This post will show you 25 cute couple outfits for Halloween.
Calling all couples, dynamic duos, and perfect pairs looking for a cute, clever couple’s Halloween costume: this is the post for you!
With Halloween right around the corner, now is the time to plan a cute couple outfit for Halloween that will set you apart from the crowd and show that you’re a set (be it baes or besties).
Read on for 25 cute couple’s Halloween costumes that are relevant for 2022 (many of which you can DIY)!
1. Barbie and Ken
With Barbiecore trending and the highly anticipated live-action Barbie movie (starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling) coming out next year, dressing up as Barbie and Ken for Halloween feels as relevant as ever.
The iconic doll couple is all about bright, coordinated looks, including some ’80s roller-skating outfits that have been spotted in photos from the set of the upcoming film (and look similar to the ones above).
You can also go for a more simple, modern-day approach by wearing a pink mini dress and girly makeup inspired by Barbie, and have your Ken wear a suit. Consider also wearing name tags to make your costumes that much more obvious.
2. The Little Mermaid’s Ariel and Sebastian
Ariel and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid are a classic choice, but why not change things up and go as Ariel and Sebastian, instead?
This “Under the Sea”-inspired couples costume features a funny (and comfy) lobster onesie and a cute mermaid outfit complete with a mermaid tail skirt and crown headband.
3. Top Gun Pilots
There’s a good chance that your boo will actually be stoked for this couple’s costume, since Top Gun: Maverick was a box-office hit (and inspired the mustache facial hair trend among dudes this summer).
Look the part of naval aviator pilots by wearing army green jumpsuits, lace-up boots, and aviator sunglasses (of course). Alternatively, you could rock bomber jackets (which happen to be on trend this season) or a flight dress for a girlier look.
4. Elvis and Priscilla Presley
Have fun this Halloween wearing ’60s and ’70s-inspired clothing inspired by the iconic couple that was Elvis and Priscilla Presley. With this year’s Elvis movie release, this costume feels especially relevant.
You can either go the more understated route like Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi did above, or go full out with Elvis’s signature white jumpsuit.
5. Mr. & Mrs. Smith
You can’t go wrong with this classic fictional couple that is equally debonair as they are dangerous.
There are two recognizable outfit combos you can wear when dressing like Mr. & Mrs. Smith. The first is their fancier look, which involves a suit for Mr. Smith and a long black dress and heels for Mrs. Smith (as seen in the movie poster). The second is their white disheveled “pajamas” look, in which Mrs. Smith wears a white button-down shirt and red rain boots, while Mr. Smith wears a white t-shirt and white boxers.
Regardless of which option you go for, be sure to “accessorize” your outfits with toy weapons, since you’re dressing up as assassins, after all.
6. Morticia and Gomez Addams
They’re creepy and they’re kooky. Mysterious and spooky… Morticia and Gomez Addams of The Addams Family are total Halloween couple goals!
For Morticia’s look, go with a long black dress, dark eye makeup, and red lipstick, along with long, straight black hair (wear a wig if needed). Gomez often wore a double-breasted pinstripe suit, had slicked-back hair, and his signature thin mustache.
7. Batman and Catwoman
Channel your inner superheroes by dressing as Batman and Catwoman, also known as “The Bat and The Cat.”
Your Batman can either wear a costume or keep it simple with a Batman t-shirt and a mask. You can either wear a Catwoman costume or look in your own wardrobe for some faux leather leggings, a faux leather top, and black knee-high boots, adding in a mask.
8. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
While there are plenty of modern-day celebrity couples you could dress as for Halloween, few are as instantly recognizable as Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, who have a shared sense of rocker style that is always making headlines.
To dress like the pop culture pair, wear items like band tees, fishnet tights, platform boots, choker necklaces, and anything studded. Travis often wears a beanie hat and chain necklaces — be sure to carry some drumsticks to nail his vibe.
9. Megan Fox and MGK
Megan Fox and MGK are another recognizable rocker couple with an over-the-top fashion sense that would be fun to channel on Halloween.
If you’re dressing as Megan, you’ll want to embrace your sexy side with a short hemline or tight-fitting outfit featuring lace-up detailing or cut-outs, plus some sky-high heels. MGK’s modern-day rockstar style is flamboyant, often incorporating sequins, studs, hot pink, and plenty of silver jewelry.
10. Bridgerton Couples
Give Lady Whistedown something to write about by dressing as one of your favorite Bridgerton couples. Whether you dress as Kate and Anthony or Daphne and Simon, you’ll want to wear clothing inspired by the Regency era that would be fit for an elegant ball; think an empire-waist gown with long satin gloves and suit fit for a Duke.
11. Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein
Want to go for a ghoulish vibe this Halloween? You can’t go wrong with Frankenstein and his bride, a monster couple for the ages.
This couple’s costume is a chance to have fun playing around with makeup since the goal is to look monstrous! Frankenstein is known for his green skin, sunken black eyes, and bolts sticking out of his neck, while his bride has an eerily pale white face with prominent stitches and black lips. You can wear a white bridal-inspired dress, while Frankenstein can simply wear black pants and a black top or suit jacket.
12. Riverdale Couples
Riverdale, based on Archie Comics, features super recognizable couples that would make for perfect Halloween costumes, and with the many shifting relationships throughout the show’s seasons, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. (This would also be a great group costume that you could do with other couples or friends).
