7 Modern TV Shows for Vintage Style Inspiration

Virginia FrancesComment


I grew up on Nick At Nite. Mostly because my parents were super protective of what our developing little minds consumed and they could really only vouch for the shows they grew up watching. We were strictly a G-rated household and that meant I was totally out of the loop on all the hit 90s shows my friends were talking about: Friends, Buffy, Dawson’s Creek- I had no flipping clue! The plus side though was the vintage fashion schooling I gained at a very young age which has influenced me to this day. I can thank the Bradys, Lucille Ball and Mary Tyler Moore for much of my own sense of style. And I suppose I really have my parents to thank for that. 

While I still watch old movies and tv shows for inspiration, the last few years of modern television have been an incredible time for period-based storytelling and the amazing wardrobe that comes with it. Below are my top seven new(ish) shows for vintage fashion inspiration (in no particular order). These also happen to be some of the greatest productions featuring strong female leads and for that reason too they are some of my all time favs <3


1. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (1958)
