Way before Mean Girls and Legally Blonde came along, there was a little old film called Clueless, which charted the highs and lows of a Beverley Hills teenager and her group of friends.

Sound familiar? Yep, by today’s standards you’re probably already rolling your eyes and shouting ‘CHEESE!’ at the screen.
Well, pause right there girlfriend and put your scepticism to one side, because Cher and co. pioneered the chick flick genre with one liners such as ‘Whatever’ and a rotating closet on standby 24 hours a day.

Scarily still relevant today (hello Iggy Azalea) Cher made the 90s what it was- a big ‘ole fashion love in with all things checked, fluffy, see-through and short. Over the knee socks were cool, gym class was just an excuse to gossip with your friends and we all wanted a computer which picked out our clothes every morning.

Oh the 90s. One big love affair with all things, er, cool. At least we thought it was cool, but then came the noughties and we went all futuristic and abandoned the naffness/so-bad-it’s-good-fashion of the 90s. Until now….

Yep, the fickle world of fashion has decided the 90s are now back ‘in’. We’re talking the works here- punk grunge, text on tees, over the knee socks, dungarees – the list goes on!

But what about the style icons who rocked them the first time round. Here’s our round up of the best 90s icons… who was your fave?!

The Spice Girls: My lovely colleagues will giggle at this one, knowing I am a huge fan, but even so these girls deserve the top spot on my list purely for all the trends they rocked without giving a hell. So, in no particular order…. Platform shoes/trainers/boots, babydoll dresses, tracksuits, halter necks, printed t-shirts, leopard print, hair glitter, bunches…. Yeah I could go on, and on AND on- OK I’ll stop… *sad face*

Cher from Clueless: To this day there has never been a film so quoted, so emulated, so LOVED. ‘As if’ and ‘Whatever’ became classic catchphrases overnight and Cher Horowitz became the girl we all wanted to be. A revolving wardrobe, a computer that picked out her outfits each day, shiny hair, the best BFFs like ever, oh and Paul Rudd as her stepbrother. Sigh.

2013 is like sooo last year and so are the trends! It’s time to take a look at the hottest 2014 fashion trends due to hit the high street any day now.

We’ve made it nice and easy in our A-Z of top trends which will see you through the year in style. So sit back, relax and let’s start at the very beginning…

A is for Androgynous: Big in 2013, even bigger in 2014, the boy/girl divide is closing and it seems we are embracing dressing like our other halves. Sharp tailoring, crisp white shirts and the one-off boyfriend jumper thrown in and you’ll be sorted.

B is for Bohemian: Free spirits rejoice! Paisley prints, mixed fabrics and fringed accessories all make up this trend and will start to filter onto the rails in their droves come early spring, so snap up the key pieces early and you’ll be set for festival season in style.

C is for Checks: We teased this as a trend to watch in our SS14 preview last year- checks are set to be the print to watch this season, mark our words! Think loose checks in candy colours as your must buy now and tightly woven checks in darker colours for later on in the year and you can’t go wrong.

‘Snow is fallin’ all around me!’ Oh no wait it hasn’t started to snow yet… but that doesn’t mean it isn’t time to dig out the winter woollies and purchase that all important new winter hat!

The question is…. Which winter hat are you? What? You didn’t realise that your style was completely defined by the kind of hat that you wore?! Well, that simply won’t do. Let us school you on the five B’s of the hat world…

Bobble Hat: Geeky cool at its very best. Once reserved for the nerds of this world who were more worried about keeping warm than being fashionable, the humble bobble hat has made a return to the spotlight. You will either be the person that has worn one for years and doesn’t give a damn, or a newbie cashing in on the hot look this season. MIC’s Millie Mackintosh & Kelly Brook are the celeb messiahs of this trend, so look to them for some style inspo if you’re struggling to find your bobble this season.

Bowler: You’re too cool for school; a fashionista who always looks good and the bowler hat you just happen to have lying around completes any look effortlessly. You are always up on the latest trends, like to make an effort for any occasion and love nothing more than checking out the catwalk and interpreting it for the high street.

Beanie: Laid back and relaxed is your style, as evident by the slouchy beanie you just happened to don this chilly morn to a) keep your head warm and b) cover up your bed hair. You’re in good company here as Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are BIG fans too.

Beret: Bonjour! What do you mean you’re not French?! Oh, so it turns out anyone can wear a beret nowadays and isn’t just reserved for the chic style queens of Paris. Hurray for you, you little fashionista you. Championed by the likes of Clueless’ Cher (the epitome of cool) Rachel Bilson and Lea Michele, the beret is a firm favourite this season to top off your sleek pencil skirt and fluffy jumper. Et voila!

Baseball: Well hello there you street style cutie you! Baseball caps are no longer relegated to hiding messy hair, going to the gym, hiding from the paparazzi etc. These days the size (don’t get any ideas you naughty readers!), style and brand are all that matter with celebs like Rihanna, Beyonce and Cara- yep her again- all being big fans. It’s fair to surmise you’re at home in your baseball cap, jeans and sweats, but like to think a cool bomber and heels will smarten up your style if required.
