Kickin' It Old School

Chris Klemens

A lot of brands like Champion, Reebok, and Fila are making a comeback in a big way.

I am excited about this because I grew up loving and wearing these brands. One of my favorite memories as a kid was when my family would go on vacation, my brothers and I would always get our own matching top and bottom windbreaker track suits, and I remember just loving those airport outfits. Who knew that I was serving airport looks before Kendall Jenner was even born...

Anyways, I was thrift shopping one weekend, and I found a bunch of nylon jackets that looked like they were pulled right from 8 year-old me's closet. I also picked up these Reebok sneakers that I wrote about in my March 2017 Favorites post and realized I had to pair up the two. 

I'm absolutely obsessed with this outfit and am on the hunt for more jackets like this (I have a few that I have my eye on listed below). I love that this is a more modern take on what I wore as a kid. I've been really into wearing white socks and having them show, and with the vintage shoes and distressed cut on my pants, I think it just creates a really great look.
