Ah, Halloween, the only chance to truly break from your office-appropriate outfits and dress up in vintage getups and face makeup—if you're into that. By all means, take part in some costume-contest shenanigans, but remember: The same rules don't apply as did during your anything-goes college party days. (Nobody wants to get sent to HR here.)
Below, inspiration for Halloween looks that don't involve the term "sexy," colored contacts, or spoonfuls of fake blood (plus the pieces to buy to get the look). Instead, think pop-culture icons, along with easy people or things to imitate.
