19 Work-Appropriate Halloween Costumes to Wear to the Office

Is your office throwing a Halloween bash during or after work? Are you allowed to dress up in disguise on or around October 31 rather than showing up in your typical workwear? Then there is just one simple thing to keep in mind: Make sure your costume is work-appropriate, because even if your office is down with Halloween, it's super important to keep it SFW (safe for work). That means it may be wise to skip the slightly more risqué, skin-baring, and gory outfits and makeup, instead opting for something that is more, well, HR-friendly.

Need some help with creative costume ideas for work? Then you're in luck because below, we've curated a list of 19 Halloween looks to try if you're unsure about how to dress up. You'll find one of the most popular and, quite frankly, easiest looks to put together. (Sneak preview: Where's Waldo only requires a striped red shirt, a pair of round glasses, and a red pom-pom.) And if you're a movie buff, you'll find plenty of characters costume ideas as well, from a trendy take on Harry Potter to the super-adorable Boo from Monsters, Inc. As you can see, we tried covering it all in the realm of easy, fun, but work-appropriate Halloween costumes to try. Ready to see what we found? Then read on for our office-friendly costume edit.
