60 Mermaid Fashion Statements

From Aqua-Inspired Ruffled Tutus to Sartorial Sequins

— October 9, 2011 — Fashion
This top list of mermaid fashion statements speaks to how women have been associated with water and fluidity for centuries. Why? Well, there are critical arguments about how and why women are put into boxes that rely on stereotypes like fluidity and weakness, like the relegation of women to the "second sex" position, as Simone de Beauvoir points out.

Or maybe it's simply the aesthetics and fantasy that attract people to mermaids. 'The Little Mermaid' started as a 19th century fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, and like most good fairy tales, turned into a Disney film (among other consumable spin-offs). And for some time now, mermaid fashion statements pepper the streets, the runway and, of course, little girl's dance recitals.

From aqua-inspired ruffled tutus to sartorial sequins and Titanic trinket fashion, this top list of mermaid fashion statements will have you swimming in glory.
