8 Sexy Halloween Costumes You Can Make With Lingerie

There are plenty of valuable life lessons in Mean Girls, but when October hits and everyone starts planning their Halloween costumes, there's one quote that pops to mind: "Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it. The hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears."
Halloween slut-shaming aside, the movie taught us that making a last-minute costume is pretty damn easy, as long as you've got a stocked lingerie drawer. Whether you're strapped for costume options or want something sexy on a budget, your nice nightgowns or bra and panty sets can save you.
And this year, lingerie-based costumes may be easier to pull off than ever. When I dressed up as a lingerie-based mouse my freshman year of college, the main problem I faced was the weather. I was basically a frozen mousicle by the end of the evening. But, this year, you might be more inclined to stay in, even if you dress up, due to the pandemic. After all, The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention says Halloween parties and trick-or-treating are risky. As such, you might want to keep your festivities inside, within your bubble. And luckily, you can still flaunt your spooky, sexy garb on Instagram.
All you'll need is a few accessories (not just animal ears) to pull off several creative costumes. Read on for a little inspiration.
