The thought of getting fully dressed in a Halloween costume for work is a little daunting, not to mention, maybe embarrassing. What if no one else dresses up? What if I look like a fool!? are some thoughts that race through my head. But it’s Halloween — we’re supposed to look foolish, right?
Nonetheless, what’s appropriate for a Halloween party may not be so for a day at the office, so it’s best to tone it down just in case. I like to think about costumes where I won’t have to wear a wig, face paint, or strange makeup. I also look for characters with the same hair color so I can easily style my hair to pull off the look.
I’ve come up with 10 festive but subtle Halloween costumes you won’t be embarrassed to wear to work that may be as easy as looking in your own closet for.
