We have had a huge surge in requests for couples costume ideas for Valentine's Day parties. And yes, for some, Valentine's Day is yet another excuse for wearing cute and sexy costumes!
Party Idea Pros has made searching for the perfect couple’s costume easy. We have gathered together a large selection to the best matched pairs available — some serious, some formal, some sexy, and some downright silly – and organized them into easy to follow categories.
Be sure to also check out more Party Idea Pros costume ideas.
Check back often – we find new costumes to add just about every day!
We have broken down this post into the following categories:
- Couples Costumes
Costumes that work for most people with many also available in plus sizes. Click on the links or pictures for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site. Some of the couples costumes in this category range from King Kong and Anne Darrow to Adam and Eve to Sugar Daddy and his Sugar Baby (my favorite!)
- Superhero and Supervillain
Any combination will work!
- Formal Costumes
This style costume works for any event but is pretty much your only option if you are attending a formal event or wedding. Yes, this year there seem to be quite a few of you who have opted for a festive Halloween wedding but prefer your guests maintain the formality typically associated with a wedding.
- Cute for her. Wearable for him.
These couple costume ideas are designed around the guy who is uncomfortable wearing costumes. They are easy to wear and not too complicated or fussy.
- Sexy for her. Sexy for him.
No further explanation needed.
- Silly costumes
Just for the fun of it.
- Simple. Cheap.
And finally, we have included a section for those of you who are begrudgingly being dragged to a couples costume party but would prefer not to dress up and certainly have no desire to spend a lot of money.
- Same Sex Couples / Buddies / Duos
We want to encourage all of you to enjoy the search. Choosing your costume and getting ready for the big night is at least half of the fun! We will continue to add new couples costumes as they arrive in the stores, so keep checking back! We have also made the pictures a little larger than usual so you can pretty much see what the costumes look like without clicking back and forth so much.

Ripped from the Headlines
The United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality for all. At last, #LoveWins.
Between Burning Man and Coachella, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. And these festivals are quite the spectacle, with people dressing up in costumes to beat the summer heat while looking fashionably outrageous. Burning Man’s fashion was even featured in an article in the New York Times! We love the idea of incorporating festival fashion into a Halloween costume

Cute for her. Wearable for him.
Butterfly & Butterfly Catcher
I like the butterfly catcher idea so much did a bit of research and basically found no off the rack costumes except this bushman costume in very limited sizes
So even better — create your own butterfly catcher costume. Have your man wear a khaki shirt and/or safari vest, khaki shorts, safari, bushman hat or boonie hat, hiking boots, and carry a butterfly net. If you don't care for this butterfly costume, there are lots more options to choose from!
We are obsessed with these sexy for her, easy for him couples flamingo costumes! Thank you Izzy for the inspiration!

The Couple that Plays Together, Stays Together
For this look any matching soccer uniforms will work. For her — just roll the sleeves and tie the shirt so it is shorter or better yet, cut the both the length and the sleeves with pinking sheers.
The Playboy Club
Cute for Her, T-Shirts for Him
If you are encountering extreme resistance, pair just about any female costume with a matching t-shirt or hoody for him.
A few examples
Jack & Coke Couples Costumes
Sexy for her. Sexy for him.
His & Her Board Game Costumes
Costumes. Simple. Cheap.
Graffiti Costumes …
A simple white unisex t-shirt worn either with jeans or with white shorts or sweatpants work as a simple fashion forward costume. Just take fabric markers or even cans of spray paint (the shirts will be a little stiff if you spray them) and “tag” the shirts with just about anything you like.
Not into DIY? Try these graffiti party inspired t-shirts, shoes, ties
