It's hard to believe that Clueless hit theaters over 25 years ago — especially since all of those fashion moments are just as relevant today as they were back in 1995. Sure, Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone) may have been clueless when it came to love (and, well, driving), but she definitely excelled when it came to putting together an enviable outfit.

As a style salute to the film and its costume designer Mona May, as well as a way to prep for Halloween, we're looking back at some of the character's most iconic fashion moments: from her white body-hugging Calvin Klein dress to the plaid set we simply can't quit. Reminisce with us as we visit some of Clueless's best fashion moments. And if these looks leave you "totally buggin'" (in a good way), we've found a few shoppable items to help you recreate them, too.

Everett Collection

Cher definitely wanted to look sweet while showing her father her new-and-improved report card, and this white scrunchie, ivory cardigan set, and black skirt combo helped her achieve just that. Plus, we'd be lying if we said we didn't refer to her initial speech during various times in our lives. "Well, some teachers are trying to low-ball me, Daddy. And I know how you say, 'Never accept a first offer,' so I figure these grades are just a jumping off point to start negotiations."
