Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie had us all dashing to the theaters (some of us more than once) like never before, and with Barbiecore hot pink bigger than ever, it's safe to say 2023 is the year of Barbie. So when it comes to Halloween costumes, why not take inspiration from the film that has taken over the box office and our personalities? In fact, we're predicting Barbie will be one of the trendiest, if not the trendiest Halloween costume of the year.

Thankfully, we've got plenty of source material to get inspired before the holiday arrives. There's the sweet-as-can-be Stereotypical Barbie with flowing blonde hair and vintage-esque gingham dress or you can go full disco with Girl's Night Barbie. Or maybe you want to channel your Kenergy and go with Casa Mojo Dojo House Ken and, of course, how could we forget Cowgirl Barbie? Thanks to the incredible costumes of Barbie, there's plenty of options to choose from.

Whether you make it a group costume or go solo, you really can't go wrong with a Barbie-inspired look this Halloween. Ahead, we've pulled the best pieces you need to create a head-to-toe Barbie look. The best part? Most of these finds can be incorporated into your closet, no heavy lifting required.

Stereotypical Barbie

Stereotypical Barbie is everything. We first see Barbie in Barbie Land sliding down from her magical Dreamhouse in an adorable gingham dress, matching pumps, and floral jewelry. For this classic look, think vintage silhouettes, pink plaid, and white accessories you'll want to wear long after Halloween is over.

Rollerblading Barbie

When the first Barbie photos of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling came to light, I knew we were in for a treat. Just look at how fun these rollerblading costumes are! If you're wanting to be comfy for Halloween (or just need an excuse to buy your own rollerblades), get your bike shorts and bodysuits ready. And if walking around on wheels doesn't sound like your speed, you can always opt for neon-bright sneakers—just don't forget the knee pads.

Cowgirl Barbie

Barbie's Western look is so fun, it makes me want to ditch my city style and embrace my country roots. I'll admit the hot pink vest and pants combo might be a tad over the top outside of Halloween, especially paired with a cowboy hat and bandana. But as individual pieces, you can get plenty of wear out of this costume any other time of the year.

Girl's Night Barbie

Every night is girl's night in Barbie Land. To recreate the '70s era look, grab the sparkliest golden jumpsuit you can get your hands on along with chunky bangles and matching gold pumps. If you really want to nail the look, tease your hair to the heavens à la Dolly Parton, and throw in a flowery hair clip. Thoughts of death and group-choreographed dances are not included.

Weird Barbie

You don't actually have to be in the splits for people to recognize you as Weird Barbie—although it would make for a killer Instagram post. Let your creativity flow with crazy doodles over your face and streaks in your hair (extra points if you go with a spiky blond wig). Add even more color with fun tights and a tutu. The weirder, the better is the best way to go here.

Vintage Barbie

The Barbie film pays tribute to so many iconic Barbies from years past. First and foremost, we see Margot Robbie as the splitting image of the 1959 Barbie, a.k.a. the first Barbie ever released. The look is a relatively easy one to imitate with a striped swimsuit, gold earrings, black peep-toe heels, and cat-eye sunnies. To complete the '50s glamour look, top it off with a classic red lip.

Fighting the Patriarchy Barbie

Barbie had the right idea when she wore a jumpsuit to take down the Kens and their patriarchy. A dress and heels just wouldn't have cut it. Greta Gerwig also opted for the comfy outfit while on-set, particularly the Pistola Grover Short Sleeve Field Suit, complete with plenty of pockets and a relaxed fit. Shop the jumpsuit below, grab your girlfriends, and fight the fight for gender equality.

Mermaid Barbie

Dua Lipa's Mermaid Barbie may have only had about five minutes of screen time, but that doesn't mean it was any less iconic. Embrace the aquatic lifestyle with a seashell bikini top, shiny printed skirt, and a long, luscious blue wig. To keep with the sea theme, accessorize with plenty of pearls.

President Barbie

It only makes sense Barbie would give us the first female president and that she would be a totally fabulous Issa Rae. In the Oval Office, President Barbie goes full glam with a sequin gown and statement necklace. Even when she's casually dropping f-bombs, she keeps it cool in a coordinating tracksuit. Whichever vibe you go for, don't forget your President sash.

Mojo Dojo Casa House Ken

As much as we're going to see all iterations of Barbie this Halloween, I can practically guarantee we going to see just as much of Ken, especially the Ken who's fully embraced the patriarchy. The iconic costume was practically made to recreate. To find your Kenergy, make sure you get the fluffiest fur jacket you can find, along with leather separates and equestrian-inspired jewelry. A guitar rendition of Matchbox Twenty's "Push" is totally optional.
