I don't think I'm alone in my appreciation for easy outfit ideas, and Halloween costumes are no exception. Whether you're in need of a last-minute costume or you're simply low-maintenance when it comes to planning for the celebration, there is one effortless piece that will definitely come in handy: a pair of overalls. Whether in denim or linen, full-length or shorts versions, dungarees make getting ready a cinch no matter the day.  For Halloween, in particular, the costume possibilities that incorporate overalls are endless and take little to no effort to pull off.

With overalls, you can always go for more recognizable, basic costumes like a farmer or scarecrow. But if you're looking for something more stylish with a nod to pop culture, I have just the inspiration. Think throwbacks to the Olsen twins movie days, Demi Moore's iconic scene from Ghost, Meryl Streep's iconic character in Mamma Mia, and more. Keep scrolling to check out seven great no-fuss Halloween costume ideas with overalls. The best part is that most of these pieces can be seamlessly added to your wardrobe long after the Halloween parties are over.
