Veronica

Veronica Lodge has a glam, ’40s noir look to her style that’s as edgy as it is elegant. LBH: Not many teens want to rock a pearl necklace night and day. More into dresses and skirts than her BFF, Betty, Veronica’s silhouette is ultra-sophisticated, and rooted in dark colors and jewel tones.
