Dressing up with your SO is one of the best things about Halloween. But those couples' costumes can get so involved and complicated in a hurry. That's why these lazy Halloween 2018 costume ideas for couples are so perfect. They're still clever and fun enough to fit the spirit of the holiday without taking up too much of your time.
Whether you're looking for some simple store-bought costumes or ideas you can pull from your own closet, these ensembles are perfect for you and your boo. Some are legitimately just funny t-shirts, which is about as easy and laid-back as Halloween costumes can get. And even the actual costumes just pop over whatever clothes you're already wearing, so they're no big deal, either. This can be the chillest Halloween you've ever had, and for plenty of couples, that's the absolute best way to celebrate the holiday this year.
So let somebody else take on the super elaborate costumes and movie-ready makeup applications. These sweet and simple pairs will give you more time to enjoy watching scary movies, eating candy, and generally chilling this October 31. But don't worry, because your awesome personalities will still make you and your SO the life of the party.
1. King & Queen Cards
2. YouTube Personalities
There's so much you can do with this theme. Maybe one person is the star and the other is responsible for filming. Or maybe you both "host" a channel all night. Dress a little flashy, and scream at everyone to "like and subscribe!" all night.
4. Tiny House & Homeowner
One person "wears" a large cardboard box that's painted to look like a tiny house. The other person is the proud homeowner who gives everyone a tour of the compact home.
6. Party Like It's 2008
Break out the bubble hemmed skirts, shutter shades, and whatever else was trendy 10 years ago, as noted in Buzzfeed. (It's OK, I still have a few giant belts stashed away, too.) Make a playlist with "Low", "Just Dance", and other jams from the era. You're guaranteed to make the adults at the party feel old and weird, which is half the fun.
7. Netflix & Chill Shirts
8. Unlock My Heart Couples' Costume
9. Salt & Pepper Hoodies
10. 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette' Contestants
OK, this one is seriously genius. Grab your most sequined dress, have your SO break out the formalwear, and pick up a dozen fake roses to dress as contestants on The Bachelor, as suggested in Good Housekeeping. Plus, you get to make other people accept the roses from you all night.
11. Emo Kids
Bust out the black eyeliner and hair gel, then wear some black and red together. If one or both of you still has a My Chemical Romance t-shirt hanging around, by all means wear it. Maintain character all night.
