Dapper Day, which happens twice a year at Disneyland, dropped in for its fall appearance this Sunday. As expected, park-goers were decked out in their most polished attire. The gentlemen dusted off their trilbies and their three-piece suits. The ladies were draped in colors that ranged from the gentle hues of sea-foam green, to the attention grabbing shades of red. And everyone in between brought their sartorial A-game to make a statement.

There were some inventive Disney cross-over outfits, too. One man dressed up as Woody from Toy Story, and several people did a riff on the Mouseketeers' sweater. Curiously, there were a couple of Jafar-inspired looks, and one couple showed up as R2-D2 and C-3PO (if the two droids were attending the Met Gala).

Dapper Day is a relatively new event; it'd started back in 2011. If you think that the day is a anything-goes type of deal, you're mostly wrong. As noted at the event's website: "We do not aim to recreate a specific period. All sophisticated attire is encouraged from vintage-inspired classics to chic contemporary looks. Active and retired military are encouraged to wear your dress blues or service uniforms if you like. (Please note costumes or cosplay are better suited for other events.)."
