We all remember what Iggy Azalea did for our fave nineties teen flick (who could forget the ‘Fancy’ film clip, complete with that yellow chequered skirt suit set and feathered pen?!).

But that was so four years ago.

This time around, it’s a little more edgy, a little more modern. Think pink checks, blocks of white, tiny sunnies and bare midriffs.

5 Clueless trends that have had a major comeback

We all remember what Iggy Azalea did for our fave nineties teen flick (who could forget the ‘Fancy’ film clip, complete with that yellow chequered skirt suit set and feathered pen?!).

But that was so four years ago.

This time around, it’s a little more edgy, a little more modern. Think pink checks, blocks of white, tiny sunnies and bare midriffs.

We’re showing you exactly how to translate the main trends for real life…

Inject some checks

This is the ultimate Clueless trend, obviously. Now, you can go super bright with your pinks, purples and yellows - you want to go complete matchy-matchy with your jacket and skirt or pants if you’re doing both so it’s a set.

Or if you’re not ready for that, grey and black checks are very in right now in oversized shapes. The fabric is perfect for the cooler months - so cosy.

Keep everything else pretty simple by pairing with a white top and strappy heels.

The more lycra the better

It’s about wearing your athleisure for, well, leisure. Go for bike shorts in any length.

Wear crop tops or a tee that bares your midriff under an oversized blazer. Or just put a white tee under a black sports singlet.

Wear with chunky sneakers and even chunkier socks. You know, like the ones your dad would wear and the Kardashians are obsessed with.

Black sunnies and a tiny shoulder strap bag are the ultimate accessories.

Make it preppy

So we’re talking knitted jumpers, and that signature Clueless an A-line houndstood mini skirt.

Make it feel modern with your accessories.

So you might want to add a beret, knee-high boots like all the bloggers are wearing, and a little shoulder-sling bag in a modern vibe.

Tie it all together with similar tones.

Slip dresses are the best

We’ve been saying it for a while, but if you haven’t embraced the slip dress yet, now’s the time to get on board.

It’s all about the spaghetti straps and silky silhouette in one block colour if you wanna get those influencer vibes. Go bold with red or stick to classic black with a tee thrown underneath if you want more casual vibes.

This look goes so well with some bright sneakers or sporty slides too.

Or if you really want to commit, wear Mary Jane heels and a fluffy coat or scarf.
