With Halloween just around the corner and life being busy AF for us boss ladies, who has the time to go shopping for a costume when you can shop in your own closet to recreate some of the hottest looks of the early ’00s?
It’s okay girl, we’ve all got a velour tracksuit tucked away somewhere. And if you don’t? We did some major digging around the good ol’ internet and found EVERYTHING you need to not only have the most FETCH Halloween ever but also reminisce in what might have been fashion’s most scandalous era!
See our top iconic looks to re-create from some of the Y2K era’s most loved celebrities and characters:
PARIS HILTON 21st BIRTHDAY
Probably known as one of the most iconic dresses of the age, Paris Hilton‘s 21st birthday dress leaves very little to the imagination and we say GO FOR IT! If you don’t have time to order this hot number online, we just spotted another an identical version in the window of WTFASH on Queen West in Toronto.
SIMPLE LIFE SEASON 1
Where the hell are we? Recreating The Simple Life (season 1) is the perfect BFF costume for the Paris to your Nicole, or vice versa. Hit up Sonic and find out of they in fact do sell wall stuff at Wal-Mart! That’s hot.
Leave Britney alone!! This is literally the comfiest costume you’ll ever find, plus you can bring your own snacks. You can even take it a step further and bring your own umbrella as we all remember that iconic Brit moment.
Time to rock out with your, well you know the rest. This Tara Reid look definitely takes the cake as the most scandalous costume of the bunch, but possibly the easiest to recreate! Loves it.
Be “like, really pretty” as Regina George for Halloween this year. As the school’s Queen Bee and resident hottie, you’ll be a hit at any party. Bonus points if you bring your own Kalteen bars!
REGINA GEORGE “BOOB SHIRT”
How could we choose between these iconic Regina George looks? This low effort costume just requires a pair of scissors and a quick snip and you’re ready to go! So fetch.
Get some major snaps as Elle Woods — every fashion girl’s favourite lawyer — complete with a mini Bruiser! All you have to do to rock this look create a well-coordinated ensemble that includes every shade of pink worn from head-to-toe.
LINDSAY LOHAN + SAM RONSON
Another great BFF or couple’s costume that likely won’t require much shopping = Lindsay + Sam. As one of the it-couples of the 00’s, all you need to replicate this look is to look like you’re about to hit the decks and get up in da club. Take things one step further by accessorizing with Red Bull and a chic ankle monitor.
Jenny From The Block
The OG J.Lo aka Jenny from the block! This is a costume that everyone will remember and be a little jealous that they didn’t think of it first. Don’t skimp on that highlighter either – you gotta get that J.Lo glow!
Show some skin this year as Mariah Carey in her Butterfly heyday. This hottie-with-a-body costume will turn heads at the party and you know those butterfly clips would make Mimi proud!
