Everyone’s pretty much excited for Stranger Things Season 3 because finally, there’s *another* show to binge-watch and talk about with friends. Pretty sure it’ll still be awesome, with its nail-biting cliffhangers, crazy-good soundtrack, and fun ‘80s outfits.

There’s no denying that the pieces we see on Stranger Things end up trending. At the PLDT-Smart Stranger Things Fun Fair held last July 4 to 7 at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium, we spotted influencers wearing the most fun 80’s outfits. So here’s what to try next and how to pull it off:

1. Bold Prints

The ‘80s were known for their loud fashion statements, and what better way to stand out than with striking prints.

Like Aryanna Epperson, make your outfit look cohesive by picking one color from the print and centering your pieces around that. Definitely a fun piece for the Fun Fair.

2. Stripes

Speaking of prints, if you’re not too keen on looking busy, stripes are the way to go. Just play with colors and choose bright iterations so you don’t look too somber.

3. Headbands

Headbands were everywhere in the ‘80s, and Stranger Things proves they’re as cool now as they were then. Seen on the ever-so-cute Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Max (Sadie Sink), they make a huge statement. To update the ‘80s version, try a thick velvet or satin headband that lays flat—it’ll still be fun and bright without being loud.

4. Color Blocking

This trend might be a little tricky for some, so here’s a tip to help you stay coordinated: Pair neutral versions of your favorite color combinations. Love blue and red? Match a burgundy top with navy bottoms and you’ve got yourself an office-appropriate color combo. Itching to combine yellow and green? Match olive and mustard pieces for a safari-inspired look.

Yanna Cowper makes this trend look doable and fun by pairing a safe denim jumper with a bright pink crop top and a neon green belt bag.

5. Ringer Tee

As seen on Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder), it’s a great update on a plain white tee. Pick one with brightly colored rings, and match that with light-wash denim jeans and sneakers for a casual and youthful vibe.

Take notes from Rookie Reyes: Wear a more modern take with a cropped plain white tee paired with blue, high-waisted denim pants and an oversized shoulder-padded blazer for a more sophisticated take. Don’t forget the big hoops to finish the look.

6. Nautical

Based on Steve (Joe Keery) and Robin’s (Maya Hawke) Scoops Ahoy uniform, the nautical theme isn’t just for sailors.

7. Brightly Colored Swimsuits

Who says swimsuits are just for the pool? To wear yours in the city, pair it with the appropriate bottoms. Lunch with your friends? Put on a two-toned swimsuit with jeans and sneakers. Going on a date? Wear a swimsuit with a straight neckline with a pleated midi skirt and sandals.
