3 WORKPLACE HALLOWEEN LOOKS THAT ARE ANYTHING BUT HAUNTED

Halloween, our favorite day of frightful tricks and haunted treats, is quickly approaching. But just because we may be heading to work on October 31st, rather than heading to an epic Halloween party or going door-to-door for some trick-or-treating, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to embrace our favorite spooktacular Halloween looks in our workplace attire. (After all, we’re never too old to get on board with a theme outfit.)

If you’re looking for a way to be festive this upcoming Halloween without donning a full-on costume — or if you’re looking for an outfit that you can wear to work and then easily transition into party attire — we’ve got you covered. Here are some spellbinding workplace Halloween looks that will help you show off your spooky spirit (no pun intended) this October 31st.

For a dark, gothic Halloween look…

To dress up for Halloween, you don’t have to fully embrace a character or costume to give off the haunted, eerie vibes. Instead, channel the amazing gothic style of fashion icons like Morticia and Gomez Addams, and go for a dark, vintage look that will leave you feeling extra creepy and kooky.

Dark and gothic workplace halloween styles and costume inspiration

Items to inspire your workplace outfit:

  • Silken Printed Maxi Dress from Free People: The regal emerald color of this dress paired with the vintage lace pattern makes the perfect base for a high-fashion, gothic look.
  • Marrakech Knit Moto Jacket from Anthropologie: Adding a black moto jacket on top of a lace-patterned dress will help to bring some darkness and casualness to your look. 
  • Nekoda Logo-Table Combat Boots from Guess: Really take your gothic look to the next level by contrasting the lace, elegant dress with a pair of edgy, black combat boots that will help bring a modern vibe to this vintage look.
  • Serpent Stud Earrings from Annie Bing: Finish off your look with some spooky jewelry, such as these snake studs that add a feel of rebellious elegance to any dark outfit. 

For a rock god Halloween look…

Pay homage to great music (and fashion) icons like Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler by channeling your inner exuberant rockstar in your workplace Halloween look. Pair loud prints like paisley or floral, with a beautiful button-down shirt that you leave halfway open. For some extra flare, add accessories like a wide-brimmed hat or silk scarf to create a truly memorable look that will go down in the rock hall of fame.

This is one of those easy workplace Halloween looks to pull-off during the day, and then you can simply add some cat ears and painted-on whiskers to take it into an evening party costume.
