The movie Clueless came out when I was 5 years old. Due to amply protective parents, I didn’t see it for several years (this is a good thing), but when I did, it was my coming of age film. Cher, Dionne and Tai were my heroes, each for different reasons. Cher is innocently glamorous and made me envy every blonde headed girl ever born. Dionne is sassy and her fights with Murray probably sculpted (not good) my relationships all through high school. Tai was awkward and nerdy and I loved everything about her hair and wardrobe. The girls in Clueless, well they sculpted who I am just as much as the Spice Girls, Mean Girls, The Goonies and Savage Garden (I’m not a gay man, I swear).
Leave it to my long time love, Wildfox to blow me away with their sexy granny shoot (F/W ’13) and bring me a bangin’ new Clueless themed lookbook. If they do Spice Girls next, I’ll die happy. In the meantime, THE 90S ARE BACK GUYS.
Don’t tell me you haven’t seen it. Alexa Chung has been spotted wearing denim overalls and oversized sweaters are a hit this season. Next thing you know, it’s going to be scrunchies and thigh high black boots again. I’m not complaining, are you?
Who were your childhood influences and which 90s trends are you most excited for?!
