The Lust List – Blasts from the past

Whether you were born in the 60s or in the 90s, there’s no doubt that we all experience a little nostalgia from time to time. So for this week’s Lust List we focused on some retro inspired fashion and home pieces that’ll have you taking a trip down memory lane.

If you’re still lusting after that (now vintage) technology, flash back to the good old days with a modern take on the cassette player. Whether you like reminiscing with old tapes or mixing up some new ones, this player still functions like the classic 80s style but with a modern sleeker look. If you were more of a vinyl fanatic, it may not be time to throw away those dusty stacks just yet as record players are making a reappearance to refresh any home with a bright, musical feel. Or if you miss those grainy photographs from yesteryear, the polaroid camera has been given a modern revamp so that you can enjoy your memories and photographs instantly.

When it comes to fashion, flares made a comeback last season and it looks like they are here to stay for SS16. As arguably one of the most flattering styles of jean, they’ll not only have you resisting the urge to point your fingers in the air disco-style, but you’ll also be channeling your inner 70s model.

If you only want to add a subtle touch to your wardrobe, pick accessories such as a silk scarf or a classic style of shades that can be worn with multiple looks to add that cool and casual ‘old school’ vibe. Or if you want to make more of a statement, opt for a modern twist on the iconic paper bag lunch that’s been updated to be carried as a stylish accessory that also keeps your snacks safe. Adding key accessories around your home too will not only bring that sense of nostalgia, but add a bright and cheerful uplift for spring.

Below we’ve chosen some of our favourite pieces to get you started, from modernised additions to some trusty old classics.
