We end with a shower curtain that can’t help but look a bit ’80s. Since I’m a big fan of ’80s design, I was drawn to this curtain like a kid to candy. Retro candy, that is! Introducing the Black Waffle Stripe Shower Curtain from Sears, featuring waffle weave textured stripes. And yes, this one is also available in a range of color options. But they probably won’t look as ’80s…
