I’ve noticed there’s this trend of late to set shows in the 1950s. So, I decided to compile a list of the top shows set in that era that really deliver, especially on the costume front.
The Crown, Seasons 1 & 2 (2016-2017)
Seasons 1 & 2 span the 1950s and are well worth the watch for all the fabulous mid-century haute couture.
The Bletchley Circle (2012-2014, 2018)
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (2017-)
Do I really need to go into more depth about this amazing show? If you’re not watching it, what are you even doing with your life?
Fargo, Season 4 (2020)
The TV series spun off of the classic Cohen Brothers movie. Season Four flips back all the way to 1950, and it’s absolutely something you should not miss if you’re at all into 1) murder mysteries, 2) Cohen Brothers films, and 3) atmospheric period shows.
Lovecraft Country (2020-)
Are you tired of me talking about this show? Suck it up, because this is by no means the last you will hear of it on this website. We are 2 episodes away from the finale, and I. AM. RIVETED. Stay tuned for a more in depth recap of the costumes.
