"Clueless" Turns 18: How to Dress Like Cher Horowitz

In the voice of Cher Horowitz: “Old people movies can be so sweet.”

And Clueless? Clueless is officially an old movie. 18 years old, to be exact.

It Clueless were a person, it would be a legal adult — which means we can use words like “retro” and “vintage” to reference the iconic fashion and quotes from the cult-classic 90s hit.

If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic for the plaid mini skirts and fur-topped pens, here are 20+ ways to recreate your favorite Clueless fashions — whether you’re a Cher, Dionne, or Tai. And to bring back the feel of the movie, we’ve included some of the most iconic Clueless quotes…
