Ever since I watched Clueless for the first time and I saw Cher brandishing her fluffy, pink pen, I've been a sucker for fluffy fashion. Among her most iconic pieces of clothing and accessories (such as her yellow plaid co-ords and her legendary pen), protagonist Cher Horowitz was also seen wearing a cardigan with fluffy cuffs and, of course, that beautiful, feather trimmed jacket when she was held at gunpoint. Cher wasn't the only member of the fashionable Clueless cast to be seen wearing fluffy fashion, either. Her rival (and total Monet), Amber, sported a super '90s fluffy yeti jacket and a marabou feather headband.
IMO, Clueless was the catalyst for fluffy fashion. In the early noughties, the feather pen was brought back to the big screen with an appearance in Legally Blonde , when leading lady Elle Woods took out a heart shaped notebook and her pink, fluffy pen to take notes on her first day at Harvard Law School. Ms. Woods also donned pink marabou feathers for a second time on the trim of her Halloween bunny costume.
More recently, it appears fluffy fashion is going to play a big part in autumn/winter 2015. Marie Claire reported that a number of designers from Lanvin to Louis Vuitton have showed sumptuous fuzzy coats for fall. In other style news, there were a number of fluffy pieces in the Just Cavalli fall collection, including sophisticated, feathery skirts and fluffy jackets, while Topshop Unique showcased a variety of fluffy fashion pieces with a strong emphasis on fluffy cuffs as well.
So get your Cher on in adorable, '90s fluffy fashion this fall to look like a total Betty, too.

It's a shame there isn't a dessert that looks like this bag, as I bet it would taste awesome. If green isn't your color, you can also pick the same style up in an "Apricot" shade for the same price.
