Oh man, it’s time for Marco’s moment. First he’s in a zip up jacket, hoodie, and some kind of like comic book shirt. Also shout out the soul patch, don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it before, but there it is, looking itchy. Next Marco is in just a standard graphic tee with something random & unrelated on it, and I like his hair like this – curly and tucked behind the ears. He’s also seen helping with the blood drive in casual khakis and this red blood vest. Oh yeah, he’s being told he can’t give blood because he’s gay. Yeesh. Next, the outfit continues on, and we’re in Dylan’s dorm. Here we can see that these casual khakis are also FLARED! Shoutout to Marco’s flares, I feel like no one ever mentions them but I am such a fan of men in flares. I was hoping it would come back big time for men when flares circled around in the late 90s/2000s, but sadly it was mostly girls wearing them. Marco also seems to have this decorative belt on his waist, and lugs around a messenger bag. And he freakin walks in on Dylan with another guy. And Dylan’s like, “Oh hey Marco!” Brutal. Marco tries his best to suck it up, so he appears at the dorm party in an orange sleeveless tee with flare jeans. Oh yeah and plants a smooch on Craig. Our last look is Marco in a dark long sleeve, with hair hair still big.
Yippee, we enter the year 2005 with a new episode and Alex! She’s wearing her usual, a white tank with hoop earrings, casual khakis, and her bra straps hangin out. Then she classes it up a bit, with her hair clipped up and a brown tee. It’s a totally different look. She’s also sporting her cross-body bag and tucks her shades into her shirt just like Paige does. Probably because your hair will get stuck in the nose piece if you wear them on top of your head.
Emma is all recovered from her gonorrhea, but the reputation lives on. She looks really pretty here in class wearing some layered tanks and a skirt. Chris insults her, and then outside, she really truly does look upset. She wears a khaki jacket and looks freaking exhausted. Next we get a closeup of the toes – which is here because nail polish IS fashion, right? And she wears a pink robe, then a large white shirt for tie-dying. Wait, why are we tie-dying in white? Whatever. She’s also got on khaki capris. For ninja night she wears some dark athleisure. And finally, it’s practically all-khaki-everything with this jacket, skirt, and tan shoes. The dynamic between her and Chester was interesting. I love how she was so unintimidated by him, wish we could have seen more.
Chester is interesting enough I guess. I kind of like the dynamic of him playfully messing with Emma, because literally nobody does that. Because she’s so uptight. But Chester doesn’t care! First he’s seen in his navy short sleeve button down and jeans. Then he’s playing with his hot brothers in a grey graphic tee. And finally, he’s wearing a preppy getup of a brown sweater over a yellow collared shirt with dark khakis… or are these corduroys?
I honestly am surprised this is the FIRST appearance of Chantay, the girl who goes to Degrassi for 10 years! She really came in with a bang, ya know? You’d think she’d become more of a main character, or at least a long-term member of this little group that forms for this episode only. But no, she kinda falls to the side, despite ALWAYS being there. First off, we see her scowling in her Spirit Squad uniform. Then she’s in this brown and yellow diagonal color block shirt with ties at the shoulders. Next she’s at Emma’s for a spa day, wearing a purple robe. But when she finds out heartthrob Chester lives nextdoor, she quickly dons a khaki pencil skirt and yellow Lululemon looking top set. A final wardrobe change puts her in a black getup since the girls are going all ninja to sneak 20 feet to the right to prank Chester’s house.
Ya know, I always think of Queen of Hearts as the Ellie + Alex episode, but it’s also quite big on Paige. I love how she looks in S4 – her hair, her grungy eye makeup. First she wears this tiny tee with a chihuahua on it. It looks like its name is “Chichi” lol. Next she’s at the movies with Matt. She wears casual flare cargo khakis, and ulta-low yellow cowl neck over a white shirt, and a random pink cowboy hat, which I kinda love. But in all actuality this outfit is pretty much awful. I mean, look at the size of those pockets on the khakis. Was she using those pants to smuggle food into the theatre? I guess, cuz ain’t nothing fitting into that mini purse. The next outfit, I love. It’s this gorgeous white off-shoulder top with flowers on it. Also, low rise janes and some kinda statement belt as per the 2000s requirements. And lastly, Paige wears her brown, scratchy work uniform and sneaks in a call on her flip phone.
I love this episode and I love that we get to start off with Alex. Alex is being quite the social butterfly, playing cards with her classmates. She is still dressing colorlessly, sporting the long black bob, hoop earrings, a brown zip up hoodie, baggy casual khakis, and Timberland-lookin boots.
So yeah, this is where Spinner comes face to face with his guilt as Jimmy returns to school. Even though Spin is scum, this IS him looking his best for sure. His hair still slaps, and he wears tees with baggy pants including casual khakis, and that ball bearing necklace. I also got a shot of his tongue ring for your viewing pleasure. This pic of him in his basketball jersey gives me so many feelings. He looks so clammy. But also he looks so happy, in a way that I feel kinda sorry for him. But anyway, he sucks!
JT time! This second shot is definitely one of those “pictures you can hear” – Why didn’t ya tell me my butt was so big? JT is wearing an assortment of open button downs over tees, with casual khakis or baggy jeans. And of course we also see here a polo shot and the swimsuit. And his hair is shaggy 2000s boy like always.
