Style Icon: The Peanuts Gang

We’re absolutely nuts about Peanuts! Charles Schulz’s lovable band of illustrated misfits has been warming hearts since the 1950s, and, with a slew of comic strips, books, and TV specials to their name, this team of tykes has become a worldwide phenomenon. From Lucy’s unfaltering confidence to Charlie’s stubborn insecurity, it’s easy to relate to — and fall for — the quirky personalities of these witty kids.

The characters of Peanuts are known for being wise beyond their years, but equally as smart is the Peanuts gang’s fashion sense — their pension for playground-chic separates, ’60s schoolyard shifts, and saddle shoes result in a look that’s full of casual charm. Style stand-bys such as color-blocking, graphic prints, and girly accents help their simple clothing combos shine without coming across as too cartoony.

    Coincidentally, I was just browsing on polyvore a few hours ago and found these men’s “Blockhead” socks: http://www.swell.com/VONZIPPER-BLOCK-HEAD-SOCK

    If only they came in women’s!

    Great Post! My most loved fall sweater is one from ModCloth that I purchased a few years back. At the time I believe it was called the Charlie Brown sweater but the name was later changed. Every year I can’t wait for fall so I can start wearing it again. I get a compliment on it everytime I wear it!

    There is something about watching Peanuts around the holidays. I love watching the gang with my son for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas….. It is a lot of fun and best of all appropriate for the whole family!
