Halloween unofficially kicks off the stacked holiday-season-party schedule and any Gotham girl knows that means effortlessly moving from the office to out on the town faster than a New York minute on a daily basis. How to master this tricky transformation?
Congrats, if you work in the fashion or creative industry. It’s pretty much bible that you show up to the office in full costume and character starting at least a week in advance. The wilder and more unique the getup, the more on-the-job credibility is established. Hitting up happy hour? No prob. You’ve been rocking out as a witch since 9 am.
If you work in a more traditional setting where suits and pantyhose reign supreme, chances are they won’t appreciate those bunny ears in the board room. However, a simple work appropriate black or grey shift dress is essentially a blank slate for all sorts of spooky incarnations. Leave the reading material at home and load up that trusty tote of yours with cat ears, a tail, perhaps some Dracula fangs and a makeup kit with everything needed to conjure up a creepy look in the bathroom. Eyeliner is key for drawing just about anything on your face.
If you’re super no frills and you would rather be dead than play dress up, the easiest road to fright night is finding a graphic tee that embodies the idea of a costume. Let’s face it, sometimes all the effort that needs to happen after work is holding a martini glass. Totally get it. Statement tees have had a major fashion moment as of late and with a quick Google search you can find one that fits your personality or whatever else you want to be – no crazy disguises necessary.
