So, Liberty and JT literally JUST got together and they’re already fighting. Ya know… she was kind of a mean girlfriend. She is first seen in this shirt of horizontal stripes, and then in a polo layered over a cami with a jean skirt.

It’s time for our BJ queeeeen, yeeessss! Ya know… Emma was experimenting. That’s normal, that should be fine, right? Idk why they had to portray it as such a morally bad decision here on the show. But, I mean, I guess her decision to experiment wasn’t coming from the right place. She was in a bad spot. But on the other hand, does it need to come from the right place?

Anyway, she sure had mastered looking dead inside these days, huh? Maybe this was just the thing she needed to bring her back to life! lol. Okay okay, let’s get on with the fashion. First she is in “semi-dress” rehearsal wearing some layered tanks. She looks super tall next to Alex and Emma, right? For all I know she’s about 5’7, so it looks like bad girls club is just super shirt. Emma’s bangs look…ok. And her hair is flat. Her clothes are extremely tight; I do remember those days. And of course, her pants are LOW. I guess this is a really good example of where Emma is in life. She’s still wearing those earthy Emma colors, and she’s still carrying the usual bag, so it’s like she’s still herself deep inside, but her style is drained of creativity. Outside she wears a jean jacket to make it a Canadian tuxedo, and sports these little flimsy headphones. Also had to show you that cell phone, wow. The final few shots are really just more boring Emma clothes, then another dress-like rehearsal, and also a little shot of that infamous bracelet. Oh yeah, the final fit with the jean skirt and the Airwalks is super cute.

I wish the bracelet thing had continued, even if in the background. Like maybe showing people wearing them. It would have been awesome to keep the legacy going too, like having Next Class kids doing the bracelet thing. Or at the very least, Esme having some on her wrists or something.

WOW, tons of Manny today, and she is SO stylish I couldn’t stop screenshotting. We have an awesome color palette form her this episode – it’s a valentine’s day episode so we get red, pink, yellow, and orange.

The first outfit is this kinda athleisure-lululemon-looking zip-up top with a yellow cami underneath. This top matches perfectly to her bright ass pink fedora. It’s so offensive, I love it. She’s wearing a ponytail with what I call “face-framing tendrils” left out. We also see her low-rise jeans and pink plastic watch.

Then, she’s in… this is almost like a track suit, but it’s got a skirt with it. It’s a super weird athletic looking set without actually being athletic-appropriate. It’s a nice creamy orange color and she wears a pink cami under it. Her hair pulled half back this time, but the face-framing tendrils persevere. She is showing Chester around and falls in love pretty instantly.

Next, we see her looking super flirtatious on the TV announcements at school, wearing a short sleeve track jacket in red. Are y’all liking this straight hair? I guess I like Manny’s hair in all its forms tbh.

I for some reason really like this next outfit. Just a blue tee with hoops and a ponytail, but for some reason she really pulls this off and makes it look so cute. It says “Babe” on it, similar to those like, “90% Angel” shirts and whatnot. lol. I love it, where can I get one? Actually, I could never pull off clothing with “pet names” on it. Reminds me of that time I tried to wear a choker that said “Bitch” on it but didn’t even last the day.

Now we have this outfit here in the school assembly that we hardly get to see. It’s like, some kinda halter with grommets and a zigzag lace front. Looks pretty 70s, it’s a shame we can’t see it better.

And finally, at the dance, Manny wears a tight red halter, a matching red newsboy hat, giant heart earrings, a jean skirt, and some wedges. Ah yes and when she goes out into the cold to cry to Spinner, she adds a jean jacket. Hey wait a minute… February in Toronto has GOT to be colder than this! Oh,… maybe it’s just a sweetheart dance and not a Valentine’s dance? Eh, whatever.

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.

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.

Alex is too-cool-for-school as always, rocking the short hair, hoops, a zip-up hoodie, a jean skirt, and some boots – which admittedly aren’t really her typical style. I guess she got dressed up for double date night.

Emma and Manny have finally reconciled their recent tension because they can bond over Manny’s pregnancy. Emma is dressed like the perfect high school hippie. First, a navy peasant blouse and jeans. Next is a burgundy boho kinda top with casual khakis! And finally, a floral button down open over a cami with a jean skirt and her knee-hanging purse. She also rocks a middle part the whole time. So whoever said that millennials don’t do middle parts, see this.

2003

Wow, it’s Emma time. And I captured a LOT of Emma for you today. This is the episode where she’s so hung up on Sean that she uses Chris to try to get over him but ends up just using Chris as a tool to attack Sean. Her first ‘fit is an entirely pointless scarf with a pink blouse, jean skirt, headband, and her low-hanging purse.

The next outfit includes that same headband – which, actually, she wears the entire episode. I’m not sure why she needs that headband because her hair is already pulled half-back. But anyway, I digress. She’s wearing that LOVE tank which I’m sure a lot of us recognize from promo pics. I’ve got a closeup shot of that hippie necklace as well. At school, though, she puts on a beanie that she stole from Jack. She wears some kind of skirt that I might describe as a hiking skirt. It appears she tied a knot in her low-hanging purse so that it’s no longer past her knees. And her shoes look like Merrells or something. Next, a simple PJ & ponytail shot. And then, she’s going a little kooky at school, with a green plaid shirt under a jean jacket and over a white tee. She actually wears this with casual khakis. Wow, these just keep going don’t they? Next, we are at Snake’s birthday party and Emma wears a green 3/4 sleeve v-neck layered over more green, and she also wears some kind of patchwork skirt. She dons the jean jacket to go find Chris at the mall, because you used to have to like go to a store to listen to new music. That’s crazy. And wow, all she has to do is drop some cheesy lines and BAM, got Chris back. The end!

First, Paige is wearing a light blue tank with some casual khakis. Then, she’s wearing this asymmetrical multicolored tank and, the bottom of this outfit is bizarre. A midi pencil jean skirt with these brown wedge boots it looks like she swiped from her mom or something. Then, she’s in the bathroom in a tiny tee with a floral design and raglan style sleeves, again with those casual khakis. She wears a dark jean jacket outside. Also, enjoy the blue Paige sunglasses because I’m not quite sure when they disappear. And lastly we see a nice blue and yellow blouse with a blue shirt underneath.

 Whisper to a Scream
Aired: 2003

Ashley is wearing a jean jacket, a jean skirt, and a band tee. And hello, yes, I would like you to know I am such a sleuth I was able to figure out what shirt this is. Bob Seger, American Storm. You’re welcome. And lastly, Ashley’s hair is very texturized and very much flipped out. I think I always struggled with accepting this hairdo because I feel like by 2003 people weren’t flipping their hair out anymore. Maybe I’m wrong. They were definitely still putting product in it to make it look as crunchy as possible, so that’s on point.
