Fashion and Film: Clueless

It’s safe to say that I have always been obsessed with everything and anything that has to do with 90′s culture. The fashion, the music scene, the films; everything was absolutely perfect. One of my favorite films to come from this era is definitely the cult classic teen comedy Clueless. Based on the life of spoiled California brat Cher Horowitz, the film focuses on Cher’s attempt to make new girl Tai cool with the in crowd all while making everybody else around her happy. While trying her best to the make the world perfect, Cher realizes the type of person she really wants to be all while coming to terms with the complicated things in life. While the film is definitely hilarious and a classic I can watch over and over again, I am absolutely obsessed with the fashion and Cher’s computer generated closet. Below are some of my favorite looks and how you can recreate them this spring season.

Maybe it is just my personal pet peeve, but the “flip flop” sound made as they smack the bottom of a person’s foot is as bad as nails on a chalkboard. Also, flip flops seem to me to be the “I have given up” shoe, sweatpants for your feet.

Sure, they have their place, when you are at the beach or pool, but outside of those limited times, flip flops should be kept at home. There are so many other sandal options that exist, that take minimal extra effort to put on and actually make the wearer look fashionable. To prove it, here are six sandals that require nothing more than a buckle, if that, to secure it to your foot.
