Fabulous Fashion: The Great Mouse Detective Edition

Olivia Flaversham was first in theaters in 1986. So was her adorable bow. Of all the things we love about The Great Mouse Detectiveand there are a great manythe fashion takes the cake. From that bow to Mr. Flaversham’s working outfit to evil Ratigan’s capes, we just can’t get enough.


Allow us to elaborate with our 15 favorite fashion things.


1. Olivia’s bow. We know we’ve already mentioned it, but it’s positioned on her head in such a way that we just can’t handle how great it is.

2. The rest of Olivia’s outfit. It involves a bowtie, Mary Janes, and a plaid-like skirt.

And when she travels, the outfit gets upgraded with a beret and scarf. Yep. A Scarf.

8. Basil and Dr. Dawson’s disguises. One’s a pirate, the other one’s also possibly a pirate. Either way, some excellent dressing decisions are happening here.

10. Fidget’s henchmen-esque attire. Say what you will about his terrifyingness (because he’s the creepiest), but this guy knows how to stay warm while enacting his dastardly duties.
