This Spring, the revival is on at Westfield Manukau

It’s official: everything old is cool again. As the sun makes its return, this season Westfield Manukau is here to help you bring back the best nostalgic fashion, beauty and food trends of yesteryear.

From retro kicks to Wagon Wheels, here’s your ultimate guide to putting a new twist on some old favourites.

Fashion: The retro sneakers and sunglasses you need now

It’s time to hit refresh on the accessories front this season, and nothing packs a punch like neon. Try ’90s-inspired sneakers and sunglasses for an instant wardrobe update that will be sure to spice up your life.

For fresh kicks, head to Platypus, Footlocker, Stirling Sports Superstore, Converse, or Kids Footlocker for the wee ones.

To shield yourself from that long-awaited spring sun, Sunglass Hut or Lentes & Marcos, or OPSM will have you covered – literally.

Beauty: Bold hair and makeup and where to get it

We hope you’ve got a crimping tong lying around somewhere – because ‘80s beauty is officially back. It’s time to get experimenting – for all your hair styling needs, Vivo Hair & Beauty, Rodney Wayne or Synergy Hair and can get you set. On the makeup front, bold blue and pink on the eyelids will help you make a statement, and a bit of glitter never hurt anyone, either. Head to M.A.C Cosmetics, Farmers beauty department, Life Pharmacy or the Chemist Warehouse to stock up.

Food: Nostalgic snacks you’ll love

Remember <insert snack e.g., iced vovo or jelly pudding>? Get ready to work some nostalgia into your spring entertaining. A number of brands have created the ultimate throwbacks this season, like Arnott’s with their range of chocolate blocks made with Scotch Fingers, Wagon Wheels and Ginger Nuts, and Smith’s who have infused their chips with Mac n’ Cheese. Get on board the old school bandwagon at a supermarket near you – Countdown has the goods. For more inspiration, see our floral, fruit jelly recipe

Dining: Where to make a pit stop in centre

All shopped out? Settle in for some old fashioned diner fare during your trip to Westfield Manukau, with a donut from Epiphany Cafe, a milkshake from New Zealand Natural or Char Bar, or hit up a burger joint like Burger King or McDonalds.

No matter how you choose to throw it back this season, Westfield Manukau is here to help you shake things up.
