Wouldn’t it be great if we all had a Mary Poppins in our life? Someone who makes the kids enjoy doing their chores and sing Super-Cala-Fragilistic-Expialidocious while whipping up a delicious dinner. Ahh the life.

Over the course of the film, Mary Poppins (never just Mary) wears quite a few jackets from peacoats to victorian jackets in black or navy – gray works too! So using any of these pieces will work for the costume look. We love that this is fashionable enough that you could wear it even when you’re not pretending to be Mary Poppins.

A key part of the costume is Mary Poppins red bow tie but it doesn’t have to be a tie specifically, tied ribbon or a DIY bow will work just as well.
