So die-hard Halloween fanatics are going to give me grief for this one - and I know it isn't Regan MacNeil or Corpse Bride or anything remotely scary - but if you're looking for a costume you can easily throw together from items that probably exist in your wardrobe, then stick around.

This look is best accessorized with tasteful patent, knee high socks and an over-sized 90s cell phone (you can always find them in the gadgets section of thrift stores).

So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair (eww!) and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon?

Here is your ultimate thrift-store wish list to achieving that Clueless look:
