It’s one solid basic that can be used to dress up as a pantomime or be whimsical and reusable. Trust us when we say you should never underestimate how easy it is.
A denim jacket can be transformed into Dustin from Stranger Things by adding a baseball cap, flannel and corduroy. It’s as easy as pairing his fitted black t-shirt with skinny jeans for a T-Bird look. From “Grease”. Sports shorts, on the other hand, help bring out the “Baywatch” vibe. As long as you don’t mind getting your old white T-shirt dirty, you can use the exact same pair as Forrest Gump.
Some costumes require face paint and accessories such as masks, wigs and capes, but most can be achieved without spending a single dollar. These Halloween costumes for men are so easy to handle that anyone can handle them, so don’t be intimidated. Get ready to take on the challenge.
