Whistles muse: Winona Ryder

It’s impossible to explore fashion’s current obsession with the nineties without landing on several Pinterest pages worth of Winona Ryder. News of her latest sci-fi Netflix series, Stranger Things filled us with excitement, nerves (it’s a horror) and plenty of nostalgia. We all know and love her from cult films such as Heathers (1988), Beetlejuice (1988), Edward Scissorhands (1990) and Mermaids (1990).

After cementing her acting career in the late eighties, she continued to take on left field roles becoming a credible actor and offbeat fashion icon.

We’ve collated some of our favourite Winona fashion moments that inspired us then and find new relevance now. Be it the perfect washed denim, relaxed shirting or signature leather jacket.
