JT is still major preppy boy in these layered collared shirts, man necklace, and casual khakis. Other than that he’s in full Victorian(?) costume for the Dracula play.

Our not-so-sweet radish has appeared in casual wear – such a rarity! The look is very drained of color though. A pale Hawaiian shirt, khaki shorts, long white socks and some kinda Airwalks or somethin. And sadly he got all dressed up for disappointment because Lib and JT wrote an awful song about him.

Oh, ew, yeah this is where JT and Lib finally kiss and then he says he feels sick to his stomach. He’s still doing that preppy-boy style, but come to think of it, no one else is, so I guess it’s significant.

JT and Liberty are thiiiiis close to locking lips and you can just see and feel the chemistry right now. JT is wearing his usual pretty style.

“HELLOOOOO? It’s watermelon!”

Paige time! Like I’ve been saying, I LOVE this era of Paige’s style. Her hair is bomb, her complexion is glowing, and the colors she picks are GREAT. I am living for this off-shoulder, baby blue ruched top, with jeans, silver jewelry, and that textured hairstyle. In yoga, gah I’m sorry but none of these kids are doing it right. Anyway, in yoga, she wears a cute ponytail, a maroon tank, and yoga pants. We get a brief glimpse of that dehumanizing work uniform before we’re back in yoga, in PINK! And finally, Paige is going to the club looking like a 2000s hottie. She wears this cowl neck pink blouse layered over a white cami, because layers were everything. She also has that poof in her hair, which I still do. She’s all accessorized complete with her tiny purse. And she’s wearing KHAKIS to the club.

Tons of Ashley for ya today. And this is really embarrassing Ashley time. She’s just like, part of this band, hanging with the guys, thinking she’s welcome, but actually everyone hates her. That is so sad to me. Maybe because I used to hang out with a high school boyfriend and all his friends, thinkin I was so cool and totally one of the guys, but I was secretly afraid they were like “get her outta here!” She’s just in there with her keyboard, having opinions and stuff, and all the guys are resenting her. Cringe! Ashley never really fully belonged, did she? Even when she was with like Paige and Terri around this time, there was this weird friction. Even her Ellie friendship became tangential and not really cohesive with either of their lives. In actuality, Ashley is kind of a loner, isn’t she? Maybe we’ll just call her independent. Let’s get into the clothes now. Ah, the layers. First is a pink shirt layered under a grey shirt with some light wash jeans. Then is a t-ball tee – this kind of thing was super popular – wearing a shirt that had nothing to do with anything about you. Next is a fushia tee under a grey khaki lokin blazer thing, with a jean skirt and leggings. And finally, she gets kicked out of the recording session by the cowards of Downtown Sasquatch, and wears a jean jacket with casual olive khakis. She took it like a champ though, for real.

This was a FUN episode for real, though. Ellie + Emma + Sean + Jay at the beach? Yeah that will NEVER happen again. lol. Emma still has her thin 90s bangs and wears a capsleeve raglan, exposing the midriff as her capri khakis are nice and low rise. Oh yeah, she also wears a jean jacket. I keep trying to figure out how cold it’s supposed to be on this day. I just don’t think it’s actually very warm.

Welcome to part 2 of Time Stands Still, where shit really goes down. First here’s Alex looking all smug in the classroom thinking all she played a hand in was embarrassment. She wears a brown tank, sunnies tucked in to the front. And the next shot is when she’s realizing something bad is happening. We see her full outfit includes her cross-body bag and some baggy casual khakis. Strange that Alex never spends much time talking about her role in all this. Ya know? I wonder how much guilt she REALLY carried.

Poor Toby, man. He’s sandwiched between bullying and his best friend who is a murderer. He wears one of those polos with the horizontal chest stripe, baggy casual khakis with skate shoes, his usual spiked hair and tiny glasses. He’s also seen afterwards in a red tee and a greyish overshirt.

Yeouch, what a post to come back from vacation with. Sooo yeah, this is Rick before the world is changed forever. First he’s wearing a freaking beret – you may know how I feel about those – with a messenger bag and just a lot of grey. Again, STILL don’t know why he came back to Degrassi all hunky dory, and DO NOT know why he’s smiling right now. The fact he keeps crawling back to each new day thinking things are going to go differently astounds me. Next he’s in a tan shirt over a brown long sleeve and khakis. Hard to imagine he’s about to break.

Okay, and you know what? My fashion commentary is actually appropriate here because this suit, makes me feel. I don’t know WHAT it is about him getting dressed by his mommy in this oversized, clunky, boxy navy suit that makes me want to cry. No one else is dressing up for trivia night – but this is super important to Rick so he’s dressing for it like it’s freaking church. But, he doesn’t fit well into the suit. He doesn’t really have a sense of style. The suit is like, not cute – if I recall, no one would be wearing a navy suit about this time period. But, this was his dad’s suit so it’s extra special. Damn, which makes it hurt even more when the suit gets covered with paint. But let me back track and just say, when someone dresses up for anything, I just feel kind of sad. It’s their way of wearing on the outside how they feel about something on the inside. And aside from all of Rick’s problems, both in his brain and with his social existence, he was excited about trivia and put on this giant dorky suit expecting the best. Maybe that’s why dressing up gets me – they’re expecting the best, ya know? Dressing up looks like hope, like confidence. And to see it all come crashing down, is a little sad on almost anyone. I empathize with Rick, a LITTLE, but don’t excuse anything of course.
