We’ve also seen shades of Buffy on the catwalks. Tons of street style stars during Fashion Month appeared to be students at Sunnydale High School (the show’s backdrop). Take Julia Fox, who rocked head-to-toe leather looks all month long; one of our favorite ensembles was at the Versace show, when she showed up in a strappy look with a PVC skirt and crop top. It’s just cries Vampire slayer. (Although it’s admittedly more racy than what Gellar wore on the show). In a Balenciaga leather racing jacket and ankle boots, Kim Kardashian also looked like Buffy, if she had an unlimited allowance.
But it’s not just about tough leathers. As much as Buffy is a fighter, she’s also sweet and has a big heart. As such, she’s also had some lighter feminine fashion moments. When she’s not killing vampires, she’s busy attending her high school dances or shopping at the mall like an ordinary teenager. On the show, she was seen wearing skin-tight briefs or sequined tank tops. This debut aesthetic couldn’t be trendier right now, thanks to labels like Blumarine, Versace and Miu Miu revitalizing the look. Browsing through Anna Sui’s Fall 2022 collection, I could instantly imagine Buffy heading to class in Sui’s floral dress, complete with a cropped pink jacket with faux fur trim. (Buffy is a big coat girl.) While it’s doubtful all of these designers have pinned Buffy on their seasonal mood boards, there’s no denying that Buffy’s fashion tastes continue to persist and resonate. always fresh. That, or everyone’s secret Buffy fanatics. Same!
