Home / Accessories / Style Icon: Cassie from Skins

 

For the past week, I’ve been on a Skins binge and watched all 20 episodes of the UK version with the original cast. (A new cast came in for season 3 since all the old kids graduated and went off their separate ways.)  Well, I loved it! The characters were deep, complex, and very likable. Though I understand the complaint that it romanticizes drugs and alcohol without showing any real consequences. But, it’s tv after all and you really should know by now that drugs are bad and cause bad things like sadness, jail, and death. Real life isn’t like tv.

Regardless, it was nice to get a fresh fashion view from the British perspective. One of the characters, Cassie, reinvigorated my taste for whimsy with her mismatched outfits and girly getups.

“Oh…wow….lovely,” as her character would say.

I liked the UK version too much to watch the US version on MTV. I figured I would just compare the new characters to the original ones that I came to love so they don’t even stand a chance.

Have you watched the old or new version of Skins?
