What Would Lizzie Wear In 2014?

by Tess Yocom

There are plenty of things 2000s kids fight over. Backstreet Boys or ‘NSync. “Oops I Did It Again” or “...Baby One More Time.” Juicy Couture or Ed Hardy. BUT, there’s something we can all agree on: Disney Channel in 2014 is now a hot mess. Alright — maybe I'm being dramatic, but it’s definitely not what it used to be.

Why? Us 2000s kids got to witness the prime of Disney Channel. Tweens these days will never understand some of these golden moments in television history. Remember when Lizzie McGuire made that weird cover up about needing to buy school supplies, but completely broke down and screamed that she WANTS. A. BRA? Or when Raven dressed up as a substitute teacher by wearing that purple suit and wig? Kids these days just don’t understand all the joy we got to witness.

Sure, Hilary Duff now a mom and Miley Cyrus is, well, being Miley, but how would these iconic characters of our past dress today? After all, we’ve come a long way since crimped hair and fake Tiffany chokers. Here’s a completely (un)scientific theory on what our favorite Disney stars would wear in 2014.

Lizzie McGuire

Let’s all admit that Lizzie McGuire was a basic bitch. She and Miranda just had to try every trend — from red clip-in extension to plaid newsboy hats — that made them look completely ridiculous.

In 2014, Lizzie would be the girl getting a PSL because it’s “just sooo good” and dress like a Kardashian because they’re “basically her style icons.” Oh yeah, she’d have ombré hair.

Kim Possible

Kim. Seriously. STOP wearing crop tops to solve mysteries. She won’t, though. Our modern day K.P. would still make any excuse possible to show off her midriff.

She’d definitely be way into high waisted shorts because they’d allow her to make cropped shirts "class appropriate." Kind of, anyways.

She and Wayne now communicate on Gchat.

Ren Stevens

Ren Stevens was basically the good girl of the Disney clan. She did everything right, from getting good grades to doing every extracurricular activity to singing about going to the moon in 1969 (not 1968.)

Of course, Ren’s style would still be totally consistent with her image. She’d wear a J. Crew button down and matching skirt because it’s “comfortable yet professional.”


Raven was on top of her fashion game. She always knew exactly what was in and wasn’t afraid to wear it to school, even if the rest of the class hadn't caught on to the trends. Unlike Lizzie, who just wanted to be trendy and cool, Raven actually cared about fashion — she was just sort of innately stylish.

Ten year later, she’d be the girl in design school who was wearing Birkenstocks way before all the bloggers were doing it. She’s more of a Nylon girl than Vogue, and almost never posts as selfie.

Hannah Montana/Miley

This one’s tricky. As every 2000s girl knows, Miley had to balance two personalities as a pop star and a regular girl at school. The best of both worlds, etc.

Hannah Montana was obviously extremely glamorous, so in 2014, she’s normally spotted looking like someone on the front page of Miley, on the other hand, is a tad basic. She wears cowboy boots to the beach because she “just can’t get enough of Tennessee.” Please stop.
