Let’s be real. Buffy basically raised us. It’s been 20 years since the stake-wielding cheerleader first kicked ass on our screens in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and taught us the perils of demon love triangles, that the library was a legit hangout zone and how to put together a banging 90s outfit. To pay homage, here are 12 Sarah Michelle Gellar-appropes ASOS buys to channel the slayer. *mentally hums theme song*
12 things Buffy would totally buy on ASOS
By Maybelle Morgan, 10 March 2017
Lady in red
A Buffy-approved wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without one seriously rocking leather throw-on in blood red. Keep all eyes on the trophy jacket by adding some black denim and a white tee <>
A modern update on Buffy-fave spaghetti straps, this velvet peplum cami in gothy purple so reflects her Spike years. You know, dark. Make it night-out territory with black skinnies and leather mules.
Return of the mac
Yep, it wouldn’t be Buffy running through the halls to a crisis (slow-motion, ofc) without the dramatic flapping of one of her belted trench coats. Bonus: the mac is so back for SS17. Wear with straight-leg jeans and fresh white sneaks.
Cross your heart
How else to let the bad guys know your stance on the whole good/evil thing without obvious symbolic jewellery? Top tip: layer with cutesy layered silver chokers for ultimate 90s accessorising.
Hell for leather
Leather trews were never the most practical attire for high-kicks and late-night skulking, but it was the Buffy way and we trusted it. Make the retro look right for now by pairing with an oversized sweat, plus bold mules. *Adopts intimidating power stance*
If you squint hard enough, this ASOS varsity tee basically sports the Sunnydale High school logo. Wear loud and proud with mom jeans and sneaks for peak weekend wear.
Before putting in the nightwatch at the graveyard, Buffy would split her time between mates and cheerleading practice. Proof? The ability to fight demons in the miniest of A-line mini skirts (with minimal flashing). Teach us please.
Yes, most people would deem heeled boots as inappropriate footwear for doing backflips in the school gym with your local librarian (Giles <3), but="" not="" buffy.="" best="" news?="" patent="" is="" a="" sassy="" 2017="" update="" and="" so="" right="" with="" mom="" jeans="" or="" wide-leg="">3),>
No 90s imagery is more iconic than Buffy armed with a crossbow, yellow sundress and one totally amazing denim jacket. Go hard for that throwback thing in acid wash style and cropped fit.
And it doesn’t get more 90s than Buffy skulking the halls of Sunnydale High with a bruised brow in slouchy denim dungarees, a white crop top and heeled boots (aka optimum demon-fighting attire).
Think your prom was bad? Remember B fighting a trio of hellhounds and breaking up with her vamp BF, all before pouring herself a glass of punch in arguably one of the most iconic prom dresses of all time. Go copycats with this double strap maxi number for all your fancy occasions.
Back for good
Number one rule of vampire-slaying? Keep your hands-free for max damage to opponent. Case in point was Buffy’s endless supply of really chic backpacks. This one, with cutesy 90s round buckle definitely fits the bill.
