    27 Outfits I Can't Believe We Let '90s Shows And Movies Get Away With

    As if!

    The movies and TV shows that came out of the '90s gave us so many great one-liners, a ton of memorable characters, and a whole bunch of fashion inspiration.

    However, not every outfit that graced our screens was as iconic as, say, Cher's yellow plaid outfit from Clueless. In fact, some were probably better left at the back of the closet.

    Here are 27 outfits I can't believe we let '90s movies and TV shows get away with:

    1. Ginger's rainbow tie-dye disaster from Casino.

    It looks like she was painting with watercolors and decided to wipe her brushes on her clothes.

    2. Will's fluorescent 'fit from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

    My head hurts a little just looking at it.

    3. Bianca's Toddlers and Tiaras tutu from 10 Things I Hate About You.

    This outfit is straight from the American Girl catalogue.

    4. Basically anything from Cory's oversized shirt phase on Boy Meets World.

    He exclusively wore clothes from Eric's closet from sixth to eighth grade.

    5. This bowling shirt–esque vest, which is the only bad outfit Fran ever wore on The Nanny.

    The outfit would be great without the vest!

    6. Rose's complicated yellow dress from Titanic.

    There's just...a whole lot going on.

    7. Monica's see-through cheetah print blouse from 90210.

    Rich mom energy.

    8. Mia's incredibly boring dancing outfit from Pulp Fiction.

    Why is her shirt so long?

    9. Jackie's striped sweater and orange pants from That '70s Show.

    I pants???

    10. This substitute teacher–esque ensemble Sabrina wore in Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

    She took "dressy casual" a little too seriously.

    11. Gillian's weird green dress from Practical Magic.

    I love the color, but the fabric looks like it was leftover from reupholstering an old couch.

    12. Ginger's lace top and pajama pants from Casino.

    TBH, I think I just really hate the shirt's scalloped hemline.

    13. Kelso's colorful puffer jacket on That '70s Show.

    He'd absolutely crush an ugly sweater contest, though.

    14. David's golf course–ready outfit from 90210.

    87.6% of American dads are wearing this exact outfit right now.

    15. Will's paisley suit jacket from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

    It's approaching fancy curtains territory.

    16. Josie's feather situation from Never Been Kissed.

    She's giving Björk a run for her money.

    17. Annie's Queen Elizabeth–esque attire from The Parent Trap.

    Did she need to wear suits at 11 years old to show that she was a proper British lady?

    18. Sam's Nickelodeon villain suit from Casino.

    C'mon, doesn't he look like he should be trying to outsmart 12-year-old Miranda Cosgrove's brilliant schemes?

    19. Michelle's itchy-looking cardigan from American Pie.

    Nothing about this outfit looks cute or comfortable.

    20. Jodi's denim-on-denim look from Dazed and Confused.

    She walked so Britney and Justin could run.

    21. Eric's history professor–approved sweater vest from That '70s Show.

    At least it looks cozy.

    22. Donna's cold armpit chic from 90210.

    Why doesn't the shrug go past her arms?

    23. Topanga's "lawyer in a Christmas movie" look from Boy Meets World.

    Why are there a million little holes in the cardigan?

    24. Sabrina's candy corn dress from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

    I mean, it'd be cute if it was solid orange instead of having that weird yellow stripe.

    25. Laura's Buckingham Palace guard–inspired outfit from Family Matters.

    All that's missing is the tall, fluffy hat.

    26. Aunt Becky's pumpkin blouse from Full House.

    It's giving traffic cone vibes.

    27. And finally, Tai's post-makeover plaid outfit from Clueless.

    I love her so much, but this looks a little too much like a prep school uniform.
