’s mysterious biker vibe – we love them all!
With such strong fashion aesthetics, it’s hard to not want to emulate your favourite Riverdale character's style sense too! So, here we have for you a breakdown of the iconic, individual style of the 5 main characters, and we tell you how you can dress like your favourite Riverdale characters too.
All without breaking the bank!
The Chic Veronica Lodge
Veronica Lodge is Blair Waldorf revisited, with her designer wardrobe and killer attitude. Her style explained in few words ---- French chic with an Upper West Side twist! She’s the quintessential posh girl who looks dressy even when sporting casuals – with her pearls and jewel embellished detailing on even her basics.
To rock her style, stick to dark neutrals like black, plum, navy, with a subtle mix of white and light pink. Veronica prefers form fitting pieces – like a fitted black skirt paired with a white blouse, or a white lace dress paired with a black jacket.
Betty’s Girl Next Door Vibe
Riverdale’s sweetheart, Betty Cooper makes a girly girl-next-door look so appealing! Her style is super simple yet feminine, as she rocks pastel colours with a strong ‘60s vibe. You’ll often see her slaying boyfriend jeans with a slouchy sweater.
Betty’s style is all about soft fabrics, pretty florals, girly blouses and lets not forget – peter pan collars! Her look is polished and pristine, so steer clear of distressed or ripped denims and bold colours. Rock your inner Betty in pretty DJ&C floral dresses, all under Rs.1399.
Archie’s All-American Preppy Jock
This red-headed hottie has a comfortable, laid-back style that screams high school jock. His style is simple, athletic, and very ‘80s – easy to put together in a jiffy!
His go-to outfit is a basic pair of light-wash jeans paired with a white tee. Though Archie Andrews is often seen sporting button-down shirts layered over his simple tees, too. His signature style piece is a jacket, so don’t forget that little detail!
The Mysterious Jughead Jones
We have a big crush on Forsythe Pendleton’s Jughead Jones! He’s so mysterious with a hipster, biker vibe going on! His grunge look makes him stand apart from his polished Riverdale friends, bringing with it the other (the darker!) side of retro fashion.
His colours of choice are muted – greys, blacks and blues. His brand of effortless, badass fashion is easy to pull off with joggers paired with a graphic tee, topped with a checked shirt. Wear the shirt open over the tee, or tie it around your waist. Finish off your outfit with black shoes, a leather or denim jacket and a beanie, of course! Channel your inner Jughead in checked shirts from The Privilege Club, all under Rs.900.
Cheryl, The Sexy Vixen
Cheryl Blossom knows how to walk into any room and make it her own! This sexy vixen has an appeal of her own – alluring, seductive and oh-so-sexy. RED is Cheryl’s signature colour, and her style is hot and sultry, yet elegant.
Rock Cheryl’s fiery sassy style with a red dress, so grab these hot red choker neck dresses from DJ&C all under Rs.799. Or pair a red blouse with trendy miniskirt in black or white. Finish your look with a dramatic choker necklace, high heels and retro sunnies.
