If you haven’t watched Squid game on Netflix again, what are you waiting for? The South Korean dystopian drama is currently number one on Netflix and it has become an instant favorite among the Highsnobiety team (many of us watched the show in under 48 hours). While the show itself is worthy of a frenzy, what really got us talking was the clothes.
The Squid game The uniform is a retro-inspired teal blue tracksuit paired with white sneakers (which look eerily like white Vans). Obviously, the Squid game The tracksuit is going to be the biggest Halloween costume this year – and here we are.
Netflix recently dropped a line of Squid game merch, which in our opinion totally missed the mark. But if you don’t want to buy your Halloween costume from random retailers (uhoodie.com? inswear.com?), We have what you need. Below we have selected the best Squid game-Inspired outfits you’ll wear for much longer than October 31st.

For those of you unfamiliar with South Korean survival drama, the plot centers on a handful of people who are heavily in debt due to gambling, fraud, etc., and who are invited to participate in a game where the jackpot is in cash. And we’re talking a lot of money – around $ 40 million. Once in the game, all 456 players quickly realize that this is not just an ordinary game – it is based on surviving children’s games such as ‘red light, green light’ and shooting. the rope.
In contrast with the different scenographies of the show such as the pastel-colored stairs, the configuration of the game “red light, green light”, as well as the red suits worn by the staff, the Squid gamThe uniforms are really perfect – and we have to thank director Hwang Dong-hyuk for that. The director also revealed that most of the sets are actually built in real life, without CGIs, which makes it even more impressive.
Numerous actors in the series have also caught the attention. Specifically, Ho Yeon Jung, who is a famous model (who just signed a big campaign with Louis Vuitton) and appeared on Korea’s next top model. She made her acting debut in Squid game as one of the main players. Other names include Kim Joo-ryoung, Gong Yoo, and Lee Jung-jae.
The show was hugely successful, reaching No. 1 on Netflix, with conversations surrounding a potential sequel underway. In the meantime, we’re looking for some teal tracksuits and white Vans – both for everyday wear, as well as a really good Halloween costume. It seems we weren’t the only ones thinking this, seeing as research for Vans Slip-On sneakers has increased by 7,800% after the show’s release. Shop our current favorites above.
