If you and your friend want to have the most Insta worthy costumes, look no further. Here are the top five dynamic duo costumes for this year.

1. Cher and Dionne from "Clueless"
Name a more timeless duo to dress up as this Halloween. Cher and Dionne rock their classic plaid sets around school, just like you can around Oxford. Cher flaunts her yellow plaid skirt and blazer with kneehigh socks. Make sure you don’t forget her fuzzy pink pen. Dionne’s black and white plaid set is complete with her red sweater underneath, and of course her signature statement hat.

2. Cassie and Maddy from "Euphoria"
Transform into Cassie and Maddy with your bestie this Halloween. Although the pair’s friendship drowns in drama on screen, they rocked the world off TV, creating iconic looks that fans love. If you’re going for Maddy’s edgy vibe, tap into clothing like bodycon dresses, mini skirts or crop tops and don’t forget her winged eyeliner and dramatic eyeshadow.
On the other hand, if you’re going for more of a girly look, Cassie’s wardrobe full of pinks and pastels is just for you. If you want a matching look between the pair, the iconic scene of Cassie and Maddy in matching jumpsuits and handbags will surely capture everyone’s attention.

3. Serena and Blair from "Gossip Girl"
Every blonde needs their brunette best friend, just like Serena and Blair. Pulling off the elitist New York City fashion is a tough task, but S&B’s distinguishable private school uniform look is a go-to if you want to feel like an Upper East Sider. Grab a white button down, plaid skirt, tie and headband to effortlessly pull off this school girl look.

4. Velma and Daphne from "Scooby Doo"
"Scooby Doo" costumes will never go out of style. All orange is the way to go for Velma’s look, topped off with her signature black frame glasses. As for Daphne, pair a purple dress with a green neck scarf to complete her look. This costume is flexible, and you could mix and match characters for your duo, or expand to include the whole "Scooby Doo" gang!

5. Regina and Cady from "Mean Girls"
Going as a frenemy duo is an iconic look and Regina and Cady from "Mean Girls" are the perfect combo. There are many looks from the 2004 comedy to recreate between Regina and Cady. You could pull off Cady’s look before becoming a “Plastic” with her pink oversized polo and jeans whereas Regina flaunts a miniskirt, tank top, pink button up sweater and a handbag. On the other hand, you could recreate the infamous Christmas concert scene where the Plastics show off in Santa dresses. Either way, "Mean Girls" is a classic that everyone loves and will surely get recognition.
