The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has won 6 Emmy awards including best comedy series. It is everything a good comedy show should be plus it has the most amazing 1950s wardrobe. Midge Maisel wears high end 1958 New York city fashion with amazing finesse. Her clothing, her hair, her makeup – it is vintage perfection! Costume designer Donna Zakowska sourced true vintage clothing from local shops and online marketplaces (like Etsy.) I am sure her budget was much bigger than yours or mine but that doesn’t mean we can’t achieve a Mrs. Maisel outfit with more reasonably priced 50s reproductions and vintage inspired clothing. All you need to do is decide which outfit you want to mimic and shop! We made it a bit easier by finding the best Marvelous Mrs. Maisel costumes and clothing online for you. Choose a category and begin your unique 50s outfit creation.
