10 Things You Need If You Want To Be A Real-Life Mermaid

Let’s be real – we’ve all daydreamed about being Ariel from the Little Mermaid, right?

She’s been giving us hair goals since the age of three, and we’re pretty sure that she got the ball rolling with our obsession of shiny objects. Because if your bedroom doesn’t look like the contents of Ariel’s cave, are you actually okay?

Now, thanks to a combination of the great british high street and the world wide web, our wishes are a little bit closer to actually coming true.

We mean, just look at these beautiful under-the-sea-style buys…

1. Make a splash


ASOS Private Party Mermaid Swimsuit, £65

We can’t actually conjur up a mermaid tail (where’s our Fairy Godmother when we need her?), but this shiny swimsuit is the next best thing.

And it’s the colour of the ocean. Winning.

2. For dry land


The Ragged Priest Mom Jeans With Mermaid Patches, £75

Topshop MOTO Mermaid Sequin Boyfriend, £60


Unfortunately, even as mermaids, we still need to go about our normal day.

So that’s why THESE jeans exist.

3. Shells aren’t just for covering our lady business

Sorry Ariel, but there’s a much better use for them.

Hello, shiny shell clutch…

4. For when we want to tame those AMAZING mermaid locks…

Are you noticing the theme here?

7. Mermaid Martini

8. The shirt of dreams…

Now all that’s left is to wave goodbye to our bank balance.


Well, mermaids don’t need money anyway…
