Best 90s Movies to Take Fashion Inspiration From

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Reese Witherspoon in "Cruel Intentions"

The 90s have been back in style for several years now and they’re not going anywhere any time soon. Whether you’re more about grunge or matching plaid mini skirt sets, these movies are full of authentic 90s fashion inspiration you can look to next time you’re putting together an outfit.


Not only did this horror movie kick off a franchise that changed the face of the genre forever and create an endlessly-iconic masked killer, but it also brought the 90s looks with its denim, mini skirts, small floral prints, plaid, and turtlenecks. It’s almost shocking how wearable these outfits still are today.

Cruel Intentions

Whether you’re interested in looking innocent or like the world’s most alpha biotch, Cruel Intentions has inspiration for you. From Catherine’s sexy, vampy dark colors and lingerie to Annette’s sweet pastels, this movie has options for whatever mood you’re in.

Empire Records

Look, if you don’t want to recreate every inch of Liv Tyler’s outfit in Empire Records from head to toe even in this year of 2021, you’re probably the only one. To this day, she remains the height of cool.
