Couple Costumes for Valentine’s Day 2021

Couples Costumes for Valentine's Day 2021

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. And while couple costumes are usually the stuff of Halloween parties, 2021 is a little different. A packed restaurant and a late night of dancing aren’t exactly a good idea.

And that’s what makes a couples costumes a Valentine’s must-have, especially one in your style. They bring a little extra fun to the day without breaking the bank or taking you out into the crowds. And who knows, you might just have so much fun that they become an annual tradition!

Classic Looks


Scarlet and Herb Overkill

If you and your partner are snappy dressers, consider Scarlet Overkill and her inventor husband Herb from the Minions movie. (And if you’re feeling something a little sillier, the Minions are always an option!)

The Lovebirds

Leilani and Jibran from The Lovebirds

Date nights can get a little wild, just ask Leilani and Jibran. Of course yours might be a little calmer if you celebrate at home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t adopt their stylish looks!

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

The series has been a smash hit from its first movie and keeps pulling fans in as they root for Lara Jean to find true love. Best of all? There are a bunch of costumes you and your partner can choose from!

Historical Styles


Hamilton and Schuyler Sisters

Are you and your partner more into the fashion of times gone by? There’s options for you too! It might not be the most romantic story out there but there’s no denying the appeal of Hamilton. Gorgeous dresses and great music make it a perfect classic to draw some inspiration from, whether a Schuyler sister or the man himself, Alexander Hamilton.


Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice is one of Jane Austen’s most beloved novels. And as its many film adaptations prove, that is in no small part because it is an enduring love story perfect for a Valentine’s cosplay date. Elizabeth’s costumes are the stuff of Regency dreams (as are Emma’s) and gentlemen can copy Darcy’s look by taking a page from Emma’s Mr. Knightley.



Sweeping drama, roguish men, and a love that spans the ages between Claire and Jamie Fraser. What more can you ask for on Valentine’s Day? Gorgeous costumes, for one. Good thing Outlander has all of that and more!
