Alright, alright. So Carla Tortelli’s outfit in the 1982 pilot episode of Cheers isn’t the best example of her sharp style. But if you can look past the (brillo pad) haircut and unfortunate (mom pant) pleats, this can be easily reimagined as a cute modern outfit. The bones are all there: a chunky oversized knit sweater, an embellished red tee tucked into high waisted colored denim, and a skinny black belt. Update the proportions and it doesn’t feel like the 1982 recession is just beginning. It feels more like, well, the current recession.
