COUPLES: Saved by the bell costume

As a child of the 90’s, I loved the TV show, Saved by the Bell! This Saved by the Bell costume would be a simple couples costume would be pretty easy to throw together last minute. For the Kelly costume, if you have long brown hair, your one stop ahead of the gang! Then raid your closet  for a jean jacket and a tight floral skirt. As for Zach, a pair of acid washed jeans and a striped tee doest he trick! If nothing else, take a trip to a thrift store for some awesome 90s clothes. That giant portable phone is a must for the Zach Morris costume!
