Go Retro: Fresh Throwback Looks from The Old School

From Kappa to Fila, JD Women show off what you should be wearing this season.


It’s no secret that the retro trend is killing it right now. Whether it’s a classic pair of Superstars or a fresh Ellesse top, you don’t have to look far ‘til you see someone rocking something from yesteryear.

Brands like Ellesse, Fila, Reebok and New Balance have all got their throwback game on lock this year, re-introducing 90s style for a new generation of statement makers. Now we can add Kappa to the ever-growing list; JD Women just dropped a totally on-point collection of classic, old school-inspired designs from the Italian sportswear icons.

We’ve rounded up a selection of choice retro looks from the King of Trainers that make an instant impact when you hit the streets. Stuck for style inspiration? Make these your go-to for vintage vibes with a fresh edge.


Up first, this hot-off-the-press Crop Crew Sweatshirt from Kappa is a must-have for those curled-up-on-couch chill seshes in front of the TV. The grey marl colourway adds a touch of athletic style, while the crop fit also makes it perfect for statement looks when you step out.


Ellesse have had a big, big 2016, revisiting classic looks and refreshing them with a modern edge to massive effect. This Allie Half Zip Hoody goes in with vintage athletic striping, but the crop cut keeps it bang on-trend for the present. Make it your after-gym essential or hit the streets and get heads turning on the go.

Fila sweatshirt

Sensing a pattern here? With the cold in full swing, we’re going for warming crew necks and hoodies to see you through the chilly months. Fila’s big, bold colour-blocking and simple, streamlined looks are massive right now and this Newton Crew Sweatshirt is no exception. A clean, effortless essential built for off-duty style, layer this under a gilet for snug warmth when you head into town.


When it comes to your feet, we’ve got you covered in the shape of two iconic kicks. The legendary Classic Leather from Reebok has been around since 1983, but its footwear dominance shows no sign of slowing down. These triple-black treats give your sneaker style a step up. A solid choice no statement maker should be without.


A little bit younger, but still old enough for retro vibes, these 996s from New Balance first hit the streets in 1989. Famed for their cushioning, lace up with these legends and be envied and admired wherever you wear them.
