Travel Finishes First

The Best Fashion Moments From the Time Travel That Is Marvel’s WandaVision

If you’re on any kind of social media, you’ve probably already seen the plethora of memes, fan theories, and video clips from Marvel’s new television venture, WandaVision. The series, which is now streaming on Disney+, is a fresh way of storytelling that I’ve never seen done before (and I watch a lot of TV, so trust me on that one).

I won’t give too much away, but set three weeks after Avengers: Endgame, the story follows Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living a sitcom life in the suburbs of New Jersey that Wanda supposedly created in order to cope with the loss of Vision in the previous film. The show plays with different sitcom-style throughout, and while it takes the filming style and dialogue from each type of show, I’m here to talk about the best fashion moments.

As each episode transports you to a different time period, the series is quite literally a costume lover’s dream. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, head writer Jac Schaffer explained that “The show is a love letter to the golden age of television.” After watching the series weekly, I can agree that his stance stands completely true. And as someone who looks to older TV shows constantly for fresh fashion inspiration, it was a marvel to watch something that incorporated some of my favorite time periods of fashion into one show and put so much effort into matching the aesthetics and details of the era it was mimicking. As vintage trends become more popular in the mainstream, I felt full-on inspired by each 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 less than greatness from the Mexican designer. While you’re waiting for the last episode to air on March 5, take a look below to re-admire the best fashion moments from the series. I even included shoppable options (both new and vintage) if you feel like re-creating the looks.

Inspired by Audrey Hepburn, this boatneck wedding dress was a great way to start off the series.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

H&M x Simone Rocha Silk-blend Cloqué Dress ($299)

Available to shop at H&M on March 11.

Okay, who gave Wanda the right to look this good in a nightgown? Looks like I need to add a feathered gown to my wardrobe soon.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Love Stories Feather-Trimmed Washed-Satin Robe ($210)

Brinker & Eliza Sugarplum Necklace ($168)

Vests are no doubt making a comeback, and this look proves why I’m 100% on board with it. Besides her wedding dress, this has to be my favorite WandaVision-era look.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Pop Pom Vintage 80s Floral Acid Wash Jean Vest ($34)

Vince Cotton Turtleneck Top ($95)

If only you could see the Keds that complete this ’80s look.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Madewell Flannel Westlake Shirt ($88)

As someone who obsesses over Jackie Burkhart’s outfits in That ’70s Show, I had a special appreciation for the looks in this episode.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Beehaus Vintage 1970s ‘River Rouge’ Dress ($35)

Diane Von Furstenberg Tilly Striped Crepe Wrap Dress ($540)

For the Halloween episode, Marvel took a page out of its original comics for Wanda and Vision’s costumes. Be prepared, as I’m sure you’ll see many versions of this red bodysuit come Halloween.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Forever21 Seamless Ribbed Bodysuit ($12)

Leg Elegant 80 Den Microfiber Soft Opaque Tights ($7)

Is it weird that I own an almost exact copy of the vest Vision is wearing? I think it carries as further proof that trends continue to come back around.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Zara Ribbed Knit Vest ($40)

BDG Patchwork Flare Jean ($99)

Who looks this good while preparing a meal? Oh, that’s right—when you’re a superhero who can control things with her mind, I’m sure getting dressed is an easy process. If there’s a dress trend I’d like to see come back, it’s ’60s swing dresses.

Shop pieces inspired by the look:

Unique Vintage Navy & White Pin Dot Prairie Swing Dress ($88)

Erdem Fraser Fil Coupé Twill Midi Dress ($1630)
