There are many notable cannabis icons in movies, ranging from Cheech and Chong to The Dude, but their tastes in clothing musn’t be overlooked. While these characters are lighting up a joint or packing a bowl, they’re often also sporting some pretty fashionable garb. We’re paying homage to some of the the most stylish stoner characters on the silver screen. Maybe you’ll even find some wardrobe inspiration of your own for the New Year.

The ultimate stoner movie, Dazed and Confused
is filled to the brim with ‘70s-inspired fashions. The male characters—including Matthew Mcconaughey as a memorably sleazy character-don T-shirts, flares, and flamboyantly printed button-ups, while the women wear cropped tops, bell-bottoms, and peasant blouses. As a pot-smoking teen, Milla Jovovich perfectly embodies dreamy, hippie-girl chic.

Natasha Lyonne plays a disco queen who ends up taking a ride with a group of KISS fans. In one scene, her character passes out hard after smoking a joint, but she’s still the best dressed in the film. With her fur coat, oversized sunglasses, and hoop earrings, this look still looks fly nearly two decades later.

There aren’t many sweaters as iconic as Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski’s, which is why he has a well-earned spot on this list. If you’ve always wanted to copy Jeff Bridges’ memorable look, great news: You can still buy the Pendleton sweater
he wears in the film.

We have to give props to one of the most fashionable films in cinematic history, even if Cher Horowitz is only a pot smoker on social occasions (“It is one thing to spark up a doobie and get laced at parties, but it is quite another to be fried all day,” she says in the cult classic flick). When she partakes in said doobie at the Val party, she’s wearing an Alaia. “It's like, a totally important designer,” she reminds us.

Kate Hudson as groupie Penny Lane is someone we wouldn’t mind sharing a joint with. Her long shearling coat is another one of those unforgettable sartorial moments in cinema.

Legendary stoners Cheech and Chong are clearly the most stylish on this list. Who else could pull off double denim, red suspenders, and matching beanies quite like this dynamic duo?
