#1. Lorelai Gilmore (image source here)
What you need: An outfit (see below) and LOTS of coffee.
+ Work Lorelai: A nice pant or skirt suit and coffee. Or a button down shirt with some kind of vest is also a pretty classic look.
+ Teenage Lorelai: Wear a band t-shirt that would drive Emily insane.
+ Frazzled Lorelai: Tie-dye shirt, cutoff shorts, cowboy boots and a long coat (anyone remember this classic look?). Oh, and coffee.
+ "I Smell Snow" Lorelai: A sweater, cute little beanie, a peacoat and the dreamy look of knowing that snow is just around the bend. And of course, coffee.
Here's some inspiration: coffee | coffee | coffee
#2. Rory Gilmore (image source here)
What you need: Depending on what version of Rory you're going for - a classic school uniform, headband and backpack is a classic look. Didn't go to private school? Wear a modest outfit and your nose in a book will do the trick. And a togo cup of coffee if you're going for collegiate Rory.
Where to find: Find a friend who has a school uniform, or just wear one of your classic looks and stick your nose in a book. #simple
Here's some inspiration: book | book | book
#3. Luke Danes (image source here)
What you need: Flannel and a backwards baseball cap. Legit simplest. costume. EVER.
Where to find: Well, flannel is everywhere... But if you don't own any (or a baseball cap) there's a good chance one of your friends will own these things already in their classic. Otherwise, thrift store are an easy and affordable way to purchase these last minute!
Here's some inspiration: flannel | flannel | flannel
What you need: A school uniform or business casual outfit. Unless you're going for first post-break up Paris... Then you just need your pj's and bed head. AKA, just wake up and call it good!
Where to buy: I would think you own pj's, so that one is easy. A school uniform or biz cash outfit might be a little harder to find - but ask around or feel free to hit up a thrift store for some great options! Warning: watch out for shoulder pads in any business jackets. haha.

#5. Sookie St James (image source here)
What you need: A chef's outfit, bandana and spatula. If you want to throw in some bandages because classic Suki is always hurting herself accidentally... That would seal the deal.
