Cheers to Carla

How it all began

In the fall of 2012, I moved into my first studio apartment. Then I got sick. I had never lived alone and now I had the flu, to boot. After exhausting all reasonable Netflix options, I turned to Cheers. It was a revelation.

Cheers aired its pilot episode three years before I was born and went off the air when I was in 3rd grade. But, no matter. Rhea Perlman’s character Carla Tortelli, with her keen sense of style (read: high-waisted jeans, color-coordinated Nikes and barrettes, and animal-print sweaters), has become, 30 years after her inception, my fashion guru.

This blog charts the outfits of Cheers’ main characters (with an emphasis on dear Carla, of course), from its pilot episode in 1982 to its finale in 1993. It also points you in the right direction for achieving a modern take on the looks of these underrated fashion icons.

Here’s to Carla!

Cheers,

Chloe
