STRANGER THINGS STYLE TIPS

By Sarah Kershaw, October 27, 2017

It's back! If, like us, you're more than ready to binge on season two of Netflix's already-cult sci-fi classic Stranger Things, you'll be glad to hear it's back. But before we catch up with what's been going on with Will Byers and the gang in Hawkins, Indiana (or its equivalent Upside Down, for that matter), let's remind ourselves of the awesomeness of the show's retro steez. Here's how it can influence your fall/winter wardrobe.

The color palette is on point

Who’d have thought brown, brown and more brown would look so good? Whether it’s a shearling jacket, corduroy pants or ribbed knitwear, all retro gear look immediately retro-er rendered in tan, mustard and a chocolate brown murkier than Murkwood.

Lucas’ sweater has all the fall tones (extra points for the ringer neckline), while this guy has taken the "fallen leaves" section of the Pantone chart and run with it. Burgundy, orange, gold, khaki — you name it, it'll work with the Stranger Things aesthetic.

A cord-collared jacket is a man's best friend

Bless Mike. He’s not the coolest of the crew (obvs that’s Eleven) but boy, does he know how to rock a cord collar. Your dad’s probably got a gray Harrington jacket like this stashed somewhere and you should definitely hunt it out.

Updated with a white skater tee, tonal pants and suede sneakers — like this guy — it’ll bring pleasingly minimal throwback feels to your weekend get-up.

Drab jackets can be anything but

Sorry for the major spoiler, but you'll all have seen the trailers by now anyway. It looks like Eleven is back in season two, with a new haircut and a heavy-duty khaki shacket which is making us all jealous. A collared, be-pocketed, hard-wearing shirt/coat/jacket hybrid like this is a worthy addition to any winter wardrobe, as our psychokinetic friend knows.

This guy's taken the sludgy tone of Eleven's cover-up and translated it into his own hoodie-meets-coach jacket mash-up. Accessorized with a very FW17 quarter-zip neckline and a very Things-appropriate plaid-collared sweater, he's managed to create the ultimate Hawkins/Paris Fashion Week look.

Nike Cortez are always cool

Steve is the classic school bad boy with the extremely bouffed 'do who wears a ringer tee with pride and Nike Cortez like they were made for him.

The all-time-favorite retro silhouette perfectly encapsulates the mood of both Netflix's big splash and this coming winter season, which has sporty, athletic, '80s vibes down.

Boiler suits are surprisingly versatile

The controversial all-in-one trend is all in a day's Demogorgon-destroying work for the boys of Hawkins. Inspired by the '80s classic Ghostbusters, they've evidently decided that the best way to kill an alternate-reality-dwelling monster is with strong gray boiler suits — as far as we're concerned, it's a look that annihilates all fashion competition, too.

Case in point, this dude, strolling around and looking cool in New York City. Adding in fresh white sneaks and a logo cap makes the look more everyday wearable and less "exterminator chic" (though olive drab colorway and tool bag keeps in it firmly utilitarian territory).
