Forget the celebrations and fireworks of the 4th of July, we’re getting ready for monsters, nose bleeds and lots of adventure; “Stranger Things 3” will premiere on the 4th July, bringing back the group of teens from Hawkins and the best of our beloved ’80s fashion! The previous seasons 1 and 2 were massive hits, one of the many fans of Stranger Things is fashion designer and creative director of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière, who invited the cast to his headquarter in Paris.

In this season, Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, discovers the magical world of fashion. Max takes her to the mall for a make-over and Eleven finds her new style; colourful graphics shirts, high-waisted pants with suspenders and bright scrunchies, totally ‘80s, of course.

Her adoptive father, the Hawkins Police Chief Jim Hopper, also has a new look this season, wearing “cutting edge stuff,” as he explains to his deputy. Inspired by the TV hit of the ’80s “Magnum PI” starring Tom Selleck, Hopper wears now colourful Hawaiian shirts, which are now quite a thing again, light denim Wrangler jeans and topsider shoes.

Season 3 happens during summer 1985. Costume designer Amy Parris re-created the typical fashion of the era using vintage ’80s fabrics and dead stock vintage pieces she found on e-bay.

To celebrate the return of the super-awarded Netflix series in style, you will need neon colour shirts, yellow tanks and mid-length cut-off denim shorts, rainbow T-shirts with stripes and graphics, belted paper-bag-waist pants, tropical prints, summery drawstring shorts and, of course, bright coloured scrunchies.

Now all you have to do is make some popcorn and enjoy “Stranger Things!, we know we will!
