the girls of sam levinsons universes love tumblr fashion they love them some o mighty and american apparel esque outfits esp maddie and jules
maddie wears a very buffalo 66 type outfit in the second episode look at the silhouette and the color
layla was a very romantic character in the movie and she falls in love with an emotionally stunted man w abusive parents…sound familiar innit
the cherry dress is very nymphet tumblr sorry to say the bardot neckline the ruffles shes a tumblr girl thru and thru
jules is even more obviously a tumblr girl the anime influences tennis skirts quirky bookbags she was obsessed with electra heart and joanna kutcha
she lovessss a good tennis skirt (pre city trip at least) and these are a staple in any tumblr girls wardrobe and they’re making a huggeeeee comeback with everyone rotting in their rooms the tumblr era back with a vengeance
its also worth noting barbie was HUGE on tumblr before becoming an actress (she was a model already when she was on) and guess who she modeled for? american apparel
clearly this era of fashion and internet culture is interesting to him bc it popped up earlier in assassination nation with his main character lily using tumblr in multiple scenes his recent works were made for the tumblr generation the neon lights the quirky clothes etc
assassination nation vs a popular tumblr image
even jules and maddys halloween costumes come straight from tumblr iconography with the former as claire danes juliet and maddy as nymphet staple iris from taxi driver
both jules and maddy already have fully formed looks that can only be created thru years of archiving on tumblr jules is continuously compared to sailor moon and thats on purpose bright colors short shirts even her long blonde hair is reminiscent of anime girls
its also hard to ignore joanna kutchas influence on jules fashion shes the quintessential tumblr girl and more importantly she has longevity shes damn near 10 years in the game and still has impact and both veterans and newbies follow her
matching sets, crop tops, textured tops, mesh tops even 2021 joanna couldn’t resist coming back to her classic AA tennis skirt
its also worth noting both maddie and jules’ makeup is similar to some of joannas early intro to modeling makeup look at the pearls as liner
ill come back to this later bc im tired lol

also goths gonna be real mad at me when i say this but bc of film goth is now a fashion subculture as well as music and this has been happening consistently since the 90s with the goth character archetype metal and punk can still be considered music subcultures bc they didnt
have this shift the way goth did many goth characters dont have any outward connection with goth music like stokely from the faculty
goth became shorthand for the outcast or the loner or the weirdo it was signified by clothing slicked back hair heavy black liner/eyeshadow spiked chokers black clothing heavy boots like thwse characters rarely had anything to do with music and never even listened to it

cassie and maddy are a unit! thats why they often exist in the same color family but while cassie is girl next door maddy is the cool girl
ppl who have had best friends since childhood will often be so close they’re one person they’re indistinguishable from each other and thats normal. you shop at the same places u watch the same shows u listen to the same music bc you’ve bonded
so therefore cassie and maddy existing in the same color family is kinda obvious they just style themselves differently bc they have different motives and backgrounds

maddies new years outfit is kind of am elevated version of her carnival outfit actually shes done with nate shes looking to have a good time shes in the stage of a breakup where shes more confident than she was and is looking to provoke nate she wants everyone to see ImageImage
how hot she is without him and she kinda elevated the sexiness of the outfit the last one was a crop top w cut out pants which us more obvious and in line w what teenage girls wear to push the envelope her midriff is exposed her tops basically a bra
the cutout on the hips exposes that theres so muck skin exposed it feels obvious and it makes sense she wanted to exert her dominance over nate bc she knew he would hate it and they dyed it purple so that 1. its more visually interesting and 2. fits her color palette

sex worker fashion in media will always be interesting bc theres a clear cut difference between their civilian self and their SW self like cam did a p good job w that her everyday life is relatively safe colors and denim with hoodies and tube tops ImageImageImageImage
but shes soooo glam in her sw persona which makes sense shes putting on a show she’s basically an actress and they include more texture like lace and vinyl
the vinyl especially is a great choice bc its shiny it’s reflective you wanna touch it whereas with leather its a bit rougher its more masculine its not as visually appealing in her setup with the lights especially the light of her screen

the costume designer in me could rant about this single screencap for hours Image
like this is a great example of how what makes one person attractive does not fit the other she got the broad strokes of maddie but not the finer nuances
maddies top looks to be a single button or hoop of sum sort perfect for the fact tht she has a smaller bust and it forms around her figure nicely bc it flatters her
