To say that I like the movie Clueless is an understatement.
It is one of those films that always puts a big cheesy smile on my face, it’s full of hilarious moments, amazing fashion and has that feel-good factor.
I can relate to Dionne’s terrible driving and sassy one-liners, Tai’s awkward adorableness and Cher’s comedic outbursts and shopping addiction.
And of course, the outfits are a whole mood by themselves.
So, you can imagine my delight to see Clueless-style checks everywhere in the shops recently.
While bright yellow checks aren’t the easiest look to rock, brown Burberry-style ones are much easier to wear.

Obviously, the most iconic Cher look is the plaid mini-kilt so I had to get my hands on one.
I picked up this miniskirt in Penneys during the week after seeing it on a colleague.
I think it will look great with this white v-neck top also from Penneys and ankle boots for autumn/winter.
The only thing I’m cautious about is the front so I think I would probably stick to black tights with this one in case of wardrobe malfunctions!
The skirt was €12 while the top was €6 so a whole outfit for under €20.
And I also love this yellow check look although the skirt looks like it would only fit a four-year-old!
Asos, of course, have the look nailed with this adorable yellow check co-ord set.
Team the skirt with 90s style clunky sandals or black Converse high-tops.
Shop in sterling and nab the whole outfit for just under €60.
If you aren’t a mini-kilt kinda gal, then these cute pink check shorts allow you to get your legs out but still be comfy.
Pair with a bumbag or mini rucksack for ultimate Cher vibes. These are €23 from Nasty Gal.
And if you want to go all out, this square neck lilac check dress from Boohoo.com is just the ticket.
At just €20, it won’t break the bank!
Another option for a glam night out is this plaid crop leg jumpsuit from Romwe.com.
This is currently reduced from €32.45 to €11.
This double-breasted blazer is a great piece to dress up or down and is €38 from Boohoo.com.
Unfortunately, the double-breasted style can be hard to pull off but everyone who can wear it, I salute you!
For a more subtle look, try this sweet check pinafore from Bershka reduced from €24.99 to only €9.99 in sale.
Pinafore and dungaree dresses are really trendy at the moment and suit most shapes and sizes.
&OtherStories is one of my favourite shops for really cool fashion-forward pieces.
These chunky plaid platforms are quite expensive at €89 but they are a real statement piece.
Finally, for autumn/winter this “waistcoat” (I think it’s a dress) looks great layered over turtlenecks or on its own with black tights.
I found this on Stradivarius’ Armenian site (don’t ask) but converted to euro it comes in at €46.
I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did- I’m now off to watch Clueless for the 100th time!
Leave me a comment and let me know if you will be channelling your inner Cher Horowitz this autumn/winter.
