Fifties fashion is a an interesting contradiction. On the one hand, it’s a study in wonderful excess: voluptuous curves, wide full skirts, dramatic swing coats. On the other hand, it’s all about control: the need to match everything, wear figure-defining undergarments, and follow strict rules governing appropriateness.
This is beautifully expressed in the Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The main character, Midge, manages to straddle these two poles neatly, in clothing that perfectly evokes the era but manages to feel modern at the same time. Her wardrobe is just gorgeous and very lustworthy.
Have a look:
I had to watch Mrs. Maisel twice, once for the witty dialog and well crafted story and once just for the wardrobe, which will leave vintage lovers breathless.
