 Pride, Part 2
Aired: 2003

Paige wears a hockey jersey to Dylan’s game. Then, back at school, she wears a bluish-greenish horizontally-striped halter with low-rise jeans and a hardware belt.

Snake’s wearing some awful pasty clammy yellow color as he starts understanding he’s not feeling so well. He’s also wearing a little bit of white and a little bit of khaki, but whatever, it all sucks.

Jay Hogart Fashion 3.4

 Pride
Aired: 2003

The first appearance of JAY FREAKING HOGART! He’s one of my most favorite characters. I know a lot of you would say the same. And I hope that we all realize there’s no good reason why. Haha! Well, I can praise his fashion choices all day long, and thankfully that’s why we’re here. I swear, this actor is styled SO well, that I was stunned and disappointed that Mike is nothing like Jay in any way. lol. He wears a lot of this athletic-turned gangster style. Baggy pants, large shoes, windbreakers, sideways caps. He’s just all around perfection.

Craig Manning Fashion 3.3

S3E3:
 U Got the Look
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.)

Paige Michalchuk Fashion 3.2

Father Figure Part 2
Aired: 2003

Oh, the B-plot is that Paige doesn’t like her locker, so Spinner tries to do some bartering to get her traded into a better locker. Kinda dumb. And she looks really mad here because Spinner gets up in front of the class to tell everyone he’s whipped (part of the bartering process). Paige wears a 70s-flower-power-inspired cardi kind of thing over a blue cami with some dark wash low-rise jeans. Her hair is parted down the middle and slightly curled under. And of course, she’s wearing her blue star messenger bag.

Craig Manning Fashion 2.21

Tears are Not Enough, Part 1
Aired: 2003

Craig’s color story, however boring, is appropriate. Even though he’s got a new life now, his past still haunts him. Also, literally because his dad pulls up at school. Anyway, my point is, his past still haunts him, and his style is still depressing. Ash is intentionally depressing,  mind you. Craig is unintentionally depressing, a sad style with no direction. Here he is in a variety of colorless regular boy clothes. The leather jacket is cool though. But generally Craig just perpetually looks like he just rolled out of bed, so I feel no desire to walk through his ensembles piece-by-piece.

Snake Simpson Fashion 2.11

Don’t Believe the Hype
Aired: 2002

First Snake is wearing this awful beige polo shirt. I hate to call anyone “washed out” but this…. is a big no. But wow, we get something slightly different when he wears a tee with the Swedish flag on it for International Day. And finally, he introduces Hazel for her public confession, wearing some dark, colorless tee. Yawn.

Manny Santos Fashion 2.11

Don’t Believe the Hype
Aired: 2002

Manny’s still wearing the braids with lots of hair ties, and today she’s got on a purple floral tee and low rise jeans. It’s still so funny to me to look back and see all that we had hanging out and it was just normal. Don’t get me wrong, as always, still love it. And then she wears her dark denim jacket, which I think is the same one she wore on her date with Craig, over a maroon top.

Mohammed Fashion 2.9

Mirror in the Bathroom
Aired: 2002

First, Mohammed our resident taunter and shamer is seriously prancing around with his collar popped. He’s also a wrestler so he’s next seen is his windbreaker. And finally, ice cream boy is taken down a few pegs, his baseball tee accented with a work hat and apron.

Terri MacGregor Fashion 2.8

Shout, Part 2
Aired: 2002

Terri first rushes up to Paige with dreams of LA, wearing that floral chiffon pencil skirt that the wore for the dance in season 1. She wears it with a jean jacket and messenger bag. Her hair is in twisty corn rows. OH, and she wears one of those ball hair ties — love those! Then we have a wardrobe change – Terri dons her old PMS outfit – wide leg jeans, a shimmery top, and blue shades. And Paige is NOT having it. Cheesy girl bands are over, apparently. Crazy how much can phase out in one year. Then she is seen in this peasant top, which loses all of its glamor under a zip up hoodie. With it she wears a jean skirt and her hair is up in a clip. Oh, and chunky white tennies as well. And finally, for the PMS show, her hair is twisty again and she wears a black dress. Sadly we don’t get to enjoy PMS’s outfits much, I couldn’t get very good shots.
