It’s a fact that we wouldn’t have survived middle school without Lizzie McGuire. Through all of her trials and tribulations of navigating the seventh and eighth grade, we were able to glean some pretty important lessons about friendships, crushes, and of course, fashion. From Lizzie’s amazing hairstyles, to Miranda’s obsession with all things British, here are some of our favorite style lessons we learned from Lizzie McGuire.
1. You can never have too many hair accessories.
A well rounded collection includes enough headbands, butterfly clips, hair pins… you get the idea.
2. Good friends will you that your outfit looks good. Great friends will tell you if your clothes make you look dorky and your hair looks like an ostrich.
Thank goodness for Gordo and Miranda for teaching us the importance of friendship.
3. Tie-dyeing never goes out of style.
So what if you miss out on Danny Kessler’s pool party? Tie-dyeing your sheets with your best friend is way more fun (and stylish).
4. Moms give the best advice, even when it comes to fashion.
Seriously, listen to your mother. She’s full of stylish wisdom.
5. Find your own signature color.
Even if you can’t come up with a more exciting name for the color than “gold,” it’s important to find things that are all your own.
6. A bargain can be just as good as designer.
Let’s face it, you really don’t need the expensive pants from the Style Shack. As long as you feel confident with your style, you’ll look like a million bucks.
7. Who you are as a person is more important than how you look in a picture.
It’s easy to get caught up in the craziness of trying to be perfect all the time. Just remember though that in the long run, people will remember you for the person that you are, not for a picture taken in the 7th grade.
