No, we're not joking. The R29 editorial department has been experiencing sort of a collective obsession with all things Mickey Mouse lately, from stalking vintage Mickey sweatshirts on eBay to actually taking a trip down to Orlando with the ulterior motive of finding some loot. We can't help it — Mickey's graphic iconography, the sporty-kid silhouettes it's found on, and the retro-quirky throwback it connotes feels so right this winter, and there are plenty of buy-it-now pieces to shop for, STAT.
The key to making Mickey work outside of the playground is to wear it with grown-up textiles and sophisticated accessories, like tall heels, luxe leathers, structured jackets, and body-skimming skirts. Plus, you weren't the only family making trips to Disneyworld in the '90s — with a little digging at your local thrift shop, you're bound to find Mickey hidden among the racks.
