It’s hard to believe that summer is about to draw to a close (~tears~), but we’re about to usher in a new season of cooler temperatures, shorter days and of course, Halloween festivities — even before October officially hits. You still have a couple of months to plan and purchase this year’s get-up, but if you’re looking to get ahead of your shopping so you don’t end up costume-less at the last minute before a big costume party, socially distanced outdoor pumpkin festival, or a low-key night in spoiling trick-or-treaters, we’ve rounded up a few of the best Halloween costumes on Amazon that are totally well-suited for 2021, contain everything you need for a fuss-free holiday, and won’t put a massive dent on your wallet.

Whether you’re looking to re-create the look of your favorite movie or T.V. show character from this year’s new releases (hello, Gossip Girl), or are looking for a retro throwback look to rock (you can never go wrong with the classics), we’ve got you covered with some impressive pop-culture-inspired Halloween looks available for under mostly $50 that you won’t see everyone else wearing on Instagram before your big night out to celebrate spooky szn.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
