While the best couples’ Halloween costumes are often catered towards straight couples, you can take things to the next level in 2022 with homoerotic Top Gun couples costume, which only requires you to purchase two of these Spooktacular Creations flight suits and matching aviators. Although the model is wearing this with a white t-shirt underneath, you can always go topless underneath and pull the zipper down a little bit to show more skin.

A comfy, low-maintenance look that involves an outlet tunic and an apron with prongs, this costume can be worn by anybody. We would make a joke about how a reviewer called the prongs floppy, but we’re above that. A chuckle-inducing two-for-one idea that’s ideal for more daring couples.

The Hulu show Pam and Tommy (and this iconic rock n’ roll couple generally) spawned some of the best couples’ Halloween costumes of 2022.

19. Unboxed Barbie and Ken Costume
MORE BARBIE & KEN

20. Cinderella & Prince Charming Costume
BEST FAIRYTALE PICK
If you don’t want to go with one of the best pop culture costumes for couples, a timeless fairytale choice that always does well is Cinderella and Prince Charming. This Storybook Princess look shortens the hemline for a slightly spicier rendition – pair with a bun wig for even more princess vibes. Disney prince and princess too heteronormative for your liking?

LAZIEST BARBIE & KEN
If your friends are forcing you to dress up and go to a costume party, this is one of the best bare minimum costumes for couples. Although it won’t turn you into a life-size doll, this is one of the best easy breezy costume ideas that 2022 has blessed us with. Just wear t-shirts that say who you are, and nobody will ever come up to you and ask. It’s brilliant! You can also combine with wigs and some preppy bottoms or accessories to up the ante.
23. Eleven and Demogorgon Costume
STRANGER THINGS PICK
Great for all kinds of couples (we personally find it funnier if a guy is wearing this Eleven dress) this is the ultimate set of couple’s Halloween costumes that’s an absolute essential for Stranger Things fans. The person wearing the Demogorgon costume can opt for a mask like this one and wear all white, but there are also more elaborate versions with attached bodysuits if you’re really looking to turn heads this spooky season.
