Twiggy and eyeliner, Chanel and quilted bags, Hepburn and black gloves—some fashion pairings are so iconic you can hardly imagine one existing without the other. And no pairing is truer than Minnie Mouse and her oversized bow. Whether she’s decked out in her (equally famous) polka dots or donning a themed holiday outfit, Minnie reliably blends girly details with creative flair, making her one of our ultimate style inspirations.
We’ve sifted through her fashion archive and catalogued a handful of our favorite Minnie looks.
Combining a retro, scoop neck silhouette with Minnie’s signature polka-dot print, this cute look is a classic for a good reason.
Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary Celebration
With that bedazzled belt, sparkly bow, and gem-studded neckline, Minnie certainly took Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration theme to heart.
Never has Minnie’s blue eyeliner looked more appropriate. Replacing her usual bow with a flower and sky blue ribbon, Minnie’s tropical look at the Aulani Resort is one for the books.
As a member of Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus at Walt Disney World, Minnie swaps her bow for decorative feathers and adds pops of bright pink to her wardrobe—undeniably earning the “Magnifique” after her name.
Did Minnie honestly wake up like this? With a perfect hair bow and fuzzy high-heel slippers? We can’t fathom how she achieves this level of casual cool, but we’re pretty sure she puts our PJ game to shame.
Minnie’s Christmas evening look is equally great. Combining a simple button up with a long red skirt, Minnie complements her hair bow with a feminine bow tie for an ensemble we’d be happy to wear any time of the year.
Classic Minnie, With a Twist
Revamping Minnie’s classic silhouette and color scheme with a smattering of sequins, this outfit offers a modern take on Minnie’s classic look
Wheel of Fortune
That missing “S” must stand for style. This floor length gown features feathers and elbow length gloves for a fabulous, flapper-inspired look.
Rock the Dots
Designed by Christian Siriano for January’s “Minnie Rocks the Dots” event, this dress replaces Minnie’s polka dots with oversized bows, mashing her signature styles into one.
