11 prom dresses that will make you feel like a Disney princess

Fashion NovaThere are tons of prom dresses on the market that resemble outfits worn by Disney princesses.

Besides Halloween, there aren’t many opportunities to dress up like a Disney princess – that is, unless you’re in high school.

Prom provides the perfect chance to wear a ball gown and dance the night away like Cinderella. You can also wear a mermaid-style dress to channel Ariel, or a sparkling blue gown that’s reminiscent of Elsa. Of course, Disney is also home to characters like Megara and Tinker Bell, who, though they aren’t technically princesses, still have style worth stealing.

From off-the-shoulder dresses to dazzling gowns, here are 11 prom dresses that will make you feel like a Disney princess.
