How to Dress Like Your Favorite Riverdale Character This Halloween
Calling all Riverdale fans!
Your favorite small-town crew is returning to the screen tonight for Season 2 of the CW series—which is just one more reason to channel your favorite Riverdale high schooler this Halloween. Whether you're more of a classic Archie Andrews or feeling a Betty and Veronica duet costume, we've got the complete shopping and styling guide to let your inner comic book fan shine this All Hallows' Eve.
Scroll down to find out how to dress like Riverdale's finest, and watch the premiere tonight at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
The all-American athlete, musician, and red-headed hottie, Archie has a timeless look that’s easy to put together last minute. Think James Dean’s go-to garb (jeans and a fitted white tee) with a letterman jacket thrown over it.
Riverdale’s token girl next door, Betty keeps her uniform simple and sweet with sweater sets, Peter Pan collars, and a bit of retro flair. Top it off with a sleek, perfectly curled pony, and you’re practically the town’s golden girl.
Rugged and mysterious, Jughead’s somber look is a quick fix with a washed jean jacket, dark blues and blacks and, of course, his signature beanie (note: you'll need to make this a one-time-use hat, as you'll be drawing or cutting a crown into it). To really set the scene, grab your crew’s Betty Cooper for a milkshake before the night gets started.

The quintessential cool girl, Veronica always manages to perfectly toe the line between classy and sexy (plus a whole lot of posh).
