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.
3. 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.
5. 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,
8. 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.
