Style Tricks We Stole From Grandma

Things we learned from Grandma: Butterscotch flavour is delicious, pearls are timeless and knitting is a necessary life skill. But little did we know when we were younger, our sweet little gran was actually teaching us ~so much more~. From her thin-rimmed glasses to her sensible runners, gram knew what was up in the way of practical fashion.

Scroll through for our ode to Grandma, and see what fashion staples we stole from gram FOR the ‘gram!

SWEATERS

GRANDMA
Northern Reflections is the Aritzia for grandmas. We all know that crewnecks, cardigans and knitted sweaters are the secret to Grandma’s ~warmth~

 

FOR THE ‘GRAM
Aspire to be as cozy as your grandma by sporting a classy coloured cardigan or hand-knitted jumper like Jessica Alba.

 

BLAZERS

GRANDMA
Grannies are straight up bosses, just look at their matching pant suits. When it comes to bargain hunting at thrift stores, grocery stores and flea markets, they mean business.

 

FOR THE ‘GRAM
Keep it totally ‘80s with a boxy shouldered blazer. This Heathers-approved garb will make you as cool as Alexa Chung–and almost as cool as your gram.

 

GLASSES

GRANDMA
The no. 1 must-have fashion accessory for grandmas is their eyeglasses–the bigger the lens, the better to see you, dear. But honestly, just try to look as cool as Iris Apfel in those glasses. Not gonna happen.

 

FOR THE ‘GRAM
Oversize vintage eyeglasses are no longer considered outdated. And honestly, if Rihanna is on board, we’re on that ship.

 

LOAFERS

GRANDMA
Penny loafers have been a staple shoe for decades. Grannies swear by their classic design and comfort.

 

FOR THE ‘GRAM
Look like a dime with penny loafers. Slip on a pair and rock them with a floral frock like Dakota Johnson.

 

TOP HANDLE BAGS

GRANDMA
As the coveted accessory in any grandma’s wardrobe, their top handle bags are not only fully stocked with Werther’s, but they ooze a ‘60s retro vibe.

 

FOR THE ‘GRAM
Fresh out the spring 2017 runway, top handles are the top accessory this season. A grandma bag can make any outfit look more sophisticated, and its timeless shape carries all of your essentials.
