Trick or Treat? Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas for Adults


Step aside, pint-size ghouls and goblins on parade. The grown-ups are reclaiming Halloween. Last we checked, there was no age limit on a wicked good time. We’re all in favor of playing dress-up, whether you’re going out for your thrills or staying in and ignoring the doorbell.

This year, Bare Necessities has easy do-it-yourself costume ideas made up of good-looking separates you’ll re-wear after the Halloween party is over, as well as tongue-in-cheek sexy costumes designed explicitly (and we do mean that literally) for the bedroom.

Mischief Night, redefined.

TRICKS: Sexy D.I.Y. Costume Ideas (You’ll Actually Wear Again)

With a supremely versatile black bodysuit, shimmery sheer hosiery, a handful of rings, platform heels and a half-up bouffant, you and your squad will be set to put your hands up and get down. (Do consider meeting in advance to polish off your choreography.)

A button-down shirt never goes out of style, as this 80s classic proves. Just add tube socks, white briefs and a makeshift microphone. Bonus: After the party, you can crash directly into bed, no outfit change necessary.

In a track jacket, strappy black sports bra, leggings, sneakers and a high ponytail, you’ll be cutely costumed and supremely comfortable—guess Mel C was onto something. Bonus points: Eat candy with abandon because you’ll be taking every one of these pieces to the gym with you the next weekend.

CHARACTER STUDY: Adult Disney Costumes
Everyone who grew up on the animated classics identifies with certain cartoon royalty. Are you feeling like a little mermaid, Arabian princess, ice queen, French beauty or poisoned apple princess? For comic book fans, there’s a sexy harlequin costume (just maybe don’t call your significant other a joker).
