Betty & Veronica Fashion Friday

Betty Veronica Dan DeCarlo Fashion

Betty and Veronica as drawn by Dan DeCarlo, circa 1960s.

It’s no secret I love Archie Comics and Betty and Veronica. I especially enjoy the ’60s-era Dan DeCarlo renditions of my favorite frenemies–particularly the clothes. If you look at any of DeCarlo’s comics and pinups, it’s immediately clear that he really researched the clothes of the era, and that he had definitive ideas of how Betty and Veronica should dress (for example, Betty generally wears full skirts, while Veronica–that hussy–opts for pencil skirts).

I’ve always aspired to dress like the ladies–so classic! So graphic! So I decided to have a little fun and create my own interpretation of one of their looks. I even went so far as to select affordable clothing for Betty (Nordstrom Rack!) and designer for dear Ronnie (Dolce & Gabbana!).

So how did I do?
