How to Dress Like a Muppet in Real Life!

I can not deny it. I love the Muppets. Always have, always will. They weren’t just a big part of my childhood, but of my daughter’s as well. There are many ways we can pay tribute to these iconic characters. We can watch The Muppets Show, we can watch their newest film The Muppets, and we can dress like the Muppets. Yes, you read me right, we can all dress like the Muppets, and it’s a pretty chic and fashionable thing to do! Check out our collection of Muppets-inspired outfits from Miss Piggy to Kermit to Beaker to the Swedish Chef right here!
