Well, the whole series sort of exists in a sort of time limbo by now. Even though Shultz increasingly TRIED to modernize the looks of the characters, the way they dressed in the 50's and 60's is how people remember them, and, now that Shultz is no longer at the head calling all of the decisions, it is those looks that they have tended to go back to.nobody charges five cents anymore for a psych visit...
Girls just don't generally WEAR dresses that elaborate day to day or to school anymore, with puffed sleeves and bow sashes. And someone once pointed out to me that, unless her parents have access to a store of site that caters to private schools, Lucy (and Frieda, come to think of it) would have a LOT of trouble finding saddle shoes (both Bass and Spalding now only make batches about once ever five to ten years, since outside private schools that require them, or people looking for them for 50's costumes, no one buys them.)
