Fashion Inspiration: Walt Disney’s Princess Jasmine

83 Comments

Walt Disney's Aladdin movie poster

After the many requests from you guys, our Disney inspiration series continues today with fashion inspired by the independent and adventurous Princess Jasmine from the movie Aladdin.

Like the previous articles in this series, the purpose of this article is to use a childhood idol as inspiration for outfits that you can actually pull off as a college student. All it takes is a little creativity! For more Disney-inspired looks, check out the articles on Walt Disney’s Snow White, Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Walt Disney’s The Little Mermaid, and Walt Disney’s Cinderella.

About Princess Jasmine – Story Recap

Princess Jasmine is the daughter of the Sultan of Agrabah. She is frustrated with her life because she is denied the right to make important decisions for herself. All she really wants is to have adventures, but there is a law stating that she must get married. Of course, the princess refuses to get married to someone that she does not love.

Angry with her circumstances, she sneaks out of the palace dressed as a peasant, vowing never to return. When she enters the marketplace, she meets a young man named Aladdin and his pet monkey Abu. Meanwhile, the Grand Vizier to the Sultan, an evil man named Jafar, is on the hunt for a genie in a lamp. He finds out that Aladdin is the only one who can retrieve this lamp, so he has him captured and the Princess is returned to the palace. Before being separated, Aladdin finds out Jasmine’s true identity.

Jafar tricks Aladdin into getting the lamp, then attempts to steal it from him and leave him trapped in a cave. However, Jafar is unable to escape with the lamp. Now Aladdin has a genie to grant him wishes, and his first wish is to become a Prince so that he can marry Princess Jasmine.

Aladdin rides into Agrabah in a huge parade to make a grand entrance for the Princess. Jasmine, however, is not impressed and thinks Aladdin (now known as Prince Ali) is just like all of the other rich, pompous princes. That evening, he takes her on a magic carpet ride around the world, where she recognizes that he is the boy from the marketplace, but he lies and says that he is truly a Prince who dresses as a peasant from time to time.

The Princess is in love with Prince Ali and tells her father she wants to marry him. After the Sultan formally announces their engagement, Jafar steals the lamp from Aladdin and gains control of the genie. He reveals to everyone that Prince Ali is really just Aladdin, and makes Jasmine his personal slave. Fortunately, Aladdin tricks him into wishing he was the most powerful genie in the world, and Jafar then ends up locked in a lamp for all eternity.

Everything goes back to normal, and Jasmine tells Aladdin that she loves him even though he isn’t really a Prince. Her father recognizes her bravery and her love for Aladdin, so he changes the law and allows the two to marry.

1. Jasmine’s Aqua Outfit

Princess Jasmine from Disney's Aladdin

Princess Jasmine’s everyday outfit consists of a cropped off-the-shoulder top and matching aqua pants. The outfit I made consists of a gorgeous shoulder-baring aqua dress, a headband similar to Jasmine’s, and cute pointy flats.

2. The Big Announcement

When the Sultan announces “Prince Ali” and Jasmine’s engagement, Jasmine is pictured wearing a gorgeous purple dress with volume around the waist. My outfit inspired by her purple dress consists of a sparkly lilac top, a voluminous skirt, and a headband. I also included tiger eye jewelry because, of course, Jasmine’s best friend is a tiger.

3. Jafar’s Slave

Princess Jasmine red slave outfit

When Jasmine is forced to be Jafar’s slave, she wears an outfit that is similar to her everyday outfit, except in red. Since her slave look is more sultry than usual, my “inspired by” outfit includes a sexy body-con dress and black and gold accessories, including a snake arm cuff like the one Jasmine actually wears.

4. Another Aqua Outfit

Jasmine on carpet

Since Princess Jasmine is most often pictured in her aqua outfit, I decided to make another outfit inspired by that particular look.

Most Disney Princesses are depicted wearing dresses the majority of the time, but since Jasmine rarely wears dresses, I took the opportunity to make an outfit with pants that would be appropriate for work. For the outfit below, I chose harem pants with a similar shape to Jasmine’s, but in a neutral color so they don’t look like a costume. The top echoes the aqua in her outfit, and the accessories are inspired by the atmosphere of Agrabah, creating a very Jasmine-esque vibe.

