We know you’re already starting to plan what you’ll be wearing for Halloween this year—since it's next week and all—and if there’s a chance you’re looking to wear something that everyone will recognize, we’ve got you covered. Sure, there are plenty of pop culture costumes you could be thinking up right now, but sometimes you just want to wear some truly iconic Halloween costumes, and we’re here to support your efforts.

Don’t get us wrong: We love having the most original (and sometimes obscure) ideas when it comes to Halloween, but if you haven’t already worn these cult-favorite costumes, why not go for them now? If anything, you won’t have to explain your ensemble to anyone, and that’s a huge bonus if we’ve ever heard one. Go ahead and don your Cher Horowitz plaids and rattle off your favorite lines from Clueless or put on those pearls and head to Tiffany for breakfast. When you’re wearing these iconic (and fashionable) costumes, you just can’t go wrong.
