Personally, I prefer being warm on Halloween and am willing to sacrifice the look of my costume so I don't freeze. Usually, this just means wearing a coat. In order to be helpful to anyone who might be going out on Halloween itself, here's a list of warm costume ideas that you can probably still make sexy if you want:
Sexy Ski Bum - Wear black leggings, a long-sleeved t-shirt and a puffy vest. If you have ski poles, carry them to complete the costume. (These will be helpful if you want to ward off unwanted advances.) This goes against my rule that leggings are not pants, but it lets you remain in the "sexy costume" category by showing off your legs that have been toned on the slopes.

Caterpillar to Butterfly - Wear all black under a puffy down coat, the full-length kind. Wear some antennae and, on the way to your party, you can be the cozy, cute caterpillar. When you arrive, attach some brightly colored wings and you're a sexy butterfly!
|If you get it in white, you can also go as the Michelin Man.|
What was your costume this year? How did you choose it?
