6 Genius Buys You Can Wear Well After Halloween's Over

There are several things we truly hate to waste: money, time, and, especially, the contents of our closets. If we can't find new use for a piece we've owned and loved or a new owner, it's a real shame. So, as we prepare for Halloween night (and maybe even winning a best dressed award), we've set our sights on items that will look amazing on October 31 — and just as good afterward. Waste not, want not — these next six buys are the smartest Halloween purchases you could make.

Wednesday Addams was probably one of our first style icons in her always, all-black ensembles and the most perfect set of braids we've ever seen. Follow her lead in this frock. (Extra points if you carry around a matching baby doll.)

You've been trying all summer to make those adorable overalls not look too hokey, but now's the time to use them for what they're made for. Create your own ranch-hand look with a neckerchief and straw hat for an equally cute, and — yes — comfortable, winning costume.

Turn down the costume vibes a bit and switch in a thin turtleneck and a pair of stilettos. The transformation is nothing short of amazing.

You're already pretty, darn smart every other day of the year, but for All Hallows Eve really lay on the brain power. Break out your thickest glasses, the old TI-84, suspenders, a brain helmet, the works, and let your inner nerdiness shine.
