Well, that sounds a heckuva lot like the first season of The Legend of Korra...

No, it wasn't Legend of Korra. It didn't have anything to do with an avatar. Thanks anyway!

You mentioned you've looked at lists of 2000's anime, but have you checked the Adult Swim programming pages? There's this: and then this for their Toonami block which started in 2012:

I don't know if this helps, but I believe the main character also wore some kind of goggles (maybe steampunk?) and cargo pants.

@livewithstyle I have looked at those. But, I checked them again now just in case I missed something. Still nothing. Thanks, though!

Was it Oban Star Racers? The main character Eva/Molly is a 15 year old girl, has brown hair, pilots a spaceship and dresses like you describe.

@vpetmad I found the opening for Oban Star Racers on YouTube to see if it could jog my memory. It didn't look exactly like I remember, but perhaps my memory has been distorted in the years since I saw it. I'll check out a few episodes. Thanks for your help!

Last Exile has a steampunk feel and muted color scheme.

@Pegasus Knightmare I looked that up and it doesn't ring any bells. Thanks anyway!
