One of the best parts about Halloween is that no matter what age you are, you are never too old to have a good time and dress up. Even though we eventually surpass the age to go trick-or-treating, that doesn’t necessarily mean that adults can’t enjoy one of the best holidays of the year too. This Halloween, consider participating in festive activities including: going to a pumpkin patch, staying in and watching scary movies, or simply dressing up with friends and going to a Halloween party. For a lot of people, coordinating their costumes with their best friends can be a lot of fun, so below is a compiled list of the best duo costume ideas to rock with your BFF. Most of the options are cost-friendly and undoubtedly imaginative, which is hands down the best part of this holiday. Get creative and let loose!

Cher and Dionne- Clueless
UGH….AS IF! This costume will never go out of style and will be as timeless as this best friend duo. Grab your best friend and pick out some plaid to totally rock this fashionista style.
Velma and Daphne- Scooby Doo
Quite possibly the most notoriously famous duo ever created, this best friends costume is the answer to the mystery of what you and your BFF should wear this year. The best part is that both parts are equally just as fashionable and iconic. All the outfit pieces are so easy to find and most of the items can double as normal, everyday wear too (mostly referencing Velma’s turtleneck and skirt). Get to sleuthing this Halloween dressed in the best attire ever.
Monica and Rachel- Friends
This idea pays homage to all the 90s lovers out there, which is amazing because this a
decade of fashion will never truly die. You can easily find a plaid mini skirt, a white turtleneck sweater, and a collared dress, and you and your best friend will perfect this Geller-Green look. For an even more vintage vibe, try looking in a thrift shop for authentic 90s pieces.
Romy and Michele- Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion
“I’m the Mary and you’re the Rhoda!”. But there will be no fighting this Halloween over which person gets to dress up as who because they are equally iconic. Both outfits, to quote Lisa Luder, “...have nice lines [and] a fun, frisky use of color. All and all, I'd have to say they're really... NOT BAD!” She is definitely right because these costumes emulate fierceness and creativity. Search for a pink and blue dress with matching colored heels and have fun with a blast from the past.
Dottie Hinson and Kit Keller- A League of Their Own
There will certainly be no crying allowed while dressed up as these amazing female baseball players. Throw together a pleated skirt, a collared top, athletic socks, a matching belt, all topped off with a hat to get the original Rockford Peaches look. This couple costume will be no less than a home run this Halloween.
Spice up your halloween costume with one of these clearly BFF-worthy movie costumes and you are sure to bring down the haunted house!
