As much as we love the idea of creating spot-on, elaborate costumes for Halloween, we don’t always have the time (or the dedication) to create exact replicas of our favorite characters—especially when you’ve got your S.O. to think about. Of course, just because you’re putting together a last-minute couples costume doesn’t mean it has to be boring or a cliché.

If we’re being honest, one of the best parts of dressing up for Halloween with your partner is the amount of Instagram opportunities you’ll have (because obviously). Whether you’re snapping an iconic pose from a movie or letting the costume speak for itself, we have no doubt that you’ll be racking up the likes come October 31.

Ahead, we’ve gathered some of the coolest pairs to channel this Halloween. The best part? They require minimal planning. Whether you’re going as an iconic duo like Barbie and Ken or as your favorite celebrity couple, these are costumes the two of you will actually want to wear.
