7 Ways To Recreate Your Favorite Disney Dresses For Adulthood

Disney

Some days you want to feel like the belle of the ball, even when you’re just going to work or picking up some groceries. I feel you. But because we live in a world where Halloween is not every day, you might get a few side-eye glances strolling down the dairy aisle in a full ball gown. But you can reach a happy compromise: there are ways to recreate your favorite Disney dresses in ways that will still let you pass as an adult. (But you will know that your getup is worthy of a queen.)

Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the animated classics or just someone who has pinned a few too many outfits to a Once Upon A Time board, you can bring spirit of those magical wardrobes into your daily outfits. These looks are modern enough to go anywhere, and far more practical than a full skirt and tiara.

You can channel your inner queen for any occasion. Whether you're looking for a casual outfit or something for a formal affair, let the magic of Disney be your guide and pick up a few of these looks. And as an added bonus, no dalmatians were harmed in the selection of these outfits.

1. Rapunzel

This body frock wedding tulip dress ($403) from ASOS is pretty close to the original spirit of Rapunzel's midi-length frock. But the sheer panels in the skirt bring this look into the modern age.  

2. Cinderella

This light blue chiffon maxi dress ($79) from xiaolizi's Etsy shop has all the flare and drama of Cinderella's dress in a more up-tp-date silhouette. It's practically made for spinning.

3. Elsa

If you need a little sparkle with your outfit, Nasty Gal's sequin cutout dress ($98) has you covered. This little number is fit for an ice queen.

4. Snow White

This tie-dye jersey maxi dress ($36) from Neiman Marcus is a modern, summery remix of Snow White's classic look. It preserves her outfit's color scheme in a casual sundress, which is probably about a thousand times more comfortable than the typical princess getup.

5. Evil Queen

Gotta admit, Disney villains have a wicked sense of style. Channel the evil queen's dramatic flair with this cape sleeve mini dress ($70) from GCGme.

6. Tiana

Sweet and sensible, this soda fountain dress ($60) from Modcloth is almost a perfect match for Tiana's shirt-dress. And it's pretty work appropriate, which is fitting for a Tiana-inspired look.

7. Belle

If you need a little something to throw on when you're running to the library, this flowy yellow dress ($108) from House of Fraser fits the bill. It's lightweight and chic with a full soft skirt.