Some of the show’s most recognizable couples include:
- Archie Andrews and Veronica Lodge; Archie and Betty Cooper
- Jughead Jones and Betty; Jughead and Tabitha Tate
- Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz
When dressing as these characters, hair color plays a big part in being able to identify them, so you may want to pick a character with a hair color similar to your own or get a wig.
13. Edward Scissorhands and Kim
Edward Scissorhands, the unlikely love story between Edward, a humanoid with scissors for hands, and Kim, a teenage girl who sees Edward for the sweet, gentle being he is, is a timeless Halloween couple’s costume.
If you’re dressing up as Kim, you’ll want to wear a white off-the-shoulder dress and wear your hair in a half-up half-down style. Edward’s costume requires a bit more—detail, shall we say?—with fake scissor blade hand gloves and a gothic faux leather top and pants with buckle detailing, plus unruly black hair and white face makeup.
14. Beetlejuice and Lydia
Beetlejuice and Lydia are another iconic movie duo with Halloween written all over them.
If you choose this costume, you’ll want to go all out to embody the wacky, otherworldly aesthetic of the film: Beetlejuice just simply wouldn’t be Beetlejuice without his painted white face and crazy green hair. Similarly, Lydia needs her spikey black hair, gothic makeup, and iconic red wedding dress to be recognizable.
15. Loofah and Soap
Do you two go together like a loofah and a bar of soap? Well, now you can. This funny couple’s costume is sure to get a laugh out of your friends, and even includes decorative stickers and bubble balloons to make the costume that much more thought-out.
16. Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonte
Channel Old Hollywood by portraying Dorothy Dandrige, the first Black woman to be nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award, and her frequent co-star Harry Belafonte.
Winnie Harlow and Kyle Kuzma dressed as the duo in their 1954 musical film Carmen Jones, with Kyle wearing a retro Army costume and Winnie a figure-hugging pencil skirt, off-the-shoulder top, and ankle-strap heels.
17. Mario and Luigi
Arguably the most famous gaming duo of all time, Mario and Luigi are a legendary pair with similar yet distinctive outfits. Both with mustaches and denim overalls, Mario wears a red t-shirt and hat, while Luigi wears a green t-shirt and hat.
This costume can also easily be DIY-ed by wearing plain red and green t-shirts and baseball hats, along with jeans or overalls.
18. Magician and Rabbit
Get magical this Halloween by going as one of the most iconic magic tricks of all time: a magician “pulling” a rabbit out of his (or her) hat.
You can easily put this costume together quickly by wearing your own clothing and adding in a few extra details like a top hat, a wand, bunny ears, and a bunny tail (the bunny should wear all white and the magician should wear a suit or a tuxedo t-shirt).
19. Rockstars (David Bowie and Freddie Mercury)
If modern-day rockers aren’t your jam, go the classic route by channeling rockstars like David Bowie and Freddie Mercury like Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams did.
To dress as Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen, wear a simple white tank top, a black studded cuff around your arm, and don’t forget his signature mustache.
David Bowie has many iconic looks you can choose from; Sarah Hyland opted for his Aladdin Sane album cover look, which is arguably his most recognizable, with his fiery red hair and lightning bolt face makeup.
20. Where’s Waldo and Wenda
Where’s Waldo and Wenda? These beloved characters make for a great couple’s Halloween costume with their signature red and white striped tops, jeans, beanie hats, and round glasses. Whether you recreate their looks with items from your closet or opt to buy the costumes with everything included, you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd.
21. Shadow and Bone‘s Alina Starkov and General Kirigan
Are you fans of fantasy? If so, try dressing up as Alina Starkov and General Kirigan a.k.a. The Darkling from Netflix’s Shadow and Bone.
Each with magical abilities and an attraction towards each other, this duo’s outfits can be recreated using regular clothing; see our guide here.
22. Beyoncé and Jay-Z
The ultimate power couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z are talent forces to be reckoned with. And though they have many noteworthy looks you could emulate on Halloween, none are quite as epic as their coordinating pink and blue suits from their music video for “Apesh*t;” even Ciara and Russel Wilson recreated the look for Halloween a few years back.
The best part about dressing like Beyoncé? You’ll totally want to wear your pink satin suit on other occasions, not just as a costume on Halloween.
23. Tinkerbell and Peter Pan
Peter Pan and his sassy sidekick Tinkerbell from Disney’s Peter Pan make for a super cute couple’s Halloween costume that you can DIY. IDK about you, but dressing up as a fairy seems fabulous to me!
24. A Deer and a Hunter
Oh, deer! This DIY couple’s costume would be especially easy if you or your significant other already own hunting gear like clothing with a hunting camouflage print.
One of you will dress as the hunter in standard hunter’s clothing, while the other will dress as a deer by wearing brown clothing, fake antlers, and deer-inspired makeup (check out the tutorial above).
25. Harley Quinn and Joker
This costume continues to be ultra-popular, probably because it’s just plain fun to wear for both participants! Both with over-the-top outfits, Harley Quinn and her (on-and-off again) boyfriend the Joker from DC Comics and The Suicide Squad movie are immediately recognizable characters you’ll have a blast portraying on Halloween.
