style evolution of "mean girl" movies!

like any other girl, i’m a sucker for a good cult classic girl movie. more specifically, “mean girl” movies!  through each generation, there is a classic girl film that stays with that generation and attracts other generations. for me, those movies were “the heathers” from the 80’s, “jawbreakers” from the 90’s, & “mean girls” from the 00’s. what i most love about each movie is that they represent their decade through the fashion choices so well.

the heathers (1988)

the heathers star wionna ryder, shannen doherty, & christian slater in this movie about the popular clique named the heathers. being that three of the four girls, were named “heather” it was only right. until, the other girl is the group named sawyer has enough of the mean girl ways of one of the heathers and…. well you have to watch the rest!

from the heathers, they give you suburban preppy 80’s. there is a lot of plaid, shoulder pads, & color!

jawbreaker (1999) 
jawbreaker is a classic 90’s rude girl movie. it involves three friends who accidentally kill another friend by gagging her with a jawbreaker. and it evolves into a crazy comedy that leaves you never wanting to go to high school with these girls. 

 jawbreakers gives you classic 90’s fashion with crop tops, floral prints, tube tops, and color. what i really love about jawbreakers is the maturing in the style of the main characters and the clear 60’s inspiration. the girls kept their style young and still in the 90’s, while showing 60’s vintage inspired pieces. they were classic cardigans with most looks, pedal pushers, and cat eye glasses.


Mean Girls (2004)
mean girls is the ultimate girl movie for the current generation. the movie stars lindsay lohan, rachel mcadam, & amanda seyfriend. lohan’s character, cat, moves back to the us from africa to start her public school life in high school. she sorta gets chosen to “the plastics” aka the popular group… which changes her life. 

 mean girls definitely gives you the new age of suburban fashion…aka the “fashion” for teenage white girls. the plastics were clearly inspired by the clueless age and try to be that of 2004. lots of tanks, juicy couture, mini skirts, cropped tops, basic designer bags, and the color pink!
