We love a good excuse to shop for Halloween, especially when we're inspired by someone's style we really, really admire. And sure, that includes popular fictional TV characters as far as we're concerned. After all, who wouldn't want to dress up like Chester from Generation in red plaid cargos that can be repurposed later? Or use a Gossip Girl costume as a reason to finally splurge on that designer bag? (OK, that may be a bit of a stretch. Calm down, wallet.)
We sourced some affordable sites and vintage shops to help you re-create fashionable looks from TV moments that have become iconic in 2021. We know we're not the only ones still referencing them when we get dressed or indulge in a spree, so chances are, you'll definitely gain some recognition with your outfit at the Halloween party (or, you know, on Instagram — since it's still important to stay safe out there!) Keep reading for 13 great ideas, from Fatin on The Wilds to Emily in Paris, and the basics you'll need to bring them to fruition.
