Original Style Icons: Betty and Veronica

Yes, the world is filled with fashion-forward celebrities such as Elizabeth Olsen, Zoe Saldana, and Tilda Swinton, but don’t forget  about two fashionable ladies whose outfits stand the test of time—sixty-two years to be exact. Comic book characters Betty and Veronica have been making fashion statements since 1950 and it seems today’s tastemakers have been taking cues from these stylish frenemies. . We’ve picked some of our favorite B and V outfits from our new favorite tumblr, Betty and Veronica Fashions. While we’re glad that our thoughts on love and friendship have evolved (hopefully), we’re happy that many fashion statements have not.

Betty certainly knows how to rock bright colors. This awesome pencil skirt doesn’t hurt either.

If I had an outfit like this to travel in, hell, I’d travel anywhere.

Veronica’s over-the-knee boots were clearly a fashion trend long before 2010.

Everything about this dress makes me want to jump into the comic, rip it off Betty, and bring it home to wear. Every. Single. Day.

If only I could sport the tie trend as well as Betty does in her menswear-inspired outfit.

I’m so crazy about V’s skirt, I’m seeing spots.

Between the flare of Betty’s jean shorts and Veronica’s curve hugging, silhouette striped dress, it’s impossible to choose between the two. I feel Archie’s pain.
