Learn it. Know it. Live it.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High continues to be one of my favorite movies of all time. I can’t think of another teen film that more succinctly sums up high school; Or at least, my high school. One of the most memorable characters is the worldly Linda Barrett. I’m pretty sure Phoebe Cates’ career pretty much peaked with Fast Times (I’ve never seen her in anything else) but her role as Linda was so memorable, that let’s face it, every dude who has ever seen the movie has the image of her in the red bikini seared into the back of his eyeballs for life. All you need to recreate Linda’s look are some super short shorts , an over-sized sweater, some boho jewelry, and (obviously) some smokin’ hot swimwear. And of course a whole lotta ‘tude.
