Known for her poodle skirts, sandy blonde curls, and innocent girl next-door demeanor, Sandy Olsen was the It girl for me growing up. I remember begging for a Pink Ladies varsity jacket as if this article of clothing was the sole item that would turn me into a confident and classy lass, belting the catchy tunes until my throat was sore, and praying that one day, I would have a hot studly Danny Zuko of my own to fawn over. This blonde bombshell was my hero, my idol, and my mentor for how to transform from a gawky tween into a badass bitch. It’s safe to say that my true girl-crush for Sandy occurred in the final scene of the movie when she appears doused in head to toe leather. This ensemble stated everything I always knew about Sandy – she was a force to be reckoned with.
As Halloween quickly approaches and we search high and low for the perfect getup, here’s the Sandy swag that will transform you from drab to fab.
Pair the MINKPINK Hit the Road Pants and Christie Bustier with the Tripp NYC Cropped Moto Jacket and Sole Boutique’s Jean Shoes for a classic. Add a bright red lip and tousle some sandy blonde curls – cigarette optional.
