'90s Fashion: Spring Styles Inspired by Clarissa Explains It All

Inspired Spring: Clarissa Darling's '90s-Cool Style

Whenever anyone mentions '90s fashion trends, Clarissa Explains It All comes to mind. Clarissa's eclectic, fearless style was a breath of fresh air — and much sought after. She was a total expert at layering, mixing patterns, and pushing the sartorial envelope while staying age-appropriate (she even wore printed leggings under her ripped jeans). Her oversize button-downs, funky accessories, and Doc Martens were the epitome of cool — and though it was never clear where Clarissa shopped, I like to think she was a Goodwill kind-of girl. For a bit of fashion nostalgia, and to crib Clarissa's awesome style, just click each piece below to shop. Na, na, na-na-na. . .

@bisou: I completely agree, and I was kind of a victim of that once I hit high school. It mortifies me to think of how long it took for me to get ready in the morning — and I didn't even look that good!

I love that Clarissa dressed in an age-appropriate manner - I pity the middle- and high-schoolers out there that feel that they have to wear mini skirts and high heels every single day to look cool. You have the rest of your life to stumble to an office job in uncomfortable footwear - use this time to express yourself and dress in a way that makes you happy. :)
