Coastal Grandma Style: 7 Fashion-Forward Ways to Wear the Look Well

The internet is buzzing about the coastal grandma trend, with all ages eager to embrace its comfortable yet very polished vibe.

What makes the look fresh is when it is void of anchors, whales and other kitschy designs and instead pairs classic linen, cotton and lightweight cashmere in neutrals that mimic the sand and sea. Think coverage that automatically provides sun protection without being too hot and stiff, and sensible yet still very stylish footwear and accessories combined in a way that’s flattering to a wide range of body types.

In this month’s blog we share 7 key pieces for wearing this trend well. Enjoy! 

#1. High Waisted Linen Pants
Breezy and easy!


#2. Button Down Shirts
Linen or cotton — your choice. They go to work and lunch as easily as they go to the beach.


#3. Cotton Bucket Hats
Keeps the sun at bay while topping the look off in just the right way.


#4. Mules
These backless wonders sensibly ground the look while keeping things light.


#5 Chunky Cardigans
The key layering piece of the trend!


#6. Straw Totes
Roomy and oversized to keep all your summer loot in one easy place.


#7 Cashmere Turtlenecks
Ultimate sun protection as we wind down summer. Think Diane Keaton in the hit movie “Somethings Gotta Give.” So chic!
