by Caitlin White
If you want to look like a legit princess at prom (because who doesn’t?), why not take inspo from your favorite animated leading ladies, the Disney princesses? Be the literal Belle of the ball in these 13 original prom dresses.
Rapunzel from ‘Tangled’
Let down your hair and rock this stunning, flowing dress in the perfect lavender color to mimic Rapunzel from Tangled. The added bonus of the pickups in the skirt make this ModCloth dress 100 percent princess worthy for prom.
To buy: Heiress of Them All Maxi Dress, ModCloth; $400
Cinderella from ‘Cinderella’
You don’t even need a fairy godmother to get this insanely affordable modern Cinderella look from ASOS. The plunging neckline is so on-point right now, and the color takes inspo from the Lily James live-action version.
To buy: Cami Paneled Thigh Split Maxi Dress, ASOS, $98
Ariel from ‘The Little Mermaid’
You’ll look like you’re legit under the sea in this perfect mermaid-inspired gown from Windsor. Bonus: You don’t have to trade your voice for it, so definitely sing along to all the jams during the dance party.
To buy: Ivy Green Siren Dress, Windsor; $79.90
Jasmine from ‘Aladdin’
Of course, Jasmine would wear a two-piece gown, and this look from Peaches Boutique absolutely nails the Disney princess’ favorite color. The flowy bottom and off-the-shoulder top only makes this dress more Jasmine-inspired. Now all you need are tiger-striped shoes or a purse.
To buy: Mori Lee Two Piece A Line Dress, Peaches Boutique, $298
Elsa from ‘Frozen’
This dress has a literal cape, so that’s basically all that needs to be said. It’s icy white, sparkly, and totally Elsa of Arendelle. Forgive me, but you’ll never want to “let it go” after prom.
To buy: Ivory Illusion V-Neck Prom Dress With Cape, PromGirl, $429
Belle from ‘Beauty and the Beast’
Picture yourself wearing this modernized Beauty and the Beast golden gown while twirling around the grandest ballroom (or your high school gym, no judgment). You’ll be the literal Belle of the ball (ahem, prom).
To buy: Adelyn Rae I Know Your Secret Golden Yellow Maxi Dress, Lulu’s, $117
Mulan from ‘Mulan’
Channel badass Mulan while slaying prom in this kimono midi dress, and your reflection will definitely show who you are inside. (The prom queen, duh!)
To buy: Slinky Kimono Midi Dress Grey, Missguidedus.com, $50.40
Tiana from ‘The Princess and the Frog’
Sure Tiana looked incredible in her sage flower princess gown, but let’s be real: She rocked the 1920s Jazz Age vibe in her flapper dress, and it would be such a fun and unique look for prom. Take a cue from the princess herself, and don’t forget the opera gloves.
To buy: 1920s Style Grey Beaded Deco Illusion Short Flapper Dress, Unique Vintage, $78
Aurora from ‘Sleeping Beauty’
In this Princess Aurora look, it’s all about the Bardot shoulders and sweetheart neckline, which are straight-up magical. Aurora could never decide between her pink or blue princess gown, but we’re on Team Blue, especially in this uber-glam navy.
To buy: Navy Crepe Sweetheart Neck Bardot Tie Maxi Dress, Missguidedus.com, $63
Wendy Darling from ‘Peter Pan’
Don’t tell Wendy she’s not a princess; this is the young woman who made a nightgown look crazy chic. This Nasty Gal wrap dress is the perfect color and has that sleepwear vibe that’ll keep you dancing comfortably all night. You might want to trade the slippers for some heels, but if not, you do you.
To buy: Wrapped Up In It Maxi Dress, Nasty Gal, $88
Esmeralda from ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’
Off-the-shoulder ruffles are so on trend for spring fashion, which means that this Esmeralda-inspired gown is looking on-point. The red, the ruffles that’ll be so fun to dance in, and the A-line beauty makes sure you’ll be attracting all the men and women at prom.
To buy: Tarik Ediz Off the Shoulder Long Prom Dress, SimplyDresses.com, $438
Snow White from ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarves’
Frankly, Snow White was always one of the most fashion-forward Disney princesses, and this embroidered floral dress will make you stand out in the crowd as the fairest of them all.
To buy: Expressive Embroidery Fit and Flare Dress, Modcloth, $149.99
Pocahontas from ‘Pocahontas’
You could dance with all the colors of the wind in this faux suede dress with Pocahontas’ signature one shoulder. Dress it up with a short necklace like our favorite environmentalist teacher, and let that hair flow long!
