TV and Movies·Posted on Mar 2, 202123 Outfits I Can’t Believe We Let Disney Channel Get Away WithSo. Many. Layers.by Kristen HarrisBuzzFeed Staff Back in the day, it seemed like Disney Channel characters had everything — secret music careers, magical powers, a hotel suite to call home. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Disney / Via giphy.com One thing no Disney Channel character had, however, was an actual sense of style. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF TV Land / Via giphy.com Some of the outfits, however, were on a whole different level of bad. So, without further ado, here are 23 outfits I still can't believe we let Disney Channel get away with. Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Disney / Via giphy.com 23. Raven Baxter's Lightning McQueen pants Disney / Via disneyplus.com She took the saying "liar liar, pants on fire" a little too seriously. The shirt wouldn't be so bad without the rhinestones. 22. London Tipton's ballgown from Spirit Halloween Disney / Via disneyplus.com On this episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, London was LITERALLY going to meet her true love at the masquerade ball, and this was the best they could do for her? She was going for princess dress but somehow landed on cheap witch costume. 21. Sonny Munroe's vest corset Disney / Via disneyplus.com This outfit looks like a pirate put it together at Limited Too. Why are there so many layers? Why the heart chain? Why do this to Demi? 20. Hannah Montana's tiger striped fashion fiasco Disney / Via disneyplus.com This is from the beginning of what I call her "clown phase," where Miley dressed normally but Hannah made all her clothes out of repurposed circus tents. She had this shirt in pink, too. I'm not even going to comment on the giant belt. 19. Alex Russo's Hot Topic tea party dress Disney / Via disneyplus.com The black leggings under a skirt, fishnet arm warmers, black Converse, and pin straight hair SCREAM, "I was emo in middle school." Honestly, though, I totally would've pinned this outfit to my "Style Goals" Pinterest board in sixth grade. 18. Teddy Duncan's layers and leopard print combo Disney / Via disneyplus.com The only logical reason I can think of for putting Bridgit Mendler in this outfit is that she kept getting lost on set, and they needed an easy way to spot her. The neon color combination is giving me a headache. 17. Sonny Munroe's Goth cupcake ensemble Disney / Via disneyplus.com Again, it looks like all of Sonny's clothes were purchased from the clearance section at Limited Too. If they had to give her a cropped sequin cardigan, they could've at least buttoned it properly. 16. Gordo's two-toned shirt and paisley fedora Disney / Via disneyplus.com In this scene from Lizzie McGuire, Lizzie and Miranda are pointing out everything about Gordo they find annoying, but somehow, they missed this hat. Like, did they make a secret pact to not clown the straw fedora he bought on a cruise? 15. Tawni Hart's psychedelic second-grade teacher outfit Disney / Via disneyplus.com I feel like this outfit could be semi-cute if it stuck to one color. The matching apple necklace and earrings could be cute, too, in a more educational setting. 14. Raven Baxter's country get-up Disney / Via disneyplus.com The hair ribbons and the western shirt are sort of understandable, but I absolutely draw the line at cow-print chaps. 13. Joe Jonas's Tenth Doctor cosplay Disney / Via disneyplus.com In this scene from Jonas LA, he's supposed to be on a movie set, but he looks like he's on his way to Comic Con. Don't get me wrong, I loved David Tennant on Doctor Who, but the British time-traveling alien look doesn't really suit a rockstar. 12. Lizzie McGuire's patchwork top Disney / Via disneyplus.com Maybe she ran out of clean laundry, but she had a bunch of fabric scraps and a sewing machine handy. She wore this to campaign for student body president, so at least it made her stand out. 11. Jake Ryan's zombie slayer outfit Disney / Via disneyplus.com It was supposed to be cool, but in 2021, he just looks like a really big Black Widow stan. 10. Alex Russo's ombre striped shirt and coordinating beanie Disney / Via disneyplus.com I think the stylists saw two purple striped pieces of clothing and decided that was good enough. The slouchy beanie, though — I totally had a similar one from Selena's Dream Out Loud collection at Kmart. 9. Hannah Montana's coat of many colors Disney / Via disneyplus.com She walked so Jojo Siwa could run. 8. Cece Jones' British boy band-inspired fit Disney / Via disneyplus.com It's the acid wash capris for me. Maybe it would be better without the "fall in love" top, but the first rule of Disney Channel fashion has always been "more layers." 7. Justin Russo's hippy "bad boy" alter ego Disney / Via disneyplus.com It's giving me "wannabe Ozzy Osbourne at Woodstock" vibes. I can't with the goatee. The dream catcher necklace makes it 10,000 times worse, too. 6. Rocky Blue's shoulder bow Disney / Via disneyplus.com She definitely has an Eiffel Tower poster in her room. Zendaya deserved better. 5. Maddie Fitzpatrick's Sharpay-inspired turtleneck Disney / Via disneyplus.com This shirt is having a bigger identity crisis than Maddie did when she wasn't cast as Sharpay. Is it a tunic top? A fancy blouse? A turtleneck? Also, I can't get over the fruit charms on her necklace. I wonder if she borrowed it from Tawni. 4. Kevin Jonas's striped cardigan Disney / Via disneyplus.com It seems no one was safe from the "add more layers" rule. It would be better without the Ronald McDonald-red t-shirt underneath. 3. Teddy Duncan's sherpa vest and bell sleeves Disney / Via disneyplus.com I'm guessing she was cold, but not too cold. She just needed an extra layer, and they couldn't fit a sparkly cardigan over those voluminous sleeves. 2. Alex Russo's funky hat Disney / Via disneyplus.com For someone who wrote a whole song about bad hats, Alex sure had a lot of them. 1. And finally, Lizzie McGuire's "What Dreams Are Made Of" ballgown that tore away into low-rise pants Disney / Via disneyplus.com This is controversial, I know, but while iconic, this outfit has TOO MUCH going on. Really, it's the cutout panel instead of committing to a crop top for me.
