9 Must-Try Summer Fashion Trends That Clueless Predicted



(Courtesy of Vogue)

As if! Say you were born the day Cluelessopened in theaters across America—July 19, 1995. You would be days out from turning 25 today, or way older than Cher, Tai, and Dionne as they strode the halls of Bronson Alcott High School.

Feel ancient now? Consider this: It is over 200 years since Jane Austen wrote Emma, on which this iconic teenage film is based. She describes her heroine as a girl “no one but myself will much like,” and introduces her in the first lines of the book as: “handsome, clever, and rich,” which kind of sums up Cherilyn “Cher” Horowitz as well. Transporting Emma’s action from an English manor house to a mansion in Beverly Hills, Clueless tells the timeless story of young matchmaking gone awry—though Austen never had Emma say, “She’s my friend because we both know what it’s like to have people be jealous of us,” as Cher explains in one of her many enlightening aperçus.

And another thing: Austen’s damsels may have muddled while clad in flimsy muslin frocks, but the outfits worn by Clueless’s heroines are far closer to our own hearts. As luck—and fashion—would have it, so many of the mainstays of Clueless are showing up again on runways, store racks, and city streets.

Happy 25th anniversary Clueless! So get out those slip dresses, slap on those chokers, cuddle up in your pastel athleisure! Then tear open a bag of Skinny Pop, crank up the air-conditioning, pay $3.99 to have Amazonstream the movie into your laptop, and spend a perfect evening in the company of Baldwins and virgins who can’t drive.

Here, our guide to the enduring fashions of Clueless.
