Even in its fourth season, Stranger Things has as much of a pull on the media as it did when it first came out and took the entertainment world by storm. Right now, my social media feed continues to be filled with either songs from the show (Kate Bush is top tier) or outfit videos inspired by the ’80s ensembles seen on the show. We’ve been talking about ’90s and early-2000s fashion quite a bit on Who What Wear, but watching Stranger Things made me realize the ’80s deserve more attention.
The majority of my focus on the show stayed on the characters’ suspenseful adventures, although I couldn’t help but be intrigued by each character’s technicolored ensembles. Whether it’s Steve Harrington’s double-denim and Nike moments or Nancy Wheeler’s exaggerated collars, I wouldn’t mind adding a few ’80s-inspired trends to my wardrobe. There are a lot of trends I wouldn’t bring back (I’m looking at you, acid-wash denim and puffy bangs), but I’ve listed five below that I’m planning on wearing again in 2022.
While you wait for Part 2 of the show to air, (It comes to Netflix on July 2) keep scrolling and get your own ’80s style dose.
