    Man, oh man.

    You remember this movie, right? It aired all the time on the Disney Channel. Katherine Heigl and Danielle Harris starred as Alexia and Hayley Wheaton, two very different sisters who each wished upon a star to be the other, and swapped bodies for a week. And in that week, they wore a lot of super-rad '90s duds, which have been ranked from worst to best below.

    28. Hayley's Giant Green (?) T-Shirt

    Technically, it's Alexia trapped in Hayley's body wearing this monstrosity, but a monstrosity nonetheless.

    27. Hayley's Stargazing Sweatshirt

    The only special thing about this sweatshirt is that Hayley was wearing it when she made her wish to be Alexia.

    26. Hayley's Einstein Pajamas

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Hayley somehow looks more put together in these PJs than she does in that green-and-brown-stripe circus-tent shirt.

    25. Alexia and Hayley's Everyday Jackets

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Just pretty basic.

    24. Alexia's Beige Suit

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Why does an 18-year-old need a beige power suit? Answer: She doesn't โ€” especially not one with that massive collar.

    23. Alexia's Green Sweater and Jeans

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Mom Jeans, cut generously to fit a mom's body. Exclusively at J.C. Penney!

    22. Alexia's Collared Bikini

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    And this is the outfit Alexia was wearing when she wished to be Hayley. Also, why does a bikini need a lapel?

    21. Hayley's Grungy Lounging Look

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    It's like she fell into the sale rack at a Seattle thrift store and said, "I'll take it!"

    20. Alexia's Colorblock Sweater

    Via Leucadia Film Corporation

    Grandpa chic. Weird that she sleeps in a wool sweater, though.

    19. Hayley's Sick-Day Sweats

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    The outfit's not all that notable, but you still want those grape slippers, don't you?

    18. Alexia's Flower-Power Sundress

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Alexia looks less like a student and more like the teacher in this.

    17. Hayley's Oversize T-Shirt and Denim Jacket Combo

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Didn't one of the Olsen twins wear this in It Takes Two?

    16. Alexia and Hayley's Formal Coats

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Yes to Haley's. Not so much to Alexia's.

    15. Alexia's Gym Clothes

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Feels like a knockoff of what they wore for P.E. in Clueless, no?

    14. Alexia's Floral Romper

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Alexia was even stylish when she went to sleep.

    13. Alexia's Baby Pink Nightgown

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Again, stylish even when she slept. But did she really need a different pajama set every night?

    12. Alexia's Hot-Pink Silk Robe

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Somehow Alexia has time before school to lounge around in this.

    11. Hayley's Floral Dress and Denim Vest

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    If American Girl made clothes for full-sized humans.

    10. Alexia's Winter Festival Pep Rally Dress

    Almost identical to her pink nightgown, but appropriate enough to wear to school.

    9. Hayley's Cropped Pink Sweater

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    What are the chances this came from Contempo Casuals?

    8. Alexia's Argyle Sweater Set

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Much prep. Very wow.

    7. Hayley's Striped Crop Top

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Do you think Alexia as Hayley popped one of Hayley's giant T-shirts in the dryer to make this happen? If so, kudos to her.

    6. Alexia's Winter Festival Dress

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Alexia supposedly spent a ton of money on this dress, but the dress she picked out as Hayley totally upstaged it. Dat back detail, tho.

    5. Alexia's Blue Pleather and Polka Dots Ensemble, Day 2

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Points off for the sneakers...and for wearing the exact same thing two days in a row. Total violation of "the rules."

    4. Alexia's Blue Pleather and Polkadots Ensemble, Day 1

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    From the feather boa scrunchie, to the white sunglasses and stockings, this. is. a. look.

    3. Hayley's Dominatrix Costume

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    It takes guts to wear a pleather Halloween costume at school, especially if you're wearing it while trapped inside your sister's body.

    2. Hayley's Winter-Festival Dress

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    Not only is this red-on-red ensemble A+, but Hayley as Hayley got to wear it!

    1. Alexia's Purple-on-Purple Look

    Leucadia Film Corporation

    YAAASS. If someone asks you what the '90s looked like, show them this picture. Actually show them the whole movie. It's streaming on Netflix.
