Wow, this may be the most images I’ve ever included in one post. But, this is an Ellie episode, and I’m a sucker for Ellie fashion, so we’re doing this! This episode is really heavy material but we are just going to “skirt” around that and talk about fashion only, okay?

Ellie is known for combining various elements together and putting an edgy twist on them. So first we have a lace shirt under a leather vest, paired with arm warmers and a choker that feature pink detailing. And her braids will be an Ellie staple for a while. Honestly this ‘fit is a little clumsy to me and doesn’t quite work.

Next up, is an Ellie ‘fit for the ages. The white 3/4 sleeve tee with splits and buckle detailing. This is 100% something I would have worn, not that anyone’s asking. She accessorizes with spiky, chainy, chokery necklaces. She wears a red plaid pleated skirt that has some kind of suspender or strap hanging off. We also have fishnets and these amazing chunky wedge boots. It’s an amazing look and a real shame that Paige spilt something on it. She dons a big yellow raincoat for her interview with Caitlin.

Next, a brief glimpse of casual Ellie in a PJ shirt. And at school, another ensemble I love to worship. More chunky boots. Black leggings. Mesh. And a piece that I’m like 90% sure is by Tripp NYC.

Next, that white and bloody shirt over a black long sleeve with exposed seams of green. And then… AAAAH the red and black stripes, just soooo 2000s mall goth and I am living. We see a couple more outfits very briefly just to show that time is passing. So let’s skip ahead to…

The camo outfit. Cargo skirt. Grommet belt. Camo vest. Black long sleeve and arm warmers. Again, quite strange, but somehow, I’d like to say that this one works. Also featuring Ellie’s backpack which is not alt-looking at all.

Okay, real talk. Is it just me or is Ellie acting REALLY weird and unsympathetic about Marco getting assaulted? I’m to this day still confused about this little bit. Okay, so as I understand it, Marco doesn’t tell people he got beat up for being gay. Apparently he tells people he got “swarmed for his shoes”. And up until this very moment, I thought he meant he got beat up because his shoes looked gay. Is he trying to tell people he got beat up so people could steal his shoes? See, all of this sounds absurd. So I guess I understand why Ellie doesn’t know how to act. STILL though, she could be a bit more loving.

Ellie wears layered black shirts with what seems to be a full-length skirt made of green and black patches. She wears a choker and is faithfully sporting the pigtail braids. I love pigtail braids but I feel like they make me look like a little girl every time I wear them. Next is more black layers, layers of necklaces, and some kind of orange skirt too. Her brows are looking very 2000s. And finally we get a small glimpse of whatever she’s wearing while Snake gets his head shaved. Can’t really make it out but there’s definitely a lime-green seam on her sleeve. Do y’all remember, especially Hot Topic clothes, would have those inside-out seams, oftentimes a cool color like that?

When I think of Ellie, my first thought is usually referencing her in this episode. For two reasons: 1, her style is iconic here on this day. And 2, I completely relate to the way she feels here in this episode. It’s almost, potentially, social anxiety. I mean, I know the script probably intends for us to think she’s just all bent out of shape over Marco. But I see more than just that. I see a girl who blatantly doesn’t fit in. A girl who questions her outfit as soon as she steps outside and sees the people she’s with. A girl who wants to have fun but doesn’t know how, like she can’t find that lightswitch inside of her to switch “fun” to “on”. A girl who’s there, physically, but not contributing to the socialization, and not necessarily wanted. I relate to that feeling all too well, of wanting to have fun, to be fun, but not knowing how. What can she possibly say to this group of friends chatting? Nothing. You know?

I wish it was social anxiety in the script. Instead it’s just “I’m mad at Marco so this isn’t fun”. lol. Whatever. Anyway, so let’s talk about the clothes. First of all who tf goes to the beach in this? I gotta admire her commitment to the aesthetic though. El wears pigtail braids, a sleeveless collared shirt with crisscross tie down the front, mesh sleeves and arm warmers, a choker, a plaid skirt, leggings or pants underneath, and black wedge boots. And a big FROWN y’all! “I couldn’t let my HONEY come here by himself.” Girl, yes you could omg.

Again, one of my captured images got corrupted but I’m sure it was just a reiteration of this ‘fit – Ellie starts doing some side pony looks in S3 and I live for it. Here she is an a fishnetted, grommeted getup with black eyeliner and a super cute side half-pony.

My girl is in RED again! Yes! Ellie time! She’s still wearing funky updos featuring crimped hair. I just love this first look. I’m sad we don’t get more of it. It’s a white tank which is some kind of athletic + Hot Topic fusion, and i think this might be the shirt with the fake blood stain on the front. She wears it over a red long sleeve and with a red choker. Then she serves more athletic + Hot Topic fusion in this shirt that I swear looks like a New Balance shirt but I guess it’s not. It’s DIY distressed and worn over a mesh long sleeve, paired with a black skirt and her grommet belt. I swear, I don’t understand why Stacey Farber did not convert to this wardrobe IRL after being dressed in these amazing ensembles on the show.

How Soon is Now
Aired: 2003

This is the painful episode where Ellie is dying for Marco to reciprocate her love. Thankfully we get an Ellie fashion show while we endure the plot. First, she wears her floral British flag shirt with crimped hair and a headband. She wears it with a pleated plaid skirt and that grommet belt, and either leggings or skinny flare pants. Outside she wears a leather jacket. Oh, how I miss the feeling of cold air (it’s sweltering summer as I write this). The next ‘fit is a black boat neck sweater, beaded headband, frosty eyeshadow, and spiky/chunky necklaces. And the final outfit is a shirt of tans and blues, but that’s all we can make out of the ensemble.

If Ellie is accented with pink, purple, or red, I am happy. So today we get some nice purpley vibes incorporated into her look which consists of a leather jacket, an updo, and a pleated plaid skirt over some black flares.

Ellie wears a jean skirt, grommet belt, a long sleeve tee with a watercolory print of browns and blues, and a black  tank over the top. She accessorizes with a silver pendant, purple eyeshadow, and crimped hair. Always looking awesome. (Til she gets to college and borings out.)

This is one of the greatest Ellie looks in my opinion but she’s only here giving us one line for one brief moment. She’s got an elaborate updo accented with a purplish color and many small braids. She wears a black leather vest over a red shirt. Her makeup is heavy today and she of course wears a lot of jewelry. So cool. Makes me want to spend more time on my appearance a little. I can’t make out what her bottoms are exactly but it looks to be a black skirt.

This is a very important post. Why? Because Ellie has three pigtails. Three pigtails is one of Degrassi’s greatest silent shames. I’m surprised how many times I’ve seen this happening. One of my mom’s favorite stories to tell is about the time I asked for 3 pigtails to go to kindergarten. Because it’s absurd and hilarious. And for some reason, these 2000s city kids have made the absurd and hilarious choice to wear 3 pigtails. Aside from that, Ellie has done some interesting combinations today. As I say, I love her in red. So I’m glad to see her in this red bell-sleeve top, under a cropped black tank, loaded with jewelry, and wearing a floral skirt and her large grommet belt. It’s definitely a look. Okay and I joke about the 3 pigtails. She actually pulls it off.
