DTNG FASHION S3E17: Don’t Dream it’s Over Aired: 2004
Marco is here serving as Ellie’s security blanket as she explores the world of gilfrienddom. First he’s wearing some kind of graphic tee with motorcycles on it with a zip up jacket. His outfit to the movies is pretty interesting. He’s got a tan corduroy newsboy hat, brown jacket, flannel, orange shirt, popped collar, and jeans that are probably flared. Bellbottoms on guys is a look I LOVE TO SEE! Back in class he’s in a brown jacket, blue tee, flared and cuffed jeans, and dressy brown shoes.
DTNG FASHION S3E14: Accidents Will Happen Part 1 Aired: 2004
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.
We’ve arrived at Chris, whom I believe to be the one referenced in the episode’s title, “This Charming Man”. Chris’s style makes it absolutely clear what he’s into – music. This first shirt has headphones on it. He wears a bucket hat and chain to accessorize. Next he’s in a blue newsboy hat and a dark wash baggy Canadian tuxedo. And of course those giant headphones. Next, he’s in another newsboy-type of hat but this time it’s backwards. He wears more baggy stuff, and more denim.
I did a poll on whether this stupid hat with the stupid bangs tucked in was one of the worst fashion choices in Degrassi history, but a lot of you did not agree. Oh well, I still stand by my opinion that this hat is a big NO. And apparently Craig didn’t like it either because we never see him wear this again. So first he’s all cocky in the mall in that hat and a leather jacket. Then he’s playing guitar in fingerless gloves. At school he wears an Oktoberfest tee and a flannel. And unfortunately he puts the hat back on for our final shot.
Lord, we have a buttload of Craig to go through today. Because his cheating ass is the star of the show. First we see him unloading the Christmas tree. He wears jeans, a leather jacket, and one of the worst fashion items to appear on broomheadz – a backwards newsboy hat. This is atrocious. And unfortunately there’s more. But next we see him taking phonecalls from his mistress, with his usual floofy hair, and a red tee under a denim overshirt. His next appearance is in a raglan tee – try not to get distracted by Joey’s awful turtleneck, we will get to that in another post. Next, oh no – that awful hat is back. He’s even tucked his bangs into it. Who let this happen? He continues to wear this awful thing throughout the rest of these shots. It’s kinda hard to pay attention to his boring shirts, pants, and shoes that I’d otherwise go over with you.
