35 Fairy Tale Fashion Styles

Celebrate the Birthday of the Brothers Grimm with These Darling Finds

— December 20, 2012 — Fashion
To celebrate the birthday of the Brothers Grimm, these fantastical fairy tale fashion finds blend make-believe with reality for superb results.

The Brothers Grimm were writers in the 19th century who created some of the most classic tales ever written including Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Rapunzel and The Frog Prince, among several others. These tales come to be the inspiration for the fantasy fashion shoots, spreads, editorials and items you'll find here that range from dream-like to darkly sinister.

Each style draws a specific fairy tale characteristic that helps to accentuate the overarching theme that is trying to be reinforced; fashion is a playground where dreams become reality and even some realties become dreams.
