Halloween is just around the corner, and I, personally, can’t wait to break out the festive clothing. Key word: Clothing. Because while some people (understandably) despise wearing costumes or aren’t allowed to at the office, there are still tons of creative, sophisticated, chic ways to get in the spooky spirit without actually dressing up as anyone other than your stylish self.

Ahead, check out 32 of chicest, coolest Halloween-inspired items to buy right now. Happy Halloween shopping!
