'Wreck-It Ralph''s Pixie Dream Girl Style Is No Game

Disney

Arcade games may be best known for fun, simple action, with crazy imaginary characters and plots, but never did we think that we'd garner so much style inspiration from said characters. "Wreck-It Ralph" throws a medley of video game characters together and, while we love that Ralph is trying to turn over a new leaf, we may love his overalls even more.

Meanwhile, many of the ladies he encounters evoke images of the now-infamous manic pixie dream girl. Which is to say that they are super-snappy, ultra-feminine dressers. We're talkin' killer printed tights and adorable skirt after adorable skirt.

Scroll down and see for yourself.

Even Vanellope Von Schweetz knows a good hoodie when she sees one, and she knows all about how to fab it up. Element Colbie pullover hoodie, $44.50 on Swell.com, and Vince Camuto mesh skirt, on sale for $62.99 on Zappos.com).

We dare you to rock an all-pink look as well as Taffyta Muttonfudge. But, if you're gonna try, consider this Aqua dress, $202.29 on Asos.com, and pair it with these sweet pink Vans, on sale for $34.97 at Tilly's.
