How To Get The Looks From The Most Iconic ’90s Movies
by More.com Editors
From teen witches to Beverly Hills high schoolers, we’ve rounded up the best ’90s heroine looks you’ll need to nab now.
Ahh, the ’90s. The days, where chokers and platforms ruled the day. And as much as we look back at the decade that is so rich in fashion inspiration, we can’t help but notice the runways and street style mavens are picking right back up as though we never left the ’90s to begin with. From Cameron Diaz in There’s Something About Mary to Alicia Silverstone in Clueless, these icons have remained in our fashion memory — and wardrobe.
We pulled together looks inspired by six of your favorite ’90s flicks to give you a decade’s worth of fashion inspiration you’ve been hoping for.
Cher is without a doubt one of the most iconic ladies in film. This time around, we pulled from an outfit that’s not the badass yellow plaid ensemble that she’s most known for. Yet, the sparkly sweater and dainty jewelry worn in this scene are a dream. Pair a similar-styled sweater with some ankle booties and a patched denim skirt for a 2016 revival on her classic look. You sure won’t hear Cher saying, “Ugh, as if!”
Our favorite teen witches had the best combination of grunge and glam. With the grunge-y resurgence on the runway, this film creates the exact looks we were looking for. Tying in ’90s-inspired creepers, a plaid skirt, and the ever-necessary choker, this look is as creepy as it is cool.
10 Things I Hate About You
Talk about a throwback to the high school days when crop tops and platform sandals were EVERYTHING. We love Kat’s uber adorable sweater + patterned denim combo, and it’s the easiest thing to rock this year. Throw on some glitz and glam, and it’ll feel like you’re walking into Padua High School with Cameron James and the like.
There’s Something About Mary
This rom com starred Cameron Diaz, one of the decade’s biggest style icons. (Heck, she’s still a style icon in my honest opinion.) While it was nearly impossible to pick out one outfit that perfectly sums up the film’s vibe (and we really wanted to include those infamous bangs), the easy breezy striped top is the easiest pick for a look that really is just something about Mary.
Never Been Kissed
This late ’90s movie fave starred the darling Drew Barrymore as Josie Geller, and we couldn’t get enough of her adorably endearing character. This look doesn’t involve anything to complicated — throw on a tee, sweater or jacket and a pair of jeans. Bam — that’s it! Now where’s the dreamy English teacher…
Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion
These ladies are the essence of ’90s style. If you’ve ever wanted to pick up a shimmery dress after seeing this movie, then you’re not alone. We found these gorgeous options online, and we are obsessed. Now all we need is an excuse to wear one of these rad dresses out.
