Whether you’re a teacher, a student, or just someone who loves Halloween, dressing the part during spooky season adds to the fun. But since not all schools allow dressing up for Halloween (and not everyone feels comfortable in full costume), why not try a cozy Halloween sweatshirt or comfy T-shirt? If you’re looking for something more formal, there are even button-down Halloween shirts you can buy. Some designs are subdued and feature delicate embroidery, while others are louder and in your face. Still others are funny and feature oh-so-hilarious plays on words. Check out our list of favorite Halloween shirts for both adults and kids!
