Shopping for a Halloween costume can be a fun and exciting process. Whether you opt for a creepy vampire look or a pop culture-inspired style, you’re bound to discover something worth showing off on the night of the 31st.

Though fun, costume planning and shopping can also get pretty exhausting — and the worst part is that most outfits can only be worn on one night of the year.

Instead of wasting time and effort for a single event, we found plenty of pieces that can be worn on multiple occasions including Halloween night.

These ideas incorporate versatile pieces you can use year-round. That blouse you bought to pull off a perfect pirate look? Wear it to the office the following weekend!

Read on to see the costumes you can wear time and time again.
