Demurely Disney: A guide to the most fashion-forward looks for the fun-at-heart

A lot of things come to mind when we talk about Disney. However, I would fancy guess that high fashion is not one of them. That changes today.

If you are a big fan of Disney but feel that is at odds with being a sexy, stylish adult, the Disney collection at Torrid and Disney Couture available at the Disney Store allow you to have it all!

The best parts of these collections are the lines and designs similar to what you would always expect from Torrid.  One of my absolute favorites is the fit and flair swing dress. It as a classic retro feel married with the classic mini mouse polka dots. The best part is that the halter top is constructed in such a way that even busty women don’t need to be bothered with one of those industrial-strength strapless bras.

Many of the pieces you can find out there do you have a cartoon centric motif but we really love the hidden Mickeys and small homages to characters in the prints, like these Alice in Wonderland dresses. The cutouts and lace detailing give one a steampunk edge, while the other is fit for a queen. Look ready for the maddest of tea parties by topping it off with these official merchandise fascinator ears or one of the many Etsy ear headbands available in every style imaginable.











Disney Couture’s silky crystal-embellished tank, bow clutch bags and this circle skirt or logo cardigan from Torrid are perfect buys if you want to incorporate some whimsy into a nice dinner date outfit. Torrid also carries all of the sexy tops and bottoms to complete the look.

Want something a little less fancy but just to shake to hit the amusement parks in? Then try one of this fun Belle sweatshirt with some comfy jeggings or a denim skirt with one of these edgy tops direct from the official park shops! The asymmetrical hems and trendy embellishments make these anything but childish.

A Villain-ish look: 

If princesses and Minnie aren’t really your style, then here are some great picks for the more devilish adult.

This striped skater dress is as comfortable as it is flattering and at a closer look you will find many of Disney’s best villains incorporated into the print. And who can resist sexy skinnies with an “Evil” twist?

New Haunted Mansion accessories give added gothic glam to anything you fancy!
















Sadly the official Disney villain ears are no longer available online anywhere but eBay, but you can also check out villain inspired ears like these Maleficent ones by TaylorMadeOneofAKind on Etsy.  These looks are for the rule-breakers and the risk-takers who are sure to break a few hearts in the process. As Ursula once sang, oh those “poor unfortunate souls.”

Don’t forget the accessories!

While in the park, you will want prettiest pair of ears but many hunt for all of the Hidden Mickeys. Keep people guessing with hidden Mickey accessories that will always remind you of your vacation without looking like you are obviously decked out in Disney!














No one would ever guess at first glance that your luxurious leather goods from Dooney & Boorke are from the House of Mouse, not to mention how luxe you will look in these golden chandelier earrings! Most handbags and fine sterling jewelry from Arribas and Pandora will cost you a pretty penny starting at over $100, but most of the fashion jewelry rings in at around only $15. The Alex and Ani Bangles are a great buy at $39.95 at and come in a wide variety of themes from Star Wars to Cinderella!

Kingdom Couture available on makes a few hobos and totes that are great for everyday. The Snow White tote is classicly chic with navy embossed faux leather, gold chain and an apple charm. Only you will really know that they are Mickey Mouse memorabilia!

Now you are all ready to channel your inner princess or villain in the upmost style.
