Happy birthday, Mean Girls! The movie that defined the early aughts and gave the world enough quotes to last a lifetime turns 10 today—which officially makes us feel ancient. Tina Fey’s masterpiece has taught us a lot over the past decade, from basic calculus (the limit does not exist!) to the dangers of an all-carb diet. But perhaps most lasting are the various fashion lessons the film doles out. After watching Mean Girls, have you been able to buy a skirt without asking your friends first if it looked good? Or worn track pants on a day other than Friday? I didn’t think so.

And let us not forget the most important decree in the Plastics’ Rulebook: “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” How appropriate that Mean Girls’ 10th birthday falls on a Wednesday! To celebrate this twist of fate, we decided to look back at some of our favorite rosy fashion moments from the past year—as well as a few older, iconic looks that we HAD to include. Pink is just so fetch, don’t you agree?
