Halloween got you stumped? When it doubt: denim.

We’ve got you covered with three denim-inspired Halloween costume ideas.


Denim inspo no. 1: Mom jeans

Popularized by the classic SNL sketch, the mom jean is an easy, yet party-pleasing, last-minute costume idea. Start with high-rise jeans (preferably a light wash) and accessorize liberally with wardrobe staples like white sneakers, turtlenecks or polo shirts (a mock turtleneck really does the job), headbands, and a simple watch or charm bracelet. A PTA badge or bake sale volunteer button really take this outfit across the finish line.

(And seriously, watch the SNL sketch. We die. Every. Time.)

Get the look: Try the Rocket High Rise Skinny in Dusted or the 501 CT in Daylight Falls


Denim inspo no. 2: Spring break

Airbrushed tees are having a moment—so let that retro spring break fashion shine. Pair over-the-top neon with a pair of denim cutoffs for a spring-break-ready look. Bonus points for party beads.

Get the look: Try Hudson’s Tori Selvage Slouch Short or follow our DIY denim cutoffs tutorial to make your own


Denim inspo no. 3: L’artiste

Craving a look that’s at once mysterious, artistic, and Parisian? If you answered Oui to all three, l’artiste is just for you! Slap some paint on a palette—and an old pair of jeans, accessorize with classic Parisian stripes and a high bun and Voila! L’artise c’est magnifique.

Get the look: Add paint splatter to a pair of thrift store jeans (which can double as a therapy session and/or workout) … or just try these Blank NYC skinnies in Reef Blower.



Happy Halloween, ladies. Stay safe, and have fun!
