We consider Minnie Mouse a classic style icon. Everyone knows the famed mouse‘s style; Minnie’s incredibly cohesive no matter what situation she may be in. Having fun with fashion for over eighty years, we show you Forever 21’s new take on fashion’s favorite mouse and how we dress up using Minnie as our muse!
What We Think Forever 21’s Minnie Muse Collection
Overall, Forever 21’s collection inspired by Minnie Mouse is youthful and fun. For a holiday collection, we think it’s a bit on the casual side and could use more evening pieces but everything is perfect for those cozy holiday mornings when you just want a cup of “haute cocoa.” Puns aside, the collection is very clever in its usage of the iconic Minnie Mouse silhouette. The range in accessories is great, we love the quirky socks and graphic Minnie Mouse patterns that translate onto the sweaters. Minnie is presented as a high fashion it-girl on many of the t-shirts and promotional pictures, and we love how Disney and F21 worked together to give Minnie a new look.
At the store, all the clothes are pretty soft and relaxed with some great beading and sequined details that really stand out against the casual t-shirts.
Top Pick Scattered Minnie Sweater: $27.80, this bell-sleeved cardigan is adorable andthe vibrant color will bring an uplifting feel to any outfit. The pattern hearkens back to Jeremy Scott’s Mickey Mouse themed collection, it’s a very affordable version of the fashion forward look.
Minnie’s Yoo Hoo Get Holiday ready in puffy sleeves and sparkly pieces.
A refined and classic dress gets a little update with a bow + veil headband and monochrome tights and shoes. Holidays are also all about shining, so sequined pants are a standout statement that work for the occasion.
Dippity Do Dot Casual pieces subtly inspired by Minnie and Mickey.
Pick up a Minnie Mouse t-shirt from Forever 21 in the Minnie Muse collection (Iris’ shirt is from F21, but isn’t from the collection) and pair it with chic basics to create a casual yet put together look. Remember, polka dots are always great. Red and black are a classic Mickey/Minnie look, the color scheme is timeless.
Disney Classics Classic chic pieces interpreted in a Minnie fashion.
This is our very obvious and literal interpretation of Minnie. A poofy skirt, cinched waist, and puffed sleeves create such an iconic silhouette of the mouse. Keeping all the accessories a bright red really pops the outfit. (On the main photo, we included a look from two years ago of us as Mickey and Minnie for Halloween!)
