Halloween Costume Idea: Cher Horowitz | Clueless

As most of you likely know Clueless is one of my all time favorite films everrrr. That said, it would make sense to feature Clueless's main character, Cher Horowitz, as a Halloween costume idea for women. I dug through some stills from the movie & created a hybrid outfit to emulate her style.

To start off this look, you're going to layer a white sleeveless turtleneck a black crop top. There is leeway with the white shirt -- in the film she wears a basic tee & in my costume it's a sleeveless turtleneck. Next we definitely want some sort of yellow plaid to mimic one of Cher's most notable looks: her black & yellow plaid ensemble. This plaid yellow skirt is a great way to keep your Halloween costume modern. We don't have to be so literal when dressing up like a character. :]



Lastly we want some cute silver heels paired with some knee-high or thigh high socks. Once again, there is freedom with your socks. Throughout the film, most characters wear knee socks at some time or another. The color is up to you. To accessorize the look, get a small transparent clutch to hold your necessary items like your ID, cell phone, & credit card. Now you're ready to be totally clueless.

This Halloween costume idea based on Clueless's Cher Horowitz is actually pretty simple to achieve & you'll look super awesome while wearing it. Clueless is a timeless film & Cher is the perfect person to be if you're out of Halloween costume ideas this year. As if!

Stay tuned for more Halloween costume ideas for women! Stay cool. Stay positive. Stay updated. What do you think of this costume idea? Would you ever be Cher? :]

  2. So fun! Yes I would be Cher if we were going to a party! Growing up people would always call me Chastity (Cher's daughter's name) instead of Charity...UGH. I can remember watching Sonny & Cher on t.v. which really dates me by saying that. :)

    1. Charity, I like that name. :] I think you're thinking of Cher the singer, not Cher from Clueless. :p

  9. What a great price for that yellow plaid skirt! Is it bad that I want to wear that piece alone, not even part of the costume? :P

  22. i love Clueless and i actually watched it again (for the 3rd time haha) quite recently! i've got a skirt that reminds me a lot of Cher's yellow tartan skirt, so temptation to just dress up as her for halloween is big haha
