Sort of like your wedding, Halloween demands that you mull over your outfit months in advance, even though you're most likely to only wear it once. If you don't feel like pulling out all the sartorial stops for what's not widely considered the most important day of your life, that's more than okay you can still easily rustle up something presentable, and, more importantly, easily recognizable by dressing up like a celebrity in their most iconic look. Chances are you already have the makings of a great costume in your closet.

The keys to transforming into America's pop princess? A gray cardigan, a white button-down shirt (tied ever so seductively around the waist), a hot pink bra, a black miniskirt, knee-high socks, clunky black shoes, and pigtails. Do not—I repeat—do not forget the pigtails.

The wig says it all, really. (But if you can't locate a wig store in time, mega bangs, black and white hairspray, and the largest bow humanly possible will do.)

Dig up the Juicy sweatsuit hiding in the back of your closet, grab a pair of oversize sunglasses, and a blonde wig (if you're not a natural blonde). Bonus points for a chihuahua.

Straighten your hair, slip on a tight, cleavage-baring (and preferably nude) dress, and finish the look with peep-toe boots (and a phone ripe for selfie-taking).
