Emma is still all Lululemon-chic in this first shot of an olive tank. Then she’s in a zipup top with a cami underneath, and I believe a jean skirt. The next outfit is a baby blue tank and low-rise jeans. Oh yeah, and also some Vans, which she uses to trip Rick. I gotta say, Vans circled back around QUICK with even greater popularity right now. And the final outfit is more lulu in more green.

We are in this new episode, Mercy Street, which should really be called Merciless Street. Alex is stoked to be able to jump on the bully bandwagon. First she’s in a black ribbed tank. The next outfit is just… horrible? Or is it awesome? Monochromatic af in baggy casual khakis and a brown tank. And finally, a white tank and some work pants. Each ‘fit comes accessorized with exposed bra straps, big hoops, crossbody bag, and sunglasses tucked into her shirt throughout.

Paige is looking for a job to pay back Spinner after she wrecked his car. She’s wearing kelly green, which is very different for her! This shirt has that very 2000s silhoutte – big in the sleeves and shoulders and then tight fitting around the hips. What even was that? I definitely wore that style as well. Anyway, it’s hanging off one shoulder and exposing the bra strap – cue “exposed bra strap” tag here on the blog. I also wanted to mention that tiny 2000s purse. Did anyone else carry around a purse AND a school bag like Paige? I totally did. Her hair has been textured and styled really nicely lately. I dig it. And the final outfit is her spirit squad uniform.

Oooh, Alex is FEISTY in this episode! Can’t you just see it in these stills? First she’s in a white tank with her black bra straps hangin out all classy like, her shades tucked into her shirt, baggy mechanic pants, and white shoes. Next shes’s in some casual khakis and a cropped dark tank, with a cross body bag. Oh and we can’t forget those giant hoops. And the bra straps are sparkly because they’re supposed to show! Haha, I love the 2000s. And for the presidential debate, Alex’s style is again, mechanic-chic. She wears a white tank under what looks like a work shirt all tied up, and some black baggy pants with those white shoes.

Manny is the star of the show today. She’s also the star of the gymnastics team. So we get several shots of the practice leotards, tracksuit, and also the fancy meet leotard. But on to her regular clothes – first we get a classic Manny look – an asymmetrical off-the-shoulder top featuring a tropical landscape. The exposed bra strap and newsboy hat are very nice touches. But things go downhill from there. And like Stephanie Kaye, we can see that as Manny begins to feel more downtrodden, her wardrobe tends to reflect that. So her hair is just worn in a plain low ponytail, minimal accessories, and a brown shirt. Then she’s running in athletic clothes and a zipup hoodie (love that scene!). And then, she waits for Craig in again, not the typical Manny attire.

Of all the people that could have discovered Ellie’s bad habit, it was Paige. However, it was so interesting to see compassion between two people who don’t like each other. First, Paige is wearing a full on business suit with these bedazzled fake cateye glasses. Next she’s looking smug in class, wearing a spaghetti strap shirt with cropped jeans. And finally, she walks in on Ellie, wearing a pink flare-sleeve top, sunglasses tucked in the front as always, with low rise flare pants and some beige heels.

 Gangsta Gangsta
Aired: 2003

The beginning of the second end, of Sean and Emma. Weird relationship, don’t really approve of it myself. But in terms of style, you reeeeeaaally are starting to see the separation between the two, as their styles completely clash, reflecting their completely different interests and lifestyles. Look, I’m not trying to say people of different subcultures can’t have a healthy relationship, but you gotta admit that a hippie dating a gangster is a stretch. First Emma wears a burgundy blouse, khaki capris, and cream colored sneakers. Next she cleans the ravine in a blue tie-dye tank and more khakis. I was just mentioning to one of my zoomer coworkers that we all used to wear khakis casually, and she was like, whaaaa? Next is her school picture, which is kinda sad, because it’s like a kind gesture that’s about to get crumpled up. Anyway she’s wearing a pinkish tee with a mandala on it. And finally, Emma is signing the picture and trying to give it to Sean, wearing her floor-length purse, a jean skirt, and a white peasant top.

Is this really our first time featuring MY QUEEN ALEX NUNEZ? I could have sworn she’s been in the background a time or two before now, but I guess not. Anyway, no matter. Alex is a goddess, I adore her – her attitude, her attire, everything. So she’s first seen as Jay’s gum-chewing appendage. She kinda has intimidating bad-girl vibes similar to Tabi. She literally gives no effs, as is apparent by her baggy pants, constant nail-filing, gum-chewing, and bra straps falling down. Alex has a certain uniform, the same way Sean or Jay usually do. A stacked haircut, tank top, sunglasses, hoops, and headphones, and low-rise, baggy pants. Her style is so effortlessly cool, despite its simplicity. She’s such a badass, I can’t wait to share more of her.

Manny is first seen in an athletic-inspired boat neck skin tight tee. Then, she’s looking like a queen in this pink velour track suit, a fuzzy pink hat, hoop earrings, and her tiny shades tucked into her pants.

Emma cracks me up, dressing all stereotypical all the time. Gotta love it. First she wears a brown tank top, bra straps and all, and some rad low-rise khakis belted with a striped brown belt. Eating a bowl of fruit of course. Next she’s in a tee which seems slightly non-Emma. But then I realized it’s probably another World Wildlife Fund shirt because I can see animals on it. She’s going through her B-plot of Snake finding out he has cancer.
