7 Great Halloween Costumes for Couples

10.26.2016 WRITTEN BY Christopher Everett Just for Fun, T+P Blog Central, What to Wear

What is it about wearing a Halloween costume that almost guarantees a fun time—especially when done with a loved one? But coming up with couple costumes you and your mate agree on can sometimes be a challenge.

Here at Tog + Porter, we like to think of costumes as personal statements. It’s a way of saying—this is not an ordinary night, we’re carving out time to celebrate and not take ourselves too seriously. Costumes, which are celebrated most during Halloween, can be an excellent way to bring yourself to the present moment.

Here are our top seven costumes for 2016:

Gatsby and Daisy

We realize the story doesn’t end well for this couple, but there’s no refuting the fact that this wealthy couple from the 1920’s always makes for stunning costumes.

Peggy Carter and Captain America

Nothing is better than a patriotic couple. If you enjoy Marvel’s characters, this is a charming way to show it this Halloween. You might even a couple of these items around your house.

Lois Lane and Clark Kent

Lois Lane and Superman will never get old. This is a pretty easy costume to throw together if you’re running short on time. If you’re concerned people won’t recognize you as Lois Lane—bring a spiral notebook labeled “Daily Planet.” This will help people connect the dots.

Khal Drogo and Khaleesi from”Game of Thrones

Some people may already have the “look” that fits for this couple’s costume, but if not, grab some wigs! Hair color is an essential part of every Game of Thrones’ character. The rest of the costume can easily be made with stuff already in your closet.


Michael Phelps & his fiance Nicole

If you’re a new mom or still hyped from the Olympics, think about dressing up as gold-medalist Michael Phelps and his fiancé, Nicole. Don’t forget infant headphones for the little one.
