Trendy Costume Idea: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Amazon's hot new tv show is the fun inspiration behind this costume idea. Mrs. Maisel is a late 1950's housewife turned stand-up comic. She dresses in the fabulous fashions you'd expect to find among the upper class in New York in 1958, when the show takes place. Here are some costume piece ideas for a DIY Mrs. Maisel look for Halloween this year.

This red felt cap is a retro style right out of Mrs. Maisel's time. The imitation wool bucket hat has a matching felt flower embellishment. It's best to pick a hat to match the color of your dress for this costume.

3 1950s Style Contrasting Chiffon Scarf
