First, Diana wears this greyish blueish top with her hair down. Next is a blue and yellow checkered top with yellow hoops. She gets high as a kite in her pink pajamas, and then the next school day talks about how she didn’t feel a thing. But she looks super cute in this last outfit, a pink skirt and a floral top.

Melanie is the star of the freakin show today and look at this wide array of her slightly dorky styles we have to review! First of all, she meets her friends at the soda shop to display her newly un-braced teeth and blow all her money on Cokes.She’s wearing a blue checkered shirt and then a matching tie and skirt in this weird off-red color. She ties the look together with some tiny white slip on sneakers or something.

Next up is a yellow checkered shirt with a rounded collar and a plaid tie that’s all messed up, maybe it’s supposed to be like that.

Following that we have something a touch different. A blue sweater vest over a green shirt with a floral skirt and a headband.

Fourth: I know there’s probably a word for this type of collat but I don’t know it. Melanie wears her off-red skirt with an open red vest over this stripedy blouse. Once again, a nice break from the excessive neckties.

And finally, it’s Christmas in this red plaid shirt with a green skirt and tie. (It’s not really Christmas.)

So yeah! It’s Kathleen’s shining moment! Okay, not really. But she is the star of the show! It seems like she’s been perfectly dressed in these drab colors to represent the dark time she’s going through. And as we all know, if nothing else, from Degrassi – wearing big oversized clothing is one of the warning signs of an eating disorder.

Caitlin seems to have taken some inspiration from Nancy for a peach ensemble, but she’s added her own signature belt and headband.

Okay speaking of Caitlin and headbands, remember in DTNG S1E1 – the reunion episode? Where Caitlin brought a headband as a “memory” from high school implying that she wore tons of headbands? She really didn’t wear that many…

Melanie in green, what a surprise! She’s wearing a peasant skirt with giant pockets, a floral blouse, and a braided pony with a green bow.

Kathleen shamelessly promotes herself, finally upgrading to some more approachable colors of purple, blue, and green, while maintaining her usual skirt + turtleneck formula.

Melanie, the queen of harsh primary colors (colours)! Today her scheme is reminiscent of a childhood playground: yellow long sleeve button down under a blue sweatervest (complete with a blue tie peeping out) and a red checkered peasant skirt.

Melanie shakes things up a bit today with a floral top and the double side pony.

And I truly enjoyed this dress she wore to the dance! It’s purpley-pink with a cute sweetheart neckline lined with lace! Coulda ditched the black cardi though.

Melanie’s attire this episode is definitely no surprise. Checkered shirts, peasant skirts, and ties in the usual array of slightly unfeminine hues of blue, green, or red.

Melanie’s got on this pretty cool collared shirt with pearl buttons and a pastel floral design. With of course a signature good-girl peasant skirt.

At the start of the episode, Kathleen is wearing an awesome button down top with a childlike color combo of stripes: red, yellow, and blue. She’s got a red mid-length pencil skirt to match. Also, I didn’t clearly capture it, but she’s got 2 berets/hair clips in her hair. Interesting. I remember doubling up on half-ponytails with hair ties, but not clips.

Next, she wears the same skirt again, with her signature white socks and black loafer things, and she tops it all of with a red and checkered shirt and red headband. In my high school, she might have been sent to the office for wearing “excessive color” (yes, that was a thing, apparently a gang symbol we wanted to avoid).

In more excessive color as she tries to get her drunkass mom to come to Quest for the Best, Kathleen wears a blue and white striped shirt tucked into a blue peasant skirt, topped with a white headband.

And lastly, Kathleen wears the light yellow top we saw her (and Steph) wearing earlier this season. With a ponytail that says IDGAF anymore.
