    All 48 Outfits Cher Horowitz Wears In "Clueless", Ranked

    Mini skirts galore.

    48. The Dionne-got-on-the-freeway look.

    Paramount Pictures

    I can't even see the whole ensemble, but I know I hate it. I'm not a fan of tank tops over t-shirts or chunky short necklaces, so this is a perfect storm of ick for me.

    I mean, look at that bow thing on the shoulder. Dear god.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the blue of the tank top.

    47. The jean extravaganza.

    Cher wearing a jean skirt, a long-sleeve shirt, and a jean vest
    Paramount Pictures

    In another world, the top is good, but under a jean vest it's gross city. (A jean vest??? Nope.) Then there's the skirt, which is kind of okay but nothing more.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the top.

    46. The way-too-adult-hallway outfit.

    Cher wearing a necklace and a button-up under a dress
    Paramount Pictures

    What 15-year-old would wear this? But even if Cher were 33, I don't know if I would like it. It's weird in a boring way. I think it'd be better if it were tighter.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the white shirt, which could be okay on its own.

    45. The I-don't-know-how-to-be-around-Josh garb.

    Cher wearing jeans, and a tank top over a t-shirt
    Paramount Pictures

    Like I said before, the whole tank-tops-over-t-shirts thing is a big no-no in my book, so I'm prohibited from liking this outfit.

    Cher wearing jeans, and a tank top over a t-shirt
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the tank top's shade of pink.

    44. The sending-herself-flowers look.

    Cher wearing a skirt and a matching shirt and cardigan
    Paramount Pictures

    This is one of the outfits you don't see much of, so it's difficult to judge properly, but from what I can see it's not a winner. Fun is 10,000 miles away and it's not chic enough to make up for it.

    Cher wearing a skirt and a matching shirt and cardigan
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the red-y pink of the sweater and cardigan.

    43. The gym class attire.

    Cher wearing bike shorts, a tank top over a t-shirt, and a small purse
    Paramount Pictures

    NO MORE TANK TOPS OVER T-SHIRTS. But this one ranks the highest because it's such a full, unique outfit. Like, fair play, Cher. I don't like it, but go nuts.

    Here's the bag that somehow works with it.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the bike shorts (given the fact that it's P.E.).

    42. The big-jacket-shopping outfit.

    Cher wearing a skirt, a blouse, a large jacket, and a purse
    Paramount Pictures

    It all feels 2x too big. If the jacket were unbuttoned, it might be alright. (I've just realized this ensemble without the jacket shows up later on the list, and it feels like a different outfit.)

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the put-together mood.

    41. The floral do-gooder.

    Cher wearing a dress and a cardigan
    Paramount Pictures

    This is an interesting one. My eyes can see it's not that bad, but my brain refuses to agree. It feels childish and annoyingly faux quaint.

    Cher wearing just the dress
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the floral pattern on the dress.

    40. The bare-basics-plaid-skirt outfit.

    Cher wearing flats, knee-high socks, a mini skirt, and a t-shirt
    Paramount Pictures

    Nothing stands out. The shirt casts a forgettable spell over the whole thing. Also, this is the skirt Cher's wearing in the big jacket shopping outfit. (She wears the whole bottom half of this ensemble in one of my top 10 outfits as well.)

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    39. The bridesmaid dress.

    Cher wearing a mini dress with a little jacket
    Paramount Pictures

    The dress is fun! The jacket on top of it not so much. I don't like a minuscule jacket. What's the point? Are your arms really cold but your side's hot?

    Cher wearing a mini dress with a little jacket
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the dress itself.

    38. The green dress.

    Cher wearing a mini dress with a matching tiny purse
    Paramount Pictures

    Another one that feels childish to me. It's the combination of the sleeves and the bow. Also...do you see that little baby purse she's holding? Do you see it? Run.

    Cher wearing a mini dress with a matching tiny purse
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the shade of green, I guess.

    37. The mystery sweatshirt outfit.

    Cher wearing a t-shirt and a zip-up sweatshirt
    Paramount Pictures

    I know we can barely see anything, but sweatshirts are great. I have to rank this as high as I can without being unreasonable simply because I'm Team Sweatshirt. What are the others teams? Don't know.

    Cher wearing a t-shirt and a zip-up sweatshirt
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the sweatshirt!

    36. The satin number. (That shirt's satin, right?)

    Cher wearing a jacket, a top, a skirt, a necklace, and a small backpack
    Paramount Pictures

    It's bold, which I admire, but the skirt's a bit off for me. It's too high waisted. And while the jacket and the top are alright-to-good, they don't make up for it.

    In this moment, however, I do like the outfit more. Huh. Regardless, I'm ranking it at #35.

    Best part of the outfit: the jacket.

    35. The fun in the sun.

    Cher wearing a bikini with a hat and a shawl around her waist
    Paramount Pictures

    I like the bikini top, but I don't love love the shawl thing. Also, as you're about to see in the next picture, there's a hat that's SO not my thing.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the check.

