A designer’s muse plays a significant role in the outcome of a season’s collection. Edie Sedgwick, Sophia Coppola, Ines de la Fressange, Bianca Jagger, and countless other chic AF women have served as archetypes for how to dress thanks to their imitable taste and flair for cultivating a personal style. So who is the muse of choice this spring? You may be surprised. Turns out, everyone is eschewing the expected and nodding toward none other than the granny. That’s right, stylish old ladies are the cool crowd now and the five trends below solidify our theory.
It makes sense if you really think about it. We inherit everything from delicious recipes to strands of pearls from our grandmothers, so it’s a no-brainer that we’d channel a geriatric-inspired aesthetic before actually reaching the advanced age range in question. What’s more, it usually entails opting for comfort, which means you can look good and feel good — always the goal, really.
Ahead, see if you’ve already adopted these five granny-inspired trends and if not, decide which ones you’ll be hitting the gas on this spring.
