The whole business of organising your Halloween costume can be a hassle, especially if you’re the kind of person who hates shopping or crafting, or you’re generally not a fan of All Hallow’s Eve. Therefore, Halloween costumes with jeans are the perfect solution for Halloween costume haters or folks who put comfort over style every day of the week.
Every year it’s likely the same story when it comes to your Halloween costume – you find an amazing DIY costume and set about making it only to find you really suck at crafts, then you locate a cool costume online that’s a little pricey, but at least it means you don’t need to do any DIY. After this, one of three things occurs: It arrives in time but it’s way too short/tight/big/uncomfortable and nothing like the picture, it arrives on the day and you don’t have time to try it on, or it doesn’t arrive in time and you have to buy another costume from the mall. This means you are potentially trapped in a costume that makes you feel super uncomfortable all night or you’re stuck with a costume that wasn’t your first choice.
So in order to take matters into your own hands, wear a Halloween costume that encompasses your favorite pair of jeans, so no matter what happens, you know you’ll feel comfortable and confident all night long.
1. A Pink Lady
Channelling the Pink Ladies for Halloween is a great way to show your love of this iconic movie while also wearing a cool, retro costume. The main component of a Pink Lady ensemble is of course, the pink jacket. So if you want to be comfortable and don't fancy wearing a restrictive, black, pencil skirt like Rizzo all evening, opt for some high-waisted jeans and turn them up at the ankles for a vintage vibe.
2. Your Favorite Super Mario Brother
Pick either Luigi or Mario and follow this simple tutorial to achieve a super simple Halloween costume. If you're not a fan of denim shorts, wear jeans instead — a blue, high-waisted pair would be the most authentic choice.
3. Wednesday Addams
Gals who hate wearing dresses can put a contemporary spin on the classic Wednesday Addams look and wear some gothic, black jeans instead of a black dress. Make sure to pair your jeans with pigtails and a black top with a large white collar, so that it's obvious what look you're going for.
4. A Werewolf
A she-wolf costume is all about the hair and makeup, so you can basically wear whatever you like on your bod! If you want to look like you're in the midst of "turning" underneath the full moon, rock some ripped jeans and slash up a tee to create a realistic wolfy ensemble.
5. A Vampire
Choose any of your favorite vamps from popular culture, such as Twilight or The Vampire Diaries. If you want to go for a more glamorous feel, channel Pam from True Blood for some truly vampy vibes; all you'll need is some fake blood, some fangs, a pair of killer heels, and a corset top to wear with your jeans.
6. Rosie The Riveter
Add a scarlet pout, a denim shirt, and a red bandana to your jeans and you've got an insanely easy Rosie the Riveter outfit.
7. Where's Waldo
Anyone can become Waldo of the Where's Waldo books with just a red and white stripy top, jeans, a bobble hat, and a pair of glasses. This is an awesome last minute costume option.
8. A '70s Hippie
Pop on some 1970s inspired flares and the most garish, flower power print top you can find and you'll already be well on the way to a hippie Halloween costume. Finish off your look with a casual headband and some sunnies and your look will be complete.
9. A Scarecrow
A scarecrow smile, a straw hat, and a plaid top are all the accessories you'll need to transform yourself into a scarecrow this Halloween! Bonus points if you manage to get your mitts on some straw to stuff down your shirt. Take a peek at the above creepy scarecrow makeup tutorial that'll make the perfect accessory to your simple costume.
10. A Zombie Survivor
Aside from the classic cat costume, dressing as a zombie survivor for Halloween is one of the easiest costumes ever. Just dress how you normally would — preferably in clothes you don't mind getting messy with fake blood and makeup — and follow a tutorial on how to create realistic zombie survivor threads. Becoming a zombie survivor is even easier than dressing as an actual zombie for Halloween, as you don't need to wear a ton of makeup or walk around like a mindless corpse all night.
11. Ash Ketchum
Be on top of your pop culture game by paying homage to one of the most popular games of the year, Pokémon GO. Dress as Ash (or a female version, Ashley) and attend a Halloween themed Pokémon GO meetup if you're lucky enough to have one in your area. If there's not one happening where you live, host one instead — tell members to dress as their favorite Pokémon and look out for Ash Ketchum on the night.
Costumes with jeans make it possible to look rad and feel comfy, so you can have more fun stuffing your face with witches' fingers and skeleton cupcakes! Because Halloween is all about the treats, right?
