    Rosie the Riveter

    This is one costume that will never go out of style. Instagram user @reginabeachua ditched the polka dot scarf in favor of a solid red color, but it still works. As long as you have the rolled-up sleeves, you're good to go. 

    What you'll need: A jean shirt and a red polka dot scarf. Big biceps are a bonus.
