1. Native American costumes (even worse, sexy Native American costumes)- You could apply this to any racial/ cultural appropriation nonsense. If you wouldn't go out in blackface, why would you go out looking like this? You are embarrassing yourself and caricaturing multiple cultures at once. I know that this is still a hot button issue, but if you want to go out in nearly nothing, there are so many options that don't have to be disrespectful of anyone. Just icky. Plus, we have all seen it a million times, so you are both offensive and boring- time to turn it in.

2. Audrey Hepburn (specifically, Breakfast at Tiffany's Audrey Hepburn)- I am not against tutus of any kind, but I don't get the Audrey Hepburn thing, and I am even more perplexed by how many girls she appeals to in a deep, yet totally superficial way. Is it just wanting to wear the tiara? The strange juxtaposition between classy and trashy? That everyone already owns a black dress? I really don't get it, but I do think if you have to do Audrey, at least try Roman Holiday Audrey or if you are really ambitions, let's see a sexy My Fair Lady costume. Large hats are coming up for a real comeback.

3. The Joker- If I could, I would hit some serious breaks on all these played out superhero costumes, but this feels the most egregious. I mean, how many years ago was that movie? Just be someone else. If you want to wear makeup, and who can blame you, it is super fun, come up with something else. This one has been done so many times at this point.
