The Top 5 Trendy Halloween Costumes For 2021

If you’ve checked off all of the classic Halloween costumes, from witches, to scarecrows, and vampires, it may be time to try something different this year. Especially if you’re looking to win creativity points and stand out from the crowd, your best bet is to choose something current that hasn’t been done previously. When done right, trendy costumes that tap into recent events or pop culture can be incredibly clever, entertaining, and a time capsule for years to come.

A good place to start when deciding on which theme to choose is to consider the most popular characters in entertainment at the moment. Costumes based on well-known TV series like Friends and Schitt’s Creek are always crowd-pleasers because they include iconic references from memorable episodes. Other sources to draw from are the top movies of the moment, along with famous musicians and other celebrities. If none of those options suit you, you might also pick a product mascot, comic book character, or other figure that’s made a lasting impression. To get your inspiration flowing, we have some trendy ideas for 2021, along with the costume pieces you’ll need to nail each look.

Wanda Maximoff from WandaVision

Following the epic conclusion to Avengers: Endgame, the superhero adventures of Wanda and Vision continued this year in the popular Disney+ series WandaVision. The show tracks the couple as sitcom stars across different decades in television, which means there are many signature Wanda looks to choose from. If you decide to stick with her most modern look that appeared in the Avengers series, you'll want to piece together her trademark jacket, an auburn wig, leather gloves, and tall boots.

While Cruella may not be the newest character on this list, her look has gotten an update this year thanks to Disney's new live-action film Cruella starring Emma Stone. The movie explores Cruella's past as a young fashion hopeful, so naturally any of her costumes will make you the envy of your Halloween celebration. To re-create one of her most recognizable moments, you'll need a wig with her signature black and white hair, a red dress, red gloves, and a black masquerade mask.

Cobra Kai

If you can't get the Cobra Kai motto out of your head ("Strike first. Strike hard. No mercy!") then this is the costume for you. The dojo popularized by the Karate Kid franchise has made a comeback recently as the subject of the Netflix series Cobra Kai. You can choose to dress up as a specific character from the dojo, or a generic Cobra Kai student dressed in uniform. You'll need a black gi, belt, headband and red leather jacket (if you're going for the Johnny Lawrence look).

Even though Taylor Swift's newest albums debuted in 2020, many Swifties are still living in the ethereal fantasy world she created in Folklore and Evermore. This latest iteration of Taylor's style features whimsical dresses, cozy knit sweaters, and other thick garments that are perfect for chilly Fall weather. To re-create the Folklore album cover in particular, you'll need a blonde wig, white dress, plaid overcoat, and of course her signature red lipstick.

Daphne Bridgerton from Bridgerton

Fans of this steamy Netflix series based on the novels by Julia Quinn can be the belle of the ball this Halloween. The show features a distinctive cast of characters, each with their own ensemble, that reflects the early 1800s time period the show takes place in. Lady Whistledown, Simon Basset, and Marina Thompson are all recognizable characters, but the most well known is Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor. To re-create her look, you'll need a gown, gloves, feather hat, and pearl necklace.
