Lizzie McGuire – Lizzie McGuire
It’s hard to imagine Hillary Duff as anything but the accomplished, beautiful, graceful woman she is today. But once upon a time, she was a Disney Channel star who wore loud colors, crazy hair, and had a cartoon alter-ego.
Always armed with a bright smile and an earnest attitude, Lizzie took chances when it comes to dressing. At any given moment, she may have had no less than 20 accessories on at a time, and her hair often pointed in more than 3 directions. Brokering in bright colors and fun patterns, Lizzie didn’t mind being noticed. In fact, she preferred it, but it often didn’t go her way.
You couldn’t have been a tween girl in the early ’00s without garnering some influence from Lizzie. Whether it was the stacked wedges, midriff-baring shirts, or the stacks and stacks of bracelets, everybody wanted to look a little like Lizzie.
She may have been a little more courageous with her style choices that most girls, but you have to admire the grit it took to wear all the trends at once. You could just pick one to get inspiration from, and you’d be set for the night. You didn’t have to go all in, like Lizzie. But why wouldn’t you want to?
