Like most children of the 90s, I always dreamed of having a computer-operated closet just like Cher Horowitz from Clueless. Nowadays, the idea of owning so many clothes that I'd need an algorithm to pick out an outfit terrifies me. Alicia Silverstone, aka the real Cher Horowitz, shares a similar sentiment. Despite playing one of the most fashun characters of all time, Silverstone has never really cared about trends. Instead, the long-time vegan believes in buying simple and responsible clothes that will stand the test of time. This means her wardrobe is full of ethical brands, vegan leather, billowy blouses and lots and lots of denim.

Silverstone shared her ethical fashion tips with online magazine Coveteur recently and, in a nutshell, her advice is: do the exact opposite of everything Cher Horowitz does.

Here are Silverstone's top tips for minimising the impact of your wardrobe.

Keep it simple:

“I used to wear jeans and a green t-shirt every single day, and I had zero interest in fashion or understanding of it, really,” Silverstone said “I still went back to my jeans and t-shirt [after filming Clueless].”

Buy second-hand:

“I really love used clothing for a lot of reasons. The first reason is because it’s more environmentally sound. I can’t bear all of the clothes that are wasted and then landfilled, it’s just outrageous. The clothing industry is really out of control in terms of how much gets thrown away. So that, to me, is number one."

When you can't buy vintage, buy from responsible companies:

“When I can’t buy vintage, then I like to buy clothes that are new because there are companies that are making really good, responsible choices, and when that happens it’s very exciting. So I like to buy clothes from those brands and support them. Most of my closet is secondhand or eco, but sometimes something else will slide in there that’s not eco and not secondhand.”

Couldn't have said it better outselves!
