As much as we love all the spooky decor and dressing up in fun costumes, Halloween often comes with a lot of stress. Choosing the perfect costume—especially if you’re coordinating with someone else—is a high-stakes venture due to all the decision-making and creative efforts that typically go into it. But when you finally land on that just-right couple’s costume, you’ll be able to stroll into that Halloween party with confidence and your partner-in-crime by your side. 

Need some inspiration? We’ve come up with 22 fun and easy couples’ Halloween costumes that you can replicate with your significant other, best friend, child, or any other favorite person in your life. The options range from low-key makeup looks to iconic character duos and everything in between. Scroll through the options to find the couple’s costume that best speaks to your relationship!


1. Ariel and Prince Eric

We fell in love with this magical prince and princess duo all over again after the live-action version of The Little Mermaid hit theaters this summer. To dress up as Ariel and Prince Eric, all you’ll need is a classic mermaid tail skirt and shell top, plus a Victorian-style shirt and vest for the prince. Bonus points if your significant other is willing to re-create this drenched rescue scene.


2. Justin and Hailey Bieber

Sometimes, the best couples have totally different fashion vibes, and Justin and Hailey Bieber are proof of that. Re-create their iconic (and hilarious) style mismatch from this year’s Rhode launch party with a red strapless dress and strappy red heels, and have your partner channel Justin’s laid-back vibe with a gray zip-up hoodie and yellow Crocs. 


3. Barbie and Ken

You knew this one was coming: The most iconic couples’ Halloween costume of 2023 will be none other than Barbie and Ken. Channel Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling’s fabulous matching skater outfits with some bright neon biker shorts, a neon green fanny pack, and matching pink visors. And be sure to wave “Hi, Barbie!” to every other Barbie and Ken you spot this Halloween.


4. Shiv and Tom from Succession

Regardless of what you thought of the Succession series finale this year, we can all agree that while Tom and Shiv may not exactly be relationship goals, this power couple does have impeccable style. Plus, this costume likely includes items you and your partner already have in your wardrobe—or will actually wear IRL long after Halloween is over. 


5. Jack and Rose from Titanic

Could any couple’s costume be more classic than Jack and Rose from Titanic? Absolutely not. This old-school costume is pretty easy to put together, too. A button-up shirt and suspenders are must-haves for Jack. For Rose, you’ll need a long dress, a red wig with curls (if you don’t already have gorgeous locks like hers), and a heart-shaped blue necklace. Extra style points will be granted if you show up to the Halloween party with a door!


6. Henry and Alex from Red, White & Royal Blue

We all wish that international politics were actually as adorable and heartwarming as Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue, so why not pretend for a night that they are? To dress up as Alex and Henry, you’ll each need a suit and tie and some USA or Great Britain-themed accessories. Here’s to a Halloween as dreamy as this movie.


7. Gomez and Morticia Addams

Now that we all know the fascinating backstory of Gomez and Morticia Addams’ relationship from Wednesday, they certainly make for a fun couple’s costume. For Gomez, you’ll need a pinstripe blazer and pants, a fake mustache, and a fake “Thing” hand. For Morticia, find a long-sleeved black maxi dress with a slit (that you could also add one yourself), a long black wig, some dark eyeshadow, and bold lipstick. There are endless ways to play around with her character by adding various props as well.


8. Spiderman and Spiderwoman

Can’t stop thinking about the cliffhanger in Across the Spiderverse even though you saw it months ago? Same. If you’re as caught up on the will-they-won’t-they of Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy as I am, replicate that same electric energy with your partner with this simple (and comfortable) costume idea. All you need are some matching hoodies and spider masks, and you’re ready to gallivant across the city superhero-style.


9. Gatsby and Daisy

If you’re looking to take the classic flapper Halloween costume up a notch, look no further than the most iconic 1920s couple that never was: Gatsby and Daisy. Whether you want to re-create the looks from Baz Luhrman’s iconic The Great Gatsby movie from 2013, emulate an earlier version of the film, or base your costume purely on the original Fitzgerald book, you can’t go wrong. To replicate the 2013 film, you’ll need a white suit, a purple flapper dress, and all the 1920s-inspired accessories. 


10. Roy Kent and Keeley Jones from Ted Lasso

In spite of myself, I still believe that Roy Kent and Keeley Jones make the perfect couple, so we had to add this no-brainer couple’s costume to this list. With an AFC Richmond jersey and a fluffy pink coat, you’re bound to be the best-dressed couple at the party. Sexy accents are optional but encouraged.


