All this month, we’ve been celebrating #MinnieStyle leading up to National Polka Dot Day and the Minnie Rocks the Dots event. One of the reasons why Minnie Mouse continues to influence fashion is because her signature style elements work in any decade. Whether it’s pattern mixing with a polka dot shirt, or adding a bow headband to a semi-sweet outfit, Minnie’s classic style has been a statement throughout fashion history. She’s given us 88 years of red flippy skirts, platform mary janes, and of course, polka dots—the least we can do is celebrate!
To give you ideas on how to #RockTheDots and show off your #MinnieStyle, we let Minnie Mouse be our fashion muse for a vintage rock ‘n’ roll recording session. Our photographer and stylist, Silke Labson, filled us in on the inspiration for this look book and how Minnie Mouse’s fashion sense will never go out of style.
