Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here
Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

The show was so popular at the time and is now iconic. It was the first time we saw a Black teenage girl with fashion savvy and supernatural powers on our television screens, aspirational in more ways than one (haven't we all thought about having supernatural powers at some point in our childhood?).

For me, growing up, the show's highlight was the fashion. Raven was so chic and trendy as a teenager, I wanted to be as fashionable as her when I grew up. The impression she had on me continues to last today.

I've been binge-watching the series on Disney+, and have been recreating some of her most iconic looks, here.

1.The Sheer Blouse


Raven often times wore blouses that were sheer and see thru with a camisole underneath. This is a style that is extremely popular today.

2.The Mesh Top


This style of shirt was extremely popular in the early 2000s. Moms and daughters alike wore mesh shirts. This style, although considered normal now, was once considered edgy.

3.The Dress and Shirt Combo


Towards the end of the series, Raven had gotten an internship working for the Iconic fashion designer (Ms.Donna Cabana), she truly was a staple in my childhood. Anyway, this look is easy to recreate and is a good look whether in a casual or professional setting,

4.The Pink Feather Moment


Raven LOVED feathers. I would say that it was one of her most-worn embellishments. This look is easy to replicate whether you buy something similar or try to recreate the cardigan yourself.

5.The Liz Anya Effect


Most people recall this episode of when Raven disguises herself as a famous pop star named "Liz Anya" to get her dad back his job, as their favorite episode. I concur. It's a classic. This look can be worn to a plethora of events and is easy to recreate.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