    34. The fluffy heart getup.

    Cher wearing a long-sleeve shirt with fluffy cuffs, a belt, and a mini skirt with a fluffy bottom
    Paramount Pictures

    This feels like something a Valentine's Day fairy masquerading as a real girl in a Disney Channel Original Movie would wear, and I mean that as an insult.

    Cher wearing a long-sleeve shirt with fluffy cuffs, a belt, and a mini skirt with a fluffy bottom
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    33. The weirdly understated sweater look.

    Cher wearing a t-shirt and a cardigan
    Paramount Pictures

    Other than the mystery sweatshirt outfit, this is the least Cher ensemble of the movie. Even thought it lacks pizazz, hey, it's alright. I like the sweater a lot.

    Cher wearing a t-shirt and a cardigan
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the sweater.

    32. The Wall Street look.

    Cher wearing a button-up, a cardigan, and a blazer
    Paramount Pictures

    I like the top stuff well enough, but because I can't see the bottom stuff, I've got to play it safe in terms of a ranking. For an outfit to make it any farther with only some of the ensemble showing, it's got to be "A" quality.

    Cher wearing a button-up, a cardigan, and a blazer
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the jacket.

    31. The nice-stems garb.

    Cher wearing a small heels, a mini skirt, a t-shirt, and a cross necklace
    Paramount Pictures

    Those small ruffles on the sleeves make this another outfit that feels middle school-y to me. But I like the blue mini skirt, despite not really being able to see it. 

    The pen does help the outfit. As do the shoes.

    30. The comfy-on-the-couch attire.

    Cher wearing jeans and a matching sweater and cardigan
    Paramount Pictures

    It's kind of a nothing outfit, but there's something charming. Maybe it's the shade of purple, which is solid, but it's probably the hair clips.

    Best part of the outfit: the hair clips.

    29. The red bow dress.

    Cher wearing a mini dress
    Paramount Pictures

    Okay, so this one almost gives off that same childish thing, but the preppiness brings it back from the brink just enough. I don't want the dress in a billion colors, but it's a cute outfit.

    Cher has this purse with it, too, which I'm not a fan of.

    Paramount Pictures

    (Special shoutout to Dionne's awesome outfit here.)

    Best part of the outfit: the preppiness.

    28. The subtle fluffy outfit.

    Cher wearing a long-sleeve shirt with fluffy cuffs, a belt, and a mini skirt with a fluffy bottom
    Paramount Pictures

    This is the same skirt the Valentine's Day fairy wore, but the black top makes it work. Cher wears the top situation with and without a cardigan.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    27. The semi-boho dress.

    Cher wearing a somewhat loose dress
    Paramount Pictures

    Cher only wears this briefly, but I find it pretty. It doesn't reach awesome level – mainly because the color and the waist are both sort of bland, I think – but it's totally fine.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the dress: the flowey-ness.

    26. The leather look.

    Paramount Pictures

    Alright, I don't like the shirt, so obviously that's a problem. It bubbles too much. But when Cher puts on a leather jacket, the outfit is great.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the jacket (assuming it's not real leather).

    25. The summer dress.

    Cher wearing a summer dress
    Paramount Pictures

    Yes, you can't see much of it, but I know in my heart that I would buy this from ASOS. It's a nice white summer dress. What more could you want from a simple outfit?

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the dress...which is the whole outfit.

    24. The aerial car getup.

    Cher wearing a mini skirt, a shirt, and a long-sleeve shirt tied at the waist over it
    Paramount Pictures

    Imagine seeing Cher walking in this. It's cute, right? I know I've made my distaste for tank tops over t-shirts clear, but this top over a t-shirt is good with me.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the black top thing.

    23. The pink explosion.

    Cher wearing pants, a blouse, a sweater, and a headband
    Paramount Pictures

    Something tells me ranking this as high as #23 is controversial!, but I'm sticking to my guns. I really, really like the pants, and the shirt is fun, too! If only it weren't shiny. That's not a yay.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the pants.

    22. The argyle sweater.

    Cher wearing a sweater and a necklace
    Paramount Pictures

    A top that's good enough to make up for the lack of bottom. Necklace aside – which, bleh – I would wear this with some black jeans if I needed to look put together without looking like I was trying.

    Cher wearing a sweater and a necklace
    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the sweater, obviously.

    21. The goth glitterati regalia.

    Cher wearing pants, a tank top, a mesh shirt on top of the tank top, and a cross necklace
    Paramount Pictures

    I'm 100% sure there are people for whom this is a top 5 Cher outfit, and I get it. This is wildly cute if the vibe is your thing, but it's not really my thing.

    I think my issue is how much is happening on top.

    Best part of the outfit: the silhouette.

    20. The floral class outfit.

    Cher wearing a sweater and a dress or top with small straps
    Paramount Pictures

    I adore this top part so much that it's able to rank #20 without me having any clue what the bottom looks like. It's classy casual, which is such a hard feeling to capture. If you find it, don't let it go, kids. (I don't like that she wears a sweater with it at the beginning.)

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the floral pattern.

    19. The bathrobe.

    Cher wearing a dress, a bathrobe, and curlers
    Paramount Pictures

    I mean, a pink bathrobe is a good look. That's all there is to it.

