Coastal Grandma

Don’t let the name fool you and rest assured, this isn’t a matronly style. This style aesthetic is all about a clean, classic style inspired by luxury, oceanfront life with a glass of wine.

To pull off the look, we’ve got you covered with the essential pieces to have in your wardrobe. Think nautical chic with natural fibers and a color palette of neutrals, navy, white and stripes along with anchor prints, casual dresses, and wedges. 

Crisp Linens

Crisp Linens are the go-to piece to nail Coastal Grandma Chic. This look is normally seen in the form of an oversize button down. However, with the Shirty Dress growing in popularity there is now a new evolution of this look.

Stripes

Stripes are the nautical part of this look and a key element of Coastal Grandma style. For a chic look you can opt for the pin striped lined blue shirt and white shorts pictured below. Or a classic striped cardigan. It is the perfect piece to drape around an all-white outfit to look Coastal Chic.

White Flowy Pieces

We love wearing white during the Summer and it fits so perfectly into this trend. White is classic, timeless, and elegant which is what this trend is all about. Clean, flowy pieces that drape with movement and sway give off an airy, carefree feel. One of the staples associated with this style is an oversized white button-down shirt.

In keeping with those essential fresh whites, Eyelet fabrics are another one to wear. The crisp cotton fabric with soft and delicate feminine details never go out of style and keeps you cool too.
