Round up your closest friends (who hopefully all look like each other) and wear pastel button-downs, shrunken cardigans, and blue jeans. Throw a middle part and headband in there for good measure.

We know you’ve got a pair (or five) of mum jeans laying around, wear them with a white or neon tee, Keds, and call it a night!

Aside from the fact that we would never pass up the opportunity to look like Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie, having an excuse to wear baggy clothes and sport a wig is pretty wicked.

If you’re up for the challenge, tease your hair and sport a cream-coloured turtleneck to recreate Cameron Diaz’s character in Being John Malkovich. You’ll attract all the right attention, trust us.

Doug Funny

Fact: You will make significantly more friends at a costume party if you are dressed up as Doug. Plus, you'll also remember how comfortable khakis are and likely not want to take them off.

Seinfeld is quintessential for the normcore look, so make a run to your closest thrift store, pick up a floral or paisley dress, and pair it with socks and brogues à la Elaine Benes.
