5 Outfits Inspired by Classic Disney Posters

There’s something that gives classic Disney posters a magic of their own. Maybe it’s their hand-drawn aesthetic, or their ability to transport us to a different era—their bright colors or nostalgia-inducing tag lines; suffice it to say, they’re genuine works of art. And like all works of art, they are seriously inspiring.

With a quick flick of our Disney Style wands, we’ve transformed these posters from wall art to wardrobe statements. Scroll through these inspired outfits for a novel way to pay homage to the films they embody.

Dumbo

Disney Posters - Dumbo Outfit

Hat: Forever 21; Shirt: Aeropostale; Skirt: Lands’ End; Belt: Madewell; Socks: Swell; Shoes: ASOS; Necklace: Forever 21

This Dumbo poster reminds us that there’s a way to pull off circus-chic. Taking a cue from its multi-colored lettering and warm shades, we’ve paired leather accessories with a patterned skirt and chambray top. The elephant necklace is the cherry on top.

Snow White

Disney Posters - Snow White Outfit

Dress: French Connection;  Shoes: Norma J. Baker; Bracelet: Lucky Feather; Purse: Mighty Purse; Earrings: Kate Spade; Nail Polish: Dior

This original Snow White poster’s triangular composition reminded us of classic dress silhouettes from the era. Following the posters’s pastel color scheme, we paired a light blue shirt-dress with heels and a clutch for a vintage look. The gold bow earrings and apple-red nail polish add extra Snow White details, while the inspiring bracelet reminds us of the Princess’ can-do spirit.

Sleeping Beauty

Disney Posters - Sleeping Beauty

Coat: Topshop;  Shirt: RE/DONE; Shorts: Valentino; Shoes: ASOS; Purse: GLINT; Earrings: Kiki McDonough; Pin: Lord and Taylor; Lipstick: MAC

We couldn’t imagine a better homage to Sleeping Beauty‘s technicolor feature than this vibrant poster’s color scheme. Featuring a bold mix of pinks, blues, and purples, it inspired an outfit to match. We’ve paired fun flats with gold accessories—and a rose lapel pin—for a weekend outfit.

101 Dalmatians

Disney Posters - 101 Outfit

Top: Elvi; Pants: Stella McCartney; Shoes: Yoins; Watch: Olivia Burton; Wallet: Kate Spade; Ring: Nach Bijoux

When it comes to colors, black and white are a dalmatian’s forte. This “onederful” 101 Dalmatians poster added a few colors to the scheme and inspired a look fitting for the ’60s era in which the film was released. This mustard top/black trousers combo is howling good.

Cinderella

Disney Posters - Cinderella Outfit

Top: Helmut Lang; Skirt: Topshop; Clutch: Kate Spade; Notebook: Kate Spade; Shoes: Keds; Ring: Lord and Taylor; Earrings: Kate Spade

Featuring a romantic color scheme rife with pinks and gold, this Cinderella poster is positively lovely. Inspired by its soft shades of pink and blue, we’ve arranged some cute and comfy weekend wear, featuring glitter-coated Keds, a vintage ticket Kate Spade clutch, and a pleated Topshop maxi skirt.
