You guys, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is opening this weekend! OK, so you probably knew that already- but after months of waiting, re-reading the Chbosky classic, and following Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller, and Emma Watson through every interview, red carpet, and MTV First, we can't believe it's all finally happening. We're waiting until tonight to see it all go down on the big screen, but in anticipation of the HUGE, SURE TO BE EPIC film, we've used all of our pent-up Perks energy for another worthy cause, and that's how to dress like Emma's character Sam in the flick. As the strong-minded senior (and Charlie's dreamgirl crush), she has some seriously awesome statement outfits. We've been obsessing over her navy and white varsity jacket ever since we first spotted it in the film's trailer forever ago, and luckily for us, there are TONS of options to choose from. Everyone from adidas to Topshop to Abercrombie have their own take on the collegiate staple, but leave it to Forever21 to release a jacket that's the spitting image of Sam's. And at just $22, there's really no reason NOT to buy it.

With all the school dance scenes in the movie, there's NO question Sam gets her fair share of amazing dresses. But although we seriously love them all, her black velvet minidress above is total '90s perfection. Maybe it's the off-the-shoulder neckline, velvet ruching, or pair of straps, but something about this LDB makes us wish we could time travel back to Homecoming. At least we can still pretend with the Baby Rib Pocket Frock from American Apparel for just $38. AllSaints offers a luxe take with the Char Pullover dress, or if you REALLY want to go high fashion, take cues from the Olsen twins with The Row Hunting dress.

Perks might be set in early '90s Pittsburgh, but the clothes throughout the movie stay timeless. Want proof? Sam's gray sweater and floral skirt combo in the image above, which still manages to look modern and fresh. Maybe it's because of the grunge, flowers , and overall '90s downtown vibe hitting the runway these days (hey Charlotte Ronson, we're looking at you!), but we're not complaining one bit. You can channel the scene with Minkpink's rose print maxi, or just hit up your local thrift shop. The choice is yours.
