It was the ’90s. You watched them on screen and lived vicariously through their purchases, but now it’s time to steal their style with a 2016 update.
Rachel Green from Friends
Whether you choose to believe if Ross and Rachel were “on a break” or not, there’s no denying that Miss Green had style. She said no to her parents’ money (strong, brave girl) and moved to the Big Apple, started from the bottom, and made working in a coffee shop look good. Never straying too far from comfort, Rachel was the ultimate all-American girl and always looked hot whether she was in her ‘mom jeans’ or a sexy skin-tight number.
And she always had really good hair. Always.

Cher Horowitz from Clueless
If Iggy Azalea pays homage to you in a music video, it’s safe to say you’re pretty darn cool. Back in the ’90s, Clueless was the teen flick and the Mean Girls. Unlike Regina, Cher was anything but catty and her charm resided in her adorable naiveté. She made yellow plaid and co-ords cool, and let’s not forget the opening scene when the camera pans over her automated closet. In 1995, those were your #lifegoals. Heck, it’s 2016
and it still is!

Carrie Bradshaw from Sex And The City
To many, Carrie’s closet in her one-bedroom apartment in NYC was the fashion mecca. If you were looking for the most random piece of accessory for a costume party, it’d be in there, sitting in a hat box, on top of a shelf, just waiting to be picked up. It’s hard to pinpoint her actual sense of style; she had everything, and sometimes she’d choose to wear it all at once. Do we love her for it? Abso-effing-lutely.
