One of my favorite days of the year—Dapper Day at Disneyland—is nearly here! This Sunday, the Park will be filled with fashionable Disney fans, wearing their finest clothes from today and yesteryear. If you’re anything like me, picking out what to wear for Dapper Day is always a unique challenge. You have to balance practicality (uncomfortable heels are definitely a no-go), with style (fascinators, parasols, and lace gloves, please!) for a look that’s perfectly dapper, but comfortable as well. If you’re still planning your outfit, I put together a few Disney character-inspired looks that will have you looking fashionable this Sunday.
As we pointed out recently on Disney Style, Yzma has quite the stylish closet. I love the idea of a little black dress paired with colorful accessories, which made Yzma an easy outfit to pull off for Dapper Day. The purple fascinator headband from Nordstrom is the perfect way to channel Yzma’s many capes and headpieces, while the blue sphere earrings from Liberty are almost a near-match for ones she wears in the film.
Since his debut in 1928, Mickey Mouse has been known for his dapper style. I decided to mix a ’70s vibe into this outfit, with an off-the-shoulder top and piped-detailing A-line skirt. Round sunglasses and a chunky heel complete the look.
This Peter Pan look might be my favorite, just because it combines everything in fashion that I personally love: a lace dress, oxfords, and oversized sunglasses. The bell sleeves and the high collar on this H&M dress make this modern dress a vintage find. For a nod to Peter’s red feather cap, I found these barrettes from Nordstrom that will pair nicely with a throwback hairstyle.
