Back to School Style: With the Help of 90's Celebs.

Everyone loves the classic rom-coms of the 90s.  From the ever-so-stylish fan favorite Clueless, to the movie about letting your guard down for love in 10 Things I Hate About You, these movies not only capture what we wish our romantic life was like growing up, but also how we looked. So, embrace your inner 90s diva with these back to school looks inspired from 3 chick flicks.

CLUELESS

“Ugh, as if” you wouldn’t want to strut the hallways like Cher on your first day of school.  Maybe last year you wanted to break out your plaid and denim for the first day, but couldn’t in fear of looking “out of style”.  But no worries, this year is all about rockin’ your fave vintage pieces.  And what better way to do so than by using Cher Horowitz’s style as inspiration?

Cher was the queen of trendy and out-there fashions, so in order to tone down the rest of her ensemble, she would pair the majority of her looks with a simple lip.

GET THE LOOK:

AU NATUREL + MAUVELOUS

Mix equal amounts of Au Naturel and Mauvelous in order to achieve Cher's signature lip look.

SHE'S ALL THAT


Laney Boggs is the definition of geeky-cool-girl.  With her oversized glasses and grungy overalls, she has you wanting to recreate her looks in order to get the cute guy at school to give you a makeover. Embrace you inner nerd by pairing a trendy pair of overalls with chic booties and huge sunnies.  You’ll look Laney-worthy, while still being up-to-date with current trends.

Laney is the queen of the girl-next-door look, but occasionally spiced up her innocence with light pink lips.

GET THE LOOK:

CLASSIC CORAL + AU NATUREL + CREAMY MAUVE

To get Laney's sweet pink lips, mix together Classic Coral, Au Naturel, and Creamy Mauve in equal parts.

10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU

Kat Stratford has that whole hippie-grunge thing going on.  As she is trying to open herself up to love, you can tell that she still stays true to herself, and doesn’t “dress-to-impress”. Instead, she keeps her outfits low-key and caj.  I think we can all learn for this 90s hipster, that falling in love doesn’t require changing who you are.


Let your natural locks free and add a bit of coral color to your lips for a Kat-worthy look.

GET THE LOOK:

ORANGE SORBET + CLASSIC CORAL + CREAMY MAUVE

Blend together Orange Sorbet, Classic Coral, and Creamy Mauve to get Kat's rad lips.
