Who knew your grandad’s wardrobe hid so many style se­crets?

The ‘bor­rowed from the boys’ trend is noth­ing new. Sharp blaz­ers, straight-leg jeans and grungey band tees are just a few of the pieces that have gained cult sar­to­rial sta­tus thanks, in no small part, to our boyfriends’ wardrobes.

How­ever, our ap­petite for allth­ings fash­ion means that once again we’re look­ing to the guys for style in­spi­ra­tion – only this time, we’ve set our sights on an older man. If you want to be on trend RN, Grandpa knows where it’s at. Vel­vet smok­ing jack­ets, sleek slip­pers and high­waisted slacks are just some of this sea­son’s stand­out buys; all of which are com­mon­place in any gent’s wardrobe.

That said, it’s could-be bi­fo­cals and natty knits that have been a ma­jor hit with the A-list. Si­enna’s £990 Chloé knit? In­spired. But don’t fret; you don’t need a star’s salary to get in on the dap­per ac­tion, as th­ese fru­gal finds prove.

Su­per Slacks

In­cred­i­bly flat­ter­ing and im­mea­sur­ably com­fort­able, it’s no won­der th­ese strides have be­come uni­form for grand­pas the world over...

Give th­ese knits an edgy over­haul with leather trousers or, for a more prim take, try wear­ing with a lace pen­cil skirt and pointed flats.

Sleek SLIPS

it might be olivia Palermo’s shoe of choice but when it comes to slip­pers, no one’s got game like gramps. try luxe em­broi­dered, patent or faux ponyskin styles.
