Outfit Inspiration: 90's {As-IF!} Clueless Style


One of my all-time favorite movies is Clueless.  I love the hilarious quotes, over-the-top fashion, and 90s pop culture overload that it offers.  The movie takes place in a Beverly Hills high school full of ultra privileged students, each with their own unique and excessive fashion style.  The main character, Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone), became a style icon of the 90s with her ultra-preppy schoolgirl fashion in the movie.  Her look was a complete contrast with the standard 90s grunge look that was happening at that time.  I remember being blown away by Cher's fabulous electronic spinning closet, complete with computer matching program!

Needless to say, every 90s girl wanted to be Cher, and funny enough almost 20 years later, her style is back in full force.  90s style has been inching its way back into the mainstream fashion world, and I think Cher's fun take on preppy style is the perfect way to rock the 90s look today.  Take a look at some of her most memorable fashion moments from the movie, followed by some modern updates of her outfits.

A modern update of the plaid on plaid look often worn by Cher.  Pale blush tones and minimal accessories make this look less loud, and more sophisticated.

School girl chic with button ups and preppy blazers worn over a sparkly mini!

The over-the-knee socks were one of Cher's favorite accessories!  When going for this look, keep your top half covered up so you're not over exposed!  A layered button up and sweater work perfectly, and fit in with the preppy school girl vibe!

A more minimal take on the plaid look- simple plaid skinnies and a crisp oversized blouse.

Modernize your Cher Horowitz look with a slightly longer or even midi-length plaid skirt.

 Cropped sweaters over a blousy sheer button-down are a must!

If you're brave enough you can even rock a matching plaid mini-suit!  To keep it from looking too costumey, wear modern heels and a sleek handbag!

  1. Oh I loved 'Clueless'! I love all the modern versions of the style, esp that little preppy outfit Amanda Seyfried was wearing!
