Men’s Halloween Costumes Women think are Hot!

Guys often get overlooked in the shadows of Ladies show-stealing outfits, but we gotta hand it to them—they look damn fine in these handsome get-ups rounded up by the Girls at!  Move over, men in uniforms. We love a man in costume!

These are the Men’s Halloween Costumes that Women think are  the Hottest!


He doesn’t have to be a country boy to look good in a cowboy costume! The hat, the bandana, the low-slung, tight jeans—this look gets us fired up every time.


Aye aye, captain! There’s something about this rugged sailor look that makes us swoon like schoolgirls. Somehow guys manage to make those silly looking caps look sexy, especially when paired with a pair of aviators and that necktie.


This firefighter costume sets off our sirens like no other! Firefighters in general are sexy because they save people and look hella hot while doing it.


Ahh lumberjacks—they’ve got that whole rustic woods thing goin’ on that we women always find irresistibly charming. If they can pull off the suspenders and wool hat, they’re definitely doing something right.


Guys like the gangster costume because they can dress up without really dressing up and it gives them a reason to wear a vest (seriously, dudes love vests). We like it because it shows off their bulging biceps in tight white t-shirts!

James Bond

The suit and bow tie costume could be seen as the easy way out, but there’s nothing we love more than a dashingly handsome guy in a tux sipping a martini at the bar (shaken, not stirred—duh). Black and white take the cake when men decide to channel James Bond, one of our sexiest movie crushes.


Brad Pitt was the first one to turn this costume from snooze fest to studly and we love any guy who can pull it off with the same amount of fierceness and strength! Occasionally we all need a little protection, and who better to fight for us than the guy with the sword?


Any guy who can fill out a Batman costume like a boss is devastatingly hot in our book. We love the mysterious mask that leaves only his mouth and eyes visible. For some reason, this superhero’s appeal is undeniable and we just can’t deny our soft spot for the endearing good guy vs. villain dynamic.
