Character Study: Alicia Silverstone in Clueless

Add a comment

Character study allows us to put together modern looks based on characters (real and imagined) that have captured the sartorial aspirations of friends, readers, and colleagues.

This week I study: Alicia Silverstone in Clueless (1995).

“As girls growing up in the ‘90s so often were, I was obsessed with the movie, Clueless. Alicia Silverstone’s character Cher Horowitz, really had an impact of my childhood style. Going to a preparatory school, I had a uniform that I had to wear. The dress code never stopped or hindered my undying desire to dress just like Cher. I would embellish my outfit anyway I could. Of course that included wearing knee high socks with my plaid skirt. I would buy hair clips and cute fuzzy accessories just like her. Marked by her preppy, girly, and sexy style, Cher was my style icon.” Take a look at the photo above for a modern take of Cher’s not so clueless style. Designers include: Giada Forte, Maiyet, Dries Van Noten, and Chloé.
