Okay, have you all seen Stranger Things yet? If you haven’t, get to Netflix and clear up your evening, because you’re going to want to binge-watch it. We’re a little obsessed over here. And not just the storyline! Whether you like the show or not, the characters will linger in your mind long after you’ve finished the season, and their 1980’s Americana style is really what’s stuck with us. Here are a few looks that pay homage to the show’s throwback styling!
It’s easy to get pieces that are very on-the-nose to replicate Eleven’s style. This is due mostly to the fact the she wears the same outfit throughout almost the entire show. If you need a Halloween costume, you can choose pieces that are exactly Eleven, but you can also put together any sweet blush dress, blue bomber, knee socks and white sneakers that hearken back to her aesthetic and wear it in your everyday life!
Nancy is a preppy girl turned rebel in the show, and her clothing tends to reflect her scholarly side. She tended to wear clothes that kept her looking appropriate and covered up, so to channel her vibe we paired a high-neck printed sweater with a high-waisted denim skirt.
Who among us can’t relate to Barb? She’s the best of all things awkward and left behind, and we had to put together a look to honor her. We chose a navy puffer jacket over a printed button down, a pair of mom jeans and timberland boots. Add some oversized glasses and ruffles to your look to bring out even more of her fashion identity!
STEVE, JONATHAN, MIKE, LUCAS, DUSTIN, etc...
If you’re a guy, just throw on a puffer vest, a long sleeved raglan and a sheepskin-lined corduroy jacket or maybe a colorblocked baseball cap and you’re good to go!
We hope you’re inspired to channel some Stranger Things in your outfits this fall. If you do, we want to see it! Post your outfit on Instagram and tag us @freestyleclothingexchange for a chance to be featured on our page!
