Simple & Easy Halloween Costume Ideas That Require Minimal Effort For Maximum Fun

Halloween costumes are simply a tradition for Halloween. (And candy. Don't forget the candy.)

OK, maybe you're more interested in the candy than the costumes, or maybe you just don't have the time, energy or money to get all dressed up or come up with yet another creative Halloween costume.

Or maybe your friends want to go all out, and you're just simply not feeling it this year.

Of course, combine all that with a severe case of fear of missing out and you're going to have to break down and get yourself a costume (or just experience the night's fun antics via Snapchat and Instagram. The thought of that is scarier than any haunted house!).

Whatever the case, sometimes we just have to suck it up and throw a bone to the tough customs of popular holidays just to keep up with the crowd.

Still, that doesn't mean you need to go all out. Here are a few easy Halloween costume ideas to make you fit in with the rest without costing you any extra time and energy.

1. A Kardashian​​


All you have to do is put on a rocking, stylish outfit, style your hair in anything from a ponytail to a stylish wave. It gives you a chance to practice or brush up on your contouring skills too!

2. A Kardashian (before blending)


You can just skip the blending step because who wants to put in that much more effort? You can just say you're a Kardashian before blending. Now that's a show stopper.

3. Army pants and flip-flops


Throw on some army pants and flip flops, and if you want to make the reference even more obvious, you can cut two holes into the chest of a tank-top to show off your bra.

If any uncultured swine asks you what you're supposed to be, muster up your best Mean Girls voice and say: "I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip-flops, so I bought army pants and flip-flops."

If they still don't get it, well, they're a lost cause.

If you haven't already seen this sketch, then you should.

Just look her up on YouTube and enjoy her resumé of sassy one-liners.

5. 90's baby


There's no decade quite like the '90s. Make a fashion statement by putting together pieces in an ode to the era.

6. Broke College Student


Throw on a top bun (or whatever easy hairstyle you choose), sweats, a loose top and a bag of Top Ramen, and not only do you have a comfortable outfit to walk around in, but also a snack in case there's no decent food around.

7. Yourself... two years ago

This is for anyone that has a few articles of clothing lying around that they either haven't worn in years, never really wore at all, or simply can't let go of.

Show that old piece of clothing (or pieces of clothing) some love by wearing them on Halloween as a nod to your former self.

Maybe it's cringe-worthy, or maybe it's just loaded with nostalgia, either way, there's got to be a reason you're hanging onto these clothes, right?

If not, maybe this will be a good reminder for you to donate some of the stuff crowding your closet.
