Halloween is a great time to showcase your creativity. However, it can be extremely difficult to find an office friendly costume. There are sexy costumes for fun at the clubs and bars but you definitely don’t want to dressed up as a sexy bumblebee and see your CEO.
First and foremost, before even thinking about wearing a costume to work, contact the Human Resources and make sure it won’t be a distraction.
Below are some cute costume ideas that won’t shock anyone at the office –
- Mad Men – The hit television show has had a huge impact on women fashion in the last few years. The retro, office style has come back full force and women of all sizes can rock a pencil skirt or a fitted plaid dress. The best part, you can wear the ‘costume’ even after Halloween. Stores from Banana Republic to Forever 21 to H&M carry 1960 inspired clothing. You can be the office vixen (Joan), homemaker (Betty) or come up with your own character. Put your hair up in a French twist or high bun, rock the red lipstick and be confident!
- Sock Hop girl – Get ready to do the twist and rock poodle skirt. If you are a crafty gal, check out Martha Stewart tutorial (http://www.marthastewart.com/856100/poodle-skirt-how) on how to make one or check out Target or a Halloween costume store. Combine that with a white dress shirt and a scarf for your neck or hair and you are ready for the sock hop! If you don’t have Saddle Shoes, wear your oxford dress shoes or heels.
- Flapper Girl or Gatsby Party Girl – Flapper dresses are fun to wear because they come in an array of colors and the movement of the dress. Halloween shops will have the dresses but there are online stores like ASOS , Mod Cloth, Piperlime that have flapper dresses that are a little more modern. Wear pearls and put a feather in your hair for a roaring good time at work. Make up in the 1920s was very dramatic and bold; have fun with it!
- Witch – You can have a lot of fun with the classic Halloween costume. Wear a black dress or a black top and black skirt, a witch hat and wear some fun green or purple heels.
Just make sure you aren't showing to much skin and feel comfortable in your costume. Wait until after work to wear your sexy costume.
What will you be for Halloween this year?
