1. Jasmine — Aladdin (1992)

When it comes to princesses, Jasmine is the one who wears the pants. Literally. She's a bad bitch who knows how to accessorize and do a mean cat eye. But yes, I hear you — wearing a bra top and voluminous pants doesn't make as much sense outside the palace walls. Instead, try rocking a statement-making jumpsuit in Jasmine's gorgeous go-to mint shade. And don't forget the gold jewels.

freepeople.com, forever21.com

Get the jumpsuit from Free People for $299 (available in sizes 0-12 and in two colors) or a plus-size option from Rainbow for $16.99. Get the choker from Forever 21 for $4.95 (available in two colors).

Bonus: To get a cat eye so flawless even your pet tiger would approve, try using an eyeliner stamp. Get one from Amazon for $9.19.

2. Ariel — The Little Mermaid (1989)

So the thing about Ariel is she doesn't actually wear a lot of clothes, at least not when she's under the sea. She basically just has a purple bra and a green tail, but that combination of jewel tones is something I totally want to be part of my world. Rocking it in the form of a high-waisted underwire swimsuit works for those of us without fins. And you wouldn't want to go anywhere without your protective crab chaperone, would you? This little bag won't nag as much as the actual Sebastian, but will hold all your gadgets and gizmos aplenty, not to mention your whosits and whatsits galore.

3. Belle — Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Listen, I love Belle's iconic yellow gown as much as anyone. But can we take a second to talk about her classically chic casual wear? Of course Belle is posh — after all, dear, this is France — and the styling of this look is as clever as the future princess herself. A sleeveless A-line dress is a closet staple (especially in a comfy fabric like denim), but it becomes even more versatile if you try popping it over simple tops. A white button-down is a polished choice, but it'd look equally great over a white tee on chill spring days. Either way, you'll be ready for adventure in the great wide somewhere.

4. Rapunzel — Tangled (2010)

I can't believe we had to wait until 2010 to get a Disney princess who rocks the most regal of all hues, purple. An orchid-colored dress with chic sleeves and pretty details is just what you need to get you in the mood to leave your tower — er, apartment — and go let your hair down. And speaking of hair, you don't need a magic flower to get locks that luscious. Try some gorgeous, super-easy clip-in extensions that over 2,000 reviewers swear by. At last, I see the (fashion) light.

5. Tiana — The Princess and the Frog (2009)

Tiana wears a lot of great dresses in during her time as a human in The Princess and the Frog, from the yellow frock she rocks to work to the gown she wears to Charlotte's party. But they all pale in comparison to her nature-inspired wedding gown, which is excellent inspo for any big event you have coming up, from prom to a schmancy party. Pale green is a truly under-appreciated color that can look just as magical IRL, as this embroidered, illusion-paneled stunner proves. And Prince Naveen is excellent arm candy whether he's in human or amphibian form, so why not represent him with a cute frog-shaped purse? Now you're more than almost there — you've arrived.

unique-vintage.com, tjmaxx.tjx.com

Get the gown from Unique Vintage for $168 (available in sizes 4-12) or a shorter style available in sizes up to18 from Prom Dress Shop for $149. Get the bag from T.J. Maxx for $16.99.

Bonus: For an updo as glam as Tiana's, embellish your tresses with a regal crown-shaped hair comb. Get one from Amazon for $9.29.

6. Cinderella — Cinderella (1950)

When you hear someone say they "feel like Cinderella," it's basically synonymous with feeling glam and confident as hell. And you absolutely don't need a fairy godmother or mice who are strangely good at sewing despite their lack of opposable thumbs to pull that off. Allow me to work my magic and suggest a floofy fit-and-flare number with a beautiful lace overlay and a classic, structured bodice to bippity-boppity-boot. Glass slippers may be a tad impractical, so opt for a blingy lucite pair instead — they're so pretty, no prince or curfew is worth leaving them behind.

modcloth.com, amazon.com

Reviewers say to size up in the shoes so that when the prince comes calling, they're actually a ~perfect fit~.

Get the dress from Modcloth for $175 (available in sizes 2-26 and in six colors). Get the heels from Overstock for $49.56 (available in sizes 6-12) or from Amazon for $54.95+ (available in sizes 5-12).

Bonus: Really be the belle (or Cinderella, rather; Belle is from a different movie) of the ball with elbow-length gloves. Get some from Unique Vintage for $16.

7. Aurora — Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Aurora may be one of the oldest princesses in the Disney canon, but she was ahead of her time with her layering game. Don't sleep on the idea of layering a strapless top or bustier over a shirt, because it's chic as shit. You can make a look like this with things already in your closet or snag a top that actually has the layered look built in — I'm betting this stretchy tee is way comfier than the corset situation Aurora's got on. Add a swishy midi skirt and you're ready to dance with woodland creatures and handsome strangers.

8. Snow White — Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1938)

Explain something to me: how has Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs been out for EIGHTY YEARS, yet blue and yellow has never really caught on as a color combination? Whistle while you work to correct that injustice in a swingy colorblocked dress. In terms of accessories, you don't need to go all out with a high, jeweled collar to be the fairest of them all — just take a cue from the original Disney princess and slip on a pair of bright bow flats (they're vegan-friendly, so all the creatures of the forest will approve). Now get ready to be the apple of everyone's eye.

Yes, it's a bold fashion statement, but I know you're brave enough.
