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.
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.
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.
Alexa, Kendall, Chiara… to say that geeky glasses have been given the It girl seal of approval would be a severe understatement.
