The most classic dress is little and black, the perfect tee is plain and white, and the most lovable character graphic is Mickey Mouse. No matter what your style is, there’s one staple that should be in everyone’s wardrobe—a Mickey tee. The leading mouse is no stranger to the fashion scene, as he’s been popularly advocated by fashion-forward influencers and celebrities for years. We’ve put together a number of ways to wear your Mickey shirt to the parks to inspire your fashion-forward #DisneyStyle.
The Collared Layer
Layer a white collared shirt under a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, then add a bold statement rhinestone necklace under the collar. It’s an easy way to make a casual outfit stand out in a fashion-forward way.
The Leather Moto
Hot summer days waiting in line usually turns into cool nights, watching the fireworks show. Pair your Mickey t-shirt with a leather jacket and high-waisted shorts for an edgy yet casual look. A comfortable espadrille shoe will make walking around all day easy, and a brimmed hat will help block the sun (still use sunscreen!).

They come and go from decade to decade, but culottes are back in full force. Tuck your Mickey tee into a wide leg culotte trouser, like this lightweight denim one from Zara. Accessorize with a floppy hat and scarf for the perfect Sunday in the Park with Mickey.
The Bright POC
A little POC (pop of color) never hurt anyone! Wear a white or grey Mickey shirt with bright shorts or pants instead of jeans. You can instantly make this look cool with a cute backpack and high-top Converse sneakers.

The Utility Jacket
The olive green utility jacket, inspired by military uniform, became a fashion item in 1959. Fifty-seven years later, after many modifications, it’s still making top trend lists around the world. The best part about this outfit, is that you’ll be quick to dry after Splash Mountain!

The Girly Midi
Unless you’re climbing Tarzan’s Treehouse, a mid-length skirt is a great feminine option to pair with your Mickey tee. It’s a playful way to dress up a basic t-shirt. Be sure to bring a camera, this is an outfit you’ll need to shoot just about everywhere in the park.

Nowadays, sequins and sparkle aren’t just for formal evening events. This Topshop jacket (also seen on Taylor Swift during her 1989 tour) is an easy way to make a comfortable sporty look, look trendy. With a scrunchy and Adidas sneakers, this outfit is an ode to our younger Disney-loving selves.

The Striped Skirt
We love mixing Mickey with prints, and the easiest way to do that is with stripes. A striped skirt, cat eye sunglasses, and ankle-tie flats give Mickey an oxymoronic retro update. Skirt: Topshop; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Earrings: BCBG Maxazria; Wallet: Kate Spade; Bracelet: Dannijo; Shoes: Isabel Marant
The Sleeveless Jacket
When the short, fitted vest needed a makeover, designers came up with the revolutionary idea to chop the sleeves off jackets for an elongated vest style, the “sleeveless jacket.” The trend comes in mid to floor-length versions, and is an excellent way to add style to your Mickey t-shirt. Skirt: Oasis; Sleeveless Jacket: Zara; Bag and Cuff: Madewell; Earrings: Gorjana; Shoes: Sole Society
The Leather Backpack
Leave your nylon Jansport backpacks at home. If hands-free is your way to carry your necessities around the Parks, choose a cool, printed canvas, or minimal all-leather backpack. Add gold accents to a black, white, and red outfit to match Mickey’s color-blocked style.
