*Updated October 2019 with new costumes and pictures!
Sometimes you just can’t imagine going through work on Halloween without having a costume, but your work isn’t a costume-friendly workplace. Here are a few costumes that you can probably get away with wearing at work:
Wednesday, Adams Family
Just wear a white button down with a black sweater, black skirt, black shoes and braid your hair down to capture the look but also look professional.
Hermoine, Harry Potter
Just don’t make it a “sexy Hermoine” and you should be all set for work.
Dana Scully, XFiles
Sara Du Jour did a great tutorial on a Belle costume here. An easy way to get this costume would be to get a white collared shirt underneath a blue sleeves shift dress and just add a white apron front.
Rory Gilmore, Gilmore Girls
There are so many iconic outfits from Gilmore Girls, but none is more iconic than Rory’s Chilton uniform. Just carry a few books around and your outfit is complete!
Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffanys
Holly Golightly in front of Tiffany’s is a classic, easy look to get from items you probably already have in your closet.
Agent M from Men In Black
You need a white button up, black blazer, black tie, black trousers and black combat boots. Helpful would be rayban style sunglasses and a neuralyzer from Party City.
Meryl Streep’s Character Mary Louise in Big Little Lies
Honestly, this isn’t too far off from what I wear to work normally, but getting the details like the cross necklace would be crucial.
Sabrina from the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
I am OBSESSED with this remake of Sabrina the teenage witch. I just bought a Spellman Mortuary t-shirt which I will wear 100% of the time I’m not at work this month.
Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex
At this point, the outfit I most remember her wearing is a trench dress. Refinery29 did a whole slideshow of different Meghan Markle costumes, so be sure to check there too.
After watching all the seasons and the movie this year, I really feel like I get Veronica’s look. You just need to have a comfortable leather jacket, a huge messenger bag, and a camera.
Janet from the Good Place
If you’re not watching the Good Place, you need to be. Binge it all on Netflix so you’re caught up to watch the final season which is airing now.
