17 Halloween Costumes You Can Rock With Your Coat
On more than one Halloween, we've found ourselves outside, shivering as cool Fall air hit our bare arms. "Crap," we thought, hugging ourselves and searching for body heat. "Should have brought a coat."
But the truth was, a coat didn't go with sexy cat or evil doll or whatever costume it was we rocked that year. So this time around, we planned ahead, finding 17 looks that combine comfort and style by incorporating outwear. Read on for a few ideas to keep you warm on the 31st, outsmarting Mother Nature but still staying chic. How's that for a treat, huh?
