Sandy from Grease

A classic, this sexy costume is easy to replicate with clothes already in your closet and a little bit of thrifting know-how.

Wednesday Addams, The Addams Family

I bet you’ve pulled this look off on a normal weekday without even trying! A schoolgirl-ish dress with some knee-high socks and a touch of white powder will give you an instant costume.

Carrie White, Carrie

Slip dresses happen to be trending, making this costume all the easier. Add a tiara and fake blood and you’ll be instantly recognizable as Carrie!

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City

And now for a completely different Carrie, but one that’s still a classic pop culture icon: a Carrie Bradshaw costume will have you feeling fun and flirty!

Phyllis Nefler, Troop Beverly Hills

This was my favorite movie as a child. If you have access to a vintage Girl Scout uniform, you’ll have the best throwback costume at the party!

Alex Owens, Flashdance

This will possibly be the most comfortable costume you will ever wear. Throw on an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt, a leotard, and some leg warmers, and you’ll be right at home on the dance floor.

Eleven, Stranger Things

Stranger Things

One of TV’s most mysterious characters is also one of the simplest costumes to put together for Halloween. Grab a pink dress, a blue track jacket and of course, don’t forget the Eggo waffles!

Rosie The Riveter

Representing strong, hardworking women in America, a Rosie the Riveter costume requires just a denim jumpsuit, a bandana, and a fierce attitude!

Snapchat Filters

We’ve moved on from emojis to Snapchat filters, and I think they are both more fun and easier to pull off!

Simply using a square cardboard cutout, paint a caption on the bottom (don’t forget all the likes!), and you’re transformed into a live Instagram photo.
