90s pop culture halloween costumes.

Maybe it's the nostalgia talking here, but the 90's were truly a unique set of years that churned out countless iconic pop culture moments! If you're looking for a Halloween costume that is the perfect blast from the past, or you just want to have a unique yet recognizable outfit, I've put together the cutest 90's pop culture Halloween outfits for every cool-girl! Plus, they're all from Amazon!

This post is all about 90s pop culture halloween costumes.

1. Carrie Bradshaw & Friends from SATC

Although SATC has always been super popular, I have never seen anyone attempt a really good SATC costume! If you have a friend group, everyone can pick a character, but if you're flying solo you of course have to show up as Carrie Bradshaw!

4. Kathleen Kelly from You've Got Mail

You've Got Mail is an underrated Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan 90's movie set in NYC with a golden retriever, Fall leaves, and the beginnings of online romance. I need to see a couple with a golden retriever dress up as Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox.

6. Meryl Burbank from The Truman Show

This trippy movie is about a show that is produced and aired about Truman's life, but he doesn't know it. Meryl is Truman's "wife" and she frequently presents sponsored products to Truman under the guise of bringing them home from the store, but Truman starts to realize her behavior is strange.

7. Kat Stratford from 10 Things I Hate About You

I have yet to find a person that dislikes this movie. Kat is a cynical teenager who ends up falling for a young Heath Ledger. Her prom outfit is probably the easiest to duplicate, but you could also recreate one of her signature tomboy-esque outfits. Another fun scene to use is the paintball scene if you are in need of a couple's costume!

12. Kathryn Merteuil from Cruel Intentions

Okay this is the HOTTEST costume ever and I have never seen anyone do it. Kathryn's look is very old-money gothic and she's an iconic femme fatale character. If that's your vibe, you need to do this costume!

13. Chessy from The Parent Trap

In my previous post here, I put together the iconic Meredith Blake hiking outfit from Amazon. Today, I decided to give the spotlight to an extremely underrated yet highly influential character, Chessy. She is the 90's California vineyard comfort aesthetic. If you want an excuse to see what your boyfriend would look like as a butler, have him dress up as Chessy's love interest Martin.

17. Corey Mason from Empire Records

Liv Tyler was stunning in Empire Records as Corey Mason. It's so funny to see all the 90's style that has so clearly influenced today's clothing. She gives me Olivia Rodrigo vibes.

18. Abigail Williams from The Crucible

Another Winona classic, Abigail Williams is starting rumors that there are women in the town practicing witchcraft even though she started dabbling in it to begin with, sparking the Salem Witch Trials. If you've been a witch in the past and you want another creepy costume, try this one!

19. Estella from Great Expectations

The 90's adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations modernizes the tale and stars Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow in all her 90's starlet glory. Plus, it's set in 90's New York! One of my favorite outfits is Gwyneth's all-green matching slinky set in Central Park.

20. Vanessa Kensington from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

The most common costume from this movie is the femme bot costume, you know the all-pink lingerie outfit with the big hair and the feathers? An extremely underrated costume in my opinion is Vanessa Kensington's silver spy outfit!

Silver Set

Silver Gogo Boots

21. Helen Sharp from Death Becomes Her

Death Becomes Her is a perfect, campy, and underrated Halloween movie. It stars Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn as two women who discover the consequences of eternal "youth". The costume design in this would be totally fun to recreate for a costume, especially if you wanted to go with your best girlfriend!
