Make This Year’s Halloween Costumes A Throwback To Your Childhood
Like most other 90s kids, I find myself missing the 90s! While I don’t think I can do without all the new technology and the current fashion trends, I do miss all the amazing movies and TV shows from the era.

4. Cher from Clueless
The great thing about channeling Cher from Clueless is that most of her outfits were fashion statements, so it won’t be hard to find a mini skirt suit and white knee socks.
5. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
If you’re going out with a twin, or even just a friend, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen make for easy Halloween costume ideas! Just find a pair of matching over-alls, a bright tee, and matching blonde wigs.
6. Wednesday Addams
All 90s kids remember The Addams Family, and Wednesday Addams is one of those super easy Halloween costume ideas! Just find a black fit and flare dress with long sleeves, and layer it over a white collared shirt. Then just braid your hair and rock a smokey eye and you’re good to go!
Growing up, Madeline was one of my favorite cartoons. Hearing the opening narration makes me so nostalgic! It’s really easy to dress up as Madeline as well. Just look for a yellow or blue shift dress, then pair with knee socks, Mary Janes, and a hat.
8. The Spice Girls
The Spice Girls brought girl power to the 90s. So if you’re going out with your friends this Halloween, go as this iconic girl group!
9. Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion
Easy Halloween costumes are also an excuse to wear outfits you wouldn’t be able to wear everyday. Glitter dresses with silver pumps would look tacky on any other day. But if you’re going as Romy and Michelle, you’ve nailed your 90s Halloween costume.
