Fashion Inspired by Awesome Teen Novels

From oldies-but-goodies like The Baby-Sitters Club and Goosebumps to relatively newer phenomena like The Hunger Games and Twilight, there's something about serial novels that never fails to excite us.

Unsurprisingly the fashion in the books is almost always a part of our obsession. Ever wonder what shoes Sweet Valley High's Elizabeth Wakefield would wear, or what the Saddle Club kids would buy to get ready to ride? We've rounded up cool, must-have items inspired by some of our favorite young adult reads.

The Hunger Games

Because what other YA series has a plotline centered around stylists?! Click through to shop the book's look.

file

Hello, fire dress.

file

A daytime alternative to aforementioned fire dress.

Effie Trinket would flip for this glittering bootie.

file

Something sporty (but still super-cute) for running around the arena.

file

A dead-ringer for Katniss' reaping-day dress, no?

file

The Baby-Sitters Club

Who's the best-dressed? Claudia or Stacey? Click through to shop the book's look.

file

Claudia Kishi was hands-down the coolest of the BSC gals (sorry, Stacey fans). With her artistic, slightly out-there taste, she'd totally love Kenzo.

file

Tomboy Kristy never left home without her trusty, perfectly broken-in sneakers. But wouldn't her favorite Converse look a billion times better jazzed up with CDG's trademark cartoon heart?

file

Bespectacled Mallory would surely be a supporter of Warby Parker's optical revolution.

file

This faded denim jacket would certainly appeal to Earth-loving California girl Dawn.

file

The Saddle Club

Because who doesn't love a horsey outfit? Click through to shop the book's look.

file

These soft, supple boots look like traditional riding footwear—without taking the whole equestrian thing too literally.

Jodhpurs can be tricky to pull off, but this sleek black pair is versatile enough to wear with just about anything.

file

The coolest showjumping-inspired jacket ever.

file

It's a stampede on a tee!

file

Twilight

Bella Swan's "everygirl" look is juxtaposed against the dark outfits of the novel's more gothic characters. Click through to shop the book's look.

file

Layered fangs and a teensy skull? Suddenly, "cute memento mori" doesn't seem like such an oxymoron.

file

Smile—you've just been bitten!

file

Blood-red lips are an obvious essential if you plan to hang with the undead.

file

Watch out—these stilettos come with sharp teeth.

file

The Boxcar Children

The serious about kids who live on a boxcar train has "old timey Americana style" down. Click through to shop the book's look.

file

If you like it then you shoulda put a railroad spike on it...

file

There's no reason you shouldn't look good while working on the railroad (all the livelong day).

file

Choo-choo.

file

Goosebumps

This horror series was funny, too. And we love fashion with a sense of humor. Click through to shop the book's look.

file

Who knew creepy-crawleys could look this cool?

file

These remind us of a yeti. In the cutest possible way.

This ring will always be watching you.

Unquestionably the most terrifying footwear specimen we've ever encountered.

Sweet Valley High

California cool was the style game in Sweet Valley. Click through to shop the book's look.

Go team!

Blues in bloom.

file

We could envision goodie-two-shoes Elizabeth in these sweet, candy-colored sneaks.

file

Meanwhile, this hot-pink dress would be right up twin sister Jessica's alley.

file

Little House on the Prairie

A Laura Ingalls Wilder-inspired prairie blouse always has a place in the fashion world. Click through to shop the book's look.

file

We've got an inkling the Ingalls clan owned tons of chambray. Like, before people even called it "chambray."

file

Mary would've paired this lace collar with everything she owned.

file

Perfect for wearing while frolicking through the Kansas fields—or pounding the pavement wherever your travels might take you.

file

Anyone willing to attend a barn raising in Rodarte would earn lifelong fashion respect from us.

file

The teen series that seemingly started it all. By the way, how "in" is Nancy's citrine dress?

file

Pretty, preppy Nancy would've had a serious thing for Carven.

file

A trench coat's a must if you're looking to get into mischief.

file

For writing down all those tricky clues—stylishly.

file

For the detective-in-training who loves to accessorize.
