The key to nailing this aesthetic is to create an outfit which combines retro threads with sensible, dad-friendly pieces. Think flea-market finds paired with technical accessories that you might take on a hike
To begin, don a striped knitted jacket
that the likes of Eric would wear in That 70s Show
. On your bottom half, amp up the sophisticated vibes and go for a pair of suit trousers in corduroy
. The fabric was pretty hyped during the decade and still proves popular this season after featuring heavily on the AW17 catwalks
of Prada and Marni.
Now that you’ve got your base layer covered, add a cold-weather-ready jacket from The North Face
over the top – a functional favourite among all dads. On foot, opt for a pair of chunky ASICS GEL-Diablo OG trainers in a colourway that matches your outerwear. To finish, sling on a practical backpack and channel your pop’s reading specs with a pair of clear-framed glasses.
