Fashion Inspiration: Walt Disney’s The Little Mermaid
July 21, 2010 Leave a comment
This week, I’m going to show you how to get the look from one of the most beloved Disney films of all time: The Little Mermaid.
1. Under the Sea
The first outfit is based on Princess Ariel in her mermaid state. The purple bandeau bikini top is similar to her seashell top, and the green cover-up shorts are the same color as her fins. You can put the shell bracelet and starfish shoes in the adorable tote if you decide to go for a swim.

2. Dinner with the Prince
For Ariel’s first dinner with Prince Eric, she wears a lovely pink and white dress with puff sleeves. When given a fork, she calls it a “dinglehopper” and thinks that its function is to brush hair. The outfit I put together is a little pink dress with slightly puffed sleeves, and super feminine accessories. I also included earrings in the shape of a fork and knife, bringing to mind the “dinglehopper” incident.

3. Kiss the Girl
For a day out on the town with Prince Eric, Ariel wears a casual blue outfit. While wearing this outfit, she comes so close to getting him to kiss her; her friend Sebastian the crab even sings a song to convince Prince Eric to kiss her. The outfit I chose is a casual patterned corset top, navy skirt, and sky blue cardigan. I also included a bow headband, similar to the large bow Ariel wears, and crab earrings.

4. The Little Mermaid
Even though Ariel ultimately chooses to live as a human, most people think of her as a perpetual mermaid. Although she isn’t shown wearing lavish outfits, you can still get inspiration from her mermaid look for an outfit that is appropriate to wear places other than the beach or pool.
I chose this beautiful mint green dress with flowy sleeves because it is the same color as her fins and reminds me of the sea. I added a few touches of purple, like her top, in the shoes and flower hair accessory. The necklace is similar to the shell necklace in which Ursula keeps Ariel’s voice.
