Fashion Inspiration From The Film Saving Mr. Banks

I was a child the first time I saw Mary Poppins. Julie Andrews was so talented and pretty. The songs were so charming, and the outfits were as magical as the story lines. How fun was it to dress like the characters in the movie? I had a pretty white parasol and would pretend to dance with penguins. That fun doesn’t have to stop as we grow up. With the release of Saving Mr. Banks, we can be inspired by Mary’s fashion once again.

As adults, Saving Mr. Banks re-engages us with these cherished characters and  introduces us to new ones. The author of Mary Poppins, P. L. Travers, has a prickly personality and it’s reflected in her character’s wardrobe. She wears stuffy suits, proper patterns, and prim accessories. Can we talk about the men’s fashion in this movie? From Walt Disney to the Sherman Brothers, the men are dressed in elegant, classic suits, thin ties, and polished accessories.

Being a fashion gal, the highest compliment I can give, is that it is inspiring my own fashion choices. I especially love to bring meaningful pieces into my wardrobe that aren’t just fun and on-trend, but also say something about where I’ve been and what creative, artistic things have touched me.

This beloved musical almost wasn’t a musical. In fact, it almost wasn’t made into a film at all. If you see Saving Mr. Banks, you’ll explore the history and heart behind this classic, and while you’re there, take in the fashion.

Below are 8 looks inspired by these characters and tips on how to incorporate these pieces into your everyday look.
