Suddenly I want to wear those 80s trends again

Even in its fourth season, stranger things has as much media influence as when it first came out and took the entertainment world by storm. Although I don’t watch the sci-fi series, my social media feed continues to be filled with songs from the series (Kate Bush is on top) or videos of outfits inspired by 80s ensembles seen on the series . We’ve talked a lot about 90s and early 2000s fashion on Who What Wear, but looking at stranger things made me realize that the 80s deserve more attention.

The majority of my focus on the series remained on the characters’ suspenseful adventures, though I couldn’t help but be intrigued by each character’s technicolor ensembles. From Steve Harrington’s double-denim to Nancy Wheeler’s exaggerated-collar Nike moments, I wouldn’t mind adding a few ’80s-inspired trends to my wardrobe. There are plenty of trends I wouldn’t bring back (I’m looking at you, acid wash denim and poofy bangs) I’ve relayed five below that I plan to wear again in 2022. Waiting for the party from show 2 to air, (it’s coming to Netflix on July 2) keep scrolling and get your own dose of 80s style.
