More than two decades on, it’s surprising that Romy and Michele’s fashion is more trendy than ever.

Today, as the ’90s and 2000s-inspired clothes have penetrated contemporary style and the use of multiple colors has become the new trend, it seems like the store the duo opened at the end of the film. could become extremely popular.
