We’re still in denial over the fact that 2016 is ending in three weeks (it’s OK—just breathe; we’ll get through this together), and that 2017 is about to hit us in the face with a whole set of new surprises, like what’s going to happen to Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, what color Kylie Jenner will dye her hair for the billionth time, and whether or not the country will devolve into a dumpster fire under the new president’s reign. (It’s like a reality show, but scarier!)

Click through to see our favorite looks, reminisce for a hot second, and then brace yourself for 2017. It’s coming.
