The upcoming Barbie movie, starring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken, may not be dropping until next year. But that's not stopping all sorts of Barbie-core trends from taking over right now. We've been surviving off of leaked photos (Hot Skatin' Barbie, anyone?) and the most epic Barbie-inspired styles all summer long. (Have you seen the FUNBOY Barbie Swim collection?!) Now, it's time for you to level up your Barbie-core devotion...for Halloween!

Ahead, you'll find outfits channeling all sorts of possible of-the-moment Barbie vibes that you can wear to any costume party (or any day, TBH). Are you ready to meet Gen Z Barbie, Kardashian Barbie, TikTok Barbie, and Coachella Barbie, and more? Read on for the 11 best Barbie costume ideas to consider this Halloween. Given all the hype surrounding our fave doll on the big screen, we know you'll win in these pink-splashed 'fits.

PS: If you wanna take a quick trip down memory lane, you def need to check out these iconic (and expensive) Barbie dolls, ASAP.

If we didn't have a Kardashian-centric Barbie option, I think we'd have a serious problem. When you think curve-hugging leather (or latex) mini dress, you think Kardashian. This look is v Kim, no? It’s so reminiscent of her “Balanci Barbie” moment earlier this summer. Add some extra shine with a bold gold necklace that'll pair perfectly with the dress' strapless silhouette, and make it a monochrome moment with these gorge pastel pink mules.

Fall, who? If warm breezes and sandy beaches are perpetually calling your name, check out this vacay-ready Barbie 'fit. Even if there's a chill in the air, you'll be bringing the heat this Halloween with this stunning cut-out midi dress, geometric gold earrings, and green statement sandals.

This Halloween, show 'em that the excitement and chaos of fashion month has nothin' on you. Why not slay with this street style-worthy OOTD? Bonus: it's also super comfy! You'll look ready to sit front row at all the shows in this fluffy pink mini dress, colorful Nike dunks, and a highlighter green crossbody bag. Genius idea: have a photog friend snap some "candid" pics as you strut down the street, totally nonchalantly, to nail that full fashion influencer effect.

It's giving: "I deserve the finer things in life." And to that, we say: yes, yes, you do. We’re completely heart-eyes over this luxurious gown paired with sculptural gold statement sandals When it's time to step onto your yacht (or, you know, give your feet a break from heels), slip into these strappy flats in a gorge burgundy hue.

Desert fever? Opt for this festival-ready Barbie 'fit! This fun unitard's got a cheeky lips print and cut out ring detail to quench your thirst. Throw on some hot pink sunnies and flirty lace-up platforms, and you’re ready for all the main stage action.

This one’s especially #ForYou! (get it?) TikTok trend-obsessed Barbie is living her best life in a pink foil jumpsuit, white platform mules, and butterfly clips. We can’t wait to see the content you create in this stunner...

Let’s be real: You can never go wrong with cozy and cute. If you’re all about that WFH life and committed to staying in your pajamas as much as humanly possible, slip into either of these adorable pink PJs sets and a pair of fluffy hot pink slippers. Basically, it's the comfiest Halloween party 'fit imaginable, and the optimal uniform for all the holiday movie marathons to come once temps drop.

Ken, hold my purse, I’ve got work to do! With this show-stopping bubblegum pink three-piece suit, you’ll instantly become the business Barbie we all needed to see in childhood. It’ll look great with a luxe, neutral briefcase-like bag and slick matching pumps. Or, you can totally rock a bold Barbiecore power suit like Khloe Kardashian, if your main Kardashian-Jenner allegiance leans more Khlo than Kylie. Up to you—you’re the boss.

A hooded hot pink coat paired with matching corduroy pants? Yes, please! You’ll look chic and be totally prepared for October's brisk forecasts in this winter escape look. A pair of chunky black boots make for a great contrast with all that pink.

You know Miami brunch-bound Barbie is going to serve allll the vibrant color sand tropical vibes. Accessorize this off-the-shoulder floral statement top and feather-trimmed electric pink mini skirt (I mean, it’s hot in the 305) with a bubbly-textured box clutch. Maybe a mimosa, too.

Come on, Barbie! Let’s go party. You’ve got the perfect look to ring in 2023 with this sequined, shimmery one-shoulder number. There’s also a two-piece body-con minidress set in the same mesmerizing iridescent material, if that's more your speed. Top the look off with purple metallic, rhinestone studded heels, a color block convertible clutch, and celebrate all the way into the new year. Oh, and now you have the most epic outfit for watching the ball drop sorted months in advance, nbd. (You're welcome.)
