Work Appropriate Halloween Costumes
With Halloween coming just around the corner, it’s time to think of some neat and creative costumes! Some of us are so excited about Halloween that we’re even planning on wearing our costumes throughout the work day. And why not? Depending on your office work environment, coming in with a costume is a breath of fresh air and stirs up some holiday excitement. As long as it’s office-appropriate and doesn’t distract us from completing the job, we might as well! Stuck for ideas this season?
The cast of Seinfeld is perfect for a hilarious team costume and it’s office-friendly! Dig through your closet for roomy vintage silhouettes and top off your look with hair gel. Check out our list of other work appropriate Halloween costumes we’ll love to see!
Steve Urkel: For some more 90’s #TBT inspiration, imitate a cast from Family Matters. Channel leading funny-man Steve Urkel with high-waisted jeans, suspenders, and large round specs! “Did I do that!?”
Starbucks Drink: As office employees- we know we can’t function without the morning cup of joe (or maybe even several cups!). Pump some syrup in your costume by coming in dressed as your favorite drink! Adding some tan leggings make this look very appropriate for work!
Rose the Riveter: “We can do it!” Add some attitude to your costume by channeling Rosie the Riveter! This look is simple and utilizes props you can easily find in your closet!
Zombie: You can’t go wrong with the classic scary Zombie costume! Dig through your closet for some ripped clothes and splatter some red paint for a creepy effect. “I… want… brains…”
Skeleton: Take some inspiration from this simple yet spooky kid’s costume! Dress up from head to toe in black and create “bones” out of white Duck Tape! Graphic duck tape is a great fix to kick-start any creative ideas.
OITNB: Dress up as your favorite character from Orange is the New Black! Take style points from Piper, Suzanne, and Sophia and you’re on your way to your next Halloween costume. Opt for tan jump suits for a closer resemblance to the cast.
Vincent Van Gogh: Feeling a little creative? Channel your inner artist by dressing up as the one and only, Vincent Van Gogh! Go nuts with the paint streaks!
Pop Art: Up for a even bigger challenge? Take lessons from Andy Warhol’s pop art techniques with carefully streak face paint. The black angular strokes highlight your facial features. Complete your look with bright graphics and a fun wig!
Ned Flanders: Who doesn’t remember The Simpsons? Show some love for your all-time favorite animation by dressing up as a character! This Ned Flander’s look is simple yet effective. Yellow body paint, optional. “My Satan sense is tingling!”
Finding Waldo: Double up your red & white stripe shirts for a Finding Waldo costume! Even better, this look gives you an excuse to play some hide-n-seek at work! Top off the look with a matching beanie and black specs.
Superheros: Looking for team Halloween costume idea? Try going for The Incredibles, The Avengers, or even The Justice League. We love superheros! Just make sure your costume covers up and is appropriate for work!
