Right off the bat, the style of Riverdale's Veronica Lodge can be compared to another preppy girl that we know: Blair Waldorf. We think it's no coincidence since both ladies are from New York City's Upper East Side. However, even with the glaring similarities, there's still a distinction between their fashion choices. Veronica's is undoubtedly more sophisticated and less experimental. She also sticks to jewel-toned and monochromatic outfits. But what would happen if, in an alternate universe, Veronica Lodge decides to ditch her preppy look for a minimalistic one? Here's what we think she'd wear.
Acne Studios Ribbed merino wool turtleneck sweater, USD300; Maje Pleated plaid woven mini skirt, USD265; AEYDĒ Leandra suede ankle boots, USD385; Gucci GG Marmont quilted leather backpack, USD1,890 (net-a-porter.com)
At school settings, we often see Veronica wearing a black top paired with a plaid skirt. But as a minimalist, we'd think she would go for a simple grey plaid skirt instead of those with eye-catching checks and houndstooth pattern. As for accessories, she will likely still sport a designer bag but it's not gonna be a pretty little handbag anymore, instead, she'll opt for an understated backpack with a monogram.

Theory stretch-knit peplum top, USD255; REDValentino cady shorts, USD450; Rupert Sanderson Aurora suede slingback sandals, USD695; Calvin Klein 205W39NYC leather shoulder bag, USD1,950 (net-a-porter.com)
Veronica is the kind of gal who will wear heels even if she's just gonna have a milkshake at Pop's and we don't think that would change if she'd go the minimalist route. However, instead of a satin halter top and plaid skirt, we imagine she would sport a crisp white top with a subtle peplum design matched with elegant cady shorts.
