Paige Michalchuk Fashion 3.4

I was never a fan of crocheted tops, but somehow, everything Paige wears increases in legitimacy. To the beach she wears this pink crocheted top and an updo. Then she’s seen at school in a Canadian tuxedo – flared jeans and a jean jacket which has a strange yarn fringe. And at the dot, you can’t really see what she’s wearing, but it’s some kinda light-colored tank.

Marco is giving us some man capris for the beach trip, yuuusss. And he also wears a tank and flip flops. And as you know, it gets COLD at the beach so he dons some popped-collar layers atop. Then he wears a hockey jersey to school to impress Dylan and his friends promptly poser-check him. So sad. And finally, he goes on a pretend date with Hazel in a denim shirt and khakis.

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.

Omg y’all, Dylan is here! I have so many mixed feelings about Dylan. I feel like I appreciate him more as I get older. He has many faults of course. But I love his role as a gay jock. I love how he goes out into the world with confidence. But his whole role as a perpetual “example” and “mentor” almost takes away our ability to really get to know him. Anyway, so him and Paige and all Paige’s friends to to the beach, right? But it’s cold and rainy, lol. He’s wearing a striped athletic looking polo with shorts and flip flops, and ends up having to don a yellow rain jacket. And at school, he majestically stands up to Jay’s trolling in another horizontally-striped polo. Oh and he has this fluffy shaggy hair that you will continue to see on all the dudes.

Ashley is just completely glued to Craig for now. RIP to Goth Ash. But, I mean, she pulls this rocker look off really well, and it does seem to be better aligned with her actual interests. Her hair is still nice and red, and she wears a graphic tee and an armband with jeans. I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT SOMETHING EXTREMELY SIGNIFICANT. Her freaking bellybutton is pierced?! Looks like she overcame that extreme phobia of needles? Wish we’d had an episode about that! Anyway, this shirt she’s wearing is quite interesting. It’s got a sleeve on one side and no sleeve on the other side!

Here’s more Season 3 Sean, a look I really like. White tee, beanie, and a zip up hoodie, with the HOOD UP of course. This was before he got an attitude though. So enjoy it while it lasts.

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.

Manny Santos Fashion 3.3

I CANNOT believe we’re actually here. Manny’s transformation. Manny’s thong. And here we are, a fashion, blog, journeying since 1987, to get here. And here we are. Manny has always been so sweet, innocent, childlike, with pigtails, as long as we’ve known her. But now, following in the footsteps of Stephanie Kaye, she has decided to change her style. She wants to be hot. So first we see her in her spirit squad outfit, being totally overlooked by the man of her dreams, Sketchy Sully.

So the next day, she’s wearing a huge hoodie walking to school, only to reveal a sexy velour tracksuit underneath. Not just any track suit – it’s a tube top complete with low-rise bottoms, in a fresh baby blue. She lets her hair down and immediately everyone is gawking. Later at the mall, we see the full fit which includes a matching jacket and bucket hat and white shoes. I love the look of “excessive color” as my high school called it. My high school banned “excessive color” because it was a “gang symbol”. Oh yeah, and her chain necklace says “VEGAS”. But anyway, now Manny decides she needs a thong, by holding it up to her face.

AND HERE WE ARE! Manny’s bright blue, bedazzled thong, busting out of super-low rise jeans, completely exposed under her blue bell-sleeve cropped shirt. In order to show off even more skin, she lets the top droop off her shoulders, and her bra straps follow suit. Hey eyeshadow is frosty, her hoops are huge, and her hat is suede. Also, that criss-cross tie up the front of the shirt was definitely a trend back then (it’s also made a minor comeback recently). Long story short, the whole school is suddenly in love with her, and she gets apprehended due to her “visible underwear”.

Cue next day. Manny is hiding under a huge jacket again to reveal, NO MORE VISIBLE UNDERWEAR. Because she’s not wearing underwear with those super-low-rise jeans today. She also wears an extremely cropped shirt that says “the most beautiful girl in the world” and a floral, cropped, zip-up short sleeve hoodie. It’s truly a look. She’s last seen at the Dot, and she’s added this pink hat which really completes the ‘fit.

Wow, we did it – we reviewed Manny’s style shift! Honestly I love it. Plus, think about this. This really shows a person’s power of transformation. it’s all about context. you never know what’s hiding under their overalls and pigtails. I mean, just think about Tessa Campanelli! I say all this not to sound creepy, but to say that people can go from 0 to 10, depending on what kind of clothes they have, how they carry themselves, how they position themselves, how they’re feeling that day. We are fluid and flexible creatures, we are masters of illusion and manipulation of appearances. We are an art!

Welp, Liberty is jealous af, am I right? First she wears this long sleeve pullover that’s either yellow or green. Then, she peeps Manny’s thong and condemns her in a red tee and khakis.
