Crunchy leaves, candy corn and jack-o-lanterns.

The Superhero In Disguise
You may have a classic 9 to 5 job by day, but that's a cover for your true calling: Saving the world. Dress in business attire, but add a colorful solid color tee under your collared shirt. Leave the middle buttons open and throw your necktie over your shoulder. Bonus points for a cape and super hero poses.
Materials: Suit, collared shirt, business-appropriate necktie, bright solid color t-shirt, cape (optional).
Nerd alert! Here's a simple costume you can put together at the last minute, but it will look like you went all out. Make sure to cuff your pants into floods, add masking tape to the center of your glasses and fill your shirt pocket with pens.
Here's your chance to dress to the nines. Shower, shave, comb your hair and put on your best black suit with a sharp white shirt and black bow tie and pocket square. If you're going to a party, stay in character and have a martini, shaken not stirred.
Materials: Black suit, white collared shirt, black bow tie, white pocket square.
If you own a white suit, your costume is almost ready. Simply accessorize with a black kentucky colonel tie and you're ready for Halloween. Bonus points for breaking out your best southern drawl and carrying around a bucket of fried chicken.
Materials: White suit, white collared shirt, black kentucky colonel tie, fried chicken (optional).
Crabby Old Man
Here's an easy DIY costume you can have a lot of fun with. Make sure to wear your pants a bit higher than normal and stay in character by telling all the young hooligans to 'keep it down, sonny'. If you have access to a cane or want to buy one, tennis balls on the end will add to your look.
Materials: Cardigan or sport coat, collared shirt, slacks, bow tie, suspenders, oversized glasses, tennis ball cane (optional).
Costume? No Way.
Costumes aren't for everyone. But if you're a dad of little ones or going to a Halloween party (especially with a date), we suggest getting into the spirit just a bit. Go all out with a Halloween paisley tie or try a more subtle look with an orange and black striped tie or a simple orange solid tie.
