Are you Edgy or Lollipop Glam? Take the Quiz to Find Out!
Get out the 8mm film and the synthesisers, cause Stranger Things 4 has dropped! It’s everyone’s favourite wholesome show about childhood friendships and flesh-eating monsters.
The Netflix hit is an exercise in ‘80s nostalgia from start to finish. A love letter to the 1980s if you will: when friends worked at video rental stores and ice cream parlours, Saturdays consisted of a day at the roller rink or community pool and there wasn’t anything cooler than an older sibling’s vintage Ford Mustang.
And the fashion! Whether you favour Mrs. Wheelers pool getup (that bright pink nylon bathing suit and blue eyeliner combo!), or Eleven’s punk phase – the ‘80s were a delight for fashion. Anything goes!

Mostly As – Your 80s Look is Lollipop Glam!
Why hello there, you look smashing! You favour statement profiles, clashing patterns and vivid colour. Think Whitney Houston declaring that she just wants to dance with somebody.
This styling is favoured by the more overtly feminine characters in the Stranger Things crew – like Nancy and Karen Wheeler, as well as Erica Sinclair. These are tough, strong-minded characters that are unapologetically themselves and don’t let their love of pink get in the way of standing up for themselves. Pretty rad.
To rock this looks, opt for a pair of statement hoops or drops. Layer your look with pops of colour, and don’t shy away from chunky profiles. Shop the look here.
Mostly Bs – Your 80s Look is Edgy Glam!
Make an entrance, darling! This bold, boss look is all about commanding authority while remaining effortlessly glamorous. Think Madonna’s iconic black and gold look from Desperately Seeking Susan.
This styling is better suited to the personalities of Eleven, Robin and Max – strong characters who own their space and don’t let anyone else dictate their choices.
To recreate this look, choose gold jewellery and layer it with touches of black. Opt for statement studs or drops and layered necklaces with bold embellishments. Don’t forget about hair accessories – an oversized black scrunchie or a eye-catching scarf really tie the look together! Shop the look here.
