MTV Style: Flashback Fashion | Sweet Valley High
Shopping 90s style inspired by the iconic Wakefield twins…
Sweet Valley High, the 90s teen show which followed the lives of twin sisters Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield in the fictional locale of Sweet Valley, California, was as blonde as the books it was based on by Francine Pascal.
This particular pair of siblings had to deal with all kinds of adventurous scrapes. Their day-to-day lives featured kidnapping, summoning ghosts of former students, falling into a coma after a joyride on a boyfriend’s motorcycle, falling in love with a Prince from a fictional land and having to fly in a prize-winning dancer from Argentina in the hopes of winning ‘The Pacific Dance’ competition after their long-time dance partner had run off to join Madonna’s entourage - so it’s understandable that these two blonde babes dressed for school with melodrama in mind.
Whether you aspire to be an Elizabeth (down-to-earth, relatable, sensible, likely to be kidnapped by your work experience colleague at your local Hospital) or see yourself more as a Jessica (zero redeeming features), you’re essentially dressing as the same person. Choose bold coloured blouses matched with fitted pencil skirts and a super cute heel to show off your great legs, and you too will be that beauty at the end of the crowded hall that everyone sings about. And when fairly dramatic hair braiding decides to consume your entire look, as it will on occasion, dress your look down Elizabeth-style with a sweet looking cardigan.
