When it comes to style icons, real-life fashion figures like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot get all of the credit. But what about our favorite cartoon characters?

Since these were some of the first images to be ingrained in our little style psyches, we decided to shine the spotlight on some very deserving 'toons. See our list below and tell us if we missed any of your favorites!

1. Arnold from "Hey Arnold!"
That plaid shirt, those skinny pants and the semi-ironic baseball cap: Was he not the original hipster?

2. Quinn Morgendorffer from "Daria"
Quinn's smiley face crop top was definitely one of the coolest garments in cartoon existence. She said it best herself: "I want to be a role model for all you people, even the ones who need makeup really badly."
