What to Wear to the Thirteenth Annual Speedo Santa Run

Stripping down to your skivvies is a daunting dare come December, but for the last twelve years, Bostonians have run through the Back Bay jingling more than just bells for the benefit of local children's charities. If you'll be braving Boylston Street on Saturday, December 8, for the Speedo Santa Run, we recommend checking out these wardrobe options ranging from Mrs. Claus in the boudoir to sporty Santa (mistletoe and reindeer horns not included).

Get a lot of mileage from several of these versatile pieces, including undies from Forty Winks, boots from Urban Outfitters, and a scarf from North River Outfitter. This year's donations go to Play Ball Foundation, which encourages teamwork, communication, and discipline through sports.
