3 Office Appropriate Halloween Costume Ideas

It’s Halloween season and I’ve enlisted my fashionable sister at I Have A Degree In This! to share some office appropriate costume ideas. Every year, our office goes all out for this holiday. If you don’t wear a costume, you definitely stand out. It is a struggle nowadays to find ‘work appropriate’ costumes- especially for women!

Some general guidelines:

- Avoid controversial topics.
- Keep it classy.
- No alcohol references.
- Avoid weapons, masks, or armor. You don’t want to sit in your office with that on all day.

Work Appropriate Halloween Costume
Where to buy this costume idea:

Idea #1: 1950s retro. Get inspired by Sandy from Grease with poodle skirts and ice cream dates. This is a good decade to find demure style inspiration. Where an off the shoulder sweater for a more covered up version of Olivia Newton John’s look. Red converse give you comfort but also still fit the retro look. Lastly, tie a bandana in your hair for the finish touch!

Idea #2: TV/Movie Character. Go as your favorite TV/movie character because dressing up as a character is what Halloween is all about. You can seem up-to-date on pop culture references without getting too controversial.

Idea #3: Classic costumes. Witch, super hero, Wizard of Oz character, construction worker, etc. Sure they may be boring but classics work. Most likely you’ll be able to find many of the pieces in your wardrobe so you’ll save money as well.

What costume do you plan on wearing to your office’s Halloween party?

    • Thanks, Kerri! I’ve been amazed at some of the Halloween costumes I’ve seen. Now that I have small children, I find it challenging to find a cute costume that isn’t trashy.
