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.

When I think of Ellie, my first thought is usually referencing her in this episode. For two reasons: 1, her style is iconic here on this day. And 2, I completely relate to the way she feels here in this episode. It’s almost, potentially, social anxiety. I mean, I know the script probably intends for us to think she’s just all bent out of shape over Marco. But I see more than just that. I see a girl who blatantly doesn’t fit in. A girl who questions her outfit as soon as she steps outside and sees the people she’s with. A girl who wants to have fun but doesn’t know how, like she can’t find that lightswitch inside of her to switch “fun” to “on”. A girl who’s there, physically, but not contributing to the socialization, and not necessarily wanted. I relate to that feeling all too well, of wanting to have fun, to be fun, but not knowing how. What can she possibly say to this group of friends chatting? Nothing. You know?

I wish it was social anxiety in the script. Instead it’s just “I’m mad at Marco so this isn’t fun”. lol. Whatever. Anyway, so let’s talk about the clothes. First of all who tf goes to the beach in this? I gotta admire her commitment to the aesthetic though. El wears pigtail braids, a sleeveless collared shirt with crisscross tie down the front, mesh sleeves and arm warmers, a choker, a plaid skirt, leggings or pants underneath, and black wedge boots. And a big FROWN y’all! “I couldn’t let my HONEY come here by himself.” Girl, yes you could omg.

Marco’s style is definitely developing even further now! First he’s wearing a navy track jacket with futuristic shades. Then he wears a ringer tee with a necklace and a bandanna. He’s also got those cuffed flared jeans. Next, he experiments with some yellow, wearing a plaid shirt and bandanna, as well as his sunglasses in that dark ass basement.

Is nobody gonna talk about how COINCIDENTAL it is that JT has an “honest-to-goodness sweet-hearted crush on Manny uwu” as SOON as she starts wearing a public thong? Bitch please. He likes her the same damn reason Sully and everyone else likes her. Sheesh. So why we all pro-JT when he’s just a perv like everyone else? Sure, maybe he’d be nicer than Sully, but what’s the REAL reason for the interest? Horniness. Excuse all the language in this post, I really couldn’t hold back.

Horny JT is seen here in multiple shots, gawking at Manny, with his shaggy haircut, open button down, tee, shorts, and chunky shoes. Oh and can’t forget the puka shell necklace. And gotta love the black socks. And I miss when shorts were this long. Don’t miss that hairstyle.

I know, I’m impatient too. Our next entry is Jimmy, wearing tee shirts, baggy jeans, and white shoes.

Craig Manning Fashion 3.3

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

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.

Sean rolls in with a new look this season as well. He traded in his jean jackets for hoodies, beanies, and bandannas. I love it.

Marco is growing increasingly more stylish. Prepare your hearts and minds. This first ‘fit is amazing. The light wash flare jeans, the popped collar, and the glasses really top it off. I swear, only a few people can pull off the popped collar, and Marco is one. I also like what he does with his sleeves – kinda makes them flare out to compliment his pants. I’m just a sucker for flares, whether it’s bell sleeves or bellbottoms or whatever. And the next outfit is his rainbow button down shirt, kinda tight-fitting, with another popped collar.
