Character Study: Alicia Silverstone in Clueless


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.
