Anything pre-2000 is generally considered retro or vintage. It’s hard to believe that even the turn of the century was nearly 20 years ago. However, Reebok Classics, PUMA and Nike Air Max are ensuring that the pre-2000 decades are not forgotten and are ever present in the power we possess to express ourselves through timeless retro style fabrics and colourways.
They were part of our everyday closet, whether it was for school or socialising with friends. No one knew they would get this big and this trendy. Nowadays, we perceive wearing these key, classic pieces as “making a statement” and the Reebok Classics collection presents head-to-toe, grab-and-go styles that make people want to stop looking at social media for ideas and instead at the fashion on the street in front of them.
For men, the Reebok Classics Franchise Track Jacket and pants creates an outfit-in-one with throwback colours in white, navy blue and red. The soft, pastel colour of the Reebok Classic Cropped Tank Top is also a great piece for women to match with Reebok Straight Leg Cropped Sweatpants.
For women, the statement is all in the shoe, as modelled by Ariana Grande herself and the Reebok Freestyle HighTop Satin Bow Shoe, with premium, crisp-white leather upper and Reebok Freestyle HighTop Metallic Shoe.
The ‘80s was bold and daring, so if you’re going for retro style, why not shout out about it? The PUMA T7 BBoy Track Jacket and pants are not only scarlet red with contrasting white panels so you stand out from any crowd, the polyester fabric has been made to feel like the shell, crepe-like feel of those old-school tracksuits you instantly think about in those ‘80s music videos.
We like it baggy and it gives us serious confidence to wear our silhouette-hugging pants with a clean, colour-block pair of sneakers. Pairing the PUMA Archive T7 Bomber Jacket and PUMA Classics T7 Logo Leggings couldn’t make it easier.
Oh, and speaking of oversized, the shoe has to speak as loud as the clothing. Nike Air Max not only says “volume” it also gives you just the right amount of platform for height with the midsole Air Sole unit.
