Calling all Disney fashionistas! In celebration of the release of the new book, DisneyBound: Dress Disney and Make It Fashion by Leslie Kay, creator of the DisneyBound blog, I’m excited to bring you tips on how you and your families can create that perfect, comfy-meets-fashion Disney look while you’re at home. Using items you already have in your own closets, take your loungewear look to the next level while watching some of your favorite movies, shows and shorts on Disney+!

New to Disney bounding? No worries! Disney bounding is defined by Leslie as making street-wearable fashion that reflects and portrays a Disney character or experience and is all about the Disney community coming together for creativity and inspiration, even more so during these unprecedented times.


I don’t know about you, but I’ve been streaming the latest Disney and Pixar film, “Onward,” on repeat since it recently debuted on Disney+. I even partnered up with Leslie Kay herself to show you how you and your families can bring Ian and Barley to life in your own homes without the use of a Phoenix Gem…

You don’t need a wizard staff or hat to cast your spell and conjure up your “Onward”-inspired best! As I mentioned, one of the most unique things about Disney bounding is that you can dress up as and celebrate your favorite Disney characters while using what you have in your closet and still highlight some of the fearless, one-of-a-kind styling choices that the Disney bound community rocks.

Check out an inspiration board below, start digging through your closets and dressers, and get started on your family’s extraordinary quest to become elves yourselves:

Plaid, plaid and more plaid! Leslie shared that the key to Ian’s look is his classic plaid shirt with jeans. No blue hair? No problem! You can use any blue knit hat or baseball cap to add another layer of color blocking. Partner up with the Ian to your Barley by snagging a black knit hat and denim vest, and then gear up for your next quest!

For even more great Disney-inspired looks, check-out Leslie’s new book! Ready to set course for adventure? Join in on the fun by using #DisneyMagicMoments on Instagram to share your “Onward”-inspired looks at home with us.
