1. Grease costume: Sandy and Danny

Can you think of a more iconic couple than Sandy and Danny from Grease? The film, set in the '50s, is chock-full of classic looks such as the Pink Ladies and T-Birds jackets, but our favorite look comes from the final scene, which finds Sandy decked out in leather head-to-toe.

2. Harry Potter costume

We solemnly swear we're up to no good. As loyal Potterheads, we'll take any chance to slip into Hogwarts robes and pretend we have magical powers. Choose a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin getup and embody one of your favorite witches or wizards.

4. Flintstones costume: Fred and Wilma

With this couples Halloween costume, we're throwing it way back to the beloved '60s sitcom, The Flintstones. Take a step back in time to the stone age and embody the famous show's lead characters Fred and Wilma Flintstone. The Kardashian-West family famously dressed as the entire family in 2019.

5. Dirty Dancing costume: Johnny and Baby

Nobody puts Baby in a corner. Play "Time of My Life" on repeat all night long and—if you're brave enough—attempt the famous lift scene from Dirty Dancing. People will be quoting lines from the 1987 movie to you all night long (and you'll have plenty of great Instagram captions at the ready).

Who knew scrolling through emojis could offer you a great costume idea? Dress as the emoji couple holding hands by simply slipping into a pink dress and blue T-shirt paired with khakis. The best part of this is that you'll actually wear your costume on a regular day.
