Some couples love to dress alike every Halloween — and they need a wide variety of choices. Some prefer trendy costumes, while others like to stick to the classic ideas. Let’s look at some of the popular classic ideas for couple costumes:
Pirates and sexy swashbucklers make a good idea for couples costumes. There’s such a wide spectrum of possibilities. You can go basic or accessorize to the hilt, depending on what look you want to reflect.
The 1920s flappers and gangsters are really popular for couples. It’s a sexy powerhouse duo and they come in regular or plus sized for the men and women. You can choose the color and look that you like best and accessorize from there.
Another decade of 1950s sock hop characters is always fun. You can dress like Sandy and Danny from the movie Grease, or just create your own look from the 50s, complete with poodle skirts and leather jackets.
Cowboys and cowgirls are a good idea for couples costumes. You can find the complete outfits, or build them from scratch. Jeans, fringe jackets, checkered tops and leather chaps with a cow print can complete the look — all topped with a cowboy hat for each of you.
Movie costumes like Austin Powers or Gone with the Wind are always popular for couples. They’re classic because they’ve been around a long time. The Southern belle look with Rhett Butler by your side will impress everyone.
Native American Indians are depicted in some wonderful Halloween costumes. The outfits themselves are created with fringe dresses, chokers and boot tops, but you can also accessorize with beaded chest plates and feather headbands to complete the look.
Ninjas come in both male and female costumes, and this is a hot look if you’re a fan of shows like Kill Bill — or the culture in general. The female’s costume will be fancier — a kimono short dress, in many cases, while the man’s will be head to toe covering, with pants and gloves. Don’t forget the weapons to accessorize with!
Geisha and samurai warriors are another popular Asian look for couples wanting to dress alike for Halloween. The Geisha can be a fully clothes, beautiful ensemble or a short shirt kimono with obi. The warrior is extravagant with helmet, jumpsuit and armor.
Mermaid and diver costumes are a classic cute outfit for couples. You can dress in one of many beautiful mermaid costumes, and your husband can be the diver who finds you under the sea!
