The Ultimate 2022 Coastal Grandmother Style Guide
Lifestyle - News
To truly be a coastal grandmother, stylist Liv Schriber says the main goal is to mirror the ocean’s calm mood, and look effortless while still maintaining comfort and chicness. The first step is to raid your mother and grandmother’s closets and search for comfy and timeless layers.
Natural materials, neutral tones, and creative textures are must-haves for the coastal grandmother aesthetic. For inspiration for your head-to-toe look, the Franco Sarto Carolynn 5 Loafer has a dreamy color and a modest platform bottom that is stylish yet subtle.
Sweater vest
Grandmothers do not compromise on quality, and cashmere is a classically luxe material. On a chilly spring or fall day at the beach, cashmere layers will keep you warm and cozy, and a great coastal-grandma buy is the The Oversized V-Neck Vest at State Cashmere.
Breezy pants
Flowy, pull-on pants with no zippers to fuss with are the way to go for carefree coastal grandmothers. When shopping for casual pants, such as these ECUPPER Elastic Waist Cropped Pants from Amazon, keep neutral and earthy colors in mind.
Baggy overalls
There’s no better outfit for squeezing fresh fruit juice and trimming the hydrangeas than baggy overalls. The coastal grandmother aesthetic is “sophisticated and laidback,” says stylist MaryKathryn Arthur, so choose overalls that still make you look grown-up, not kiddish.
