Not-So-Basic Couple Costumes For You and Your S.O. to Wear This Halloween

If you’re anything like us, you cannot believe that Halloween is right around the corner and probably even forgot to buy a costume (don’t beat yourself up, neither did we!). Luckily, though, there are so many costumes to choose from. However, the costumes that are premade in the store have a tendency to feel dry and oh-so-boring. So if you’re looking to shake things up for you and your significant other this year, then you’ve come to the right place. From classics to so-current-it-hurts costumes, we’ve compiled some of the best couple costumes to pull off this Halloween season.

While some people are still not over the split between The Weeknd and Bella Hadid, it’s time to move on because there’s a new power couple and they are hotter than ever. Longtime pop icon Selena Gomez and R&B artist The Weeknd are making waves as one of this year’s most sought-after power couples, making them a perfect costume to wear this Halloween. All you need is a mic, a diva-esque outfit, and a huge leather jacket.

Thelma and Louise is unarguably a classic film about girl power. So this Halloween, why don’t you and your S.O. (or BFF) dress up as some of the most badass women to have ever graced the silver screen. To pull off the look, grab some mom jeans, bandanas, and a muscle tee. Throw in a little sassy ‘tude, and you’re all set.

Beyonce and Jay Z will never go out of style (obviously). And because they’ll never stop being a pillar of popular culture, they’re always a fantastic option for you and your boo to dress up as. Jay Z requires nothing more than a Brooklyn Nets hat and Beyonce can easily be done in a bodysuit and heels, and just like that, your costume is complete!

No couple will ever be as iconic and as controversial as cult classic favorites Khaleesi and Jon Snow. While the tension of waiting for Jon to bend the knee was beyond painful, it all came to fruition in the end and was totally worth it. What makes it even better? The dramatic irony! Grab a long blonde wig, toss on some furs, and exude sexual tension all night — everyone will know exactly who you are.

While most of us would probably prefer Pennywise to stay in the sewer, the timeliness of this movie release means we’ll be seeing him everywhere. To make the whole experience a little less terrifying, however, dress up as a child with the red balloon and hold hands with your Pennywise all night. The added element will truly separate Pennywise and the Child from any other clown costumes you’ll see Halloween night.

Poussey and Soso are by far one of the most beloved Netflix couples we’ve ever had the blessing to witness. The two loved each other unconditionally, and let’s be real, is anyone actually over the end of season four? (I’m NOT!) Either way, recreating their adorable love is the perfect costume, and it involves wearing sweatpants all night, which is definitely an added bonus.

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg’s friendship is one for the ages. Maybe it’s because of their timeless rapport on Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, or maybe it’s because Martha’s admitted to Snoop smoking her out, but either way, the unlikely pair makes a dope duo and a hilarious costume.

Karl and his cat Choupette are a staple duo in the fashion industry, so why not attempt it with your boo? Tell your SO to spray his hair gray and throw on some sunglasses while you put on a pair of cat ears for an easy (yet totally fashionable) costume. (PS, this is another way to amp up the “basic” cat costume. You’re welcome.)

With Kylie’s most recent (and still not totally confirmed??) pregnancy rumor, costumes such as “Reality Star in the Making” are already popping up everywhere, featuring a rip off of one of Kylie’s dresses with a pregnant belly attached. Whether you’re buying the store option or doing it yourself, the reference will definitely be easy to get. To pull off Travis, grab some hyped up streetwear, throw on some Rodeo merch, and blast Pray 4 Love all night.

Now if you’re really looking to horrify people this Halloween, this costume will definitely do the job. Even more so, there are so many combos that can be used. Trump and Pence are a given, but Trump and Huckabee, or even Pence and a Handmaid’s Tale woman would be just as, if not more, horrifying. In the end, no matter what duo you decide to go as, nothing will be scarier than the real-life versions of each.
