Manny is looking fly like… I don’t even know, a Y2K pop star or something? In this striped shirt layered over a white tank, bubbly earrings, and that PINK HAT omg. What is this, a pink fedora?!

Wow, Manny hardly ever wears red! She looks super pretty at the dance. Oh yeah, this is the long-awaited dance date with JT. Even though he was a little jerk about it.

This is just downtrodden Manny being constantly pursued by and disappointed in JT. It’s kinda sad that we don’t actually get to SEE if anyone is harassing her about her pregnancy or subsequent abortion. This was to coddle the US audience I’m sure, but I wonder if anyone really would have bullied or shamed her? What kind of things might be said in the halls? First she wears this Asian-inspired blouse with a zip-up short sleeve hoodie which is kinda hilarious but also really realistic in that our outfits back then really weren’t very put-together. Next she’s seen in like a racing jacket of some kind. The next shirt is a floral ruffly bell sleeve blouse which is super cute. And finally, the famous patchwork fur jacket with casual khakis. Manny wears her hair in a resigned low bun throughout, symbolizing her shame and penance.

Manny is still in her like, eternal walk of shame era. First she’s in a velour pink sweatsuit, complete with sunglasses on her head deep into the night. We also see her in cheer practice for a bit. And finally, she wears her patchwork fur jacket with some casual khakis.

Manny is not dressing sexily for the moment, but things ARE looking up. Briefly. Craig is suddenly interested in her again. Her first outfit is a lavender top and a toned-down low bun in her hair. The second outfit is a significant one in the files of my brain. Underneath is a long sleeve pinky-red shirt, and over top is an awesome red jean jacket and those square hoop earrings. And finally, she’s dressed for an abortion in a nice track suit.

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.

Ohhh it’s Manny time. She’s wearing a ribbed sweater in a shade of “other woman pink” and paired with some pink velour track pants. What a look. Stylish yet comfortable. She’s also carrying a messenger bag. Here’s a little picture of that ice skate charm bracelet which Craig bought on impulse with NO thought toward it at all. Craig gives her that pink fuzzy sweater, and Manny also has some subtle pink eyeshadow on. All pink everything today.

Ah, Manny. The Other Woman. She’s reached the point of ultimatum here. UGH. Let’s not talk about everything that’s wrong with this triangle. Instead let’s talk about the style. First, she’s calling Craig from home, wearing some orange thing and looking especially young. Then, she’s wearing her ice skating outfit. I always liked those when I was little and would watch ice skating. Then, she’s hanging in Joey’s basement in a purple ski jacket. And this next jacket, this patchwork fur jacket in black, browns, and red is kind of iconic in my mind. It just stands out in my memory. And the very last fit is this feminine, frilly, multicolored pink and purple blouse paired with these super low-rise jeans and probably no underwear.

Aired: 2003

First Manny is briefly seen in a pink tracksuit, but the real fashion focus this episode is this tropical, pink and yellow, one-shoulder shirt. I love this, such a 2000s vibe! She wears it with, what I’m going to classify as “casual khakis” though they could be dress pants. Regardless, this is still more examples of the kids casually wearing more dressy pants!

 Against All Odds
Aired: 2003

This is it, folks. Another absolutely iconic Manny fashion episode. Second only to the first appearance of the thong I’d say. She’s on a MISSION you guys – to SEDUCE Craig into loving her. Somehow it worked, for a while, too. First she’s wearing this skin-tight athletic-inspired tee, with low-rise casual khakis. Her hair is so curly and lovely. Let’s move on. The RAVE. The CLUB outfit. Carefully curated by Manny on a mission. First is this pink and yellow crop top with flared sleeves. Then, this immaculate pink thong emerging from her low-rise super-tight jeans. And then hoop earrings, the hoopiest hoops ever. Also, super big hair. It’s really a shame that we don’t get a full view of this ensemble. And finally, we are back at school and Manny is wearing all pink – a light pink athletic set with a satin track jacket and white shoes. And she has a big blowout with Emma that somehow invisibly resolves itself.
