If you’re not too fussed about Halloween and had no plans but have since been invited to a party and you have nothing to wear, don’t worry, outfits can be made from items in your wardrobe already. Some of you might have been much too busy with work or life’s challenges and didn’t have time to go out and buy one either, so we have you covered! Here are 10 different costume ideas that you can achieve using the denim and other garments from your wardrobe. Some of them are easy, only needing a shirt, jeans and boots while others require a little more bold denim options that I know a lot of us denim addicts already own. Happy Halloween!
It’s that time of year again when it’s almost Halloween! Here at DenimBlog, we love creating denim inspired outfits to really spruce up the costume front and keep it themed. We have of course put together a look each, so there’s three in total, so you can be denim costume ready for the weekend! Happy Halloween everyone!
I wanted to have some fun and my first thought was to choose the Mad Hatter. The way he mixes prints has always been intriguing and being that it is Halloween, it is a day to get away with it. I started the look off with the red plaid R13 harem pants. They have an exaggerated and cropped fit that just works with the quirk that he gives off. Now for the mixing, I went for a tweed vest by Lardini, a scarf by Haider Ackermann scarf and socks by Paul Smith to bring in the ‘mad’ aspect. Though some that is all about exaggeration, the Mad Hatter does incorporate some clean classic pieces. For those pieces, I chose a clean white shirt by Versus and a pair of Uri Minkoff shoes. Then to finish it all off, his signature hat. How many of you are looking forward for Halloween?
I wanted to do something traditional and known for denim for my Halloween costume as I usually do something related to the superhero theme. I chose to go down a Western route and do a cowgirl inspired look and I love it! I chose these One Teaspoon shorts as the base as I know we all love to look a little bit sexy on Halloween and then I paired them with a red plaid shirt from Topshop, which you might want to tie up at the front. I of course paired this look with some classic Cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, as well as a Western belt to really keep the theme going. To make it a little more modern and feminine, I finally chose these aviator sunglasses and a red lipstick for a bold statement. How many of you are going as a cowgirl this year?
Overalls are everywhere this season and so are Minions! I figured combining the two would be the perfect Halloween costume. This costume is a really fun and playful look and can easily be created with things already in your closet. First, I chose these 7 For All Mankind overalls, and then this signature bright yellow tee shirt. I added some black lace up boots and gloves, and finally clear rimmed glasses to look similar to the goggles.
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to do an outfit that was toned down and quite gender-less in a way. I chose the Ksubi Spray On Skinny Jeans in Carbon Black as my base as I think the washed grey skinny with distressing is really easy going. I added colour with this Philosophy Wool Pullover and then contrasted it more with this Loeffler Randall Blue Bag. I thought some Loeffler Randall Silver Shoes would really brighten things up too, but as they are flat and brogue like, they work well for daytime wear. I finally finished it off with a pair of the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer and then a Ted Baker Ring. I definitely love this look and it’s something I would wear myself!
AMO is still a relatively new brand with styles that have very intriguing vintage inspired detailing like their Twisted Seam Skinny in True Blue. There is a ’70s attitude to the style that I find fun and fresh for a pair of cropped skinny jeans which is why I chose them to do a look with this week.
When it came to the styling, I wanted to go for a slight western edge in the vein of a California girl. I started off by choosing a vintage inspired t shirt by Madewell. Then to bring in the western, I went with a fringed jacket by Saint Laurent and belt by B-Low The Belt. But to help keep it modern and because I just love jeans of this crop with ankle boots, I chose a studded pair by Anine Bing. There is still a western thing going with the details, but there is also a sense of modernity with the cut. How would you style these jeans?
