When thinking of our ultimate ‘90s style icons, megababe Alicia Silverstone would have to be up there. In the decade we love most for its trends, this fearless fashionista was doing it all: crop tops, spaghetti straps and choker necklaces were but a few of the looks she showcased. This original ‘90s trendsetter stole our hearts and heavily influenced our wardrobes (not gonna lie,we spent far too long front of the mirror trying to perfect that butterfly clip look…). Now the ‘90s is back in full force we’re looking back at some of our favourite Alicia looks for some serious ’90s style inspo!
Although we know her best for her role in Clueless, Alicia Silverstone starred in numerous TV commercials and films before the teen hit, even making an appearance in three Aerosmith music videos! Her role as a rebellious teen in the 1993 film, The Crush, propelled her into the limelight, earning her a MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance. But we think her character’s style deserved an award of its own- we loved her tie-front cropped shirt and high-waisted skirt combo, not to mention those seriously funky sunnies. So much attitude!
Cult film, Clueless, was an amazing reflection of the times, proving that anything was possible when it came to fashion in the ‘90s. Crazy hats, garish colours, bare midriffs and mad accessories (Who could forget that outrageous yellow tartan two piece) were all commonplace, and since Cher was obviously the coolest girl in school, it meant that it was totally fine for us to go nuts with all of that too! To this day we’re still lusting after that huge wardrobe… sighhh…
There’s no denying that Miss Silverstone’s style packed as much of a punch as her late ‘90s Batgirl role in the incredibly cheesy classic, Batman and Robin. If, like us, you can’t get enough of her uber fun and eclectic fashion sense, steal her style with the Annie A Line Mini Skirt, Lulu Metallic Mesh Long Sleeved Top, Buttercup Fluffy Cropped Sweater, Dia Turtleneck Dress and Slip Cami Crop.
