I feel like there used to be such a clear distinction among each decade when it came to fashion and style. You know that flapper dresses are from the 20s, full skirts are from the 50s, and flared jeans are from the 70s. And even when there was a bit of overlap or repetition, each decade always had its own special flavor. But if you were to ask me what that special flavor is for us today, for this decade – I wouldn’t be able to answer you because I don’t think I can narrow it down. And you know what, I think that’s pretty awesome.
There is so much room for individuality in fashion these days. So much in fact, that there’s even enough for something I never thought would see the light of day outside of theme parks – Disney Style.
Since a big part of modern day fashion is actually retro, I figured I’d play around with 3 decades that have been popping up in today’s aesthetic, and apply it to something I truly love. No occasion, no particular reason. Just for kicks.
Though I am not a fashion expert by any means, and though none of these clothes are actually vintage, I thought I could show you how easy it is to transform your Disney pieces – whether park souvernirs, or something from your local department store – into whatever style you want.

Nothing says the 70s to me quite like a good flared jean. It’s been a while since I’ve worn pants that aren’t high waisted, but I felt pretty groovy in this pair.
Used my Mickey ringer tee for this look, and added some far out specs to match the blue in my shirt. And of course I had to do the middle-part in my hair for that chill vibe.
I don’t have my mules anymore, but I did have these suede ankle boots that worked just as well. Is this look off the hook or what? Okay, I’ll stop with the 70s lingo now lol.
When I think 80s I think crazy colors, so I totally spazzed when I remembered I had this sweater with Mickey, Pluto, and even little Donald on the sleeve. It’s the perfect Disney take on the radical prints of the decade.
Paired it with denim overalls and white sneaks, and since I didn’t have a scrunchy I tied this yellow bandana in my hair instead. (I actually have a whole blog on this and other Disney hairstyles if you want to check it out. Click here.)
Totally tubular, amiright?
These are the years I remember. I was a child of choker necklaces and flannel. Which is exactly the look I put together for the decade I grew up in.
Wore my bright yellow allover print Mickey shirt with faded black jeans, a yellow flannel, combat boots, and a yellow beret. I don’t actually own a choker anymore so I used this wraparound bracelet instead.
And I gotta tell you, I’m feelin’ hella fly.

I had an awesome time incorporating Disney into these retro looks! It just opened more doors for me as an everyday Disney dresser, and reminded me how wonderful it is to live in a time where you can wear whatever makes you happy.
Since this was a last minute thing I put together, these looks aren’t as accurate as I’d like them to be. But, all in good fun of course. If you’re interested in me putting together Disney Style looks throughout the decades, let me know by commenting here or sending me a message on Instagram.
Because that would be off the hook! Okay I’m done now. Lol. Peace out.
