Riverdale's Camila Mendes Says Veronica Lodge Is 'Way More Dressy' Than She Will Ever Be

Riverdale‘s Veronica Lodge is the textbook (or yearbook) definition of “Best Dressed”…always.

However, while we all agree that actress Camila Mendes is always on point with her style, she’ll probably never dress like Veronica Lodge outside of the set.

“Veronica is way more dressy than I will ever be!” she says in a new interview with Racked. “I’m more laid-back; the less I have to think about my outfits, the better. I prefer to have a bunch of classic pieces I can mix and match, and just keep it simple with minimal jewelry.”

She’s so minimal that every month she cleanses her closet of everything she doesn’t wear enough.

“I’m such a minimalist that I do this monthly closet cleanse where I get rid of everything that I know I’m not wearing enough,” Camila says. “Really — every month!”

She continues, “I take a lot of time going through my closet and getting rid of things, because I don’t like having excess anything. I find it overwhelming. I love the idea of everything in your closet making you happy, so you’re getting full use out of your clothes.”

However, there is one thing that Camila would splurge on all the time: “Definitely denim — I have way too many pairs of jeans.”

“Also, turtlenecks! I love wearing jeans with a turtleneck. It’s just so sophisticated and comfortable.”
