Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Wonder Girl (Back-to-School Series)Posted: August 23, 2012
Cassie Sandsmark is my favourite of the Wonders. While Wonder Woman is the icon and Donna Troy’s Wonder Girl preceded her by thirty years, Cassie is the Wonder Girl I personally connect with.
And this outfit has a lot to do with it. I love its silly nineties earnestness.
1. Thing is, you could get away with wearing basically ALL of Cassie’s super-outfits as school clothes. She wears variations on jeans and a Wonder tee and as you see in the picture, her bracer-bracelets and star earrings exist for you to buy. The bag I chose based on her character rather than matching anything in her design (and I have to say, I love it).
2. While Cassie’s jacket is more a cropped black denim, I like the H&M jacket a lot. I can imagine someone adding a Young Justice or Teen Titans patch to make it a proper team jacket. I also chose biker goggles over a more steampunk version, but if you want those there are many to choose from on Etsy.
3. As a daughter of Zeus, of course Cassie wears Nike sneakers. I’m a big fan of mixing and layering jewelry so I might wear the black string choker and “lasso” gold chains together, but all of the jewelry can be worn together or separately depending on taste and achieve the same ideas.
