Lili Reinhart Really Wants Betty To Wear Something Other Than Sweaters on 'Riverdale'

Lili Reinhart‘s Betty Cooper on Riverdale is known for her sweater sets on the show — they’re chic and classic, but honestly, the actress would like to see Betty in something else every once in a while.

“You have no idea how many times I tried to get our show runners to let me wear something other than sweaters,” she joked while speaking with People about the classic style on the show.

She adds that even getting Betty to have her hair down is a battle.

“Or wearing something different – even a dress to school, how dare I?” Lili says. “But like Camila [Mendes] said, we go with a very consistent sort of feel and our show takes place in a very short amount of time, so if something is evolving in these characters’ lives it’s not gonna be an immediate change.”

“It’s something that is gonna happen slowly over time over the course of seasons, not from one episode to another.”

Camila likes how the show is true to the comics in terms of style.

“I mean I think there’s something to embrace about how consistent they [Betty and Veronica] are and I think that’s what brings it to the comic book world, because the characters are so set in stone,” she shared. “We definitely like to explore different facets of their personality, but at the end of the day ,what makes it so nostalgic is how true to themselves they are.”
