The baddie outfit, most famously worn by Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians and now known as one of the signature pieces of Disney’s live-action adaptations, has become iconic in the fashion world and culture at large. This attire has been worn by countless women on the red carpet, though far fewer men have worn them. Whether you’re looking to dress as Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty or Ursula from The Little Mermaid, there are plenty of outfits you can use as inspiration to become the Baddest of them all!
Want to look great and also feel great when you are going to the gym or doing some other activities? Here’s a list of the best baddie outfits for women. We have everything you need to look and feel great while working out. Check out our list today!
Tops and Dresses
Necklines, Capes, and Shoulder Pads: It’s easy to think that vixens are just using their sex appeal to steal our hearts, but when it comes to looking great on a night out, it helps to know what really makes an outfit. So we turned to one of our favorite fashion advisors, Rachel Zoe. The stylist extraordinaire had us thinking about details like shoulder pads and capes and what necklines look best on certain figures. Here, her expert words of wisdom on which styles work for your body type—and why. A V-neckline draws attention to your décolletage; if you have a small bust, pair it with a jacket or wear it with a turtleneck underneath!
Skirts, Pants, Jeans
While skirts are at first glance seen as one of those you either love them or hate them fashion statements, they can be worn by everyone. For example, women with large busts look best in empire-waist dresses or pencil skirts. Pairing a skirt with a full bodysuit is also an option for larger chested women who want to minimize their breasts and highlight their waist.
Jackets and Coats
Black is always in style. Especially when it’s paired with another ominous color, like purple or red. If you need more inspiration for your wardrobe, look to some of pop culture’s most recognizable baddies: The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians (cartoon and live-action version), Cate Blanchett as Hellewise in Thor: Ragnarok and Ravenna from Snow White and The Huntsman.
Shoes and Boots
For a kick-ass baddie, you need kick-ass boots. No exceptions. You need something with a sturdy heel, as it will allow you to tower over your foes. And, of course, make sure they’re super-stylish—the last thing you want is for someone to go up against you in fabulous shoes and then trip over his own two feet. And heeled boots are a must! Knee-highs are perfect if you plan on wearing these in winter.
