Throwback Thursday- I Love Lucy

Lucille Ball was a comedic genius and she had some great fashion on the show I Love Lucy. We picked this famous redhead for this throwback Thursday in honor of the upcoming St.Patrick’s Day. It’s actually pretty easy to update what she wore as Lucy Ricardo. She had classic silhouettes for her dresses and classic shapes for her accessories. They easily transition into this decade with a few tweaks. It’s all about keeping the shape but choosing an unexpected twist like a different fabric.

For her dresses, stick with the a-line silhouette. Make the look more modern by going sleeveless and choosing a design that doesn’t have a collar. Look for other unique details like cut outs, twists in the fabric, etc.

When accessorizing, look for the same shapes Lucy wore.  A peep toe shoe is a classic style. Modernize it with a different fabric like velvet or suede. Another option is to embellish it with rhinestones for some bling factor. Clutches follow this same method. Pick a classic shape like a simple rectangle. Then try a different material such as faux snakeskin. It takes the purse to a whole new level.
