TUESDAY TRIBUTE: DARIA

Daria is a highly recognizable cartoon that was a spin-off from the Beavis and Butt-head series. The show focuses on a smart, cynical, somewhat misanthropic teenage girl who is in constant criticism of popular culture and social classes. The popularity and loyalty is largely specific to a certain generation and within, there is no mistaking the iconic style of Daria (as well as other characters.) Her uniform – which consist of a green army jacket, rusty-orange colored tank, school uniform skirt, round framed glasses and of course, the military lace-up boots – emphasizes her jaded persona. The perfect juxtaposition to the typical suburban American High School that got you thinking.
