Nancy is well-known for her unique dress up style, which might appear difficult to imitate by some. So we are going to present you with general guidelines for building a Fancy Nancy dress up trunk filled with fun and frilly dress up clothes just like what Fancy Nancy would wear. The first rule when creating a Fancy Nancy dress up trunk is this: nothing should match. Rule number two: everything should have either feathers, marabou, jewels or ribbons decorating it. The more blinged out the clothes and accessories, the better! And finally, the boas. There are never too many boas. Plenty marabou and feather boas of all colors is the Number 3 most important rule for dressing like Fancy Nancy.

For those that are well-acquainted with Fancy Nancy, you are probably well aware that she is infatuated with butterflies. Choosing dress up clothes and accessories that include butterflies would be a great addition to your dress up trunk. Possible items to include are: butterfly slide dress up shoes, butterfly sunglasses, butterfly tiaras and of course butterfly wings.

What would Nancy wear on her head? Well, a Fancy Nancy fashion look-a-like requires a magnificent pair of sunglasses. Fancy Nancy enjoys butterfly or cat-eye sunglasses. On top of her head, the number one accessory must be a beautiful jeweled golden tiara. Nancy has multiple hair accessories on at all times. Jeweled and marabou tiaras, big butterfly or flower hair clips, headbands with big bobbly stars or butterflies springing off of them are all great choices. Finally, a georgous big floppy brimmed hat decorated with marabou or silk flowers is the final head accessory for your Fancy Nancy trunk.

Moving on to the Fancy Nancy dress up clothes, Nancy is known for her unique style of paring leotards, tutus and lacey leggings.
