October has arrived, which means it’s officially time to think about Halloween. While Tiktok’s has been reeling off Halloween costume ideas since August (back off, TikTok!), you’re not alone if you’ve only started to ideate your look. But where to begin?
According to Google, last year’s most popular Halloween costumes were inspired by Squid Game, clowns and Harley Quinn. More fashionable choices like cowboy or cowgirl, Cruella de Vil and characters from Euphoria also trended. Meanwhile, this year promises to be big for Shania Twain, Barbie and Hocus Pocus. So what will you dress up as this spooky season?
If you’re looking for the Halloween costume ideas to make you stand out from the crowd, we got you! Scroll down for five fashionable costumes worth trying this year — plus, stylish finds to help you get the looks.
Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell
The fashion landscape would look very different without OG supermodels (and best friends) Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. The pair had MANY memorable looks, including their ensembles at the London Fashion Week Designer of the Year Awards in 1991. Naomi’s full Vivienne Westwood lewk is particularly worthy of a Halloween redo.
Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman
Every generation has its Selina Kyle. For us, it’s none other than Zoë Kravitz. Although a classic catsuit might be an obvious choice, the 2022 version of The Batman included many drool-worthy looks, including her leather-trench ensemble (one of the earliest costumes revealed to the public during the production). All you need for this modern femme-fatale Halloween costume is a shiny trench, fishnet stockings, lace-up boots and, most importantly, kohl eyeliner.
Singer (and now actor) Harry Styles’ world tour wardrobe, largely designed by Alessandro Michele of Gucci, brought metallics, flared pants and all sorts of playfulness to the stage. For one of his Coachella performances, Styles hopped on the Barbiecore trend by donning a monotone pink ensemble, including a metallic two-piece set and a shaggy faux-fur jacket. Of course, he completed the look with painted nails and his collection of conspicuous tattoos. It’s easily one of the best Halloween costume ideas of the year.
Drea and Eleanor from Do Revenge
One of the latest hit films by Netflix, Do Revenge features a pastel-hued wardrobe that’s made quite the impact on its audience. Costume designer Alana Morshead was inspired by South Korean school uniforms and created a candy-coloured world that will easily become the 2022 version of Heathers and Clueless. The best part? You can dress up with all of your friends for an easy group costume that has preppy flair.
Rihanna at Gucci Fall 2022
No one does fashion quite like Rihanna. The singer turns out look after look and her now-iconic maternity style basically broke the internet as fans eagerly waited to find out what she’d wear next. Why not recreate one of the most memorable ensembles, worn to the Gucci Fall 2022 show in Milan? The perk: It’s an easy Halloween costume if you’re expecting.
