Britney Spears Costume Ideas: 6 Iconic Looks to Recreate for Halloween


Forget dressing up as a ghost or vampire this Halloween. This year’s holiday is the perfect time to pay homage to the princess of pop, Miss Britney Jean Spears. It’s safe to say we’ve all been rooting for the singer these past few months, and what better way to celebrate her freedom than by paying homage to the many iconic outfits she’s worn throughout her impressive career? Fear not if you’re short on costume inspiration—because America’s sweetheart has a number of iconic ensembles that will leave you saying, “Gimme More!”

Whether in her music videos (a “Toxic”-style flight attendant look, anyone?), on stage (you could recreate that “Slave” snake performance look), or on the red carpet (a denim dress rings a bell), the singer has been serving looks for two decades strong. Feeling inspired by her thrilling fashion journey, I decided that I will be dressing up like Spears this Halloween. As a lifelong fan, I know I have to do the star’s signature, Y2K-style look justice—so I dove into the photo archives for some ideas. And in the process, I found that there are many memorable Spears fits to choose from. So, won’t you join me?

From a red, “Oops”-inspired latex suit to the “Baby One More Time” school girl outfit, read on below for some of the best Britney-themed Halloween costumes to consider trying on this year. You’ll be the fiercest pop star in the room. Given the plethora of options, I have started encouraging my friends to come dressed as Spears for my Halloween party this year. The only rule is that there shall be no mean-spirited or 2007-era costumes allowed. In this house, we stan Spears only! As for which Britney look I’m recreating? That’s a secret until Halloween. Duh!

Below, 6 Britney-themed Halloween costumes to try.
