Outfits inspired by our fave coming-of-age films

From the funky patterns and classy skirts worn in Clueless to the pops of pink in Mean Girls (aka the movie that's practically the Y2K aesthetic's founder), we can all agree that our fave coming-of-age films serve some serious fashion lewks. If you could use some inspo for how to spice up your fits, you've come to the right place. We've compiled 5 *adorable* outfits inspired by coming-of-age films. Bc let's be real: We've *all* aspired to dress like Cher IRL at some point.

Mean Girls

$13, H & M

Nothing says Mean Girls like a pop of pink (and not only on Wednesdays!). Pair your pink sweater with a denim skirt or jeans for ultimate Y2K vibes. Accessorize with a butterfly necklace and belt, and voila! Your fit will give off the Mean Girls aesthetic.

10 Things I Hate About You

$39, Urban Outfitters

The plot isn't the only thing we're swooning over from this classic '90s flick. With dreamy patterns and bright pops of colors, the outfits in 10 Things I Hate About You make it even more worth the watch. To cultivate Bianca's angelic style, opt for a bright butterfly top like this one from Urban Outfitters. Pair it with jeans or a skirt with a dainty necklace


$19, Amazon

We all know (and love) Cher's iconic yellow plaid look from Clueless, and this skater skirt gives off all of those same '90s vibes we adore. Pair with a white tee under a solid tank. Think: layers, layers and more layers! 

13 Going on 30

$18, CIDER

This colorful dress is a dupe of the one Jenna wears in the iconic party scene. Wear your hair in a chic updo and pair with bold, chunky jewelry.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

$20, Hollister

Let's be real: who *hasn't* dreamed of wearing jeans like the iconic Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants pair? To dress like our fave gal pals, pair dark jeans like these ones from Hollister with a bright and bold top. And don't forget to accessorize with a very Y2K belt.
