Since this IS the first episode of the season, after all, I suppose they’re trying to make sure everyone gets an appearance. Y’all know I LOVE Ellie in red, so I find this outfit wonderful. I also have been curious about this hair for years, and I finally get to talk about it now. It almost looks as though strands of Ellie’s hair have been meticulously twisted to look like this. You know what I mean? Anyway, sadly we don’t really get to see this outfit but aside from the red choker and chain, I can make out an off-the-shoulder mesh shirt with either overalls or a penafore, and arm warmers with red detailing. Such a look! The other outfit shows hair clips, a graphic tee, and chain necklace.

Heck yeah, prime Ellie fashion in a nice hefty gallery today. Have I said this before? I like Ellie and Sean together. It just works. Even though Ellie has a “bad” image but isn’t really a bad girl, whereas Sean IS a bad boy, I think they’re strangely compatible. She’s in her braids phase but I think it’s super cute. The first outfit, we are in the shadowy auto shop, so all I can really make out is a leather jacket and a lot of cool necklaces. The next outfit features those inside-out seams that are coming back as I write this. She layers a couple of tops over a mesh long sleeve. She also wears her “psycho-girl” back back and her Ellie wedge boots, with a jean skirt. The jean skirt has also come back, because people are like obsessed with “Y2K”. This NEXT outfit is serious. In the best way. A red and black tee over red mesh sleeves, complete with a red collar. And then she’s wearing what I like to call the patchwork British flag shirt, with a plaid skirt and that famous triple-grommet belt. Actually, these combinations aren’t really my favorite because I prefer when Ellie incorporates more vibrant colors, like that red. I don’t care about these white and pastel and floral accents.

First, Ellie is wearing that famous “bloodstained” shirt, with black fishnet sleeves, lots of jewelry, and her side pony. Next she’s in a lacy blouse over a red bell sleeve shirt, with her high-knee wedge boots. And lastly, we don’t really see this outfit well but it seems to be a fishnet jacket with pleather detailing. It’s a shame we can’t see it well. Oh yeah, and if you would like to see her in the Hell Hath No Fury shirt, peep Ashley’s spread for this episode.

Don’t Dream it’s Over

Today I deliver to you loads of Ellie in one of her best fashion phases! So this is the episode where she’s a new girlfriend but doesn’t quite understand that being a girlfriend involves spending some alone time with the boyfriend. So let’s break down these ‘fits, shall we?

First, we have the FAMOUS Ellie side-pony for this entire episode. The first outfit is a black tank layered over black long sleeves, and accessorized with a statement belt and lots of spiky jewelry. I swear, this was my absolute dream wardrobe in high school. I didn’t quite have the resources to accomplish exactly that look but this is right up my alley. I forgot what the skirt is made of but it looks like tulle. I also got a shot of the back of her hair which features some braiding. I wonder if Ellie did that herself? Cuz we know her momma didn’t.

For the date, she wears an elegant long trench coat over a red blouse. The next fit is a zip up hoodie and some camo, over which we are again blessed with that trench. We also see the famous Ellie wedge boots. I swear, she is such a fashionista, I actually think it’s strange no one ever comments on her wardrobe.

And lastly, I just realized that the final outfit is… the same as the first outfit!

Yay, we made it to the Breakfast Club episode! We get a lot of Ellie in her traditional colors. Here’s the detention outfit broken down from head to toe. Her hair is pulled half-up. She’s got several hoops in her ears, and a few chained, grommeted, and spiked necklaces. She wears a leather jacket atop a pink-ringed tank and a spiderweb mesh long sleeve. Around her wrists are studded sweatbands. She wears a pleated plaid skirt, black pants, and chunky black shoes. And of course, she carries her bag of secrets. She totally blows things with Sean and her reconciliation outfit is AWESOME, because I love Ellie in red. We don’t get to view the whole outfit from afar but it includes a red tee, jean skirt, and studded belt.

Ellie wears her hair pulled half up, lots of jewelry, and a strange combo today. A greenish plaid dress, mesh sleeves, and red and black arm warmers. Must be laundry day.

Ellie is seen looking surprisingly festive for a brief moment at the Christmas talent show thing. Atop her usual attrite of spikes, black, and chokers, she wears a Santa hat.

Pictures you can hear – “I packed too much. I always pack too much.” Ellie wears her famous side pony, that red cutoff tee that I always think is a New Balance shirt, and long sleeves underneath, with a pencil skirt and leggings.

 Whisper to a Scream
Aired: 2003

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.

 Pride
Aired: 2003

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.
