Snow White

Growing up, the first fashion icons I had in my life were the Disney Princesses. I watched Disney movies over and over until I could recite all of the lines, and I dreamed of living in a castle, finding true love, and of course, wearing beautiful clothes.

As a young child, it was easy to dress like my favorite princesses because there were Disney t-shirts, shoes, and even princess dress-up costumes; however, now that I’m a college student, I would look ridiculous if I walked around wearing those same items. Although it’s tricky to take fashion inspiration from the Disney Princesses without looking like you’re going to a Halloween party, it is possible and can actually look great if done right. Don’t believe me? Read on and you’ll see.

About Snow White

Walt Disney’s first animated movie was “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” The princess, Snow White, is an avant-garde beauty with skin as white as snow and short black hair. Her beauty is definitely not just skin deep; she is kind to everyone, even her evil stepmother. Here are some facets of her character that you could possibly incorporate into a Snow White-inspired outfit:

  • Snow White always wears the primary colors: red, yellow, and blue.
  • She is a big animal lover.
  • Her makeup is fairly simple, with the standout feature of ruby red lips.
  • In the movie, she is tricked into eating a poisonous apple.

The look we’re going for here is subtley Snow White-inspired: copying her style exactly would make you look like you were in costume, so unless that’s what you’re going for, keep your inspired look subtle and fun. Below, I’ve created some outfits to show you what I mean.

Snow White Outfit #1

Snow White Outfit 1

Hair Bows- Dorothy Perkins,  Purse- AMI Clubwear,  Skirt- Modcloth,  Top- Modcloth,  Necklace- Shanalogic,  Shrug-  Matalan,  Shoes- Urban Outfitters

The luxurious material of the top and the full skirt make this outfit fit for a Princess. The necklace has a bird on it, which is very Snow White, and the shoes are the perfect combination of dainty and practical.

Snow White Outfit #2

Earrings- ASOS,  Shoes- Zappos,  Top- Modcloth,  Jeans- Genetic Denim

If you’re not into skirts and dresses, you can still rock an outfit inspired by Snow White. The sleeves on the top give a pop of yellow, without being “too much”.

Snow White Outfit #3

Purse- Debenhams,  Shoes- Forever 21,  Dress- Forever 21,  Scarf- Modcloth, Necklace- Forever 21

This dress is a lot like Snow White’s dress in the film, with the corset top and A-line silhouette, but it’s different enough to not look like it’s a costume. The apple necklace represents, of course, Snow White’s poison apple.

Snow White Makeup

Snow White’s makeup is fairly simple. She naturally has large doe-like eyes, matte skin, red lips, and rosy cheeks. To get this look, wear a bit of cream blush and face powder (of your natural shade, of course – don’t try to look pale if you don’t have naturally pale skin). For the eyes, wear a natural shade of eyeshadow and line the top of your eyes with a liquid liner. Use lengthening mascara to make your lashes stand out. To make your eyes look brighter, line the inner rims of your eyes with white eyeliner. Finish your look with deep red lipstick.

  3. AH! this post was amazing!!!! Snow white is my favorite princess (mostly cuz we have the same hair) I was even her for halloween last year but I never thought to wear stuff inspired by her in such a beautifully subtle way. I actually have stuff just like the first outfit and its gonna be my first day of school outfit now when I get back to college! Of course I don’t expect anyone to think i look like snow white, but I’ll feel like a princess! and that’s all that matters right?

  6. This is such a fantastic idea, like the 65 posts before me said! I would love to see more, but maybe you could offer some less literal interpretations of each character. Fab idea!

  7. I go to school at the University of Central Florida and I have a Disney annual pass so naturally I love the Disney Princesses! I really loved this post! It was done really well because I can clearly see that the inspiration came from Snow White, but it doesn’t look like a costume. Love it!

  8. I love the third look. They’re all really interesting looks – I’d like to see more of them. I’d really love to see if these translate into real life as well as they look here.
