Hot Sauce is still all professional, her hair still choppier than it used to be. And she just wears a lot of suits and blazers. Though I have to shoutout this PINK blazer!

Caitlin appears with a ketchup red pixie cut, skinny eyebrows, and a fuchsia turtleneck to do a news piece on the school blood drive. Then she’s seen in this flare-sleeve silhouette that I’ve come to associate her with. This maroon looking top has a deep V and she pairs it with some dark slacks. Growing up I’ve always thought Caitlin was pretty but the hair was never quite right. Ya know? I mean it’s none of my business and to this day I can’t say what I think the best style on her is. But regardless you gotta respect the experimentation.

Caitlin has those flipped-out layers in her hair that were quite popular in the early 2000s. She’s also talking about how she HATES to see herself on camera, and I’m not buying that. Anyway, first she’s in a patterned blouse and then she’s in a ribbed lavender turtleneck.

Well, obviously if it’s not Craig/Manny/Ashley or Joey/Caitlin/Sydney we aren’t getting more than one screenshot. Here’s Paige in a navy ribbed turtleneck.

Oh yay, an episode starring Joey. First he’s all festive by topping off his outfit with a Santa hat. Indoors, he’s in a very exciting gray shirt. And THEN, he wears this flattering cream-colored turtleneck. And finally, a tux. One of those tuxes that comes with a shoulder towel. What’s that about anyway? I know I could Google it, but I like to wonder. I like life to have some mystery.

Despite the fact we have OGs returning to the Degrassi screen, we don’t really get to SEE them. They’re just passing glimpses that are barely on screen for a few seconds. Sadly this is all I was able to get of Heather, here at Spike’s baby shower. She wears a white turtleneck and a neck scarf.

Paige wears her hair up in some kind of pigtail updo, with the signature face-framing tendrils, hoop earrings, a pendant necklace, frosty eyeshadow, and a ribbed blue turtleneck sweater. The next day, she miraculously has the same hairdo, and a peachy textures off-shoulder shirt, jean jacket, flare pants, platforms, and her cool tinted aviator glasses. I REALLY love those shoes. Oh yeah and for skit class, she puts on a crown of ivy.

Manny’s not doing a lot. We see her in a blue baseball tee and tiny braids. Then in a 3/4 sleeve pink turtleneck and, of course, the same hair, because I’ve caught on to the TNG filming pattern.

Kwan wears an updo, a khaki pencil skirt, a red top, and silver jewelry. Then she wears a grey turtleneck, black cardi, and frosty eyeshadow. Those days of makeup were so simple.

Terri’s got the B plot today! First she wears a coral button down and her hair in a twisty updo. Omg the clasp of her necklace has fallen down to the front. lol. With it she wears like, a midi pencil skirt and white tennies. Not crazy about those long denim skirts personally. Next is more twisty hair, a peachy v-neck, a beige sweater draped over the shoulders all 80s style, jean capris, and her white tennies again. She’s seen modeling a jean jacket, red turtleneck, black blazer, etc. And finally, a darling white peasant-looking button up top with another interesting updo that I don’t know how to describe.

And she tells off Mohammed which is a very iconic moment. I mean I love that this issue of body image and weight is being addressed, but I honestly think it could have been handled a little differently, a little better. I don’t know, I am just left feeling weird with the way Spinner was like “Yeah dudes prefer skinny girls but sometimes we like girls like you.” I mean… like them sometimes for what exactly? Your porn selection? What? And like, that statement was supposed to be helpful.

And the way Terri has to be like “Most girls on the planet look like this [so lower your standards]!” or something, like, you know what I mean? It seems like the main point from the episode was like, don’t worry kids, someone out there will still like you despite the fact you’re curvier! And that was the message, the end. Anyone else, or is it just me?

I don’t know, it was never really about Terri loving, embracing, and accepting herself. It was about her reacting to how everyone ELSE feels about her body. Ya know? Honestly, the main interactions were about how boys feel about her body. It’s so weird. I mean Paige was like “Oh man I would wear that skirt if I was plus size, you’re so lucky” meh but that’s it. We never really got to see Terri come to any kind of resolution. We never saw follow up. We never saw her confidence skyrocket, we never saw her SLAY the next ad campaign, we never saw her look in the mirror and smile, we never saw any change, any evolution. We just learned that some clothes come in plus size only, and some dudes like thin girls and some dudes like “girls with a figure”. Sometimes.
