LONDON ’90s movies and TV shows are pretty darn awesome. And, although time has moved on since then; these iconic shows and films are still just as relevant in 2016.

The life lessons we learned from Clueless still ring true; 10 Things I Hate About You will teach you everything you need to know about dating; and most importantly The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is still a major source of fashion inspo.
