I Just Binged Stranger Things—Suddenly I Want to Wear These '80s Trends Again

I Just Binged Stranger Things—Suddenly I Want to Wear These '80s Trends Again

Even at 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. While I’m not binge-watching the sci-fi series, 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.

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 to 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 poofy bangs) I relayed five below that I’m planning on wearing again in 2022. While you wait for the show’s part 2 to air, (It comes to Netflix on July 2) keep scrolling and get your own ’80s style dose.

While I won’t be copying the acid-wash aspect of the denim look above, I’m inputting a mental note to wear a simple double-denim look next time I’m going out. Instead of pairing the denim pieces with punchy colors, I’d stick to a more simple look with a crisp white t-shirt and black accessories. 

Saturated shades are the trend WWW editors can’t stop talking about, and amongst all the color possibilities, the punchy neon hues that were extremely popular during the ’80s have been catching my eye.

It is the ’80s I’m talking about here, so one colorful trend wouldn’t be just enough. I consistently saw t-shirts with colorful stripes on the show, but I’m also interested in seeing the print on button-downs for a 2022 upgrade.

I often like thrifting my blazers because I love to find ones that have strong shoulders. It may not be everyone’s favorite, but I love the strong touch it adds to the structure of a blazer.

Graphic tees became widely loved in the ’80s with people wearing everything from Coca-Cola to Mickey Mouse on their chests. Although I have quite a bit of collection of graphic tops, seeing characters like Dustin and Eddie rock theirs reminded me to give mine a little bit more love.Not only are they cooler than your average t-shirt, but they show a bit of your personality.

A collared poplin top is a must-have for the summertime, and after I finished the latest Stranger Things episode, I hit purchase on a Ganni top that’s been sitting in my cart for days.
