7 Last-Minute Costumes You Can Make With a Pair of Overalls

We all love the convenience of a one-and-done outfit. Yes, we're talking about overalls—especially when we're in a serious crunch for time in the mornings. They're versatile, easy to wear, and don't require much addition styling. What's not to love? And today we're giving you yet another reason to keep those denim dungarees in your closet: They come in handy when you need a last-minute Halloween costume.

What are some classic, fashion-forward getups you can piece together with overalls, you ask? Easy. The retro denim trend was an iconic staple in the wardrobes of some of our favorite '90s movie and television characters—we're talking Tai Frasier from Clueless and Michelle Tanner on Full House. All you need are some dungarees and a few additional pieces—like a bow hair clip for Michelle and Dr. Martens for Tai—and you're set.

Of course, there are plenty of other costumes you can make with the denim staple, from a cowgirl (a huge trend for fall) to a scarecrow to a minion. Whatever you choose to dress up as, a pair of overalls will save you so much time and stress on October 31. Ready to see more easy, last-minute costumes that revolve around denim dungarees?