    Best part of the outfit: the bathrobe.

    18. The mini mini skirt.

    Cher wearing tights, a mini skirt, a top, a sweater, and a necklace
    Paramount Pictures

    The skirt seems shorter than I'd be comfortable in, but maybe it's the angle? Regardless, even if it's too much for me personally, Cher looks adorable.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the tights.

    17. The red "date" dress.

    Cher wearing a loose mini dress and heels
    Paramount Pictures

    This silhouette isn't my usual style, but it's good here. It's not a memorable "Oh my god, absolutely," but, yeah, a very cute outfit.

    Best part of the outfit: the color.

    16. The thrown-together standout.

    Cher wearing sneakers, jeans, a crop top, a cardigan, and a necklace
    Paramount Pictures

    This one's a simple champion: it's just sneakers, jeans, a white crop top, a pink sweater, and a necklace (which I would rather live without). Miraculously, the combination of all those run-of-the-mill items makes a remarkably cute outfit.

    I mean, gotta love a crop top.

    15. The workout attire.

    Paramount Pictures

    The sheer confidence this gives off. It's such a power move to workout in something this cute, and I celebrate it.

    Here's the lovely back.

    14. The matching grey ensemble.

    Cher wearing knee-high socks, a mini skirt, a button-up, a blazer, a necklace, a hat, and a backpack
    Paramount Pictures

    Putting the hat aside, because I have nothing positive to say about it, this outfit exudes classy-preppy-queen-b. That's an excellent thing to exude.

    Here it is from the back.

    13. The kiss outfit.

    Cher wearing high-waisted pants, a crop top, and sneakers
    Paramount Pictures

    My god do I wish the top were cuter, because I adore the idea. Those high-waisted light purple pants are stellar and a white crop top is exactly what they need.

    And the shoes are perfect with it.

    12. The big, warm pajamas.

    Cute pink PJs. Absolutely.

    Best part of the outfit: the comfy-ness.

    11. The I-don't-get-the-statue look.

    Cher wearing a long-sleeve shirt and mini skirt
    Paramount Pictures

    Yes, this is a pretty standard cute look, but it's a stalwart for a reason. A mini skirt with a nice, simple shirt is always a good road to take.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    10. The stripe-and-plaid combo.

    Cher wearing a skirt, a button-up, a cardigan, and a headband
    Paramount Pictures

    Another classy-preppy-queen-b winner, but this one's wonderfully understated. It gets the job done well without any fuss, which I enjoy in an oufit.

    9. The aces sweater vest.

    Cher wearing small heels, thigh-high socks, a mini skirt, a shirt, a sweater vest, a backpack, and a headband
    Paramount Pictures

    I cannot believe I'm saying this, but I would wear this sweater vest outfit in a heartbeat. The whole thing is precisely the kind of cool I want to be.

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    8. The big shirt.

    Cher wearing a long, mesh blouse and a crop sweater over a mini skirt, knee-high socks, and flats
    Paramount Pictures

    Before I started working on this, I thought I would rank Cher's look here much lower, but it's really grown on me. I almost love it now, with or without the backpack she takes off. (This is what Cher's wearing under the jacket in #42, and it's the same bottom as #40.)

    Here's the full thing.

    Best part of the outfit: the transparent shirt.

    7. The red preppy masterpiece.

    Cher wearing knee-high socks, a mini skirt, a button-up, a crop shirt, and a headband
    Paramount Pictures

    This feels to me like a better version of the grey preppy greatness (#14). The shirt's not my style normally, but I support it with all my might.

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    6. The best fluff.

    Cher wearing thigh-high socks, a mini skirt, a shirt, a cardigan with fluffy cuffs, and a backpack
    Paramount Pictures

    This is my favorite fluffy look by faaaaaar. Like, I don't wear any fluff ever and I'd wear this. It's somehow both futuristic and classic.

    Best part of the outfit: the skirt.

    5. The minimal pajamas.

    Cher wearing matching crop top and short pajamas
    Paramount Pictures

    More very cute pajamas. I don't know why I like this more than the cuddly plaid ones, but I do. This would be a go-to for me.

    Best part of the outfit: the matching.

    4. The Alaïa dress.

    Paramount Pictures

    Wouldn't change a thing about it. Alone it's outstanding. With the jacket and the purse it's outstanding. Yes, yes, yes.

    Paramount Pictures

    Best thing about the outfit: the dress.

    3. The winter plaid legend.

    Cher wearing thigh-high socks, a button-up, a dress on top of it, a matching jacket, a necklace, a hat, and a small backpack
    Paramount Pictures

    This is the zenith of stereotypical prep. Well, without the jacket it's not as fantastic, but we're going to pretend that's not the case because it's bonkers perfect with the jacket. I'm even okay with the hat!

    Best part of the outfit: the plaid.

    2. Cher's Calvin Klein dress.

    I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress. I want this dress.

    I want this dress.

    1. And finally, Cher's famous yellow plaid knockout.

    It speaks for itself.

    Look at it even more.
