Halloween in your Office

It seems like Halloween costumes for Women from big box party stores are getting shorter and skimpier by the year. Thus making it harder to find something fun yet appropriate for work. Even though Halloween is on a Saturday this year, many office will be celebrating on Friday the 30th so you need to be prepared. Chicastic has a lot of ways you can create a great looks for Halloween whether you work at a school, in  an office or anything in between.

Our line of leggings are the perfect jumping off point for several animal themed costumes. They come in snake, cheetah, leopard print. We also have  a zebra print pattern. Simply pair with a shirt or blouse of corresponding pattern or complementary colors.  For all but the snake, for which a simple forked tongue painted on by the bottom lip will do, color in your nose with black or brown face paint and draw on some whiskers. Top off with a pair of ears and a tail and you’re ready to roll!

In addition to animal themed costumes, with these star patterned leggings available in both dark blue and black,  you can go as the night sky or use them as the background for another object in the solar system! Then get creative and take a black or dark blue t-shirt and create the planet or other celestial bodies any way you desire. Some methods include puff paint and bleach, or you buy or make small 3-d models you can attach.

You could take it back to the 80’s and sport this top and tank combo off the shoulder. Pair with leggings, the more colorful the better like these patterned ones, sneakers like high-top Converse or slip on Vans, leg warmers, and a side pony tail. Top it off with a sweat band and a pair larger than life hoop earrings and you’re basically Olivia Newton John.

When you’re ready to go out on Halloween night and want to jazz your costume up a bit, our line of corsets are a perfect way to do a “sexy” costume on your own terms! Let Chicastic help you find your perfect costume no matter what the occasion!

Be a super hero or villain with this red and black patent leather corset. Channel Ant Man or Harley Quinn depending if you’re good or evil.

Want to put a modern spin on a classic costume, like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz? Pair a blue gingham dress with our ruby red t-strap heels. Dorothy herself would be jealous.  Ditch the basket but stay in step with the character with this chevron straw clutch. Toto can’t fit in there but your phone, wallet and keys sure can.
