5 best summer party looks inspired by 90s and 00s movies Take inspiration from 90s icons and recreate the perfect look for a nigh out

Oh, beautiful summer evenings. The magical aura of summer nights welcomes the deepest fashionable desires, especially since it is the only time of the day when you can actually bear to have something on your skin. Summer outfits are all you can wish for: you have to do styling of a few pieces, naked skin is more than recommended and trendy colors and fabrics scream freedom and freshness. I mean, it’s so easy to impress everyone in a heartbeat. Between twilight and dim lights everything becomes more sensual and extremely fashionable. To prove it here are the cult films of the 90s, with unforgettable styling and summer party crazy aesthetics that are impossible to forget. An entire generation dreamt on those fits, and here's why nss G-Club has selected some of the best summer party looks seen on the big and small screen inspired by the magical nostalgia of the 90s-2000s. Channel your summer diva and get inspired for the next summer night out!

 

The Nanny (1993-1999)

A classic with timeless charm and unique versatility: the Little Black Dress worn by the most stylish nanny of all times, Fran Fine, is a perfect look for those minimum effort, maximum result summer nights. A little black dress with a heart-shaped neckline, better if short and without back-slit is the best solution for last minute evening plans. The dress is stunningly beautiful and easy to accessorize: Fran teaches the world a trick to lighten an apparently elegant look with a red Moschino heart-shaped bag that adds a touch of vivacity and fun to the ensemble. Take notes, G-Club!

 

Clueless (1995)

Clueless is the aesthetic bible of the '90s. All the outfits are unforgettable and replicable for many occasions, and to attend a summer party it makes sense to mention particularly the red dress with square neckline by Alaïa that Cher wears to attend "the party". Dionne, her faithful companion, also looks stunnig in a puffed sleeves floral crop-top by Dolce & Gabbana, perfectly in line with the trends of the moment.

 

I know what you did last summer (1997)

In the teen-horror movie par excellence we see Rachel Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe struggling with their hidden secrets, and fears, but there is also room for a nice fashion moment. Sarah Michelle Geller wears a satin sage green midi dress with diamond-embellished straps in the "calm before the storm" scene, definitely echoing the 90s style and perfect to wear on a summer evening.

 

Never Been Kissed (1999)

Drew Barrymore, Jessica Alba and James Franco compose the cast of the teen-movie that seems a crossover between a journalistic investigation and an anthropological study on millennials, where '90s fashion is literally everywhere. The best look for a summer evening to take inspiration from is definitely the one worn by Jessica Alba and her friends: fun, colorful and inspired by Barbie, actually a "Tropical Barbie", a two-piece pure white set of matching flared pants and flower sequins embellished crop-top, strictly showing the belly. A trick might be using a strapless bikini top to recreate the vibe.

 

Uptown Girls (2003)

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning are the protagonists of the bitter-sweet comedy based on a Julia Dahl story, where a rich heiress loses everything and saves herself thanks to friendship. Molly, the spoiled protagonist, has a crazy wardrobe which soon has to give up to, but not before showing up in a beautiful nude midi dress, featuring floral applications and sequins, that she wears for the evening of her birthday. The dress channels the JLo Versace dress and is perfect to be both feminine and sensual during an elegant evening.

 

13 going on 30 (2004)

A film that perfectly embodies the trope of girls that want to grow fast and get old immediately. With a blow of candles Jennifer Garner changes her life passing directly to 30 years from 13, with all the consequences of the case. A plus that definitely earns is the style: the colorful Versace dress she wears at the company party (but that she lives as a prom at the end of the year) has all the ingredients to be a perfect summer evening outfit, with the right length, a pinch of irony given by the wavy striped pattern and a cut-out detail that lets glimpse a little skin. A look that embodies the best of both worlds.

 

High School Musical 2 (2007)

Definitely the Millennial version of Miranda Priestley’s "The Devil Wears Prada", Sharpay Evans has gone down in history as the most fashionable "friendly-antagonist" ever. Her flashy looks were often on the edge of good taste, and may have made many people smile, but the confidence she chanelled wearing those fits was disarming. For the second chapter of the saga loved by teenagers of the 2000s, Sharpay showcases a look worthy of a summer gala: for her Golf Club evening she wears a long blue dress with a hint of turquoise, studded with big sequins and a deep V-neckline. Perfect for catalizing attention.
