Winona Ryder. Supernatural creatures that make your skin crawl. Dark synthpop. Suspense, horror, and romance in one. And most importantly, a killer ’80s wardrobe.
Netflix coins Stranger Things a “love letter to ’80s classics,” and here at ACS it’s the source of inspiration behind our latest fashion editorial.
Let me quickly set the scene: It’s 1983. It’s an era of mixtapes, landline phones, children actually playing outside, and of course, early ’80s fashion galore. Plaid skirts, turtlenecks, and Sherpa jackets all in a rich autumnal colour palette.
While we wait with anticipation for updates on a season two, we take a moment to celebrate the best 80s style moments on Stranger Things. We don’t know about you, but we’re ready for the whole ’90s comeback to be dethroned by its predecessor.
