    Oftentimes, it's way easier to talk about how great a TV series is in terms of its writing and acting. But, for those of us who are inclined, we can't help but acknowledge the TV shows that really nail the costuming. After all, so much of a show's history — whether it's set stateside or transatlantic — is reflected through what the characters wore.

    That's why we've rounded up 14 period shows that executed their wardrobes perfectly, making these series that much better and more realistic. From the regal Edwardian era to the trippy 1970s, these are the programs that deserve the highest praise for their stitches in time.
