style inspiration from ’90s tv characters

please say you kept your scrunchie

Remember landlines and dial-up? Welcome back to the '90s: A pre-digital area in which you never had to worry about sending a witty text message and when everything just felt more authentic.

Because we weren't yet slaves to our technology, there’s a level of human connectedness that’s intrinsic to the beloved decade. And who better to embody that realness than iconic '90s TV characters? Ahead, our favorite '90s girls and how to get their look, right now. So turn back the clock and pretend you’re Felicity Porter going to college in NYC, or Lindsay Weir trying to find her place in high school, or Angela Chase staring into Jordan Catalano’s dreamy eyes.

Lindsay Weir, Freaks and GeeksLindsay Weir always claimed to be a wallflower, but that didn't stop us from noticing her style. Her signature military jacket and occasional antics with the "freaks" basically made her a low-key badass.

Kelly Kapowski, Saved by the BellAll-star athlete Kelly Kapowski may be running from cheerleading practice to a volleyball game, but when not in uniform she always looks amazing. Jeans and a crop top are our go-to pieces for looking #flawless like Kelly.

Topanga Lawrence, Boy Meets WorldTopanga Lawrence. Are she and Cory dating? Are they just friends? Do we really care? Honestly, we'd rather talk about where she got her boots from.

Joey Potter, Dawson’s CreekJoey Potter often emulates the classic girl next door. Throughout the show she discovers her passions for English literature and art, as we can see by her awesome paint-covered overalls, and always manages to look cute while doing it, no matter how hard she tries not to.

Meghan Rotundi, FelicityMeghan Rotundi is a self-proclaimed Wiccan who is constantly testing out spells on Felicity and her friends, but what really got us hooked on her character was her daring wardrobe. C'mon, when was the last time a zebra bra looked THAT good?!

Angela Chase, My So-Called LifeAngela Chase is caught in between her past life and her new friends, but who isn't in high school? We love her loose flannels and agree that if we were going on a date with Jordan Catalano, we'd keep it simple and laid-back.
