Just a few days to go ‘til season three of Sex Education drops on Netflix! Based on the leaked teasers, it seems like the Moordale Secondary School students won’t be returning to the new school year with their signature colorful looks. So I took matters into my own hands and crafted these vibrant ensembles inspired by the show’s cast. Read on to see which Sex Education character is your zodiac twin, and the outfit I imagine they‘d wear on the first day back on campus!
SPOILER ALERT: The following may contain spoilers from seasons one and two of Sex Education.
At the end of season two, head boy and champion athlete Jackson ditched swimming to embrace his newfound passion for acting. Based on this development, he’ll likely swap his iconic varsity jacket for a more low-key athleisure look. An argyle polo shirt, black cap, jeans and sneakers form a get-up that captures Jackson’s ex-jock vibes with an added touch of preppiness.
Olivia has always been a queen in sporting rich jewel tones, and no doubt she’ll be upping the ante by rocking her favorite colors and floral prints in perfectly color-coordinated fashion. There’s always one piece that sticks out in Olivia’s outfits because, like a typical Leo, she puts her own spin on things with confidence!
Ola loves a trusty jeans-and-rainbow-stripe-top combo, but I envision she’d put a fresh twist in her color palette this season. I added a touch of pastel to her usually vibrant wardrobe, an idea borrowed from her girlfriend Lily. I believe your romantic partner shouldn’t affect your fashion choices, but in Ola’s case, it can be a loving gesture to pick up some of Lily’s qualities without losing any of Ola’s individual charm!
Miss Sands’s look
A good floral number never fails Miss Sands! Instead of her usual ochre and mauve tones, I picked a light blue floral dress and cherry motif-embroidered white cardigan for a freshly-back-from-summer look. Miss Sands always braids and pins her fringe to the side, so I thought it’d be a sweet touch if she wears colored hair clips for a change to match the dress.
Yes, I excluded his signature bomber, but it’s not the first time our troubled hero has been seen without his jacket. The gist of Otis’s outfit − corduroy pants, a striped sweater and socks that match the earthy color scheme − stays true to his personality, and it’s based on pieces he wore in the past two seasons.
Responsible, focused and incredibly hardworking, Viv embodies the archetypical traits of a Capricorn. Her go-to apparel emphasizes function, and when she sports print, Viv usually wears slogan-emblazoned pieces that reflect good causes or passions she cares about. I styled Viv in jeans, a white tee with a botanical print, and black canvas sneakers, along with a hoodie-and-coat combo that’ll prepare her for unpredictable British weather. The look is complete with a trusty tote bag that echoes the artwork on Viv’s T-shirt, resulting in a fuss-free yet thoughtful outfit.
Miss popular Ruby is the leader of the “Untouchables” and a queen of gossip, making her the Regina George of Moordale. A bubblegum pink pleather jacket is the perfect statement piece for her. Styled with a snug pink vest, plaid mini skirt, heels and chunky earrings, this head-turning outfit matches Ruby’s Mean Girls demeanor.
Best boi Eric is loud and proud with a sunny personality, and he has the wardrobe to match. There is no right or wrong when it comes to styling Eric – just be sure to have fun and be experimental! Clashing colors? Yes, please. Print on print? Absolutely! Silk scarf? Oui, monsieur!
Lily is recognizable for dressing in a plethora of pastel colors, eclectic prints and grandma knits, along with her signature space buns. True to Lily’s spirit, I styled her trusty butter yellow turtleneck under a sweater featuring a graphic of an idyllic pastel-colored landscape with gooses. I paired them with tonal plaid pants, floral socks and strawberry-motif sneakers for a cute yet kitschy touch. Let’s not forget to add a roomy backpack to hold Lily’s homework and artwork, plus an iridescent fanny pack to store other essentials.
From her embroidered yellow kimono to luscious silk blouse to form-fitting jumpsuit, Jean exudes an air of sultry, sensuous confidence with her effortlessly chic wardrobe choices. I went with a relatively minimal color scheme, centering the look with a sunflower yellow blazer and matching slingback heels. A geometric-print sleeveless top with a gentle V-neck and a drawstring at center front perfectly accentuates Jean’s curves when styled with a flowy satin pleated skirt. I also threw in a tote bag printed with a watercolor female form that corresponds to Jean’s passion for art.
Nothing oozes Maeve like a grungy ensemble of black denim shorts, combat boots and a snug-fitting top. A black tee studded with rhinestones and a skeletal torso graphic symbolizes Maeve’s hard-edged personality. I layered on an oversized check shirt, which features a letter M applique (M for Maeve, not Moorvale High), and added her usual silver hoop earrings and a black handbag with silverware to match.
The good-natured yet slightly ditzy Aimee can be spotted anywhere down the school corridors in her 70s-esque boot-cut jeans, heeled boots and bombshell curls. I styled the cartoon floral halter-neck top with a floral-motif denim co-ord set to match. Pointy boots are a must to tie in with Aimee’s love for western aesthetics, and I added a matching yellow buckled handbag to the mix. I also gave Aimee a My Melody photo album so she can commemorate all her friends and loved ones this school term.
