1. Best Work Halloween Costumes The Whole Office Will Love
Trust me; I know it can be tricky to find a work-appropriate Halloween costume that’s clever and HR-friendly. Even more so when your choice needs to be comfortable enough to wear it all day long. The solution here is to focus on easy Halloween costume ideas for both men and women. Outfits that you can easily throw on in a few minutes.
Some of you might be thinking of flying solo, partnering up with your work best friend, or even joining your coworkers for a group costume. Do you want to wear a punny or pop culture costume this year? For a unisex look, you can choose a Halloween t-shirt or hoodie and combine it with your favorite chino or jeans.
Do you have a glamorous black dress? Well, you can combine it with a necklace made of a deck of cards and become a Halloween Queen of Spades. Both women and men can go with the safe choice of dressing up as The Men In Black. All you need is a pair of slick black shades, and your black suit and a tie. If you’re a fan of the TV series Westworld you could try dressing as one of the main characters like Dolores and William. Do you like The Office? Go for that! Another safe choice is Wednesday from the Addams Family.
But my all-time favorite is teaming up with your work partner in crime and dressing like bandits. The key surprise here would be to stash leftover snacks and candy in your “money bags!”
2. Best Teacher Halloween Costumes To Have Fun In Class
Are you looking for teacher-friendly Halloween costume ideas? What about a Safari outfit? You can fly solo or pair up with one of your colleagues to create a special version of your very own Tarzan or Jane for a stylish safari look. Neutral colors and safari must-haves like binoculars can give more context clues. Yet, another one of my safe-for-work costume choices is to dress up like Where’s Waldo. That’s a great choice for all the bookworms out there.
A Mary Poppin costume could also save the day. You can complete the classic look by dressing up like Disney’s OG star. To make it even more complete, pair it up with a parrot head umbrella. Kids will love it! Oh, one more of my favorite teacher special is to dress up as a smart cookie… You can create a DIY costume that will prove that you’re as smart (and sweet) as everybody says you are. Simply tape cookie cut-outs to your blue graduation gown and show everyone what’s what!
If you’re into Starwars and want to let everyone know just how obsessed you are with the franchise, there’s no better way than suiting up as Han Solo. Yet another cute choice is to style yourself as Edna Mode from The Incredibles. Her futuristic tailoring and blunt haircut are stylish and distinctive, it won’t go unnoticed by your class.
Of course, you can always dress like the scientist of your choice. For example, you could go for an Albert Einstein or Bill Nye spin. Heck, you can even transform into the infamous Elizabeth Holmes. All you need to do is use a white lab coat as a base for your costume!
Oh, don’t forget to check our slick spooktacular teacher t-shirt to impress your class!
