Channeling: Cher Horowitz's Rad '90s Style

Sure, Contempo Casual doesn't exist anymore and it's been two decades since you've needed an extra-fuzzy (faux) fur backpack to hold your monster of a cellphone, but Clueless' Cher Horowitz is still one of the most relevant, amazing, endlessly inspiring fashion icons around (and not even sporadically!).
So, to ensure that you're never a fashion victim (or ensembly challenged, for that matter), we've rounded up some modern-day threads that Cher would totally approve of. If you're looking to take your '90s-inspired wardrobe from from a C+ to an A- (at least), click through to shop her (not-quite-virtual) closet.

These clothes pretty much speak for themselves, so we thought we'd just share a few of our all-time favorite Cher quotes.

"So okay, I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair - ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we're expected to swoon? I don't think so."
