Country Music Inspired Halloween Costume Ideas (With Budget-Friendly Shopping Links!)

Buckle up, y'all, it's the spookiest (and our favorite) time of the year. Many look forward to the annual multi-step process of planning out a Halloween costume, hoping to stand out amongst a sea of bats, witches, Harley Quinns, and Marvel characters. If you love country music (which of course you do), and you're looking for some inspiration for your 2022 costume, we got your back! Here's some ideas inspired by country music's biggest stars.

1. Kelsea Ballerini

We're loving the aesthetic and outfits from her SUBJECT TO CHANGE era. Especially on tour, this queen has been serving look after look. This is an easy, cute, and relatively inexpensive one to copy for Halloween!

What you'll need:

  • The iconic shirt from Kelsea's official website (cut it into a crop top to get her look)

  • A light wash embellished jean jacket

  • Light wash embellished bootcut jeans

2. Taylor Swift

This country icon turned global superstar has inspired countless Halloween costumes for more than a decade. The numerous eras of her music career offer something for everybody, both when it comes to the tunes and the fashion. Some of our favorites include the classic country Taylor outfits. Here's some reasonably priced pieces that will perfectly recreate the look!

What you'll need:

Last but not least, no Taylor costume is complete without a cat. We highly caution against taking your living pet cat to the club, but we've found some Beanie Boo lookalikes for Meredith and Olivia, as well as Benjamin Button.

3. Lainey Wilson

One of the biggest rising stars in country music has blessed us with several easy-to-replicate looks, all featuring her signature bell bottoms. Perhaps our favorite is from her ACM Honors performance; we've taken notes from this outfit for both everyday and Halloween style inspiration.

What you'll need:

4. Kacey Musgraves

Musgraves is a queen, trailblazer, and legend all in one. It's "more than just a little justified" to obsess over her newest record, star crossed, as well as literally her entire discography. Last but not least, her wardrobe and makeup looks have become a staple of pop culture. Our favorite fashion moment of hers is probably Space Cowboy - it really doesn't get any more iconic than this.

What you'll need:

5. Dolly Parton

Parton's most famous looks and hairstyle have long served as Halloween costume inspiration. A titan of country music, everyone knows and loves this queen. The only thing we'd caution you against with this one - it's very likely that you won't be the only one sporting this costume at the party.

What you'll need:

Fortunately, with the help of the brand new "Doggy Parton" pet line, your pets can join you on this one! But with that said, please make sure you're keeping their safety a priority if you decide to bring them along.

Of course, the possibilities are endless in this department - but we hope that this list helped at least some creative juices start flowing. All Country News wishes y'all a safe and happy spooky season!
