FACT: You can never go wrong as this plaid-clad trio from the '90s cult classic. As if!

2. Corey Mason from Empire Records

This look from another timeless teen flick is pretty easy: Just go in a belly button-baring sweater, plaid pleated skirt, and black leather boots, and put on a pout that would make Liv Tyler proud.

3. Vivian Ward from Pretty Woman

If you’re going as this sexy streetwalker, take pointers from Emma Roberts, who dressed as the character that launched Aunt Julia to superstardom for Halloween in 2012.

4. Daria Morgendorffer and Jane Lane from Daria

It’s pretty easy to score costumes inspired by these MTV cartoon characters, but your most important accessory is the eternally bored expression. Katy Perry totally nailed it when she and  friend Shannon Woodward went as the deadpan duo in 2012.

5. Britney Spears in the "…Baby One More Time" music video

Do Brit-Brit’s version of a sexy schoolgirl and tie a white button-down beneath your chest. You’ll surely have the boys going, “Oh baby, baby…”

6. Gwen Stefani

Make like Gwen from her No Doubt days and stick a bindi to your forehead, sport a midriff-baring crop top, and wear your hair in mini-buns like these. Don’t forget the barely there brows; they were big in the ‘90s.

7. Spice Girls

Get your girlfriends together and spice up your Halloween selves by playing Ginger, Baby, Sporty, Scary, and Posh. (Tip: Call dibs on your pick ASAP, before someone beats you to your favorite Spice Girl.)

8. TLC

Here’s another '90s girl group you should pay tribute to this Halloween. To go as T-Boz, Left-Eye, and Chili, wear crop tops with oversized overalls, make sure your underwear waistband is showing, and don’t leave home without the swag.

9. Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls

How about joining forces as The Powerpuff Girls? Just show up in identical-looking pink, blue, and green dresses, and you’re all set to save the world before—or okay, after—bedtime.

10. Sailor Soldiers from Sailor Moon

Score any of the Sailor Moon characters’ ultra-short costumes for Halloween, and by the end of the night, you might just find your very own Tuxedo Mask.

11. Trinity from The Matrix

Transform into this sci-fi heroine with slicked-back short hair, a skintight black top and pants, and black sunnies. Ass-kicking pose, optional.

12. Morticia Addams from The Addams Family

Channel Morticia with a mermaid-style black dress that will make blood-red lips and death-pale skin stand out even more. Too goth for you? Put on a black dress with a white collar, fix your mane into two braided pigtails, and go as Wednesday Addams instead.

13. Clarissa Darling from Clarissa Explains It All

Serve up some ‘90s fashion realness by going as Nickelodeon’s Clarissa! Wear a skirt with tights, a vest over a shirt, and basically look like you wore all the clothes in your closet in one go.

14. Pink Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Go for some major throwback LOLs by getting a Pink Ranger costume just for the occasion, because admit it: Y’all wanted to be Pink Ranger when you were a kid. (Sorry, Yellow Ranger.)

15. Queen Amidala from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Okay, so you’d have to be nuts to actually attempt Padmé Amidala’s elaborate garb, but if you manage to pull it off, you’ll be winning Halloween this year, baby.
