Heathers is one of my favorite movies. If you haven’t seen this 1988 classic, it’s a ridiculous tale of a high school girl who gets caught up with the wrong guy (or the right guy considering he’s Christian Slater) that leads her on a killing spree to get rid of the popular kids that make high school years hell.
But enough about that, let’s be honest, Heathers is largely memorable for it’s style. Along the lines of Working Girl or Desperately Seeking Susan, Heathers embodies 80s style. Blazers, shoulder pads, oversized bows, and matchy matchy ensembles, Heathers is the creme de la creme of preppy style.
Today, it’d be tough to get away with 80s silhouettes without it coming across as though it’s Halloween, but there are still some amazing preppy pieces that you can incorporate into your wardrobe for an updated look. Here are a few of my favorites:
Or if you aren’t ready to go full-on Heathers in your daily life, you can always put on your best Veronica impression for Halloween.
