We have been on the edge of our seats waiting for all of the answers to the questions we’ve had since the end of season 3.

Jughead Riverdale Halloween Costume 

Jughead's style is seemingly the complete opposite of Betty's. But hey, they say opposites attract, right? Jughead leans more towards hipster styles with an edgy flair. He's big on dark colors, sherpa jackets, and his iconic beanies.
