Halloween is fast approaching (I know, summer feels like it was only last week) and we are very excited.

The yearly head-scratching for an original costume idea that will impress is in full flow, and for those who don't want to wade through bundles of cheap tat at the local fancy dress shop, we have a few options that are a bit more low-key.

While dressing up is one of fashion's greatest pleasures, the climate crisis is such that buying a one-time costume and being left with a pile of cheap polyester you'll never wear again is not really an option anymore — and it will only double your post-party anxiety. Instead, we would recommend looking for pieces either in your wardrobe already, or ones that will seamlessly go from your costume to your daily rotation.

Below, we've put together some easy costumes using everyday clothing, from Nick Kyrios paying no regard to tennis dress conventions to Ken and Barbie — and everything in-between. Check them out below.

Adam Sandler

The things we do to nail a costume often mean having to wear uncomfortable and heavy props, but that isn't the case when you dress up as everyone's favorite unsuspecting fashion icon. The trick with dressing up as Adam Sandler is that the bigger the shorts, the better.

Vecna (001)

Bad news for fans of Stranger Things, there's only going to be one more season of the show — which means it's time to get your Stranger Things-themed costumes nailed now before it is over. While there's been a lot of hype around Eddie's style over the past year, we're opting to go as the Vecna who is (spoiler alert!) the biggest villain to come from Season 4.

Nick Kyrgios

The stuffy world of tennis might not have appreciated Kyrgios' red Jordans, but we certainly did. You can go straight from the party to the tennis court without needing to get changed with this look.

Fez

Not only has Fez become one of our favorite Euphoria characters, but he is also one of the best dressed. For this one, it's just a matter of throwing on a baggy polo shirt, equally baggy jeans, and getting a buzzcut — simple, right?

Squid Game

Squid Game was one of the biggest costumes last year, and we're expecting this year to be no different. Everyone will know immediately what you're dressed up as (no awkward explanations here) and it's one of the rare costumes that actually works better when more than one person wears it. Below, we have options for a player and the captain. Whichever you choose, just please don't make a sexy version of it.

Goodfellas

Henry Hill, played by the late Ray Liotta, is the G.O.A.T. when it comes to styling knit shirts (and organized crime). Once Halloween is over, throw one of these shirts on with some formal trousers and it's a costume that can easily transform into a dinner date outfit.

The Barbie Movie

Although we will have to wait till next year before it releases, some photos that were taken on-set for the new Barbie movie give us a pretty clear idea of the pink-centric wardrobe that will be used. The best thing about this one is that you have the option of pairing up with someone to become Ken and Barbie.
