Barbie has been with us since the dawn of time (or it feels that way, at least). After 64 years, Barbara Millicent Roberts (if we're calling her by her Christian, 'you're in trouble' name) has certainly been a loyal friend to many across the world. So, it's no surprise that people are RUNNING to grab all the Barbie Halloween outfits, with the spooky season coming up shortly.

And, even better, TikTok fans have found a REPLICA of many Barbie Halloween outfits and they're available straight off of PrettyLittleThing for as low as a mere £22. Bargain. It's never been easier to DIY a Barbie Halloween costume for a tempting price.

From the Barbie Cowgirl costume to the Barbie Rollerskating costume, you can get your Barbiecore fix this Halloween and feel just as hawt as Margot Robbie. Thanks, TikTok. Barbie and Ken Halloween costumes, incoming.

I don't need to ask whether you've seen the Barbie film. Because of course, you have. What a stupid question. Apologies. If you're here, that can only mean one thing. You're after the best Barbie outfits. We, here at heat, were kind Kenough to find the most iconic looks, just for you. Perfect for dressing up for Halloween, but cute enough to wear all year round.

The Barbie film, released in July 2023, was incredible. Perhaps not at the level of perfection as say, the classic Barbie princess movies (Barbie: Mermaidia anyone?) but it will suffice. Greta Gerwig, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, amongst the many other incredible performers, have created a film which will go down in cinematic history. Sublime!

So, ready to get your Barbie Halloween outfit ready? Here are the TikTok-viral PrettyLittleThing Halloween Barbie outfits as well as how to create your own Barbie costume with the dupes below.

What is Barbiecore?

Although Millenials and Gen Z have disagreements (aka Gen Z roasting Millennials for using words like "doggo" and jokes about coffee), we can all agree on one thing: growing up with a Barbie doll was one of the best things about our childhoods. Dressing her up in all different clothes and those surprise visits to Toys R Us where you'd run down the Barbie aisle with glee. What a time to be alive.

It's no surprise, then, that the Barbiecore trend has taken over the fashion world. But what is Barbiecore?

Pink pink... and more pink. Barbiecore has changed definitions over the years, but one thing stays the same - pink. Barbie's fashion aesthetic started off broader in the '60s and '70s eras, simply copying the styles of the time. Whatever appeared in the coolest fashion magazines, Barbie would soon be wearing it. Plus, a fun fact: Barbie started off as a redhead.

By the '90s and early noughties, Barbie had developed an aesthetic of her own, henceforth called Barbiecore. Inspired by LA Valley girls, with hints of Y2K (because everything has to have Y2K flavourings these days), Barbiecore included layers of pale pink, denim jackets and lip gloss. That typical girl-next-door vibe.

Nowadays, Barbiecore is more of a sexy, editorial look. Plastic, skin-tight latex clothing and bright hot pink. Of course, the girl-next-door vibes still stand, but the aesthetic developed to include more high-fashion clothing. For example, Zendaya rocked this Barbie pink suit during this year's Paris Fashion Week and looked stunning.
