10 Things I Hate About You

10 Things I Hate About You Stills

90s teen movies may be my ultimate guilty pleasure, but 10 Things is top of the list. With the gorgeous Heath Ledger, a baby-faced Joseph Gordon-Levitt, quotable lines, and lots of teen angst, you can’t help but forgive its ‘liberal’ adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Set in Padua High, the story follows young Bianca and Cameron as they try to set up her fiery sister, Kat, with the dark and mysterious Patrick Verona. Plotting, paintballing, and parties ensue, and it also contains one of the most heart-melting scenes of all-time.

Before I get all starry-eyed over Heath, 10 Things is a 90s fashion capsule, and great inspiration for this summer. Although this decade’s – and this film’s – fashion choices had their ups and downs, 90s is building momentum as a major trend, and is easily incorporated into your wardrobe. You don’t need to stick to one Stratford sister, but blend Kat and Bianca’s style with minimalist shapes meeting sunny prints…
