Mixed-ish star Arica Himmel made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show. During the Monday, April 12 broadcast, the two discussed the hit ABC sitcom and ’80s fashion. As Mixed-ish fans know, the show is set in the ’80s, which is an awkward time for the family and the children. The ’80s is known for its colorful and sometimes garish fashion trends.
Himmel and Clarkson talked about which trend should stay in the ’80s. However, the talk show host would like to bring back one fashion trend. This brought up an interesting discussion in the comments section of the Instagram post.
Kelly Clarkson and Arica Himmel discuss ’80s fashion trends
On Tuesday, the official Instagram account for The Kelly Clarkson Show shared a clip from Clarkson’s interview. The caption reads: “You can keep ONE thing from the ’80s – what is it?” In the clip, Kelly Clarkson asks Arica Himmel the same question. The Mixed-ish star shared her thoughts about ’80s fashion trends.
“Is there anything about the ’80s that you wish was still around?” Clarkson asked.
“Yes, a lot of the fashion. I love the acid wash jeans,” Himmel said. “And then the matching with like the turtlenecks, and leg warmers. I think that’s kind of cute.”
The “Behind These Hazel Eyes” singer agreed with the young star. Clarkson admitted that she used to “steal” her mom’s stirrup pants. She thought they would come in “handy” because they didn’t ride up. However, this interview wasn’t as revealing as Clarkson’s last interview with country superstar Clint Black. She got TMI about a story from her concert days.
