Top Trendy, Sexy Halloween Costumes for Women

Toss that simple cat costume out the window and opt for a sexy suit for this year's Halloween. Here are our favorite trendy women's costumes to make your October 31st unforgettable.

Fall is coming fast and you know what that means, Halloween is right around the corner! So you must be thinking to yourself "hmm...I wonder what I should be for Halloween this year."

We searched for the top 10 trendiest and sexiest costumes for Halloween to help inspire your look this year and found some pretty awesome Halloween costumes to choose from.

Like always, big movies from the past year (we're looking at you Avengers, Brave and Batman) are the inspiration behind many of this season's hottest costumes, but there are also a few pop stars, fashion trends and party themes inspiring this year's Halloween costumes.


  • Katy Perry

    Katy Perry has proven to be a super star this year. Not only did she come out hotter than ever after her much publicized divorce from Russell Brand, but she also happened to enjoy some massive hit singles from her #1 selling album “Teenage Dream.” With her sassy style guiding you, a Katy Perry look this Halloween will be fun, eye-catching, colorful and trendy to rock this year!

  • Snow White and the Evil Queen

    While others are still talking about the dramatic affair offset, we're moving on to the inspiration this hit movie offers for Halloween. The film gave us quite a sexy spin on the two leading ladies and we're loving the idea of dressing up like one of them for Halloween 2012.

  • Nicki Minaj

    Last year ladies channeled their inner Gaga, but this year, pink rules. Nicki Minaj had an explosive 2012 and with her one-of-a-kind style, she's sure to be a big inspiration for sexy 2012 costumes.

  • The Black Widow

    The Avengers was the #1 movie this year, which is why The Black Widow is sure to be a top costume choice for Halloween 2012. She's sexy, smart and kick-ass - like so many ladies we know!

  • Mad Men - Ladies

    The cast of Mad Men returned earlier this spring and the sexy leading ladies on the show are sure to inspire lots of looks this Halloween.

  • Katniss from The Hunger Games

    Move over vampires, there's a new teen queen in town! Katniss doesn't have to show a ton of skin to claim a spot on our list of sexiest 2012 costumes.

  • Catwoman

    She is without a doubt this year’s top super villain. With her wit and sexy style, Catwoman is bound to be a top Halloween costume pick among woman everywhere this year. Now I don’t know about you, but I have always looked for a reason to wear a tight black suit and this just gives me the perfect excuse!