Bonus: Genie Fashion for Guys

Since the genie is one of my favorite characters in the movie, I decided to make a genie-inspired outfit for guys. (I know some of you read CF, too!) Whether your boyfriend or your closest guy friend really needs your fashion guidance, or if you just want to give him a new look, this genie outfit is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Since the genie has a fairly simple look, I used dark jeans, a blue t-shirt, and a lighter blue cardigan to achieve a similar aesthetic. For genie-inspired accessories, I added a red belt and gold watch.

Jeans- Levi’s,  Watch- Endless,  Tee- Gap,  Belt- DC,  Cardigan- ASOS

Thoughts?

Are you inspired by Princess Jasmine’s looks? Which other Disney characters would you like to see posts about in the future? I want to know what you think, so be sure to leave your thoughts in a comment!

    This was so pretty, I loved the work look! But please, please, PLEASE do Belle! I actually just bought a yellow sundress because it reminded me of her (and because of your “casual” option for Cinderella – thanks for the idea!). All I can hope is that you’re saving the very best for last ;P

    These looks are all really fantastic. You have impressed me once again. I love Princess Jasmine because of her style potential. I enjoy the Genie-inspired guys’ outfit. Its really interesting and actually wearable. I could see my boyfriend wearing something similar.

    Looking forward to Mulan!

    July 21st, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Great picks! I’m not sure I would wear them, but they really do reflect Jasmine’s costumes as well as current trends. Good job, and I can’t wait for Pocahontas!

    i really like genie inspired look but on the other hand, it also makes me think of this outfit as a look inspired by superman lmao

    anyway, great post!

    I totally love the guys outfit! The Jasmine outfits are cute as well but I think it’s great you did a guys bonus…

  15. 15
    July 21st, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    I’d love to see some Belle! I already made a Belle inspired outfit on my own, but would like to see what you come up with. I also think Mulan would be fun too!

    July 21st, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    This looks great! I love the genie fashion for guys, such a good idea! The big announcement outfit is my favorite :) probably just because I love purple…the color of royalty!

    I love the first outfit, as well as the one for Jafar’s Slave.

    I totally love the second aqua outfit. It’s work-appropriate and really cute. Jasmin would approve! The slave and men’s genie outfit are awesome too. PLEASE do Belle!!!!

  20. 20
    July 21st, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    Please Please Please do Princess Belle next time!! :) Thank youu!

  21. 21
    July 21st, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    Loved every look! Specially the Jafar’s slave one and the bonus, the harem pants for work are also real cute. We’re missing Belle and don’t forget that Tiger Lilly is also a Disney princess :P

  22. 22
    July 21st, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    The whole slave outfit (from the movie) really disturbs me. It’s pretty obvious that she’s a sex slave to some degree. So for that reason I cannot be inspired by that outfit in particular. Otherwise, nice job with Disney Princesses! Looking forward to the rest!

  23. 23
    July 21st, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    I love this series!!! Great job, once again!!

  24. 24
    July 21st, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Love the outfits! It would be great to see Princess Tiana and Belle. They’re not technically princesses, but you could make some really cool ensembles for Esmerelda, Jane (from Tarzan) and Megara (from Hercules).

  25. 25
    July 21st, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    What a cute post, Calli! Who doesn’t love Princess Jasmine? And the sample outfits are so cute – I love the bubble skirt!

  26. 26
    July 21st, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Loved it! But please do Belle next?

  27. 27
    July 21st, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Love outfit number 4, I’d wear it myself except change the pants to a skirt. The bonus look is also miles better than the outfits in the article about men’s fashion.

  28. 28
    July 21st, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    Yes!! I’ve been waiting for u to do princess jasmine since the first post she was definitely my top favorite disney princesses!! I hope u do esmerelda from the hunchback of notre dame even though she’s not a princess she was also a favorite of mine. Probably because she and jasmine weren’t pale skinned and blonde or had blue eyes they were darker skinned and had black hair so maybe i felt as if i could relate a little more to them. Thank God they finally made a black princess, Princess Tiana!! Can’t wait for her either!!

  29. 29
    July 21st, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    This is so great! I might make a Princess Tiana one for my blog…but I agree, Ezmerelda would be AWESOME!

    July 21st, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    Definitely loving this series. The last two outfits (pants and men’s look) were my favorites.

  31. 31
    July 21st, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    Love this series! The bonus outfit with pants wouldn’t be appropriate to wear where I work (the blouse shows too much arms and I’m not sure about the pants lenght, but I guess they would do in such heat), but I would wear it anywhere else, I really like those pants and shoes.

