Tired of the usual summer fashion? You know the usual bohemian-inspired outfits and neon bright ensembles? Well, you might just find the perfect fashion inspo for your summer wardrobe from two decades ago! Yes, we're talking about the '90s. The '90s era gave us trends such as knee-high socks, plaid skirts, crop tops, dungarees, and many more trends that we now know and love. It gave birth to "grunge fashion," which a lot of us love to sport lately. But this era also gave us preppy and glam as showcased in classic chick flicks wherein characters were clad in faux fur, metallic skirts, and chunky heels. It was a remarkable era in fashion and the trends still make major comebacks from time to time. And this could possibly be your inspiration for your next summer outfit, too! Here are creative summer-themed outfits based from '90s movie #Only90sKidsWillKnow

Before Blair Waldorf, there was Cher Horowitz, a rich, superficial but good-natured girl who dedicated her time helping a newbie in their school to become popular like her in hopes of fulfilling her purpose in life. Cher's fashion is classy and preppy (and full-on designer). Her closet is basically every girl's dream plus she had her computer match outfits for her! No wonder this movie had a cult following, Cher's outfits were always on point.

10 Things I Hate About You

Truly a '90s classic, 10 Things I Hate About You is a movie about a mean and cold-hearted girl named Kat Stratford who was set-up to date Patrick Verona, an equally intimidating dude just so that Kat's little sister could go on a date as well. Kat Stratford may be the main character in this movie, but her little sister Bianca Stratford is probably the perfect summer fashion inspiration. Her outfits are cute and girly, always sporting something floral or something pink. Shoutout to all our frilly Candy Girls. This one's for y'all!

She's All That

One of '90s' best romcoms, She's All That is a story about school jock who made a bet with his friends promising to turn an unpopular girl, Laney Boggs, into a prom queen. Laney may not be "all that" in the eyes of others but there's something about those dungarees and nifty specs that make her look unique and surprisingly chic. Take cue from this outfit she took to the beach with the dreamy Freddie Prinze, Jr.!
