[Agent Carter] continued the color story from Captain America: The First Avenger. You’ll see Peggy in a lot of red, white and blue, as a silent tribute to her lost love, Captain America. Her trademark look is the red custom ladies Stetson Stratoliner hat, a burst of color in a sea of grey fedoras. Working in man’s world she needed to stand out, and she did that using color in her wardrobe.
