Lingerie expert Jada Michaels and owner of JadaMichaels.com, a Web site for lingerie and couture shoes, said Halloween is the one night of the year when every woman gets to live out her fantasy and dress super sexy and nothing is over the top.
"We've progressed Halloween these last few years from sexy nurse costumes to body paint," Michaels said in a statement.
"Halloween is the one time when it's OK to finally wear those sexy costumes that we dream of wearing without anyone holding judgment."
To make your costume even sexier, choose a character you think is sexy -- in the past it was Snooki or Lady Gaga, but this year the trend is more hot chef, Cupid, sexy flappers, free-love hippies and Goth girls, Michaels said.
"Second, make the costume your own. For example, add a leopard bra, black-diamond fishnet stockings, a rhinestone-studded belt and thigh-high boots," Micheals said.
Michaels conducted a poll to find out which Halloween costume ideas men thought were sexiest. Among the winners were a "Ms. Gangsta" costume, which features a pinstripe dress with a side slit and sultry hat, and "Wild Thing," a costume consisting of a leopard print bodysuit with opera-length animal print gloves, ears and tail.
