Between the streaming dramas on Netflix and classic sitcoms we’ve become familiar with thanks to reruns, we can always count on TV shows to give us some of the best ideas for Halloween costumes. Besides, it’s always more fun when someone recognizes who you’re dressed as. (Much better than having to explain your obscure costume to everyone at the Halloween party.) If you aren’t sure where to start, let us help: We’ve pulled together some of our favorite shows where the fashion is just as notable as the plot lines. Whether you love getting together with your crew to watch reality TV (hi, fellow Bachelorette fans) or are here for period dramas (Downton Abbey, anyone?), the costume ideas are truly endless…

One of the best parts of The Bachelorette (besides the drama, of course) is seeing the glamorous dresses the contestants wear. Sport a glitzy ensemble with a beaded dress and simple earrings.

Between the everyday fashion and the wrestling costumes, Netflix’s GLOW is a treasure chest of costume ideas. Channel the show with a metallic bodysuit and an ’80s-appropriate wide belt.

You’ll never go wrong with a classic like Gossip Girl, which was known for its decadent fashion. Whether you’re a Queen B or more of a Serena, you’ll look so chic this Halloween.

Period drama The Crown has been giving us major retro vibes with Queen Elizabeth’s style. Channel your inner royal with a gorgeous gown and equally beautiful jewelry. Bonus points if you can score a crown of your own.

If you haven’t been watching Westworld, it’s time to start. The Wild West is a major reference for most of fall’s trends, ICYMI.

Between the bright colors and chic silhouettes, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has won our hearts. A bright pink dress and a coordinating overcoat will have you feeling like the comedy queen in minutes.

No matter how you want to dress, you can count on any one of the characters of Riverdale to provide any type of style you’re going for. From classic Veronica Lodge to sweet Betty Cooper (and even the edgier Cheryl Blossom), you’re bound to find a look for the night.

Sharp Objects is filled with the romance of the South. Tap into that Southern charm for Halloween this year with a flowing dress and a sun hat.

Time to decide on a costume!
