This Halloween you too can resemble the unemployed Instagram influencer of your dreams, with Urban Outfitters selling the ultimate 'Influencer Halloween Costume Set'.

For NZ$89 ($US59), the American shopping site has teamed a pair of dark grey leggings and a pale grey sports bra.

You could actually buy real leggings and a mildly supportive sports bra from Cotton On Body for that - but I digress.

According to the site, the Influencer costume will help the wearer "channel Instagram style in this low key costume set worthy of a superstar influencer" featuring a "minimalist sporty-chic sports bra and leggings in muted tonal hues" for a look that's "so now".

The outfit does not include the hat, sunglasses, blonde wig or sneakers the model is wearing - you have to purchase those separately to get the authentic look. 

The outfit bears a striking resemblance to the Yeezy Season 6 release from January  but probably a touch cheaper.

The internet has, as expected, gone into overdrive in response to the costume - some finding it hilarious, others failing to see the humour.

"Just poking my head into the hell mouth to drop some actually funny content in your feed," wrote Devon Maloney.

"Holy fk I thought this was a joke,"tweeted DJ Dani Deahl.

As of Monday, it had a four star review on the website.

One five-star review reads: "Influencers are the dumbest things I've ever seen. Get a real job."

"This is hilarious. A little pricey, but so funny," another five-star one reads.

If you're looking for a more budget-friendly Halloween costume this year, you could also just raid your closet for some gym clothes, instead.
