Scooby-Doo, the American cartoon franchise, features the fun-filled adventures of four teenagers and a talking Great Dane named Scooby-Doo.
Written by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, the first ever Scooby-Doo series to be aired in television was Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, with the first episode titled “What a Night for a Knight” debuting in 1969.
Following the investigations of Mystery Inc., Scooby-Doo sees the gang ‘split up and look for clues’ surrounding all sorts of malevolent monsters, ghosts, zombies other supernatural forces, before the villain at large is unmasked.
Driving around in the psychedelic Mystery Machine, main characters Freddy, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma and Scooby each have their own iconic and imitable style. Sure enough, while the gang’s heroic (or meddlesome!) plans may inspire a younger audience at home, it’s their groovy fashion that’s resonated more throughout the years, with all the character’s 70s-inspired outfits topping any fancy dress list!
Read on for a rundown of our favourite Scooby-Doo looks, and how to work the perfect matching eyewear!
Shaggy Rogers & Scooby-Doo
The characters Shaggy and his best pal, Scooby, are probably the favorites among Scooby-Doo lovers. They’re funny, easily scared of monsters, and have an insatiable appetite for Scooby Snacks – what’s not to love?
Shaggy’s casual green v-neck T-shirt and brown bell-bottom pants (or sometimes a red v-neck paired with blue pants) serve as the best example of the gang’s classic retro fashion.
Even Scooby Doo gets in on the fun, sporting a variety of costumes for evading the monsters at crucial moments during the chase.
And for the moments when full on fancy dress isn’t as socially acceptable, Scooby’s iconic blue collar would make a perfect tag for your pet dog!
Here at SelectSpecs, we have the stylish Marc Jacobs MARC 220/S sunglasses which would be a perfect match for Shaggy’s outfit!
Fred Jones, aka Freddy, is the leader of the Mystery Inc. gang, and the driver of the Mystery Machine van.
This brave teenager has excellent leadership skills and always comes up with a plan for trapping the monsters.
Freddy follows the typical dressing style which existed during the late 60’s/early 70’s era.
The classic wardrobe of Fred features a plain white sweater which is worn over a blue shirt, along with classic blue pants and an orange ascot.
Steal Fred’s style by sporting a blue-white combo outfit, and pair it with stylish sunglasses and brown leather loafers.

Daphne Blake is well-known for her exquisite fashion-sense and undying love for make-up.
Owing to her hour-glass figure and stylish outfit, Daphne is often regarded as one of the best-dressed female cartoon characters of all time.
Her signature look features a purple dress with lavender detailing around the cuffs and waistband, paired with pink tights and a contrasting lime green scarf. Daphne’s matching purple pointed shoes and plastic headband complete the bold tonal look.

Velma Dinkley, the bespectacled genius, is an expert in collecting clues and solving mysteries.
Perhaps most recognisable for her signature thick-framed glasses, which she misplaces quite often during her adventures with Scooby and the gang, Velma’s geek chic has become iconic among glasses wearers.
Her orange-based ensemble features an oversized turtleneck sweater paired with a pleated red skirt along with knee length socks, black Mary Jane shoes, and dark-framed glasses.
Steal Velma’s geek style by using these trendy Lee Cooper LC 9061 glasses available at SelectSpecs.
