Swifties, this one is for you! Get literal with the “Cruel Summer” singer’s lyrics with one of you dressing as Taylor Swift and the other as “Karma” to embody the line “karma is my boyfriend.” The purple dress above is similar to the singer’s Eras Tour outfit featuring a fringe and sparkly design you can’t help but want to twirl in.
Finish the couple’s costume with a simple black T-shirt made from a 100% cotton for added comfort and the word “Karma” in all caps.
Dynamic duos are never the wrong answer, and what better pair than Fred Flinstone and Barney Rubble? For the one who chooses Fred, the costume comes with the spotted one-piece complete with his iconic blue tie. You can pair it with sandals to complete the look, or sneakers if you prefer a closed-toe shoe.
Complete the pair with Barney’s classic look featuring a brown one-piece made from a soft polyester material. An inflatable club is also included to transport you right back to the Stone Age.
If you and your other half are always sharing earbuds or are listening to music, this costume is essential. Since you two are such close buds, why not dress up as wireless earbuds? The costume is not only under $30, but comes with two headpieces you can throw on over coordinated matching ‘fits.
Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn are another timeless couple’s costume that style-forward couples won’t want to skip over. The Poison Ivy look comes with a green dress that has an adjustable skirt you can change the length of, green shoe covers and a mesh overlay.
Bring the chaos in this Harley Quinn costume, which is inspired by her look from the movie Suicide Squad. Included is a red and white top that reads “Daddy’s Lil Monster,” and red and blue sparkly shorts you can pair with fishnet tights or wear alone.
Looking to go the pop-culture route? Consider one of social media’s favorite couples: Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. To dress as the reality star, all you need is a black minidress like the ruched one above and a pair of oversized black sunglasses that scream chic.
Barker’s look boasts rocker, which means you’ll want to snag a pair of techwear pants (we suggest the ones pictured above, which are 60% off). Don’t forget the rock star’s go-to slouchy beanie and some temporary tattoos to cover your body.
For something spooky yet not gory, the guards from the popular show Squid Game is almost a no-brainer. Each costume comes with a red jumpsuit and a black face mask with a triangle symbol, just like the ones from the show.
