Hot Topic's 'Riverdale' Collection Will Let You Dress Like A South Side Serpent
In an age where nostalgia reigns, bringing the Archie comics back to life on the small screen with Riverdale has fans gasping at every turn. Characters may routinely uncover the town's greatest mysteries, but you've definitely peeped their lewks as they unmask villians. Now, you can steal them in Hot Topic's Riverdale-inspired collection (offers sizes XS-6X), and dress like the baddest River Vixen on the North Side.
The line features clothes derived from the the styles of Betty, Jughead, Veronica, Archie, Cheryl, and Josie & The Pussy Cats. In addition, there's a heavy influence of looks taken from Riverdale's South Side Serpents and the River Vixens. The line also features accessories and home decor to match your secretly hidden Riverdale posters. You're probably psyched! But who wouldn't be when these style icons are at the helm of design inspo?
Thankfully, the cast of Riverdale already wears wearable clothing and that kind of makes this collection even more dope. The line comes complete with serpent sneaks and boots, heels fit for a Lodge, and strappy cherry pumps that only Cheryl would deem appropriate for her high society self.
If you didn't feel like splurging on a costume that you couldn't wear for another year, this where everyday fashion and Halloween come together.
Here are the best picks of the collection.
