Let’s cut to the chase–we’ve all got problems and neuroses! Thankfully the 90s gave us many, many movies with similarly addled character for us to relate to.  Which 90s movie style icon are you and more importantly how should you dress to accurately reflect this identity?

Liv Tyler in Empire Records

You’re a straight-A student with lots of friends, a great job and a serious speed addiction! Work out your daddy issues in a pleated skirt-fuzzy sweater combo paired with combat boots so we don’t forget that you’re also an edgy rock-loving teen with lubed-up sex drive and angst for days. Don’t forget a cute case for your pills.

Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny

You’re a codependent sass-mouth with a taste for car repair, Chinese food, and men who come up to your elbow. Dress to impress and intimidate with a body conscious dress, spike heels and a leather biker jacket. Red lips are a necessity.

Parker Posey in Dazed and Confused

You’re an aggressive, malicious bully who takes pleasure in humiliating vulnerable people who are smaller or wewaker than you. Are you hurting inside or just a miserable bitch? We don’t know because your character never gets any further development! Oh, well! Fry those little freshman piggies in some cute retro athletic gear.

Winona Ryder in Beetlegeuse

You’re smarter than both your parents who have dragged you away from the city to live in the country where your only companions are the undead.  You’re into though, being strange and unusual and your choice of attire conjures images of a decaying Miss Havisham.
