Plaid, Cutoffs and Florals: Your Field Guide To Dressing like a '90s Movie

The ’90s are thriving in fashion now–and what better way to celebrate than taking a look at the ’90s movies being referenced in fashion. Plaid, leather, layered necklaces, combat boots and cut-offs galore. Take a look at our ’90s refresher course:

Mad Love

Drew Barrymore and Chris O’Donnell meet, fall in love, and wear tons of plaid.

Drew Barrymore rocked the plaid menswear shirt like nobody’s business. While she was sexy wearing Chris O’Donnell’s shirt in Mad Love, Old Navy has a more feminine twist with this plaid top with roll-up sleeves ($24.50). It’s a perfect throwback to the heyday of 90s style for more. Slip into these slightly frayed cut off shorts ($149) to help complete the overall grunge look.

Reality Bites

Four young friends on a road to self discovery…in the process, we discover a glimpse of what it means to be stylish in the 90s–mainly, florals and combat boots with yellow tights.

This floral printed dress infused with a tank ($75) paired with these mustard yellow American Apparel tights ($22) will put you right back in the Gen X mood while still looking fresh and current.

These tights almost perfectly mirrors what Janeane Garofalo’s sexually-driven character is wearing in this cast shot:

The Craft

The plot for “The Craft” included dark magic and betrayal–and lots of leather jackets and layered chain  necklaces. Back in the ’90s, we would have thought  this cult classic would provide us with such sound sartorial advice 15 years after its debut.

Bonnie, played by Neve Campbell, is rocking a too-cool-for-school leather jacket during this scene above. Check out a more updated version below:

This cropped leather jacket ($423.50) has a hint of lace–and it’s 30% off. With this multiple gunmetal chain necklace ($85), you’ll be set for that levitation session with your girlfriends.
