Dressing up for Halloween as an adult usually means choosing between a sexified version of a cute animal and something a grandparent might wear while taking the kids trick or treating. That can make picking a costume for a work party like walking through a minefield. You don’t want to end up with something NSFW, but you still want to look cute and professional.
The trick is to look for something modest yet relevant or timeless. For example, these five costumes are some of the best adult Halloween costumes for office parties. They’ll help you stand out from the pack, without offending your boss. Scroll through our options and decide which one looks like the most fun to you.
1. A Strawberry
Strawberries are everyone’s favorite fruit, right? Perhaps that’s an exaggeration, but dressing as a strawberry for Halloween is definitely appropriate for a work party and perfectly cute. This costume includes a printed, sleeveless dress made from cotton and polyester spandex. The headband is not included but can be purchased separately.
2. Orange Is the New Black Character
Since its debut in 2013, Orange Is the New Black has become one of the most-watched TV shows on Netflix. It has also made for some pretty epic Halloween costumes. And thanks to the full-coverage offered by a prisoner’s jumpsuit, going to your work party as Piper, Crazy Eyes or any other member of the crew is totally acceptable. This costume includes an orange scrub set and a name tag printed with your name.
3. Flo From Progressive
Could your coworkers use a little insurance advice? Tell them about Progressive’s “Compare and Save” feature at your Halloween party. While that would be slightly obnoxious any other day, it won’t be the least bit annoying when you’re dressed as Flo from the Progressive commercials. A cute and safe-for-work costume, this set comes with a white apron printed with Progressive across the front, a Flo name tag, an “I love insurance” pin, a wig and a blue headband. All you need to do is wear your own white shirt and pants to complete the look.
4. Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast At Tiffany’s
If you’d rather add a little glam to your office Halloween party, consider dressing as the queen of glam herself, Audrey Hepburn. Her role in Breakfast At Tiffany’s is unforgettable and as such has inspired thousands of Halloween costumes over the years. Donning a timeless black dress along with gloves, jewels and a cigarette holder will send all the right signals to your coworkers. This costume set comes with a jeweled tiara, fake diamond earrings, a 5-strand pearl choker, long, black gloves and an extendable cigarette holder.
5. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
We’re calling it now. The most popular couples costume for 2018 is definitely going to be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a.k.a. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Call dibs on the ultimate Halloween duo by ordering the Maskarade Royal Mask Pack. It includes a pair of 2D masks printed with the faces of the royal couple themselves. Each mask has the eyes cut out and an elastic band for securing the mask to your head.