11. Shaggy and Scooby-Doo

You can wear this costume as a couple, with friends, with your pooch—the list goes on. For Shaggy, you just need a solid green T-shirt with brown pants. For Scooby, you could go all-out with a whole Scooby-Doo suit, but if you want to keep it more low-key, we recommend a brown dress with simple brown accessories. Then add some socks, a dog-ear headband, a green choker necklace, and some simple face paint!


12. Meredith Grey and Cristina Yang from Grey’s Anatomy

Get ready to wholeheartedly dance the night away with your bestie in scrubs (with possibly some tequila involved—IYKYK). A super inexpensive option is to go to your local thrift shop to find some matching blue scrubs, but they are also easily available online. Have fun accessorizing with fake beepers, name tags, stethoscopes, or some surgical masks, and you’re good to go!


13. Joyce and Hopper from Stranger Things

We love this will-they-or-won’t-they pair, and this is one of those couples’ Halloween costumes that can easily be achieved with stuff you already have hidden in your wardrobe. To get Joyce’s look, all you need is a cardigan and any striped T-shirt, and for Hopper, you’ll need a faux sheriff’s uniform—and, of course, a big ol’ fake mustache. 


14. Wizard of Oz

Pick any of the iconic characters from The Wizard of Oz, and dress up with your significant other, friend group, or dog! Of course, you can totally dress as Dorothy in a cute blue gingham dress and sparkly red shoes, but we also love the idea of wearing sparkly silver head-to-toe as the Tin Man. If you’re looking for an easier outfit, dress as Scarecrow by wearing some overalls and a flannel, and finish off your costume with face paint.


15. John B and Sarah from Outer Banks

If you live somewhere warm and can wear shorts and a crop top at the end of October, this Outer Banks couple’s costume is for you. You and your significant other should already have everything you need in your closet for this badass couple’s costume: jean shorts, tank tops, sneakers, and backpacks. Just make sure you dirty everything up a little—including yourself—and add John B’s bandana as the final touch.


16. Mike and Sulley from Monsters, Inc.

Head to the Scare Floor this Halloween and dress like the characters in Monsters, Inc. This light-hearted costume is fun to do with your significant other or with a group of friends. In addition to Mike and Sulley, someone can dress up as Boo, which is a cute idea if you have a little one! Or you can tap additional friends to dress up as characters from the Scare Team and Monsters University.


17. Andie and Duckie from Pretty in Pink

Source: IMDb

We’d be remiss not to include this adorable pair from the cult classic Pretty in Pink. It makes a great friend or couple’s costume that’s super easy to replicate! For Andie, you just need a short, red-haired wig and a flowy pink dress. For Duckie, grab a simple fedora, bolo tie, and some layered sweaters with a blazer.

18. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are one of the most easily recognizable celebrity couples these days. Maybe it’s their constant cute posts together or their in-sync rocker vibe, but regardless, this is one of those couples’ Halloween costumes that most people will be able to spot from a mile away. Bonus points if the Travis of your pair rocks real tattoos instead of fake ones. 


19. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell

Source: IMDb

Throw it back to childhood and dress up like Tinkerbell and Peter Pan this year. You can find everything you need for this costume online, but we always think a DIY version is better. Peter Pan needs a green shirt, a belt, a hat, and brown shoes—all of which you can get together with the help of retailers like Target and Amazon. Tinkerbell’s costume requires a little more magic and sparkle: a wand, sparkly tights, a green dress, ballet flats, and wings.


20. Sam and Suzy from Moonrise Kingdom

If your significant other is a Wes Anderson fan, that’s an immediate green flag. And if they’re willing to re-create Sam and Suzy’s look from Moonrise Kingdom with you? Now that’s true love. For Sam, get a boy scout uniform and a raccoon hat, and for Suzy, a pink collared shirt and knee-high white socks are an easy way to replicate this classic movie. 


21. Brittany and Santana from Glee

If Glee is your go-to comfort show, channel the adorable WLW duo of Brittany and Santana for your couple’s costume this year. All you have to do is pick up some WMHS cheerleader uniforms, plus some cheerleader accessories like hair bows, ankle socks, and pom-poms.


22. The Flintstones

Another easy-to-replicate and iconic couple’s costume: Fred and Wilma Flintstone. Ironically, this stone-age couple ended up being quite timeless, and the same is true for this costume. To achieve Wilma’s look, you could opt for a red wig to match the cartoon or just toss your hair up in a top knot. Then wear a one-shoulder dress and a chunky white statement necklace to round out the look. For Fred, a branded costume is an easy pick.
