From Bernie to Bennifer, 2021 was filled with iconic moments that make easy and memorable last-minute costumes.

Expect to see Squid Game costumes everywhere this year. You can buy a shirt inspired by the show on Amazon, but if you don’t even have time for that, head to the hardware store and stick some mailbox numbers on a tee or track jacket.@Netflix/Instagram
If you want to get super meta, dress as Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker dressed as Sid Vicious and Nancy. Otherwise, the hot new couple just being themselves makes a great costume, you’ll just need tons of black clothes and temporary neck tattoos.@KourtneyKardash/ Instagram
Yep, the Great British Bake Off is the most soothing costume of all time. Best of all, you can just wear an apron over your normal clothes and carry a rolling pin or a piping bag (and bonus points if you speak in a British accent all night).@britishbakeoff/ Instagram
There’s bound to be a ton of Ted Lasso costumes at Halloween parties this year, but Roy and Keeley from the Netflix show make a fun couples costume. If you have all black you’re set for Roy, and Keeley wears lots of jackets and layered necklaces.@officialtedlasso/ Instagram
#BamaRush took TikTok by storm, largely because of the bubbly University of Alabama sorority rushees sharing outfit details (lots of sparkly jewelry, sorority tees, and clothes from Shein and Lulus). If you rock this costume, you have to make an OOTD video. @dollypartonwannabe02/ TikTok
Say what you will about Emily In Paris, but the show featured some great clothes. With Season 2 coming up on Dec. 22, channel your inner Emily this Halloween with a beret and a statement coat or mini skirt.@emilyinparis/ Instagram
The reunion of Bennifer was a joyful surprise amidst a dismal year. Recreate the iconic J.Lo and Ben duo in a couples costume by wearing monochrome looks (he wears black and sneakers, she often wears brown and oversized shades).Gotham/GC Images, Getty Images
If you have mittens, a blue medical mask, and a puffy jacket, you’re well on your way to becoming the Bernie Sanders meme. Plus, if you wear a Bernie-at-the-inauguration costume, you’ll be warm all night and you have an excuse to sit down.@BernieSanders/Instagram
