2016 Movie-Inspired Couples Costume Ideas That Are Perfect For You & Your Partner-In-Crime

Halloween may be more than a month away but it's never too early to start thinking about what your elaborate, on-point Halloween costume will be. Whether you're flying solo, hanging with bae, or in a squad, the best places to find costume inspo are from the movies of 2016 everyone loved to watch. And, if you plan on teaming up with your significant other or best friend and you're looking for the best couples costume inspiration, you're in luck. The summer flicks of 2016 have already laid the perfect foundation for a bevy of couples costumes that will leave everyone else you meet on Halloween green with envy.

Want to go for a comic book-inspired duo? Maybe you want to draw on some Pixar-inspired looks? There's literally zero shortage when you put your mind to it. Any of these couples costumes will not only be comfortable for a night of partying, trick-or-treating (or both), but they'll also look realistic AF. Bonus: Many of these costumes can be turned into gender-neutral styles and you can keep them as intricate or comfortable as your personal style requires. Also, make sure to invest in a good Halloween make-up kit (like this basic make-up kit from Target for $10.00) so that you can experiment without wasting your actual make-up.

So, are you ready to see all the possibilities for couples costumes?
