Style Icon: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

We all take style ideas from celebrities and characters in shows, whether we’re aware of it or not. An entire generation has had the “Rachel” cut, Mad Men collaborates with stores to create clothing inspired by the show, and we all cosplay characters at cons. On that note, I wanted to start taking a look at some of the Style Icons we’ve had over the years, and how we can still be influenced by them.

On Twitter, I asked for people’s fictional style icons. Interestingly, one of the overwhelming responses was for Buffy. This vampire hunter from the 90’s was a favorite of many of ours. Maybe it’s because we were growing up and discovering our own style when the show was on, or maybe it’s because she had the perfect mix of cute prep and sexy bad-ass.


Want to emulate Ms. Summers? Get close fitting tank tops. Change things up between pastels and black. And stock up on leather. Red leather pants, black leather jacket, mini skirt, whatever helps give you a bit of edge.



Is/was Buffy one of your style icons? What did you love about her style? And if not, who are your style icons?


  1. I feel like, growing up, Buffy’s style was the most relatable / attainable. she looked great in basics, and kicking ass is a pretty great way to sell clothes. Looking back, the fashions in the first three seasons were pretty bad. Too many long hippie skirts, flatform thong sandals (which oddly enough were kind of trending this passed summer), and oh…. Willow’s sweaters. :::shudders:::

    You really appreciated how much Buffy and Cordelia cared about their clothes though. Which, in a way, made you care about them.

    And let’s not forget that iconic white dress & leather jacket combo from the season 1 finale!

    Angel: “By the way, I really like your dress.”
    Buffy: “Yeah, yeah. Big hit with everyone.”

  2. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email, vampirescreed11 @ hotmail. com
