 Now that the weather is changing, we're spending a lot more time inside, binge watching our favorite shows.

Between HBO Go, Netflix and Hulu, there's enough on-demand television to last through rainy days, sick days, blizzards and more. There's a show for every taste, person and city. So whether you're into spending time with your girls like Issa Dee on Insecure or monster hunts like the characters in Stranger Things 2, you're guaranteed eight to ten hours of entertainment from the comfort of your home.

The best part: Binge watching television is a great habit for the fashion obsessed. Styling is such an important part of storytelling that our favorite characters provide an endless supply of inspiration. Plus, in contrast to watching a single episode in one sitting, binging on your favorite show exposes you to numerous outfits that help to define that character, and thus your fall wardrobe.

Stranger Things 2

The Netflix sci-fi series is filled with enough '80s-inspired style to make anyone nostalgic. The mom jeans, pastels, metal lunch boxes and hair scrunchies transport us to the time of Ghostbusters and kid-led narratives (Think: The Babysitter's Club and Scooby Doo). If you're looking for a good fall fashion mystery, grab your favorite pal and head to your local thrift store. If that's not your jam, plenty of your favorite styles from Stranger Things are currently on trend.
