28 Cute Halloween Costumes That Will Keep You Warm

The grandma in me approves.

In college, less was more when it came to Halloween costumes. I would walk out in my fairy costume, which was just a sequin green minidress with wings, without a coat on, in 50-degree weather. It was either brave the cold or risk having a stranger spill jungle juice on my jacket, so I braved it. I survived all four years of wearing barely-there costumes, huddling with my friends as we waited for car rides to parties. Fast forward to post-college life and I can not imagine leaving my house on October 31 in anything other than my puffer coat. (If I leave the house at all. Grandma life is the best.) I now pick out my costumes based on the level of warmness it provides. A koala animal onesie? Very warm. A "sexy" Alice in Wonderland dress? Not so warm.

Whether you're taking your nieces and nephews on a social distance trick-or-treating or hosting something virtually with friends this season, I came up with several cute yet cozy and warm Halloween outfit ideas for you. The looks all center around a jacket, coat, blazer, and even a robe. If you hate the cold, join me in staying covered up on Oct. 31.

Who's the most fashionable child star in the Kardashian family? That would be North West. She's worn many memorable outfits, which I have recounted here, including this monochrome orange look. It was bold, daring, and required a true fashionista to rock it. Whether you chose to play the role of North or Kim on Oct. 31, you already won the costume contest.

She has since renounced wearing any real fur (we like the sound of that), though this outfit she wore to a Yeezy Season 3 show might be her most iconic yet. If you're really trying to live your best Kim K lifestyle, dropping $1k for an almost exact replica of her coat wouldn't be extreme, here.
