Style Lessons to Learn from Heathers: The 30th Anniversary Edition
Well fuck me gently with a chainshaw, it's been three decades...
Thirty years, you say, way to make a gal feel old. It seems like only yesterday that the OG mean girls movie came out, and changed our appreciation for shoulder pads and scrunchies forever. Preppy fashion done in the only acceptable way, the Heathers trio sure know how to keep things classy on the outside. Shame they couldn’t tell their mouths and attitudes. It’s 80s power dressing on teen brats, so what’s not to love. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the cult movie’s release, we’re taking our Spring style lessons from the three Heather’s, our girl Veronica (Winona Ryder) and the bad bad boy J.D., played by a baby-faced Christian Slater. Talk about dream team. So put those curlers in and dig out your very best vintage pieces, oh and you better get your sassy shade at the ready.
stick to your assigned colour palette
Even if you’re a Heather, you’ve got to stick to your lane: think block colours this spring. Nothing like head-to-toe canary yellow for Easter Sunday.
arch your brows to keep that unimpressed expression permanent
“If you were happy every day of your life, you wouldn't be a human. You'd be a game show host.” - Veronica
pinafores and broaches don’t have to be boring
Veronica sure knows how to work an off-the-shoulder: nothing like a flash of alabaster skin to keep a high waisted suspender pinafore fresh. Team it with your grandma’s broach and you’ve got a clashing look perfect for your split-identity relationship.
perms and pearly whites show them whos boss
What’s a power suit without the primped perm to match? If your cascading curls aren’t bouncing off your shoulder pads then who’s going to care about what bitchy comeback you’ve got planned? Please.
