These Barbie and Ken fashion ideas are easy to recreate using items you probably already have in your closet. There’s no need to buy a completely new outfit when you can have fun searching your closet for the items needed to create a Barbie-themed Halloween costume that’s uniquely yours!
1959 Black and White Striped Barbie Model Costume
First off, this vintage Barbie costume has to be the easiest to recreate. Any black and white striped swimsuit will work. You can even wear a polka dot one if you have one! Grab a pair of high heels, your favorite pair of earrings, some sunglasses, and your Halloween costume is complete!

Toy Story Barbie and Ken costume
For Barbie, instead of dancing clothes, get her favorite pair of shorts or leggings. A sporty top can be paired with a hot pink hair band. Tie a jacket around your waist and you can’t forget the 80s leg warmers! It’s very easy to create a Ken costume. Any blue animal print button-down can be worn with blue shorts and loafers or tennis shoes to match.

Gorgeous blue Barbie outfit
This Barbie is so adorable! Unlike most Barbie outfits, this one contains almost no pink. So it’s perfect if you want a more toned-down option for your Barbie Halloween costume. If you don’t have blue overalls, wear light or medium-colored jeans with a striped blouse and a beanie. Get a blonde wig and color a few pieces blue/silver to tie this outfit together.
