Happy #fashionwednesday, everyone! It’s getting SO CLOSE TO HALLOWEEN but you still have time to grab yourself a fabulous costume because Amazon Prime exists and it’s here to save us all from our procrastinating selves, thank the good lord. Halloween is officially SIX DAYS AWAY and I cannot even believe that it’s already here. October is so close to being over and it breaks my heart because I will have to wait 365 days for the next Halloween…luckily I’m slamming you with as many costumes and Halloween tutorials as I can possibly fit in in the next 6 days. So let’s do this: here is our Taco Couples Costume for Halloween.
SHOP THIS COSTUME:
This costume is incredibly easy to pull off — it just requires a LOT of confidence. Adam and I decided last month that we would be celebrating Halloween as a pair of Tacos because Halloween this year falls on a Tuesday and we LOVE our Taco Tuesday’s. Last year, we chose a really popular costume (Harley Quinn + Joker — see our take on that HERE) and this year we wanted to be a tiny bit more low-key with something less over-done. While we loved our look from 2016, we love this year even more. L O L.
How to dress like a taco with your significant other:
Step One: Choose your desired taco.
There are a LOT of taco costumes on Amazon. We took this very seriously. We knew we wanted to be the same taco, so that meant I had to buy a taco costume intended for a man. For some reason, all of the girl taco costumes were “sexy” and I didn’t want any part of that (our patriarchal society at it’s finest). If I am going to be a food, it needs to be completely obnoxious not in the least be flattering.
Step Two: Choose your desired sombrero.
There are also lots of sombreros to choose from. We chose a wide brim hat that would be, obviously, obnoxious in every form and had tons of bright colors on it. I chose to get us the same hat here, as well, because we really wanted to be as matchy-matchy as we could. Pick your favorite hat and then get two of them for you and your honey.
Step Three: Choose your black under-clothes.
For some reason, I didn’t have a really good pair of black leggings in my wardrobe before now. #whoami So, I went on a hunt for the perfect pair. And OMG DID AMAZON COME THROUGH. These are fleece lined leggings that hug your waist and they are SO COMFORTABLE. I haven’t taken them off all day long. I am planning on buying them in several other colors and have convinced my mom and sister they also need them. As for the turtleneck, I really needed a basic black turtleneck anyways, because they’re so flattering and I can throw them on with a cute vest and basically be done with an outfit.
As for Adam, he put on his Jockey thermals and a plain black tee. We both put on black shoes and that is it for the outfit! It’s SO EASY. You both match, look completely adorable and can go eat tacos at your favorite Mexican restaurant in style. 😉
If you don’t love tacos like we do, you can also dress up like burgers, donuts, pizza…you can pretty much buy any food costume you want. If you have a family, and want to do a costume with 4+, you can do something like two tacos, a little margarita and a little siracha sauce! I almost made my cats part of our costume with us…. (they have other costumes, though. Stay tuned).
