Growing up my all time favorite movie was Disney’s The Little Mermaid. I had my parents buy me just about every Little Mermaid product ever made. I was one step away of asking my mother to let me wear a red wig to school. Needless to say I’m all on board with the mermaid trend. But unlike the days of The Little Mermaid, you no longer need to wear a red wig, bright green and purple to look like a mermaid. I’ve put together a list of 10 items that will help you achieve the mermaid look without looking like a Disney character.
The outfits above are both from the site Unique Vintage, which sells brands such as Iron Fist, Valfre and Skinny Dip London (FYI: outfit one is currently on sale). I love how the first outfit dives into the mermaid trend (no pun intended). The vintage style skirt is full of details and color. While the second outfit takes more of a minimalist approach. There really is no wrong or right way to be a modern mermaid, you just have to go with the flow (okay that pun was intended).
Here’s a really bad picture of me in my Ariel shirt at Disney this past spring. I wish I would’ve known about Unique Vintage before this trip!
The original modern mermaid- Ariel, I had to push some kids out of the way to take this picture JK ;)
