Just when Elena (Nina Dobrev) thought she was out of those awkward teen years, now she has to deal with the awkward transitioning vampire ones! (Which, let’s be honest, could go on for centuries.)

We’ve seen her drastic change in food cravings, and now we’ll also see a changing wardrobe for the baby vampiress.

“We’re giving her a slightly more sophisticated look,” costume designer Leigh Leverett told Entertainment Weekly.

If you’re wondering what “more sophisticated” entails, think trading jeans and henleys for dresses and boots. You know, the better to hunt and suck blood. Or just look totally smoking hot.

But it’s not just her wardrobe that’s getting an upgrade, she’ll also improve in the accessories department.

“She had to wear the vervain necklace before, so she didn’t get to wear a lot of good fun jewelry,” said Leverett. “Of course [Nina Dobrev] likes that because she loves jewelry.”

We know diamonds are a girls best friend, so we’re just curious to see what kind of jewels are a vamp’s!
