Being a Pinup model (who is also a major sneakerhead) I get to wear lots of retro and vintage inspired outfits and today’s post is all about going from retro style to streetwear, inspired by these fabulous Nike Air Max 90 Recraft sneakers in the awesome Hyper Grape color.
Hear is my before photo and you can see I’m wearing a 50s purple plaid circle skirt paired with a black 1950s bombshell inspired blouse, my matching vintage purple shoes and purse.
A little about the Air Max: Released originally in 1990 and designed by renowned Nike designer Tinker Hatfield. In celebrating the 30th anniversary of the sneaker in 2020, Nike has lots of new colorways and collabs coming. Hyper Grape was released in the US on January 9, 2020.
Now you can see how I styled my street wear look. I paired the skirt with my Nike Air Max 90s and a Nike sportswear pullover in purple. I love that being a curvy girl Nike is leading the way for size inclusivity in sportswear and I think the outfit is totally onpoint and so effortlessly put together for a casual yet feminine look and my sneakers being the inspiration. I love these kicks! Accessorizing is easy enough; just grab your favorite cross-body bag or a wristlet.
You can even take this out for date night by adding a sleeveless sweater and a cardigan with some sequence. Your Air Max 90s will be the only accessory you need and heads will turn!!
