Relax, it’s the 90’s: This Spring, Fashion Gets a Gen-X Movie Makeover

For several seasons, it’s been clear that the 90’s have been having a bit of a “moment” in fashion, but this spring’s collections felt uncannily familiar for a more specific reason: Is it just my imagination, or does anyone else feel like many of this Spring’s collections were pulled straight from the closets of our favorite Gen-X movie characters’ closets? From The Big Lebowski to Beetlejuice, all of our grunge-era favorites are represented, in a cinematic nod to nostalgia.

It seems only fitting to begin our examination of this trend with one of the most fashion-conscious characters of the Clinton Era: Cher Horowitz. In Clueless, Cher’s perfectly coordinated outfits (and remote-controlled closet) had a generation of girls drooling, and though Cher had a soft spot for Calvin, this season, she may prefer Chanel. There’s enough smart skirt suits to outfit every Pismo Beach Disaster survivor, and plenty of slouchy knits for when you’re slummin’ it in The Valley. Enesembally challenged? In Chanel? I don’t think so.


Would you rather miss than look bad? Alexander Wang seems to have taken his cues from White Men Can’t Jump‘s Billy Hoyle this season. You may not be able to dunk, but you’ll still earn bragging rights on the court with Wang’s throw-back “Parental Advisory” jerseys and two-on-two ready knit shorts.


Craving something spookier? Whether you relate more with gothy Lydia or the ghost-with-the-most himself, Emmanuel Ungaro’s got you covered. With witchy frocks, stripes running in every direction, and the most wacky ruffle detail I’ve ever seen, the whole collection feels slightly unhinged — in the best way possible.


Do you relate more to The Dude than the Dead? Borrowing from the cult-classic The Big Lebowski with drug-rug details, socks-with-sandals, and a pair of sunglasses that really ties the look together, Band of Outsiders’ Spring collection is perfect for the slacker who still wants to look good.


No 90’s-movie article would be complete without a little Nic Cage. His specific brand of crazy was put to excellent use in his role as Sailor Ripley in David Lynch’s Wild At Heart, and from the looks of it, Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy are big fans. From Sailor’s snakeskin coat, to Lula’s sexy and skin-tight bikini tops, Rodarte’s Spring collection has something for the Elvis-loving fugitive in all of us.