  32. 32
    July 21st, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    “Do you trust me?”,-Aladdin. Yes Calli i do trust you. I trust you to make college students around the world dress with the inspiration of Walt Disneys classic movies in an extremely mature and fashtionable way.

    You are magnificent.

    The men’s look is great, how creative! haha

    July 21st, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    I really loved the genie outfit! You should do more disney guys as well as the gals. I’m all for seeing outfits inspired by Belle, but could you also do Esmerelda? I realize she’s not a princess, but I just love The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

  35. 35
    July 21st, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Thankyou so much for doing Jasmine!! Next outfit can it be Belle please ooh or Esmerelda thats a good idea! Pocahontas would be interesting aswell! 2 fav outfits for this one is jafar’s slave and Jasmine’s aqua outfit!

  36. 36
    July 21st, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    I would love to see megara from hercules! She’s my favorite!

    July 21st, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    I’m in love with this series. Seriously, it never gets old.
    And hint-hint, I’d like to see Princess Kida from Atlantis sometime in the future. She’s got what’s probably my favorite character design of allll the princesses.

  38. 38
    July 21st, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    The outfits look so nice! Pleeeasee do Mulan and Megera later :D

  39. 39
    July 21st, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    Awesome post for one of my favorite movies! And I agree with everyone else, Belle needs to be the next inspiration. And then I hoping for Mulan. :)

    July 21st, 2010 at 10:04 pm

  42. 42
    July 21st, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    ohh I just got another great idea, do Giselle from Enchanted! it’ll be something kind of different but still fun :)

  43. 43
    July 21st, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    If you’re getting tired of people telling you how AWESOME this series is…
    That’s too bad ;D becuase I HAVE to tell you, IT’S GENIUS!

    Jasmine couldn’t have been easy to do, nice selections! The tiger eye detail, snake cuff, pointed shoes, it is all impeccable ^__^

    As for suggestions, ESMERALDA the gypsy from Hunchback! PLEEASE!!~
    I would LOOVE to see how you would add some gypsy magic into a modern girl’s day wardrobe ;D

  44. 44
    July 21st, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    ** oops, I meant modern day girl’s wardrobe ;D ahah!

    July 21st, 2010 at 11:21 pm

  46. 46
    July 22nd, 2010 at 12:58 am

    This was a fabulous post! I love the entire series!!

    For the next one– you should consider doing Anastasia. Its a Disney story people hardly think about and its not one of the more popular ones but I definitely believe the fashion in that movie is absolutely timeless! Even as a poor orphan Anastasia is perfectly lovely!

  47. 47
    July 22nd, 2010 at 12:59 am

    Beautiful! Could you do Esmeralda as well?

  48. 48

  49. 49
    July 22nd, 2010 at 2:07 am

    Love the outfits!!

    Please do Mulan next time!!! She’d be really interesting because of her dressing like a girl AND guy throughout the movie!

  50. 50
    July 22nd, 2010 at 4:13 am

    The third one is my favorite. You have to do more princesses!!!
    -Belle
    -Tiana
    -Pocahontas
    -Mulan (okay she’s not really a princess)

  51. 51
    July 22nd, 2010 at 8:50 am

    I love these! I would really enjoy Belle, Princess Tiana, and Meg from Hercules please!!!

    Thank you for everything you do for us college fashion-goers.

    This was a great post, it was my favourite from the series My favourite outfit was the first one, great dress. :) I really think you should do one for Mulan. And Lisa I think the post for men were good but the actual blogger for guys was good, and since you’re not a guy I don’t think you can diss him.

    Wow,nice post ! I greatly appreciate your innovation. It combines the Cartoon character with the real everyday life. When putting on these outfit, you cannot help having the illusion that you are princess Jasmine.

  56. 56
    July 23rd, 2010 at 3:30 am

    Oh my gosh – I adore this series!! I can totally see Jasmine in every one of those outfits! :DDD

    I’ve always loved princess Jasmine…(I’ll give you 1 guess why, lol) so when I saw this I had to check out what you put together. All of the outfits are great, but I particularly love the purple outfit. I actually just bought a purple skirt VERY similar to that one. So looks like someone is going to be buying some tiger-eye jewelry very soon.

    Interesting comments, feel that the amount of research you’ve done, the collections that have been put together could have been more imaginative to back up your findings.

    Pleeeeaasseee do Tangled. It’s my absolute favorite Disney movie and it could make for some wonderful girly romantic outfits.
