Geek Fashion Fix | Fictional Style Icon: Cher Horowitz
Over two decades later, Clueless still serves some of the most iconic fashion in film to date. Alicia Silverstone herself said she had to endure somewhere around 67 outfit changes, and it wasn’t until Clueless was released that she was the importance of fashion in the film.
Revisiting Clueless as an adult often brings countless realizations of innuendo and literary allusions that went straight over my head all those years ago, but upon a recent viewing, something about Cher’s classic 90’s girl fashion stood out to me.
Of course, Cher’s colorful, preppy-chic style always stood out to begin with, but there was one thing I couldn’t help but notice during my last rewatch: nearly everything she wears throughout the entirety of the film has been a trend in the past few years.
Don’t believe me? Take a dive into your own closet or reflect on what you’ve seen in stores lately. Did you find...
Athleisure? (Seriously, is this a still from a 90's movie or the next Fenty x Puma shoot?)
Button down skirts?
Everyone’s favorite shade of millennial pink? (Tell me that ribbed tank doesn't look like it belongs on an American Apparel mannequin.)
Over-the-knee-socks? Plaid everything?
The creators of Clueless didn’t just create a style icon— they created a fashion psychic that rocks a plaid miniskirt like no other.
If you want to take a stroll down nostalgia lane and into Cher's closet, you can rewatch Clueless for the millionth time on Encore, or rent it on Amazon Video.
