We know for most of us, Halloween means dressing up, being over the top and scaring the hell out of everyone. But we know some of you just wants to dress up, just slightly, to get in the mood. So we've put together 10 subtle Halloween options for you to choose from!

From simple statement cartoon characters to food-inspired costumes, you'll be able to strut about town feeling not that out of place and looking festively appropriate.

If you and your best friend are still looking for matching costumes, here's one you can use. The grunge look is a trend that was popular back in the 90s and these two ladies, Daria and Jane, were the perfect encapsulation of that angsty teenage girl aesthetic. 


2. Clark Kent to Superman

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman! Pre-transformation Superman takes the form of the geeky hunk Clark Kent. In his simple office get-up of a white button down, trousers, a tie and suspenders, this look is easy to pull off. Just add a Superman t-shirt underneath, and you're good to go. Really great for folks who need to be at important meetings and party after.


3. Wednesday Addams
