When your favorite River Vixens aren’t cheering on their team they serve stylish looks in the halls of Riverdale High. Their iconic fashion choices are definitely ones to copy this Halloween. And while you could DIY a Riverdale cheerleader Halloween costume, you can also copy Betty Cooper’s and Veronica Lodge’s everyday wear and DIY your own Riverdale Betty and Veronica Halloween costumes. Plus, these pieces also make for new go-to staples for your fall wardrobe. You can create the most stylish Betty and Veronica from Riverdale Halloween costumes this year with just a few simple clothing items and accessories. One thing’s for sure, these looks definitely can create an amazing costume this season. So, let’s jump right into how to DIY your Riverdale costume before Oct. 31 hits (it’s going to come sooner than you expect!)

Betty Cooper Riverdale costume: 

Betty Cooper is often seen wearing pastel colors, commonly light pinks, when she’s not donning her cheerleading uniform. Luckily, there is an affordable way you can copy Betty’s preppy style. This pink pullover sweater is perfect for your Betty costume and will cost you less than $17.

To achieve her ultimate preppy style, Betty often pairs her sweaters with a collared shirt. While you could really wear any collared shirt or even a collared necklace with your sweater, this crisp white button down does the trick. Plus, it’s only $12.99–you can’t beat that, right?

Next, onto some black skinnies. We could all use another pair of go-to black skinnies for fall this year. And chances are, your favorite pair from last year have already faded. Forever 21 offers an affordable option with this pair of jeans for under $20.

Last but not least, let’s talk shoes. Thankfully, Charlotte Russe is currently having a sale on their shoes and you can snag these booties for just $25. The block heel and cushioned insole will also make them super comfortable, so you can wear them all night long on Halloween.

Veronica Lodge Riverdale costume: 

Veronica still sticks to dresses and skirts even when she’s not cheering. Although her style is feminine, she tends to choose dark neutral colors for her everyday outfits. This short sleeve scoop neck dress in navy blue is perfect for DIYing your own Veronica costume. Plus, it’s a simple basic piece that would make a good addition to your closet.

Whether it’s a statement necklace or a strand of pearls, Veronica certainly knows how to accessorize. Even though her clothes are typically simple, she loves to spice her outfits up with some glitz and glam jewelry pieces. You can either dig out one of your favorite statement necklaces or opt for this one from Forever 21 for less than $10.

Forever 21 Floral Statement Necklace ($9.90)

Charlotte Russe has another pair of booties that are perfect whether you want to dress up as Veronica alone, or with a friend as a Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge duo costume. These black booties are also just $25 and flawlessly finish off your costume. We also recommend pairing these booties and your dress with a pair of tights if Halloween falls on a chilly night.
