11 Halloween Costume Ideas To Wear This Year

11 Halloween Costume Ideas To Wear This Year

Believe it or not, Halloween is around the corner and will be here before we know it! If you haven’t put any thought into your costume yet, we get it. But unless you want to show up to your Halloween festivities in some cat ears and eyeliner whiskers (no hate here), it’s probably time to start planning a costume. Whether you want to go full out or play it more casual – we’ve gathered some of the best Halloween costume inspiration to help you decide! 

There are so many great costumes to choose from!


With the Barbie movie having premiered this year, we expect to see a lot of Barbie-themed costumes this Halloween! You can opt to go as Traditional Barbie or get creative and go as one of the many other Barbies featured in the movie (Weird Barbie would be iconic)! You can even make it a couple costume and go with someone as Barbie and Ken. 

Wednesday Addams

Wednesday Addams has always been a classic (and great) Halloween costume. And it’s not all that difficult to pull off! Put on a chic black Wednesday-esque outfit, throw in 2 braids, and finish off the look with some dark eye makeup, and you’re pretty much set. 

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is not-so-arguably the most well-known celeb out there. Her recognizable looks make for great costumes. You can play it simple by wearing a 22-themed t-shirt stating one of its famous lines, such as “not a lot going on the moment,” or go more elaborate with something very bedazzled, paired with a red lip to tie it all together. Bonus points if you can get someone to dress up as Travis Kelce to go with you!

The Little Mermaid

The live-action The Little Mermaid premiered this year, so naturally, we expect to see some Ariels swimming along the consume parties this Halloween! You can have a lot of fun putting together an Ariel costume. The main things you’ll need are a mermaid-like skirt and a shell bra top. The rest is essentially hair and makeup! 

Tinkerbell / Fairy

You can never go wrong with a classic Tinkerbell or fairy costume if you want to look cute but still festive on Halloween! Find some fairy wings, a mini dress, and sparkles (ahem, pixie dust), and that’s pretty much all you need! 

Red Riding Hood

Another Halloween classic. Little Red Riding Hood! Everyone will know who you’re dressed up as, and you can easily make the costume yourself or shop in-store if getting crafty isn’t your thing. 

Angel / Devil

The ultimate yin and yang Halloween costume has to be an angel and devil duo. You can obviously choose one and wear it solo as well, but this costume holds the most power when it’s worn with your bestie. Especially if you two happen to give off yin and yang energy. 

The Office Characters

Any and all of The Office cast members would make for a great Halloween costume that anyone worth knowing would understand (kidding, kind of). We’re loving this Dwight and Angela duo!


Name a monster more cool-looking than Medusa. We’ll wait. If you want to look scary yet still feel kind of cute, Medusa is the way to go. In our opinion, the best Medusa costumes are hand-made, so if you’re crafty, this one’s for you! Create a snake crown and consider investing in some creepy contacts, and the rest will fall into place. 

The Princess Diaries

A fun, notable Halloween costume is Mia from The Princess Diaries! It was announced that we can expect a Princess Diaries 3 in the future, so what better time than now to dress up as such? The main elements of the costume are a wedding-like dress, tiara, and of course, headphones. 

Pulp Fiction

Last but not least, coincidentally, another Mia costume! Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction is such an easy costume to put together yet is still so recognizable with the help of a chic black bob wig and a fake nosebleed. The rest of the costume you likely already have in your closet!
