10 Trendy costume ideas for Halloween

A few ideas for Halloween costumes

It’s that time of year again, the temperature’s dropping, nature's colours are changing, and spooky season is right around the corner but that begs the question, what to wear for Halloween? We have a few ideas.

The Gothic Witch, £9.99

One staple Halloween outfit is the witch, of course it comes with a top hot and broom. So it's just about spooky as it gets and definitely a look that we would recommend.


Retro Gothic Two Piece, £17.99 

There’s a touch of class to this pinstripe outfit. It’s retro and old timey but with a slightly modern, eery touch to it—it’s definitely something to stand out in.


Evil Dog Lady, £17.99 

This outfit has a touch of sophistication about it and stands out with it's two-tone wig and polkadot top half, it's something different from the usual so it's worth a try.


Morticia Addams Costume, £54.99

How could a Halloween list be complete without an Addams Family addition? That’s why we’re including Morticia’s darkly stylish and now iconic gothic look.


Unisex Black Hooded Cape, £16.99  

This unisex cape is a bit of an all-rounder, you can use it to add to other costumes or make a new one. Vampire? Sure. Wizard or sorcerer? Why not. The only limit here is your imagination.


Triangle Mask, £11.99

The Squid Game mask was all the rage last Halloween and for good reason, it's a simple but well known look, pair it with a red hoodie and you’re good to go.


Adult Eleven Costume (Stranger Things), £43.99

Everyone loves a bit of Stranger Things, don’t they? With Eleven’s famous look from the show, you too can focus your superpowers, or at least look like you are.


The Penguin, £41.99

We know that a lot of people go as The Joker for Halloween but how many Penguins do you see? Well, here’s something different, to bring a touch of Gotham swagger to your Halloween party this year.


Hermione Granger Robe, £52.99 

This is a no-brainer for any Harry Potter fans out there, you can look like one of the best characters from the series—or the best depending on who you ask. Show off your magical prowess and represent Gryffindor in style.


Karate Kai Costume, £39.99

With Cobra Kai all the rage, this karate outfit feels very timely, though this also serves as a cool ensemble piece, show off your martial arts skills and maybe sweep a leg or two.
