    As a former Catholic school student, I can tell you that Britney Spears' most iconic music video look is pretty hard to achieve. Her cutesy schoolgirl outfit in "...Baby One More Time" didn't just happen. It takes a lot of time to properly hike up your pleated skirt and position a white blouse just so. But slide on some thigh-highs, add ribbons to your pigtails, and voila! Schoolgirl Britney has arrived to whatever Halloween party is in your iCal, with wine ready in her book bag.

    But what about Spears' other hits? "Toxic," "Stronger," and "Womanizer" have some pretty compelling Halloween looks, too. Instead of focusing on the present (the jury is still out on her G-Eazy collab), let's look at Britney in her prime. Nearly every Britney Spears video serves a look that would steal the spotlight at any Halloween party.

    So dig out your Curious perfume, slip into some leather, and pile on the jewelry. Being the best Britney Spears this Halloween will take everything you can find inyeah the back of your closet.

    "Piece Of Me"
    Fur Vest Britney

    Sometimes Britney gets a little fed up. "Piece of Me" was Brit at peak Leave Me Alone. Her wardrobe, then, is appropriately thrown-together. Live your life, because Blackout-era Britney Spears was intent on living hers.

    If you're down to saunter into the Halloween function as a Britney circa "Piece of Me," copy the video's most consistent look: A fur vest over a sparkly black bra, worn with low rise jeans.

    "Lucky"
    Old Hollywood Britney

    "This is a story about a girl named Lucky..."

    Remember the glitz and the glamour of Hollywood's golden age? The furs! The gowns! Tears shed because we're all nothing but cogs in some big studio's starlet machine! Slip on a ball gown, sob in your mascara. Think about the existential trauma of only being famous for your movie star good looks. Make some random Titanic reference, and it's showtime.

    "Toxic"
    Flight Attendant Britney

    Wouldn't you feel just a little bit safer if you knew your flight attendant was able to shimmy the plane to safety? Also acceptable in this video is the bedazzled bodysuit, if you have that kind of cash and time.

    "I'm A Slave 4 U"
    Hot, Sticky, Sweaty Britney

    Who made it through 2001 without wanting to be one of those dehydrated teens dancing with Britney in a post-apocalyptic America? This Neptunes' beat was the flyest thing to come out of Spears' entire career. Tease your hair, drench your abs in body oil, and bring the summer heat wave to your October party.

    "Stronger"
    All-Black, Metal Chair Britney

    If you're going to go for this look — and, of course, you should — remember the metal chair. It makes the look. The black bandeau, pants, and choker are all key, to be sure. but the metal diner chair really sells it.
