The 5 best retro sportswear pieces | Circa
The retro sportswear trend shows no signs of slowing down. By now, you should be repping ’90s-inspired big logos and relaxed fit tracksuit tops and sweats.
With fresh designs for the new season, retro sportswear has never looked so good. Here are the best pieces that will throwback your wardrobe to the golden era.
Kappa Dixon Sweat
Fresh to Circa, Kappa’s latest drop has taken it directly back to where it all began; the ’90s. Their AW18 collection features plenty of big logos and taped sleeves. And, if you’re looking for easy access into the trend, the black and white colourway is the perfect place to start.
We’re especially excited about the Dixon Sweat, which features the iconic repeat Kappa logo tape to the sleeves.
Pair with your favourite tracksuit pants to complete the look. Take a size up to re-create the true vintage feel.
Champion Colour Block Script Logo Sweat
For the fearless among you, Champion Colour Block Script Logo Sweat offers high statement style while perfectly in-keeping with the retro trend. A soft nylon fabric creates a true vintage aesthetic, while bold panels and the large script logo take it back to the glory days.
Guaranteed to be unlike anything else in your wardrobe.
FILA Parka Track Top
Track jackets are an absolute staple of any sportswear trend, and for the perfect throwback style we’ve picked out the Fila Parka Track Top.
FILA is a brand steeped in heritage, constantly keeping close ties to their ’70s roots. Since then the brand has been intertwined with a range of sports, including tennis and the football casual scene, as well as becoming an indie classic.
With a classic zip up funnel neck collar and a retro panel design, the Parka Track Top is a worthy contender for any best retro sportswear list.
Ideal with jeans and chunky trainers for a laid-back look, the beauty of track jackets is they can also be layered under bigger pieces of outerwear through colder weather.
Ellesse Sorbo Gilet
Ellesse have been coming through with much needed injections of ’90s style for a while now, and with an exciting range of overhead jackets, track top and relaxed t-shirts, their latest collection is next level.
There’s plenty to choose from to create a vintage ensemble, but the Sorbo Gilet has been a best-seller. With bold block panelling, wadded lining for insulation, and a ripstop nylon fabric for high durability.
The only way it could be more ’90s is if it had a built in pocket for your portable CD player.
New Balance X-90 Sneakers
No good retro sportswear outfit would be complete without the right trainers, and there’s really only one winner this season. For that perfect throwback, you’re going to want the New Balance X-90 (I mean, come on – the clue is in the name).
With a stunning pink and green colour flash design, this pair of sneakers screams 90s style. A sleek design keeps things contemporary, while the REVlite midsole and premium cushioning will keep you raving (or relaxing) into the early hours.
And there you have it, our top 5 retro sportswear pieces. If you aren’t too busy reliving the ’90s by watching Saved By The Bell or listening to your Boyz II Men CD, shop new in at Circa to find even more glorious throwback pieces.
