Yeah, so it’s sweetheart week or something, and Paige is absolutely DETERMINED to lock in Matt. What was that even about, ya know? He was clearly a slob. It seemed like she only liked the way he looked? Anyway, on to the fashion. I love Paige in pinks and pastels, and she really delivers in this episode. First she wears this floral cami layered over a pink cami. Then she’s in yoga with a high pony, pink halter shirt and yoga pants. And, Paige is, in my mind, known for her ponchos. Wait, or is this a shawl? Whatever, I’m not googling it. Paige wears another ponchi. It’s pink and floral and paired with jeans.

“HELLOOOOO? It’s watermelon!”

Paige time! Like I’ve been saying, I LOVE this era of Paige’s style. Her hair is bomb, her complexion is glowing, and the colors she picks are GREAT. I am living for this off-shoulder, baby blue ruched top, with jeans, silver jewelry, and that textured hairstyle. In yoga, gah I’m sorry but none of these kids are doing it right. Anyway, in yoga, she wears a cute ponytail, a maroon tank, and yoga pants. We get a brief glimpse of that dehumanizing work uniform before we’re back in yoga, in PINK! And finally, Paige is going to the club looking like a 2000s hottie. She wears this cowl neck pink blouse layered over a white cami, because layers were everything. She also has that poof in her hair, which I still do. She’s all accessorized complete with her tiny purse. And she’s wearing KHAKIS to the club.

I wonder if Paige ever realized that like, she seriously cheated death. I wonder if she ever thought that she might have been on “the list”. Anyway, as always, I love her complexion in this era, the really golden look, and her textured hair. She’s got some kind of floral top on and a bulky 2000s looking necklace. So weird that everyone is still getting dressed and fixing their hair despite everything.

Paige wears this very cool grey and purple chiffon tank with ruffles. Definitely looks like something I would have worn in college. Her hair is nicely styled like it usually is these days. And lastly we see her in the hospital with her famous yarn-lined denim jacket.

Ah, the star of the episode. So Paige is realizing that Spinner totally sucks. She is also still trying to pay him back for wrecking his car. So the first outfit we see is her uniform when she was working briefly at The Dot. Then she’s in the caf wearing thie bizarre lilac tie-front top, with the tie hanging all the way down to her knees. Her hair is also super cutely styled, which I feel is treading outside the perimeters of realistic high school. But it IS pretty. The next top is this super cute off-the-shoulder watermelony tie-dyed top, short enough to reveal the matching pink belt on her jeans. She’s also got some subtle pink eyeshadow, and her jeans are cuffed since she’s short, and she has pink pumps on as well. Then, she’s in her little chihuahua tee again, gazing at her asshole boyfriend. She wears this with a jean miniskirt and flip flops (which were not allowed at my school). Gosh, we’re still going? This is a lot of Paige outfits. We see a Spirit Squad ‘fit (peep that flip phone), and also her work uniform after she lands the job at the theatre. Can we take a moment of silence for the saggy crotch on those work khakis? Gah, I remember that feeling all too well. And finally, the last outfit is that darling orange and pink top with the O-ring detail. Looking like a 70s flashback.

I love when the script is written to explain why someone is not there. “Paige has the flu ya know.” “Yeah I know.”

Well Paige is back from the flu! Honestly I love her complexion in this season. Okay it’s like, her hair is the same color as her skin? Ya know? I just think that looks cool. And also her brows and eye makeup are so light. It’s all so interesting, she looks like vanilla cake with white icing or something. Anyway, she pops by The Dot, and I think she’s wearing that shirt with a chihuahua on it. But more notably is this neck scarf which is not very Paige like, but again, she wears it with the utmost confidence.

Paige is looking for a job to pay back Spinner after she wrecked his car. She’s wearing kelly green, which is very different for her! This shirt has that very 2000s silhoutte – big in the sleeves and shoulders and then tight fitting around the hips. What even was that? I definitely wore that style as well. Anyway, it’s hanging off one shoulder and exposing the bra strap – cue “exposed bra strap” tag here on the blog. I also wanted to mention that tiny 2000s purse. Did anyone else carry around a purse AND a school bag like Paige? I totally did. Her hair has been textured and styled really nicely lately. I dig it. And the final outfit is her spirit squad uniform.

Well, here we are at the star of the episode again. Paige is first just totally let down, understandably, and wears a maroon tank top under a navy zip up hoodie. More casual than we usually see her. I do love the ponytail though. And this next outfit is, in my opinion, one of the more iconic Paige ensembles. Her hair is all done up and her makeup is done. She wears flares and boots. And a tight-fitting long tee under a pink.. shawl? poncho? Well, you see it here. I just love Paige in pink, and I love that she can wear things that are kinda…weird, yet still make them work.

New year, new look, new Paige! First thing I notice in this season is that Paige’s hair routine has changed. It’s like she got some texturizing spray or something. The first outfit is worn at Joey’s car lot. It’s a blue track jacket over a black top, with casual khakis. Next, at the drive-in, she wears her famous yarn jacket. And then she’s helping Dylan move in in a soft pink track jacket, tennies, and let’s be real. These pants? They would NOT fly in 2004. They just wouldn’t. They’re too short to be pants, too long to be capris. Very dorky. Wardrobe department definitely got these at Value Village and I bet Lauren Collins didn’t even complain. Sometimes, Paige really is dressed awkwardly but her attitude makes it all seem so intentional, you know? That just goes to show that as long as you stand by what you wear, you can make anything look cool. And now, for the BACK TO SCHOOL outfit. She wears some kind of pointy-toe heel, flared jeans (cuffed as always), and a pink (tweed?) blazer with long pearls in TRUE 2000s fashion. She has a messenger bag AND a purse on her shoulder. Oh yeah, AND a chain belt!! Fantastic. And finally, her court outfit is a beautiful grey suit which I’d say is very timeless. She also wears a purpley-pink shirt under it. Apparently, Paige also started the “tiny purse” trend way back then. I want to say that’s a purse with all the “effs” she gives, but sadly she gives a lot of “effs” right now, understandably.
