I have always loved Halloween. Getting dressed up - silly, fancy or otherwise - is kind of one of my favorite things in life, and over time I've learned to get pretty creative. I'm not into store-bought Halloween costumes, although some are pretty cool. I much prefer to work with things I already have in my closet, and if I am going to buy something, they need to be pieces I can integrate into my existing wardrobe. Not gonna lie … sometimes I've even used a Halloween costume as an excuse to splurge on a particular item I've been crushing on (i.e. the olive green jumpsuit you'll find in the slideshow!). I came up with a list of 7 super-simple Halloween costumes that you can wear again … or that in many cases might already be living in your closet!
