HALLOWEEN STYLE INSPO: EASY, LOW-KEY COSTUMES

Now that it’s October, it’s officially time to start figuring out your Halloween plans… What parties to hit up, where to find the best spooky treats, and whether or not to finally commit to that inflatable T-Rex suit.

Or maybe you’re just looking for a comfortable, low-key costume you can put together with stuff already in your closet. Something fun and festive you can wear to work or class or wherever you’ll be before meeting up with friends.

That’s the vibe we’re going for this year, so we asked the AE team to come up with some easy, creative costumes for you to recreate or to inspire your unique Halloween look. Boo yah!

 

Look 1: Happy Hippie

Candice – Associate Web Designer

Any costume that incorporates your favorite jeans is an automatic winner. Those flares you’ve been loving were made with flower child vibes in mind, so you’ll need only a few more pieces to finish this look. Layer on a couple of your flowiest tops (the more prints, the better!), slip on some Birks, and you’ll be feelin’ groovy.

 

Look 2: Hip Lumberjack

Isaiah – Inbound Operations Analyst

Not all superheroes wear capes, and not all lumberjacks wear plaid. Layered with a hoodie, your favorite solid flannel fits perfectly with that whole rugged and rustic vibe. A pair of suspenders, whatever jeans you’re already wearing (are you noticing a trend here?), plus some work boots, and you’ve got yourself a costume!

 

Look 3: Modern Angel

Chloe – Brand Coordinator

Keep your look light and pretty with a tonal take on the Halloween theme. You can DIY your own halo, but all you REALLY need is a fluttery white top, your go-to sneakers, and that bleached-out pair of high-waisted jeggings you lived in all summer. As if you needed an excuse to wear white jeans after Labor Day, lol.

 

Look 4: Dapper Penguin

Sam – Brand Coordinator

Play it cool with a fresh take on everyone’s favorite flightless bird. Skip the tux in favor of dark jeans with a white shirt and black vest combo. Dress it up with a bow tie and gloves, and go for a chill, dramatic effect with just a touch of face paint. It IS Halloween, after all.

 

Look 5: Classic Cowgirl

Olivia – Email Coordinator

Jeans, plaid shirt, denim jacket, and some boots or booties! Chances are, you have all or most of these things in your closet already. The hat may complete the look, but the way you style everything else is what makes this classic costume fresh and unique to you.

 

Look 6: Neutral Bear

Shane – Associate Brand Manager

Sure, you could just do the face paint and bear ears with any old outfit, but leaning into the theme with a head-to-toe tonal look really takes things up a notch. Layer on whatever neutrals you feel best in and throw on a fun accessory to set everything off.
