Popular culture has always played an important role in what's trending in our everyday lives — including Halloween costumes. From trending movies and TV shows to musicians and Hollywood starlets, this year's most popular costumes have taken plenty of inspiration from the buzziest events of the year.

The top Netflix show "Squid Game" was recently named the top-trending Halloween costume by Google, so expect to see plenty of red jumpsuits popping up everywhere this spooky season. Red carpet events like the Met Gala gave us some serious looks - including Kim K's iconic black bodysuit.

Ahead, take a look at some of the most iconic pop culture influences this year that will inspire your Halloween look.
