COUPLES COSTUMES & HALLOWEEN STYLES-STAY AWAY FROM BROKE!

Happy Pre-Halloween!                                                                                  

Can’t think of any halloween costume ideas for this year for you and your loved ones? You’re in a right place to start!

 

last minute halloween couples styles

More than 179 million Americans are planning to join in Halloween festivities, and spending is reaching a record high in survey history. This year, consumers are expected to spend $9.1 billion, up from $8.4 billion in 2016. Yes, over $9 billion on halloween!

Costumes will make up the largest portion roughly $3.4 billion. Followed by $2.7 billion on candy, $2.7 billion on decorations and last not least on $0.4 billion on halloween greeting cards.

Men plan to spend nearly $96 and women plan to spend average $77. Really? Only for celebrating one day, we are spending in average $173 for only for couple. If you have little ones in your household than that means more 😉

As a fashion enthusiast and former fashion designer, it remains very difficult for me to understand why someone would only purchase an outfit to wear once and can’t wear it twice.

Here are my style tips for a couple to dress as a His & Hers Halloween costume and not become broke to stay stylish!

  1. Wow. Thats a pretty detailed list of ensembles to try on. Very comprehensive indeed. Will be surely helpful when in a quandary. Which come to think of it happens more often that you’d think:)

    1. Welcome 🙂 I believe Halloween is more of easy fun way to celebrate rather than spending too much and fell broke 🙂 Happy Pre-Halloween!

  2. I LOVE that you included men’s options! Gonna have to drag my boyfriend to be Danny and Sandy with me!

  3. My husband and I went to a neighbor’s Halloween party last year and the costumes were nothing short of impressive. A few of my couple’s favorites? Alice + The Mad Hatter and Marge + Homer Simpson. x

  4. Love these collections, my take will be the “John Lennon & Yoko Ono”. It’s been a while we pay attention to Halloween costumes, but it will be fun wearing them again.

  5. Really like what you’ve suggested here, it’s so very classy and 100% re-usable. I always try to reuse my wardrobe no matter what, can’t believe these costs, so high!

  6. Wow! These are some wonderful things couple outfit ideas! I love the Amy and Sheldon. I took a not mental note of that and I also love breakfast at tiffanies.

    1. Thanks Surekha! My favorite is also breakfast at tiffanies. Personally love the movie as well how can we not love the classic movies right 🙂

  7. I love these ideas of couples Halloween costumes. I know a friend who does this and it’s adorable.
