It's been 20 years and we're all still trying to recreate Cher Horowitz's Clueless wardrobe. 

Recently, as I stumbled from a burlesque show into a 90s themed nightclub (don't ask) I realized that the Clueless gals wardrobe has never been more relevant. 

Naturally, the dance floor was filled with, fluffy accessories, guys in light denim jeans and white tees giving off James Dean vibes (well hellooooooooooo) and a sea of yellow check.



Albeit, most girls there were in their late teens (sobs into coffee) and therefore had no idea about the history of their 90s look, other than the fact it was now stocked in Topshop. 

Side note: my sis and I threw a 90s party for our 25th birthday a few months back and my 18 year old cousin (who I still think of as  5 - sorry lil' G) bought his girlfriend. When she admitted she was in fact not alive in the nineties, having been born after the millennium my sis and I started knocking back the prosecco at an extra fast pace.  





Anywhoo, back to the yellow check. 

If you're wondering why the sunshine yellow print has come back in fashion, you may want to have a little peek at Versace's AW18 collection, the luxe label literally recreated Cher's plaid suit with a modern rainbow and reconstructed twist - and it was oh. so. good.

If you think about it, it was only a matter of time before the check made a comeback. 

Our wardrobe's (alas, still without the outfit choosing computer *sigh*) have literally been morphing into what the Clueless costume cupboard would of looked like. What with the blazers, berets, teeny tiny handbags, Prince of Wales check and platform shoes.

And I mean, who can say no to a flatform?

I always struggle with sandals in summer, I just can't work le sandale. Literally, the only style I ever wear are platforms because I find them more comfy, aesthetically pleasing, and just overall a lot less basic. 


 This pair from iKrush  are literally my dream sandal, thanks to the stud detail, chunky platform sole and buckle up style (I'm all about that practicality).

Lastly, another retro print (albeit, a little more vintage) that is set to be huge this spring/summer is polka dots. The 'gram is already filled to the brim with the spotty print and if it carries on this way it could even overtake our trusty summer stripes.

Groundbreaking? I think so.  

 
Should the two prints be worn together? I mean, probably not, this most likely isn't how Donatella Versace (or Cher for that matter) envisaged it. 

But hey, I like polka dots, I like yellow check. So to quote Joey from Friends (can you tell I've been binge watching it on Netflix again) "what's not to like!?" 

Check? Good. 

Polka dot? Good.  

Check-a-dot? Gooooood. 

 Clashing prints for the win guys.


 So, until next time, "I'm Outie!"

Clueless about why Cher's iconic yellow check is back?

Unless you've been living under a rock you'll know that rainbow jumpers have been dominating our Instagram feeds for the entirety of 2018. 

In fact, a rainbow jumper is pretty much one of the only things that managed to put a smile on my face on a dreary February morning - and don't even get me started about the snow - AM I RITE!?


 Anyway, as the lighter mornings (HALLELUJAH) and £1 daffodils in M&S now suggest we're heading into spring, which means you're gunna want to get those razors at the ready gals cos it's nearly time to whack out those legs.

As much as we will all attempt to wear our trusty denim skirt and favorite funny slogan tee as soon as possible,  you will soon come to the conclusion that the weather isn't quite ready for that yet. 


*Enter that awkward transitional wardrobe moment we all dread*

So, if you're wondering how to get through this awful inbetweeny phrase may I suggest the genius invention of a rainbow-jumper-dress. 


After all, who hasn't absolutely loved the nostalgia and fun wardrobe twist of the rainbow jumper trend? 


 Anyone? Raise your hand? Nope. Nobody. Didn't think so.  

   Knit Rainbow Stripe Dress by Boohoo* £20, Shop it here

With its toasty knit material it still allows you to let that spring breeze hit your pale AF (yet now smooth) legs and will also make sure you don't freeze you ta-ta's off. So, it's pretty much a win-win. 


As for footwear? You might as well invest in a pair of Dad trainers now, even if you're not fully on-board with the ugly shoe trend it's only going to get bigger and, well, uglier as the year goes on.



As I've well documented on my Instagram and YouTube ugly sneakers got my seal of approval as soon as I had a Cinderalla moment with a pair of ''Balehoiaga's''. 

Since then, I am very pleased to report that tons of high street stores have got on the bandwagon, creating their own chunky trainers that won't set you back Balenciaga's £600 price tag.  I found these on Boohoo for £22, meanwhile Topshop have a killer pair for £38.


 Now having written this post I appreciate that 'a jumper dress and trainers' really isn't - to quote Miranda Priestly - 'groundbreaking'.

However, add a dash of rainbow and a chunky trainer and you have yourself a very on-trend spring (or as we like to call it in the biz 'SS18') look. 

So, whilst I impatiently wait for the summer rays to hit my pale-ass stubbly legs this is what I will be living in.

It's been nearly a year since I wrote an article for ELLE UK about the comeback of 'uncool 90s brands'

At that time the likes of Fila, Kangol and Kappa were just sneaking back onto the streetstyle scene around fashion week. 

However, fast forward to now and they are forever being featured on cool kid Instagram accounts such as Hype Bae. 
 
In fact, it's fair to say that the demand for a pair of 90s Kappa jogger bottoms or a fluffy Kangol hat have sky rocketed - Urban Outfitters now sell both brands, along with several other noughties favorites. 

And the price tag of the throwback items are about 70% more than they were in the good ol' days. AND PEOPLE ARE STILL SNAPPING THEM UP AS QUICKLY AS BRITNEY SPEARS SHAVED HER HEAD. 

WHAT IS THIS MADNESS!!


Obviously for a lot of us 90s babies it's the sense of nostalgia and fondness that draws us back in.

Mix that with fashion week streetstyle pics of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid sporting the brands - PLUS the recognizable logo's swamping our Instagram feeds and it's very hard not to fall in love with them all over again.... a bit like when you give your ex a second chance when you realllllly shouldn't.



Moreover, whenever any 90s trend returns you know it's probably going to have a knock on effect.... so, let's also all give a warm welcome back to the teeny tiny sunglasses trend.

Oh and the bumbag...

AND crop tops that literally look like they were from our pre-adolescent when none of us had tits. AM I RIGHT?


But if you haven't guessed already I don't need any excuse to embrace the trend of my childhood so I've freaking gone and done all of them. 

NO REGRETS. 

Although, I am a bit of a thrifty b*tch so I found the Kangol hat in a vintage shop in York for £7 and the Kappa bottoms in the January sales. 


And if you recognize the trainers - they are a dupe, cost me £20-something-quid and there's a YouTube video about them here.

The sunnies were also £2 off eBay - link is in the YouTube bio JSYK;
