Clueless | How To Channel Your Inner Cher Horowitz

Clueless Cher Hororwitz Inspired Fashion Outfit
I'm ready.  I was born ready.  That's right... Cher Horowitz, I'm coming for your tiara!  Seriously though, there's something drop dead gorgeous about her style.  Something so special, in fact, it's been trending for the past few months and I'm really hoping it'll stick around for a little while longer.  Clueless is one of those films that see us all tweet frantically about those '90s feel-good chick flicks', y'know?  It's attracted a cult following, for certain.  And sure, Cher has a lot of fabulous traits going for her, but above all else?  It's the fashion.  The check prints and yellow plaid, the mini skirts, the beret and the knee-high socks.  Swoon.  I'm still obsessing over it.  The question is, how to bring it into your wardrobe for this time of year (and this century)?!

The easiest way to get the look, is to head for the cute jacket and skirt combos.  More to the point, track down the shortest skirt you possibly can.  If that proves difficult, simply opt for a smaller size and wear it higher up the waist (as opposed to the hips).  You get bonus points for check prints and/or tweed, and even more if you layer a flamboyant blouse or shirt underneath.  Karen Millen's Super Frill shirt has forever remained one of my best purchases; the oversized pussybow and frilled shoulders add so much to a look.  In fact, I plan on wearing it to an event tomorrow night as well!  This tweed suit ticks all of the right boxes for me; matchy-matchy mini skirt and fitted blazer, as well as a subtle blue stitching running through the black and white design.  It makes all the difference when shown in motion.  I wish it had a slightly more luxurious lining, but it's still a steal from H&M!

Moving on to accessories, I've definitely been making the most of the opportunity to wear berets lately.  It's about to get warmer (do you think if I say that, the weather will listen?) and so now is the time to fully embrace Cher Horowitz' personal style!  Although truth be told, I'll probably just sweat in them straight through Spring because, you know, fashion.  Knee-high socks are another fabulous way of channelling the Clueless vibes.  They tend to divide people and personally, I sit on the fence.  For this look, I've opted for OTK boots, because it's pretty much the 21st-century's answer to Cher's white knee-high socks.

  2. I adore Clueless, but never took fashion inspiration from Cher. And probably never will, as short short skirts are not made for me.

  3. I love those Channel-type suits, they're so stylish. And you look fabulous !!!
    The photos are beautiful!!

  4. Awwww this article and this contemporay interpretation of Cher is genius Gabrielle! Love everything about this outfit, the white blouse, the blazer and skirt set, the boots and how the edge of the sunnies contrasts it all. Gorgeous background as always too! Hope you're having a lovely week! x

  5. A very chic suit! Perfect for wandering around Paris.. or any other place! :)

    Love those boots too! :)

  7. Such a pretty Clueless look, love the movie, I happened to watch it again last week. Love this plaid suit, you rock it babe!

  8. You have perfectly channeled Cher Horowitz in this chic little plaid suit Gabrielle! Clueless was such a great modern adaption of Jane Austen's Emma!

  9. You totally nailed this look! I love that skirt suit!

  10. I remember how crazy I was about Clueless when it first came out. I've always loved anything plaid/tartan/checkered so that legendary outfit of hers really struck a cord with me. Her style in that film is fabulous, isn't it?!

    I don't wear mini skirts often, I do wear a lot of skirts that are above the knee but not a typical mini (because that just above the knee length is very practical & always appropriate), but there is nothing wrong with rocking a mini skirt.

    I do plan to be wearing more mini skirts this Spring. I love your tips for finding a mini skirt, a size smaller is sometimes the way to go...also by wearing our skirts higher at waist we can turn them into mini skirts. Great tips.

    You look dreamy! This Cher inspired look is so classy! I love how you reinterpreted it and made it more your own. Flawless styling.

  11. Clueless is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again without getting bored of it. I must say that you did an amazing job channeling Cher. Everything from the plaid suit to the beret. This look is just perfection!

  37. I love check prints, they are so classy and timeless. your suit reminds me of Chanel. you look fabulous!

  38. YES. Everything about this is yes upon yes. I love mini skirts because I'm only 5'2 so they make it seem like my legs are far longer than they are haha. I don't think I nail it QUITE as well as you do though. And Clueless will forever be a cult favorite. Ben had the biggest crush on Stacey Dash in the world. He also though that Mariah Carey was singing to him personally when he was younger so... We'll let him dream ;).
    Bring on spring!
