Fashion trends come and go. And there are usually certain trends that define a specific decade or era but it is highly possible for these trends to come back several years or decades late such as chokers, brown lippies, goth-inspired slip dresses, track pants, chunky sneakers, and denim jumpers, etc. You can see people of all age and sizes wearing these trends everywhere. But like any fashion statement, they come at a price. After all, it is highly unlikely (although possible) for you to still fit in your old 90s ensemble, so prepare to spend a few dollars to keep up with these trends.
You also have to update your wardrobe as the season changes. With summer at its peak now, know what clothes or fashion style is in to stay fashionable despite the hot and humid temperature. Expect to wear a lot of comfortable and flowy materials that allow your skin to breathe in spite of the heat. You’ll likely be seeing a lot of people wearing short shorts and skirts or dresses and trendy sleeveless and short-sleeved tops that shout summer even from a far.
As if! Say you were born the day Clueless opened in theaters across America—July 19, 1995. You would be 22 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 Beverley 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 Cluelessare showing up again on runways, store racks, and city streets.
Happy 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 Amazon stream the movie into your laptop, and spend a perfect evening in the company of Baldwins and virgins who can’t drive.

The heat can be unbearable and it helps to wear these types of clothing especially when staying long hours outdoor.
