The best fashion moments from the time travel that is Marvel’s WandaVision
If you’re on social media, you’ve likely seen a variety of memes, fan theories, and video clips from Marvel’s new television company, WandaVision. The series now streamed on Disney + is a new way of storytelling that I’ve never seen before (and I watch TV a lot so trust me in this one).
I’m not going to give too much away, but three weeks after Avengers: Endgame the story takes place in the suburbs of New Jersey, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), which Wanda allegedly created to do so to cope with the loss of vision in the previous movie. The show plays with different styles of sitcoms throughout, and while the cinematic style and dialogue of each type of show are carried over, I’m here to share some of the best fashion moments.
With each episode transporting you to a different time span, the series is literally a costume lover’s dream. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, chief writer Jac Schaffer stated: “The show is a love letter to the golden age of television.” After watching the series weekly, I can agree that his stance is completely true. And as someone who is constantly looking for fresh fashion inspiration on older TV shows, it was a wonder to see something that put some of my favorite periods of fashion into one show and went so far as to harmonize the aesthetics and details of the era bring imitated. As vintage trends became more popular in the mainstream, I felt inspired by every costume the characters wore throughout the series.
The show’s costume designer, Mayes C. Rubeo, already has experience in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) with her design for Thor: Ragnorak, so I expected nothing short of size from the Mexican designer. While you wait for the final episode to air on March 5th, take a look below to admire the show’s best fashion moments again. I’ve even added shoppable options (both new and vintage options) if you feel like recreating the looks.
