We've rounded up a list of some of the most popular Halloween costumes and what you need to dress the part, and we've included a list of where you can buy them online. Whether you want to dress up as something scary like a killer clown or something cute like a cheerleader, we've got you covered.
Most popular Halloween costumes for 2021
If you've got very limited time to organise your Halloween costume, get your hands on an old white sheet, poke some holes for your eyes and you've instantly transformed into a ghost. Boo!
A witch is one of the most popular and easiest Halloween costumes. Dress in black, add some green face makeup and get your hands on a pointed hat and broomstick.
These blood-sucking creatures are one of the most classic costumes. You can opt to dress in all-black but you will definitely need some fake blood.
Another popular costume that will need a lot of fake blood is a zombie. There isn't really a set dress code for this one – just make sure your clothing is all torn up.
If you're going to embrace your inner clown, you can take it one of two ways – something fun like the classic clown you see at birthday parties, or one that's a little more scary (think Pennywise from It).
Dressing up as a pirate works for men, women and kids. Rather than creating it at home, it's best to purchase a ready-made costume as this looks a lot more realistic.
Turn back time and get inspired by the fashion from the 60s and 70s. A hippie costume is nothing without a pair of circle sunglasses, flowers and colourful clothing.
Embrace your inner Baywatch and get inspired by your resident lifeguard. All you'll really need is a mix of red and white clothing, as well as a whistle to complete the look.
Let your inner dark side come out to play with a devil costume this Halloween. You can choose to dress in either red or black – but you must include a pair of devil horns.
Oh hello angel! If you're keen to dress like an angelic figure this year, gather all your white clothing pieces and a pair of wings.
Have you got school spirit? A cheerleader is one of the most basic dress-up ideas and can be found at a number of costume shops.
If you've been hit by the love bug, why not dress up as cupid? You can dress in either red or white, but you will definitely need a pair of wings, and a bow and arrow.
