Stranger Things is basically an ode to the '80s. The obsession with the supernatural, cable TV, and mixtapes, along with children actually playing outside, we’re thrown back into the decade before technology took over. And most importantly, we’re given a review of its sartorial side with the characters decked out in turtlenecks, stripes, and plaid skirts in mustard, brown, and blush.
Let’s zone in on Nancy Wheeler, brought to life by actress Natalia Dyer. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to give my chokers a break and slip into her preppy retro style any day now. Check out below how you can dress like her, without looking so outdated.
Thank you, Nancy, for making shearling jackets cool again! To update this piece, choose a denim one instead of Nancy’s bright red to make it wearable all year round.
Yes, granny skirts are back! Give it a modern twist by wearing these pleats in culottes.
Revert back to the '80s without the bulky knits and opt for lightweight fabrics instead. Plus points for bold graphic prints!
