Cinematic Fashion: The Sound of Music |

The 1965 film “The Sound of Music”, starring Julie Andrews, is a classic story of love, hope and bravery. The musical film is a period piece, based in the 1940’s. The story follows the lives of the Von Trapp family and their new governess, Maria (played by Andrews) during the beginning of the Nazi occupation of Austria, where the film takes place. The movie definitely has a bit of a 1960’s flair in the costume color scheme that includes a lot of earthy browns, greens, and yellows, popular of that period.

Maria’s look in the film is simple until she moves in with the family and sews new, fancier clothing for herself. She always wears ladylike garments that accentuate her waist, a look that was very 40’s appropriate. Her wide straw hat is an iconic look throughout in the film, especially when she first arrives at the Von Trapp mansion with her carpet bag and guitar.

To get Maria’s look, pick 40’s-inspired pieces including collar-less linen jackets and simple, feminine dresses.

Don’t forget your straw hat or guitar, and if you’re lucky enough to score a carpet bag at a thrift store, go all out! Keep your hair and make-up simple for a natural look evoking Maria, and throw on some ladylike heels or more casual flat boots.
