Universal Standard, the incredibly size- and body-inclusive brand, is bringing Clueless back in the form of a sale.

In one of the film’s unforgettable scenes, protagonist Cher (played by Alicia Silverstone) gets dressed by consulting her computer database of clothing.

It’s something we’ve dreamt about reenacting in real life since the movie came out in 1995, and thanks to a new feature from Universal Standard, we may finally get our chance.

From April 24th to April 30th, customers will be able to live out their 90s Clueless fantasy and get dressed with a click of a button.

Customers can participate in “spin to style,” a feature where they’ll be served three timeless pieces to add to their shopping cart.

With each piece added, they’ll earn a deeper discount —up to 30% off.

  • If you add style 1 to cart you get 10% off
  • If you add style 1 + 2 to cart, you get 20% off
  • If you add style 1 + 2 + 3 to cart, you get 30%

You can re-spin styles 1, 2 and 3, but you can only spin five times.

We can’t wait to learn more, but in the meantime, we’ll be planning our retro buns of steel workout in Universal Standard’s Next-to-Naked Bodyshort.

Universal Standard is a body-inclusive clothing line with sizes ranging from 00-40. Only the highest quality of fabrics are used to give you pieces that will truly last.

Honestly I think they take advantage of pitching an inclusive range but they actually make terrible clothes that cost a bunch

Lizc

Yes the mystery boxes are tricky. I did ok because last year I did badly so this year I only bought one. Unless you really love everything they sell you are better off shopping during their sales. That said I love their jackets and some of their tops but hate their t shirts and dresses.

Meg

I am taking a LONG break from US. The mystery box was a total bust. Half the items are going to ThredUp because no one I know wants them. Why can’t the t-shirts be cotton? I really hate the slinky Rayon/synthetic fabric. The jeans I received look like the ugliest 90s style jeans only super stretchy (not good). The only US items I’ve been happy with are loungewear. Maybe because the too soft synthetic fabrics actually work for those items. I really wanted to love US but they keep letting me down with their horrible “fat girl” fabrics and ugly colors. Am I the only fat girl who wants regular skinny girl fabrics?!

Coupon code: wardrobe_oxygen10 stacked with the promo, so I bit. I got Hathaway joggers for $50, Jackson jumpsuit for $50, and rachele lounge robe for $80.
I got some okay pieces in the loungewear mystery box, but these are the items I really wanted.

Leslie

Thank you everyone for all your honest comments. I was considering buying some items from US, but it seems the quality is not there for the price.

Jennifer

Agree – I got two t-shirts and a basic top in the mystery sale, and if say I got about what I paid for or slightly less – the shirts should be retailing for $20-$25, not $50-$60. Fabric was thin and fussy (though comfy and stretchy.) Construction relied a bit too much on stretch – a common problem with ‘size inclusive’ brands that don’t modify the pattern right when going down or up and hope the stretch alone will cover anything wonky. I could really tell in the sleeve/armpit area. (I sew, so I look for fabric and construction issues when trying new brands.)

So while I might try them out again if they had a major sale, in my head I divide their sale price by a third for estimated value, so I wouldn’t shop there for less than a 60% off sale.

Hi Leslie! I am in no way defending the company BUT Ihave a TON of their stuff and it requires you to wash in cold/cold rinse and then hang dry. A HUGE hassle but since i have a bunch of their things I just make a separate load for just those.
The tshirts have gotten stray strings and lost hemline seams but I bought a bunch when they were on a super sale for like $20 each so not a huge loss, I got more wear than say a Walmart or Target tee.
I am a short and “thicc” girl so jeans have been a HUGE MAJOR issue for me since I was young and the half dozen I have gotten from here are the best I have ever gotten so there is that.

AS a side note, if you lose weight or go up a size within a year they will send you NEW items in your new size. I just traded in two pairs of jeans and a tee. Got new ones within a week via Prioirty Mail. They provide a mail in label and I beleive they donate the denim to companies that re-use and upcycle it. Not the biggest deal in the world, buit if everyone did just a tiny bit it would matter. 🙂
ANd FINALLY I spent $310 on two tops and one luxe box. Got a total of one t shirt that was in a petite so too short and everything else was long sleeve/sweater/jackets. So a total loss pretty much. And they do NOT budge about returns with the mystery boxes. Even if you volunteer to pay the shipping back to them and take a store credit. Grr…

h

Me too! 100 for a box of items missing or in the wrong size. Still salty!

Rachel

I spent way too much with them this winter after hearing how great everything was. I got some jeans that seemed like they were made for me. Worth the high price tag! Then- everything else….blah. I loved the jeans so much I figured that everything would be great. I got a sweatshirt dress which was cute, but the pocket ripped after wearing twice! The jean jacket was the weirdest cut, boxy like a crop jacket, but not cropped so I just look like sponge Bob squarepants. Loose threads EVERYWHERE. Long sleeve vnecks that were supposedly high quality (and $60 each!) came out of the wash with threads sticking out everywhere. You can’t return anything without tags- so I’m SOL because they had products that literally came adapted at the seams after wearing once? Total bs. Don’t but any of their overpriced crap, even on sale.

Tolin

I just wish more of their styles came in petite sizes. I don’t expect much from most clothing lines, but for one that advertises itself as having the greatest size inclusivity, I figure that at least the majority of their styles would be available in a size that fits me (without requiring an amount of tailoring that costs more than the cost of the clothing itself).

Bee

They used to have a lot more petites and have slowly phased them out over time. I’d buy a lot of their clothes if they had them available in petites – but they seem to not care about continuing to offer petite sizes. 🤷🏻‍♀️😖

Shadr

Right, it seems like inclusivity is only geared towards one end of the size spectrum. Their smallest size is just enough to possibly fit me and I’m not even that small. It’s annoying trying to find clothes anywhere because vanity sizing has eaten up all the XS/petite measurements and I don’t have the income to go to some fancy designer place geared towards those sizes.

“customers will be able to live out their 90s Clueless fantasy and get dressed with a click of a button”

…does this deal include Paul Rudd showing up on my doorstep? Because that’s an integral part to my Clueless “fantasy” 😉

Julia

That annoying character is still inspiring women? Yucch. And yes, I read “Emma.” Not Jane Austen’s finest hour.

Jennifer

While it isn’t my favorite Austen book, she gets kudos for Emma for writing the “unlikeable” main character with serious character flaws (meddling, assumptions, etc.) yet still making it interesting. The character growth in the book is good as well – and I like that the guy wasn’t in love with some fantasy, idealistic version of her but cared about her as she was.

So many authors take the easy route of writing Mary Sue perfect characters who ate beautiful, irresistible, always do the right thing, and have secret powers or a bloodline that sets them apart as “special.”

Tammy R.

Agreed. The mark of a talented writer is someone who can present characters with real personality flaws (not some kind of “cute” flaws that readers can still find to be tolerable) and build a real story with real plots around them.

Amanda P

I’m still bitter about spending $100 on 2 t shirts and a sweatshirt in their ‘loungewear’ mystery bundle sale.

Lily

Oh my gosh, me too! And one of the t-shirts was branded, insult to injury!
I actually love US clothes, but it’s gonna be a while before I send them any more of my money.
