I once read elsewhere that the move away from older fashions was a budgetary thing. Apparently the producers just didn't want to incur the extra expense of period clothing (or the network had really clamped down on their budget).

Off-the-rack stuff available in all sizes was no doubt cheaper than vintage wardrobes, which would likely also need more work in the way of alterations.
