Outfit Ideas: How To Channel Fairytale Chic

Aurora may be a Disney Princess but she could easily be your girl-next-door shopping on our high street! The season of Spring and Summer arrived a few months ago which meant that our seasonal wardrobes made a transition as well as the weather itself. We said goodbye to our duller colours and greeted the brighter shades and tones of a sunnier season in our skies and in our clothes rails! In contrast to the menacing and Gothic inspired Maleficent, Aurora's style contains an element of romanticism and is very fairytale-esque. Inspired by her style, I've collaged together some possible outfits for both Aurora and you!

Look 1 

 Don't you just love Summer? No school, hanging out with friends all day and a smile plastered on your face 24/7... if that isn't exciting enough, the clothes might just make your heart flutter like those butterflies prancing around the sky. I love this outfit and inspired by the Pink themes of Aurora, I styled together a pastel colour outfit. Although the Backpack might just stretch a few of our budgets (including mine) the purchase would be totally worth it. I love the Backpack because it's made edgy with its patent texture. Accessorise lightly with some statement sunglasses like these and you'll not only be giving your outfit an extra something, but you'll be keeping those pretty peepers of yours well and truly protected from those dazzling sun rays!

If pretty and pink isn't totally up your street, you can still keep it fairytale-esque with the subtle addition of the popular Spring trend - florals. Florals will give your outfit that romantic-edge without having to go head-to-toe dressed in pretty pastels and pinks. The River Island Floral Print Trousers give your outfit an injection of a darker colour while still keeping it relatively 'girly' with the floral patterning. The Black Peep Toe Sandals and Peggy Shoulder Bag also introduce some monochrome to darken up your outfit even more. However, still inspired by Aurora, the outfit must at least contain a little injection of pink - this Fringe Hem T-Shirt adds a subtle tone of pink keeping the outfit feminine. Introducing further elements of romanticism, accessorise with this pretty Flower Garland Hairband - perfect for the upcoming festival weather!

Using the same trousers as in Look 2, fashion is all about adapting and making pieces work with different outfits - I'm pretty sure even Aurora had a budget like all of us! This look is an example of how a piece of statement clothing can be adapted to create a completely different look. If you want to opt for a more subtle undertone of the fairytale inspired look then this is the outfit for you. The Cateye Sunglasses are statement and bold and along with the Floral Trousers, your outfit will be complete, with edgy pieces that will turn everyone's heads for all the right reasons! Adding lace to your outfit will add instant elegance - and this Crochet Babydoll Suntop adds just the right amount of elegance! Make an entrance like Princess Aurora, classy and sophisticated with just a touch of Urban-chic, with this Leather Drawstring Backpack - who said fashion can't be practical?

Traditionally Aurora would wear dresses, so to honour her traditional style I've updated those frocks for a 21st Century Playsuit - after all, they're way more practical and a safe bet in sudden gusts of forest winds. I love this Floral Trim Playsuit, it's bright and colourful and very classy with the addition of the Purple Toe Cap Pointed Court Shoes. Keeping accessories to the bare minimum (not to make the outfit overly fussy as it's already heavily detailed with patterning), this White Winged Bag is a simple accessory but a gorgeous one at that - plain and simple!

Look 5 

One of Aurora's other favourite colours to wear is blue. This can be seen in Elle Fanning's representation of Aurora in brand new film, Maleficent and in the original animated Disney movie - Sleeping Beauty. So, if you want to avoid pink - why not try blue? This outfit is a light injection of colour. I love the Zara Floral Printed Trousers and I think they might possibly be my favourite Fairytale inspired item. I love the way that they are really on-trend and would be perfect for anyone wanting to update their current wardrobe with a statement S/S14 item, or if you just simply want to dress like fairytale Princess Aurora, these trousers are the purchase for you! The Bleach Denim Shirt dresses down the statement trousers and gives it a casual vibe while keeping it fashionable and edgy with the chunky Lace Boot from Miss Selfridge.
