I’ve been wanting to start a series where I construct outfits based on characters that are sartorially inspiring. This is the first post in my Style Icon series!
If you couldn’t tell by now, I adore Ramona Flowers from the Scott Pilgrim series. Aside from being a wonderful character, she also has mad style. So, if you’ve ever wanted to possess Ramona Flowers’ style, look no further! I’ll talk about some elements of Ramona’s style and then show some example outfits I put together.
Ramona Flowers’ Signature Style
Bright hair and bold colors
Ramona Flowers is known for her rapidly changing hair colors and hair cuts — anything from hot pink to bright blue to teal. If you want to try out being Ramona for a day, try a wig (either from Ebay or my personal favorite, Arda Wigs). If you are looking for a bolder everyday look, Manic Panic hair color is the way to go!
Ramona also coordinates her current hair color with her outfit, so be sure to match your hair to your clothes!
Interesting jackets, boots, and layers
Living in Canada, jackets, boots, and layering are utilitarian, but Ramona has exceptionally cute items! From military to leather, Ramona is always rocking an adorable coat, and she has an enviable boot collection. Combined with her innate sense of layering, Ramona’s outfits are always complex and interesting to look at.
Unique tights and socks
Ramona is always seen with a small black choker necklace (revealed by actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead to be her deceased brother’s shoelaces). Ramona also loves stars, and the motif appears on her subspace purse as well as in hair accessories and on a ring she wears occasionally. Choose your own signature motif and incorporate it into your outfits.
Jacket | Shorts | Similar Tights | Button
This outfit is a reimagining of the olive green shirt dress that Mary Elizabeth Winstead wears in the movie version. To keep the same utilitarian feel, I chose a bold military-style jacket as the focal piece for the look. To keep it comfy and casual, layer a soft grey hoodie and a denim skirt with plain black leggings and worn-in black boots. Complete the look with your subspace purse. Although Ramona never has pure white hair in the comics or movie, I think it would be a fun change and it fits nicely with this outfit. This is the perfect outfit for going out and running into an ex (or two!).
