Craig time! Yeah, he’s the star of the episode because he has a total breakdown. First we see him in his leftover clothes from the rehearsal – very Albert-looking. Then he’s back in normal Craig clothes, this tee and jeans with Converse and a leather jacket. He begs his estranged friend Marco go to on a manic shopping spree and he buys this beige suit which looks okay. But he loses it. And we see him in a yellow tee and jeans before BAM we are in the hospital, in PJs and this “treeeendy bracelet”.

This is the episode where Craig’s bipolar starts coming out. It’s painful to watch. He starts off wearing a blue tee, leather jacket, loose jeans, and Converse. Then he’s in a blue tee with a lightning bolt on it, and a leather armband. Look at those worn-in Chucks! And then, I stg this looks like an Albert suit. Craig wears this all-brown getup to the rehearsal dinner. I guess this could be Joey’s, he loves wearing all brown too. I grabbed a shot of the mythical Julia Jeremiah’s ring, a triple diamond.

Ashley time… First she’s wearing this 3/4 sleeve boatneck shirt with like, cowboys on it? Low-rise jeans with no back pockets, a grommet belt, a leather bracelet,and this tiny backpack with purple spikes. Then she’s in skirt and leggings – I never liked this type of look where the leggings don’t go all the way down. And here in Ash’s case, she has this blank spot of leg after the leggings and then some tall socks almost reaching up to the leggings but not quite. Weird. Red converse too, to match the red skirt. Spiked belt, and a grey skull and crossbones tank over a black tee. This was almost completely an outfit you would have seen me in at this time as well. I WANTED to dress more like Ellie but ended up dressing more like Ashley if we’re being real. I also featured a closeup of her nails, which look natural, and her minimal makeup. And this image of Ashley spreading her legs on the hotel bed is just… burned into my mind, an ugly, eternal memory…

Oh this is the penis envy episode, JT vs Craig. Hilarious! First, Craig is wearing camo, which is weird. We actually don’t see a lot of camo at Degrassi, do we? Anyway, he’s got a camo tee and a jean jacket. Then I threw in this towel pic for no good reason. We don’t see Craig shirtless very much at all. Actually, we don’t see most people in swimsuits or anything very much. Maybe it’s because Canadian summer is 2 months long at most. My summer is 8 months long soooo I’m a little jealous. Anyway, the final outfit is loose-fitting jeans, worn-out Chucks, and a tee and his jean jacket.

We return to the B-plot: Craig Becomes Rich. He wears his trusty Converse and leather jacket, with typical jeans and tees, and also throws on a jean jacket there at the end. I gotta say, I do really prefer this haircut. It looks so much more, intentional.

Okay, new season Craig. First things first, the hair is SO much better. He actually has like, an intentional cut. It’s kinda weird, it’s like, a tapered, textured, layered, shag. It’s unique, and I think it works. I appreciate it. It’s better than that wild bedhead he was sporting last season. So, his style is just pretty much regular Craig – baggy jeans, Converse, tees, and leather or jean jackets.

You know, sometimes I feel like Craig and Ashley should just leave each other alone. But then I look at Craig’s hair and I also look at his face when he’s laughing at Ashley’s poem and I’m just like nah – Ashley, go get him.

He’s dressed really realistically I think, for a high school “rocker-guy”. Similar to Ashley, his style is subtle yet noticeable. First he wears a red tee under an open button down as well as a leather jacket. Then, idk, more tee shirts and jeans, blah blah, some casual khakis, some Converse, and later a jean jacket.

 Holiday Part 1
Aired: 2003

Ashley is wearing some red and blue rock-n-roll looking shirt that I just can’t decipher. Then she’s practicing with Craig for the holiday talent show, wearing a brownish sweater with a black tee, flare jeans, and converse. She and Craig really had nice standard realistic alt-kid looks. I mean, they think they’re so alt but they’re really not wearing anything extreme, and that’s about right. Ya know? People be like “I had a scene phase” and you see pics and all they did was part their hair to the side, wear a plastic bracelet and Converse. We had to wear diluted versions of our dream styles as teens. But Ash and Craig weren’t too interested in actual fashion at this point, I’d reckon. They were just dressed casually and focused on music. They’d probably still describe their style as rocker or something anyway, ya know? The last outfit is a inter tee with a black cardi, and a leather bracelet for good measure.

Aired: 2003

I know, right? Where’s the thong already? Sheesh. However, it is worth examining the fact that Craig is FINALLY dressing a bit more interestingly. Kinda like, a low-effort rocker guy. First he wears a floppy jean jacket over a sleeveless tee. Note the baggy(ish) jeans and Chuck Taylor Converse. Then we wears an “I Mother Earth” band tee. Which apparently is a Canadian rock band. And finally he’s in a green tee and just, more saggy baggy pants. But be glad there’s no more brown shirts and that yellow camera strap. Unfortunately we don’t get rid of the confused look in his eyes. No, it only gets worse. (See: Season 3. Hang on tight.)
