Halloween group costumes present an opportunity for us to selfishly indulge in recreating the most iconic looks from the past like Saved By the Bell 鈥 quite possibly one of my personal all-time favorites鈥 until now that is. Moving up quickly in rank as one of the Most. Fun. Group. Costumes. Ever is The Breakfast Club. Featuring the most dysfunctional, witty, authentic, heartfelt group of stereotypical personas, these guys challenge your perspective by exposing their deepest secrets while unexpected relationships and friendships form over the duration of an eight-hour eventful detention period. Whether you鈥檙e a product of the 鈥80s or not, this film is a must-watch classic that brings on all the feels!

John Bender: 鈥淎 Criminal鈥

I sourced John鈥檚 entire look at a thrift store and in Zane鈥檚 personal wardrobe. Pretty much the same staple pieces of a male wardrobe, paired together with that massive 鈥80s babe vibe. It totally helps that Zane鈥檚 hair is already the exact replica of John鈥檚, but otherwise just pick up a wig from your local costume shop! I did snag the gloves from Amazon. A little extra hack is to cut off the sleeves of the flannel and use the arm as the bandana around his right ankle so you don鈥檛 have to purchase one.

Claire Standish: 鈥淎 Princess鈥

For Claire鈥檚 amazeballs look, I snagged this pink v-neck t-shirt on Amazon Prime. Pro tip: Buy it a couple sizes larger than you would wear. The wrap skirt was a blessing because I found it at the Goodwill. Even though the pattern isn鈥檛 the same, it has the same color zone and silhouette. I had the boots and belt in my wardrobe. Her brown leather watch I borrowed from a co-worker, but maybe you have one to throw in the mix! Her hair was the more challenging find, but I ended up grabbing this wig and gave it a trim while it was on.

Andrew Clarke: 鈥淎n Athlete鈥

A must-buy is this letterman jacket from Amazon! I added the S patch and the arm patch with paper and applied it with fashion tape 鈥 but you could get an actual patch if you want to take it to the next level. The wig was from a costume I had done last year 鈥 the trick is to take a razor to it to get that choppy silhouette of John鈥檚 preppy boy haircut. As for the jeans, hoody and shoes, we went with what Kurt had so we could save a little. Again, take it to the next level with all white shoes.

鈥淲e鈥檙e all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that鈥檚 all.鈥

Allison Reynolds: 鈥淎 Basket Case鈥

Grab a pair of grey leggings (these are from Walgreens), some white socks, a pair of chucks with black laces, a mid-length skirt (with a similar color scheme) and the most important piece 鈥 the over-sized black sweater and a scarf. Most of this was found at the Goodwill and the rest was in my closet! Roxy鈥檚 hair is similar to Allison鈥檚 so I just curled it all forward and pinned it in a way to really frame her face.

Brian Johnson: 鈥淎 Brain鈥

Brian Johnson Breakfast Club Halloween Costume

The easiest of the bunch was Brian鈥檚 character. Sean had the shoes, socks and pants and we just ordered that trademark green sweatshirt and knock-off ray-bans to take it to the next level. The wig is only necessary if your hair isn鈥檛 similar 鈥 but this little gem of a wig is perfect with a trim!

鈥淲ell everyone鈥檚 home life is unsatisfying. If it wasn鈥檛, people would live with their parents forever.鈥
