Nineties style has returned in a big way! The Tab takes a look at the popular teen chick flick Clueless for a little wardrobe inspiration; carefully assisting you in achieving that Cher Horowitz look. 

“Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex” – needless to say, Clueless certainly dispensed a great deal of life advice throughout its three years of airtime.

For all it lacked in helpful life lessons, it more than made up for in amazing displays of nineties fashion.

Tartan

As we all know, tartan is a key trend this season. Team up an A-line, or pleated, tartan skirt with a big comfy knit and oversize coat. For evening, more club appropriate wear, throw on a crop top to achieve that grungy look.

Fluff

Time to get hairy! Add a little texture to your outfit by adding a cosy furry jumper.  Pair up your favourite jeans and chunky black boots for a look perfect for a casual campus day.  Alternatively, fashion with some statement trousers for a great evening outfit.

The Cami Dress

Winter formals are soon approaching so stand out from the crowd in a classic cami dress. Bring the outfit together with a pair of statement wedges or heels- a simple clutch and a beautiful necklace will ensure a stylish outfit conclusion.

Monochrome

Black and white is a safe yet classy option; you can never really go wrong with it. Jacquard or geo-print high-waist skirts worn with simple tops both flatter and complete this look.

Velvet

Winter is prime time for the re-appearance of velvet. This season deep red, blues and greens will be parading high streets everywhere. Whether a statement skater skirt or a flattering dress for evening cocktails, velvet can be easily worn with other cool textures and fabrics such a lace.

Chiffon shirts & Mesh Tops 

Sports shirts and fishnet tops all encompass the recent American trend. Chuck on a mesh vest over a plain tee and strut your stuff in your favourite pair of kicks.  Create a boyfriend preppy image by layering jumpers and shirts together with simple skirts and trousers. Finish off the look with girly hair ribbons and bows to ensure a finishing feminine touch.
