Fashion Lessons from Disney Princesses

In thinking through this topic I thought I’d best consult with someone who I consider an expert in this field. Her name is Madeleine Mills and she just turned four. But man does she know about Disney Princesses.

“To be a true princess,” she starts in her pint sized and silky sweet voice, “you must wear dresses. Pink dresses with pink sparkles are the best and it’s good too, if there is purple on the bottom.” And this advice may seem obvious when considering what we can learn from Disney princesses, but do we put it into practice? How often have you embraced your most utterly feminine side in a sparkly pink dress over the past year?

I certainly haven’t and I’m willing to bet I’d feel pretty happy if I did. So I challenge you to find an occasion to wear a fabulous princess-worthy sparkly pink dress before the end of the year.

“Other ways to be a princess include eating a dinner of bananas and Nutella,” Madeleine continues in breathy excitement, oh-so happy to discuss her favorite topic. “And you should pick a lot of flowers.” I couldn’t agree more. But in the fashion world I’ll have to add that to be a true princess you should embrace off the shoulder shirts, something many Disney Princesses do.

Victoria’s Secret has a lot of options like this pretty floral one for just $40.

From Snow White and Belle we see how powerful the color yellow can be. Don’t run from it even if you’re not tan—heck Snow White was, well you know.

“Princesses also should wear headbands,” Maddie advises.

Cinderella would concur, take on her look with this sparkly blue headband from Etsy and under $20.

To be a true Disney Princess (or celebrity  for that matter) you’ve also got to have flowing cascades of hair. Well I for one, do not have the thick locks required by a Disney Princess and in order to claim them, I’d have to go with clip-ons. So who’s to judge? Try it for a night. Whip you hair around.
