Dressing up for Halloween at work (opens in new tab) 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 face paint (opens in new tab) 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 25 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).

1.The Cast of 'The Office'

This one might be obvious, but it's super easy to copy when you're in, well, the office. While you might not have a camera following you and your coworkers around every day, you should still stock up on your "World's Best Boss" mugs just in case. Bonus points for going as "hole punch Jim" for some added flair.

Never forget that Meghan MArkle was once a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal before her big break on Suits. All you need to copy the look is a briefcase each, some colored paper, and megawatt smiles. Put on the same dress in a single color, and you'll be good to go.
