Gossip Girl

The reboot of Gossip Girl has a style for everyone. Between preppy and edgy for Julien, sweet and preppy for Monet, or glamorous and feminine for Luna, we’re sure you have something in your wardrobe that works for one of these characters.


Whether you want to dress as Simon, Daphne, Penelope, the Bridgerton family, or Queen Charlotte, you’ll need Regency-era pieces like corsets, gowns, vests, and suits.

Never Have I Ever

For a group of three, Devi, Fabiola, and Eleanor from Never Have I Ever are great choices. For Devi just pull out a chunky knit sweater and colorful pants, for Fabiola a robotics club uniform, and Eleanor a bright shirt, flower skirt, and pearls.


A great couple’s costume for Marvel lovers is Wanda and Vison from WandaVision. Vision can be achieved with red and silver face paint and an outfit inspired by one of the decades. All you need for Wanda’s outfit is red hair and an outfit from one of the decades or her Scarlet Witch costume.

Only Murders in the Building

Selena Gomez is killing it with Mabel Mora’s style ’70s style in Only Muders in the Building. You’ll need plaid pants, a mustard sweater, a furry coat, a yellow knit beanie, round sunglasses, gold hoop earrings, and brown combat boots.
