The massive Disney fandom has millions around the world flocking to Disneyworld and Disneyland theme parks, especially the annual pass holders. The diehard Disney fans love to dress up in costumes but face the possibility of being denied entry due to the somewhat strict regulations prohibiting guests older than 14 from wearing costumes (with the exception of certain Halloween events).

Though older guests aren’t allowed to wear a costume, some fashion-savvy Disney fans invented a fashion trend of creating Disney-themed outfits known as Disneybounding. This unique style trend is a fun way to celebrate your favorite characters without wearing a traditional costume.
A simple way to start exploring this fun trend is color blocking, you can wear similar colors to your favorite character. You can use the colors featured in your favorite character’s costumes, for example, Princess Jasmine from “Aladdin” is known for her light teal jumpsuit, wearing the same color as a dress or a tank-skinny jean combo.

Character-themed accessories can pull a Disneybounding outfit together and is a great way to accentuate color blocking. You can wear similar accessories like your favorite characters or accessories featuring your favorite characters.
A majority of characters have an accessory with nearly all the Disney Princesses having a headband, piece of jewelry, or in Belle’s case a book. You can also wear a bag that features your favorite character or matching the character-themed film reference.

Another way to emulate your favorite character is through matching makeup and hair. You can do your makeup to match your favorite character and style your hair or wear a wig for an easy hairstyle.
