While Banksy stirs up Dismaland across the pond, there’s a happier, more fashionable effort taking place in SoCal on Friday, September 18th and 19th: Dapper Day 2015 at Disneyland. Dapper Day has been organizing stylish gatherings attended by over 20,000 well-dressed guests twice a year at Disney Resorts in LA, Orlando, and Paris. Paris, folks.
And, “Dapper” isn’t only about vintage flair, either. Sophisticated styles from classic to contemporary chic also mark the bill to round out the communal day in the park a multi-faceted best in show, and with multiple events happening across the board for two days, appreciation for dressing up to go to the park will no doubt be easy on the eyes. Here’s what to expect:
