Looking for Princess dress-up ideas for a little girl? There are so many to choose from, but every little girl knows that Disney is the expert on princess dresses! Here’s a short list on some of the best princess costumes for every little girl to own and wear.
Cinderella dresses are the most classic of the Disney princess dresses. When you think of a princess, typically the first image that comes to mind includes a Cinderella dress. Little girls love to embrace this princess image! Cinderella’s story is one of the oldest fairy tells around, and has been told in so many ways. The Disney Cinderella dresses are an excellent way to capture the exquisite princess side to this old fairy tale. If your little girl wants to act out the entire story, you can create her a plain servant dress for her to wear. Don’t forget to add the handkerchief in the hair!
Ariel offers two great princess costume options: First, girls can try to recreate her mermaid ensemble, typically over skin-covered clothes. Most Ariel costumes are more of a one-piece outfit, which covers the body. If you’re uncomfortable with your daughter wearing shells, Ariel also has a dress. It’s one of the only pink Disney princess dresses, which makes many girls like it even more. The dress is special because it celebrates Ariel’s chance to be a human girl, and marks the accomplishment of Ariel’s biggest dream.
Thinking pink? The Sleeping Beauty dress is the other pink Disney princess dress. It features a darker pink bodice and long, off shoulder sleeves. The skirt is full and drapes down, and is the epitome of what a princess dress should look like. The dress is topped off with a golden tiara and necklace. Little girls love to twirl and dance in the Sleeping Beauty dress! It brings out the princess in any little girl. If you’re tired of pink, check out the other two Sleeping Beauty dresses. First there is the plain dress with the dark bodice that Sleeping Beauty wears during her time in the woods. While this dress is not traditional princess fashion, it allows for pretend play and acting for girls that want to act of the entire story. The last Sleeping Beauty dress is a pale blue dress that is a replica of the pink one. This is dress that is typically featured on the movie or book covers.
The Snow White dress is the most unique of the Disney princess dresses. This dress features a gold skirt, blue bodice, and red striped sleeves; bright colors that particularly attract younger children. There is no mistaking this princess costume! Because Snow White’s dress is so different from the “typical” attire, it makes the dress seem even more like a real princess dress. The particulars of it make it seem like a more realistic dress for little girls to dance and play in. The colors of the dress, red, yellow, and blue, are the simple primary colors-which shows how beautiful and sweet Snow White is and the virtues she embodies.
While Princess Jasmine is often thought of in her blue two-piece pant suit, she does have a Disney princess dress as well. She wears a lavender dress in the Return of Jafar, and this dress stays true to Jasmine’s fashion, but is fancier than the pants that she wears for most of Aladdin. The Jasmine pant outfit is perfect for any little girl that doesn’t want to conform to traditional princess standards. Disney has created several renditions of this outfit, in a few colors. Dressing up like Jasmine offers girls a chance to feel empowered and enwrapped in a truly magical world.
