    • Red Shirt. Although is great if it has fine black stripes and flared cuffs, the main look can be achieved by wearing an orange, long-sleeved shirt.
    • Purple Dress. Your dress should hit at or slightly above the knee. Angelica's dress is slightly flared, but the vivid purple hue is most remembered.
    • Blue Tights. Your tights should be full length and royal blue in color. Create the green dots on them with lime green paint to make them really authentic looking.
    • Red Socks. Buy them a bit long so you can fold them over a few times. Even after rolling them over a bit, there should still be an inch of sock above your shoes.
    • Indigo Shoes. White Keds or a similar white shoe can be painted to match the purple in your dress. This will help you tie the entire look together.
