9 Halloween Costume Ideas for Denim Heads

Rivet's 2020 Denim Circularity report takes a deep dive into how the global denim industry is plotting its circular future amidst a worldwide pandemic.

In a year that will bring smaller, socially distant Halloween celebrations, ditch the single-use costumes for ones that make use of the jeans already in your closet—or on your shopping list.

Halloween offers the perfect excuse to try on flare jeans or test your sartorial boundaries with Y2K denim style.

The best—and most sustainable—kind of Halloween costumes are the ones that you can wear after Oct. 31.
