HOUSTON (KIAH) — Halloween is fast approaching, and 2023 costume trends are heating up for women looking for the perfect one. Pop culture-inspired costumes tend to be hugely popular each year and this season is no different. Boohoo did some research and based on internet search data and recent media hype, 3 top costumes were determined to be most popular for Halloween this year.
At the top of the list is everyone’s favorite fashion doll – Barbie. With the “Barbiecore” aesthetic trending in 2023, the new film starring Margot Robbie, major media buzz, searches for “Barbie costume” averaged 18,000 monthly worldwide. Don’t want to go all pink? Some variations of the Barbie look include ‘80s aerobics Barbie, roller skating Barbie, and any of Barbie’s 200+ careers for an iconic look.
In second place, pulling 8,000 average monthly searches is newly-live action Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. The recent remake has propelled the “Ariel costume” princess icon back into the spotlight. Expect lots of purple seashell bras and green mermaid skirts this Halloween.
Bridgerton’s Queen Charlotte came in third among top trending costumes for 2023. Stylish fans might be eager to recreate the Netflix hit’s opulent Regency-era gowns and elegance. To achieve this look, experiment with stunning wigs, lavish makeup, and period-perfect jewelry to achieve a complete royal look.
Although the film came out in early 2023, horror icon M3GAN is another one of this year’s most popular costumes for those choosing a scarier costume choice. Recreate the murderous doll’s iconic outfit by layering a beige dress over a striped long-sleeve top with white tights, along with ballet flats and M3GAN’s signature blue and red striped kerchief or scarf. Pair this with some round sunglasses to complete the look and don’t forget to learn some of M3GAN’s killer dance moves to impress your friends.
