You guys, I missed Clueless day and I’m kind of upset about it. I know, I know, another made-up holiday. Usually I’m like “National Foot Long Hot Dog day? No thanks.” But Clueless day is my kind of day. Clueless is pretty much my favorite 90’s movie of all time. I was obsessed with it from the time I was allowed to watch it (yes, it was too scandalous for my childhood!) until basically now. Alicia Silverstone as Cher Horowitz was the kind of cool high school girl I aspired to be. Also, I’m pretty sure I’m still not over 1995 Paul Rudd. Clueless Day is July 19th, the day that the movie was first released in theaters. So, just about a month later, I decided to have some Clueless-inspired nineties nostalgia by layering up my favorite slip dress.
I’ll admit, my nineties style was more leggings and over sized shirts than slip dresses. Chalk that one up to being under thirteen for all of the nineties. But the great thing is that now I can not only wear slip dresses but buy as many as I want! How’s that for nineties nostalgia? I love trying out a little throwback style for Clueless day. It shows just another way that you can make summer styles work for fall. Layering a t-shirt, short sleeve or long, gives that simple dress a little life past Labor Day.
Even though I’m an eighties baby, my childhood was all things nineties. It makes me feel incredibly old when I see that college kids are throwing 90’s themed parties. Anyone else remember when the 80’s were the cool, nostalgic, can’t-imagine-living-in-that-crazy-time theme?!? Lucky for them, nineties nostalgia is here and it’s STRONG. Besides layering your slip dress over a tee, there are tons of other ways to get a touch of that 90’s in your step.
High waist mom jeans and a black tee
If Cameron Diaz did it, it must be the thing. Pair it with voluminous, messy hair and you’re a 90’s goddess.
Light wash overalls and stripes
What good 90’s child didn’t have a pair of overalls in her closet? You’re in luck because the 90’s overalls trend is back and better than ever. Even if you didn’t save your overalls (I told Mom to pack them away but…), there are so many good options to choose from now. Want to up your nineties nostalgia? Pair them with a crop top. How 90’s is that?
The good ol’ Canadian tuxedo
What was amazing about the 90’s was that they basically looked at every fashion mistake and said, let’s do this thing! A few years ago the denim on denim trend was a total no-no. But now it’s time to pull out your jean jacket and some light wash jeans. For that real nineties nostalgia, borrow your local burly lumberjack’s big jacket and tie a flannel shirt around your waist. Nirvana on repeat is not necessary but encouraged.
