Halloween 2021: The best costumes in pop culture: Bernie and Bridgerton
It’s October, which means Halloween is just around the corner.
After an unusual (and less festive) Halloween last year due to the pandemic, this year’s holiday season looks more promising – thanks to vaccines.
So if you’re planning on getting dressed but still looking for inspiration on what to wear, we’ve rounded up some of the best pop culture costume ideas for this year.
From TV shows and movie-inspired looks to meme-worthy celebrity moments and more, there’s something on the list for everyone to enjoy if you’re planning on celebrating the spooky season this month – this.
Who could forget Senator Bernie Sanders’ inaugural look? The senator’s mask, puffer jacket, and – most importantly – mittens combo become one of the biggest memes of the January nomination. Recreating this look is simple, as it only takes the aforementioned parts. What’s trickier is practicing the perfect pouting pose to get the right shot from your copy.
Put on your gloves and blouses! Lady Whistledown predicts a costume inspired by “Bridgerton”. Whether you dress as a sultry Simon in a suit or a dreamy Daphne in a dress, your stylish outfit is sure to impress. You might even catch the eye of a royal suitor!
Kim K’s Met Gala Look
Dust off your old black Morphsuit (or order a new one), because that’s exactly what you need to recreate Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala look. While the “Keeping Up” star ensemble was signed by Balenciaga, we think an all-black Morphsuit with a black scarf draped behind you will be a great recreation of that dark style.
Instead of a black Morphsuit, don a black jumpsuit and a red wig and you are ready to be Scarlett Johansson in “Black Widow”. Also, be sure to match your costume with its ferocity level.
Pull on a white shirt, pink sweater, and glasses to transform yourself into the royal interview look of Oprah, a March televised moment that sent shockwaves and dropped bombs. Premium? Have your friends play Harry and Meghan and you will have a covered group costume!
Interested in a retro look? How about dressing up as an “Avengers” couple Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) as they are immersed in their 1950s black and white world in “WandaVision”. Perfect for a couple (or bestie) costume or choose a character for a solo look!
If a real couple is more your style, you and your partner can dress like the renewed lovebirds Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Either their PDA moment on the red carpet (just requires a suit and white dress) or the post that made them official on Instagram (which can be recreated with a bikini for JLo and a blue shirt for Ben).

A purple feather boa and a checked blazer. Need we say more? Combine these two items to recreate the look of Harry Styles’ 2021 Grammy Awards.
Relive your favorite moments from this year’s Olympic Games by dressing up as your favorite athlete like Suni Lee or Simone Biles. A leotard and a medal around the neck are sufficient. Throw warm-up gear on top to avoid getting too cold!
Olivia Rodrigo’s favorite candy? “Sour.” Well, maybe not, but her album cover look is another great costume idea that mostly requires a bunch of stickers on your face. You can always keep your “driver’s license” for an additional accessory.
If dressing like a villain is more your style, try Emma Stone’s Cruella from the 2021 live-action remake. A black and white wig is the most important piece in recreating this iconic character.
