About this deal

The minimalist, grunge, designer, sportswear, hip hop and preppy looks are most remembered styles from the era, establishing western fashion's permanent shift toward everyday casual style. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. Played by Alicia Silverstone, Cher floats from scene to scene in the best of the decade — plaid, crop tops, slip dresses, the list goes on. Creating Halloween costumes and outfits dates back to when I was 12 years old and my aunt bought me a hand sewing kit.

Late designer Azzedine Alaïa was certainly well-known in fashion before Clueless, but the film made him a household name. The white pullover tank top features sweater panels attached at side and shoulder seams to complete the ensemble. What I actually did was I followed the pattern of the plaid and used my better judgement on the size of the pleats. In 2017, Silverstone even rewore the look herself on an episode of Lip Sync Battle, when she performed Iggy Azalea's "Fancy.So we start to try the clothes on – there were 60 changes for Alicia so that’s a lot of clothes to try – but for that particular scene we wanted to try suits and we wanted to do plaid because plaid is so synonymous with school uniforms, with first day of school – it just lends itself. Fashion, you could say, is a character in this film,” explains May, a testament to the importance of clothes in director Amy Heckerling’s high school hit.

Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.

As a style salute to the film and its costume designer Mona May, we're looking back at some of the character's most iconic fashion moments, from her white body-hugging Calvin Klein dress to that yellow plaid skirt suit that's been replicated a million times. Speaking as the film, which is available to watch on Now TV, celebrates its 25th anniversary, May said she struggled to find inspiration from high schools for the costumes in 1995 because the grunge look was so prevalent. She said: “The script talked about these girls who were rich, from Beverly Hills and into fashion, rich enough to go to the runway shows. Who can forget the indelible image of Alicia Silverstone in Clueless, wearing a sunshine-yellow plaid suit and shouting “Ugh, as if!

We were just doing our thing, doing our movie, creating these amazing characters, the young girls,” she says. There are two looks you can go for; the yellow chequered suit or the little red dress with boa and phone accessory. Out of the 64 costumes that Silverstone sports in the film, however, that iconic yellow plaid suit that she wears in an opening scene is the most memorable. Also, I envisioned my skirt to overlap because I would be adding buttons and creating button holes to hold my skirt together while wearing it. Twenty years after its release, Clueless has remained at the forefront of pop-culture (chatter of the real-life possibility of a styling computer program like Cher’s, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” music video, and now, anniversary reminiscing and re-watching).
