Dressing up for Halloween at work throws you into a tricky predicament: You need to find a costume that’s cute but won't get you in trouble with your boss—or, worse, HR (sorry, sexy cat costume from last year). Plus, before you whip out the eye makeup and the fairy wings, consider that you’ll have to wear your full getup on your morning commute. But since dressing up with other people is more fun than going it alone, you should grab your coworkers and make Halloween a true group effort. Nothing promotes team bonding like deciding which wigs to wear or who will be which character from your favorite sitcom. Ahead, find 29 of the best group Halloween costumes that will win you and your coworkers a place in the costume contest (but also won't make you look crazy while sitting at your desk and actually getting work done).

These little yellow guys are not only adorable, but they also make for an easy costume. Denim overalls and yellow makeup carry the look here, but glasses and fun accessories can also add to your despicable costume.

There's no question that 2023 is the year of Barbie. The film has Margot Robbie in so many iconic costumes, which were practically made to recreate for Halloween. For a group, steal a look from Barbie's closet, or for an easier (and more comfortable) look, opt for the Barbies' pink jumpsuit.

Taylor Swift has had one hell of a year, and you can bet she's going to be the inspiration behind a ton of costumes. Each of her album eras has a distinct vibe, making it the perfect costume to tackle as a group. Think cowboy boots for "Fearless," a fedora for "22," an edgy bodysuit for "Reputation," and a rainbow dress for "Lover." The list goes on and on.

'90s babies know and love the DCOM The Cheetah Girls so this is a no-brainer costume if your office leans on the millennial and Gen-Z side. Get matching velour tracksuits and cheetah print tanks and you're good to go. Don't blame me if your group suddenly wants to bust out into song.
