Continuing my series on fashion inspired by Walt Disney World, today we’re taking a trip to a¬†tropical getaway with South Pacific flair.¬†Disney’s Polynesian Resort sits directly across from the Magic Kingdom on the Seven Seas Lagoon. From the minute guests step into the lobby, they are welcomed with a large fountain and Pacific island-themed decor.

(For more posts in this series, see fashion inspired by Disney’s Contemporary Resort and fashion inspired by Disney’s Gland Floridian Resort.)

Although a trip to the Polynesian may not be in your summer plans, you can be inspired by the tropical aesthetic the resort provides. Below, I’ve created two different looks inspired by Disney’s Polynesian Resort in Walt Disney World. Scroll down to see them both!

Spirit of Aloha

Polynesian Resort Outfit - yellow blouse, leaf print shorts, wedges
Top, Shorts, Shoes, Hat, Bag, Necklace, Sunglasses

Get an island appeal with ease when you step out in this fun outfit. Tuck a yellow shirt into banana leaf print shorts. Slip on a pair of wedges and throw on a fedora for an extra-tropical vibe. Complete the ensemble with a floral statement necklace, a neutral-tone crossbody bag, and a pair of retro shades. Perfect for a day spent next to the shore!

Tropical State of Mind

Polynesian Resort Outfit - tropical flower print dress, sandals, scarf
Dress, Shoes, Bag, Scarf, Sunglasses, Earrings

Get into a tropical state of mind wherever you are this summer with these few key pieces. Start with a high-low tropical flower print dress and strappy flat sandals. Next, add a brightly-colored circle scarf for a pop of color and teardrop earrings for a trendy twist. Finish the outfit with a pineapple print shopper tote and tortoiseshell sunnies and you’re ready to go!

    I really like the first outfit but I wish the skirt was yellow and blue and not yellow and green but that is just me. I really like the second outfit and it could be fore anything, just swap out the bag for a clutch if it was night.

    Can you do the Port Orleans resorts? Those are my favorites at Disney World.

    I stayed at this resort a few years back and it was so beautiful! These outfits totally represent the relaxing and tropical feel of the Polynesian. And even if your not traveling this summer, you can still wear these styles around your home town!!!! :)
