Style Icons: Minnie Mouse
Who is more iconic than Minnie Mouse?
She is instantly recognized by people of all ages around the world. Not only is she the famous girlfriend of the most beloved Disney character of all time, she is adored herself! I love her for the style that is all her own and her peppy personality. She is bold, fun, and fearless, all things we love here at Coco and Duckie.
As far as her personal and unique brand, Minnie's style game is strong. She has worked the same silhouette for decades now, and it never gets old and is constantly re-created. Hers was probably the first ever capsule wardrobe, way before minimalists made it cool. Her vibe is simple: bold polka dots, bright red top, big bow, feminine skirt, and of course, bright yellow pumps.
She embodies the style philosophy of classic core pieces sprinkled with fun, fabulous accents. I enjoy classics in my own wardrobe, too—staples, you could say! She wears all of the basics that we need and want, plus mixing in her own unique touches.
Like every great style icon, Minnie has a "thing" that's all her own. Hers is her polka dots—on her bow and on her skirt, tying her whole entire look classily together and punching it up with just the right amount of fun and answering the question: can you ever have too many polka dots? Of course not! A great fashionista’s look is always an extension of her personality, and Minnie is no exception.
Her outfit represents her bright, bubbly, fun-loving and caring qualities. Plus, her overall simple look rides the line between classy and quirky, making it timeless.
I love to emulate these style rules for my own wardrobe and everyday looks. Minnie Mouse is the perfect mix of ageless and modern. She is bold and unafraid to wear red and a bright print. She is my favorite style icon, because she is just plain fun while still remaining a classic. Who do you look up to in the fashion world?
