Summer break is coming up and some of us, including myself, are making the trek to Mickey Mouse's kingdom. We've already told you the best things to do at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, so now let's talk about what to wear!
Tips on what to wear to the Disney parks:
When going to Disney World, Disneyland, or any other resorts under the Disney kingdom, it's important to remember practicality. As much as I would love to wear my fanciest dress and my comfiest cardigan, weather and movement gets in the way of looking how you'd like to look.
Whether it's Orlando or California, the weather now is hot and unpredictable, and since most of the parks experience involves being outside and on your feet, it's important to take that into account when dressing for Disney.
So strap on your mouse ears and take notes from your favorite animated mouse, because today we're learning how to dress for Disney!
Kid at Heart
People visit Disney parks for different reasons. Some people really appreciate the work that goes into the films and music, some really love the food and rides. No matter what you go for, Disney has a way of bringing out the inner child in all of us!
Here's a look for your inner child. A fun Disney-themed t-shirt and distressed shorts are super casual but cute for any pictures you take on the trip. Keeping the schedule is also important during your Disney trip, so don't forget your watch!
Layering is important during this time of year, even in Florida or California. Tie a cardigan around your hips for your convenience and slip it on before watching the nighttime firework show.
Lastly, slip on some comfy sneakers that go with anything.
Strolling Down Disney
While practicality is the most important factor for a trip to a Disney park, you might also want to look cute and girly "for the Instagram." Luckily, it can be done with these trends that will last all season.
This look is for your inner Disney fashionista. A good way to stay cool and stylish during the spring is to rock a trendy dress, like this striped off-the-shoulder one with pinstripes reminiscent of classic Disney gift shops.
Two other trends that are pretty yet functional are mini backpacks that can be schlepped everywhere and rose gold sunglasses to shield you from the glare of the sun. Finally, throw on some braided sandals for a fun and easy outfit.
Minnie Mouse in the House
Dressing up as the Disney characters, like the princesses or princes, is prohibited due to copyright and character rules. However, many Disney goers love to take inspiration from their favorite characters and transfer it to their outfit (aka Disneybounding, which we talked about recently).
This outfit is more for the walking and shopping park goer rather than one that wants to go on all the rides, but at the end of the day if you're comfortable in it, wear it.
To take inspiration from Minnie Mouse for a Disneybound look, start off with a pink polka-dot skirt and a white tank. For makeup, keep it minimal with a bit of mascara and lip gloss. Make the outfit a tad more practical with walking shoes and a sleek crossbody bag.
Child or adult, Disney is magical. Going to the parks this year is the perfect way to have fun and relive the magic of heroes, princesses, palaces, and more. So whether or not you make the trek to a Disney park this year, take some fashion inspiration from the happiest place on Earth.
