You don’t typically think of Buffy Fashion when you hear the word fashion, I know. One show that really spoke to me in my teenage years, and still means as much to me today, is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My first binge-watching experience was Buffy. I wanted to dress like Buffy. I cried with Buffy. I was really more of a Willow myself but Buffy, the show, really meant a lot to me. I can’t believe that this March 10th, Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be 20 years old!
Each of the Scoobys had his or her own challenges, strengths, and growth throughout the seasons. One thing that was not great about Buffy was the fashion. I mean it was the late 90’s but…man that show had some awkward fashion. It was really hard to pin down each character’s fashion style precisely but I decided to focus on the original Scoobys (Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Cordelia) and their Season One looks.
Buffy typically wore miniskirts with a white or black top, and knee high boots. Alternatively she would often wear tank tops and leather pants. Always heels. Best shoes for fighting vampires.

Willow’s style was very eccentric. Typically she wore oversized loud sweaters, floral print skirts, tights, and sneakers. She was also often seen wearing jumpers or overalls. Willow’s fashion was actually pretty similar to how I dressed in middle school/Junior High. Those were very awkward years…

Xander’s style you could describe as “Nerdy Old Man” chic. He typically wore some kind of printed button up shirt over a t-shirt, and plaid or corduroy pants with skater sneakers. ICYMI I actually met Nicholas Brendan at VTCC 2015!
Cordelia’s style was very label oriented. You would never catch Cordelia seeing the softer side of Sears. Cordelia’s style was very similar to Buffy’s but slightly more preppy. She often wore turtleneck or mock neck sweaters and skirts. Sometimes she would even tie a sweater around her shoulders. And remember those black chunky heels we all wore in the 90’s?
