11 Cute Halloween Costumes That Will Keep You Warm

Finally, outfit ideas that involve a coat.

In college, less was more when it came to Halloween. 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.

Though I am tempted to dress up as a koala again, I do want to try a new costume this time around. Thus, I came up with several cute yet cozy and warm Halloween outfit ideas. The looks all center around a jacket or coat. If you hate the cold too, join me in staying covered up on Oct. 31.

Channel Andy Scahs' laidback journalist vibes in a brown leather jacket, black turtleneck, and dark blue denim. If you've watched this movie a hundred times (no? just me?), then you know the outfit is an iconic representation of who Andy is pre, and even post, Miranda Priestly. Plus, the look gives you a reason to stay in your fall clothes in lieu of skimpier ensembles.

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, below.
