Prediction: These Will Be the Halloween Costumes Fashion Lovers Choose

We admit it—we have been known to find ourselves without a costume on the actual day of Halloween. But not this time around. There's no such thing as getting your look together too early, and with a year that's been jam-packed with memorable moments, there are plenty of recent pop cultural phenomenons that are worth re-creating, come October 31. So no excuses.

Since having so many options can be overwhelming, we're making things easy and narrowing it down to five simple yet incredibly savvy getups. Each look is inspired by a style icon who had us all talking, and when dressed in any of these looks, you're guaranteed to have a fighting chance in winning a costume contest. Plus, since they're all relevant to this year, no one will have to ask you what you're dressed as, they will know as soon as you walk in the room... If they've been paying attention, that is.
