DTNGFASHION S5E3: Death of a Disco Dancer Aired: 2005
Marco’s style is so cool. It’s so intentional, so eclectic, so multi-faceted and layered. I really do like it, because we have a severe lack of stylish guys on the show. In my opinion, it’s not exactly about whether or not Marco’s clothes are my taste. It’s more about the fact that I can tell there’s sooo much curation behind it. It’s got Marco’s intentions and self-expression so strongly. There seems to be so much autonomy behind his ensembles. He’s not just wearing what’s “cool” or what’s easy, he is experimental and I respect that so much. The first outfit is a very 2000s looking striped polo with a shark tooth necklace. And lovely curly hair. Next – you know Marco is the king of capris – he wears these cropped jeans, flip flops, and a green jacket layered over some wild green printed shirt. He seems to combine boho with athletic and it’s so odd but cool!
Marco lookin like he came back from a pilgrimage over break. He looks like an art student from my college, except much more meticulously curated and put together. Honestly, the look seems too intentional-looking to seem like a believable hippie or world traveler. BUT let me also say, I do like it. Marco’s always got something to say with his style and I appreciate that. So many dudes around here don’t dress special, so Marco stands out. His hair is curled, his pants are cuffed super weirdly, and he wears this ornate tunic lookin top with many necklaces. At The Dot he looks like some sort of foreign athlete in this.. gosh, what kind of hat even is this? and a zip up jacket. He’s got swag for real.
Marco’s brief little friendship with Manny is cute. It’s nice to see her really finding her own way, independent of Emma. Now she’s even chilling with upperclassmen. However, Marco is forced to make a choice, and ultimately Paige is more important to him. Awkward. He’s first sporting curly hair and a white button down over a blue tank. Then he’s in a bandanna and a long-sleeve tee. For the dance, his hair is straight and he wears all black everything except for a white tie. Hope his date choice (Paige) was worth it.
Oh man, it’s time for Marco’s moment. First he’s in a zip up jacket, hoodie, and some kind of like comic book shirt. Also shout out the soul patch, don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it before, but there it is, looking itchy. Next Marco is in just a standard graphic tee with something random & unrelated on it, and I like his hair like this – curly and tucked behind the ears. He’s also seen helping with the blood drive in casual khakis and this red blood vest. Oh yeah, he’s being told he can’t give blood because he’s gay. Yeesh. Next, the outfit continues on, and we’re in Dylan’s dorm. Here we can see that these casual khakis are also FLARED! Shoutout to Marco’s flares, I feel like no one ever mentions them but I am such a fan of men in flares. I was hoping it would come back big time for men when flares circled around in the late 90s/2000s, but sadly it was mostly girls wearing them. Marco also seems to have this decorative belt on his waist, and lugs around a messenger bag. And he freakin walks in on Dylan with another guy. And Dylan’s like, “Oh hey Marco!” Brutal. Marco tries his best to suck it up, so he appears at the dorm party in an orange sleeveless tee with flare jeans. Oh yeah and plants a smooch on Craig. Our last look is Marco in a dark long sleeve, with hair hair still big.
Marco is having a beanie era right now. His hair is almost reaching his shoulders and he wears a lot of blues and browns. Love his ‘fit for the movies – a tee, a flannel, a jean jacket, and a beanie. It must be cold in TO right now.
Marco is wearing a variety of athletic-inspired shirts and jackets, with stripes going down the sleeves. His hair is long and intentional – he even wears it curly one day which, in my opinion, isn’t terrible, but then Craig tells Marco he looks like Ashley and now I just can’t unsee that.
I’m in way too deep to create the “athletic-inspired” clothing category for my tags, but here’s Marco in an athletic-inspired tee with the #88 on it, even though you and I both know Marco don’t do no sports. Then he’s wearing a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve shirt, and his hair is meticulously styled.
Marco wears basically a Canadian tuxedo featuring his flared jeans and a ringer tee peeping out from under his jacket. Then we see him in his all-black “disguise”, and lastly coming home from the concert in his Kid gear and some kind of knit baseball cap.
Marco is Manny’s companion in this episode. I kinda like them as friends but it never really gets to take off, due to Paige. So he’s rocking the long hair with the side part, which I probably compliment every time I post it. He first wears a tee under a button down and with jeans. Then in yoga he wears his man capris, a tank, and a bandanna. At the assembly he wears a tee and a beanie. But come on, let’s get to the REAL outfit here. For the dance, he wears this amazing red fedora with a matching red tie and a black longsleeve. It’s really a cool look. It’s like he took some inspo from Manny here.
