Embracing the Eclectic Grandpa Trend in 2024

January 6, 2024

As we usher in 2024, the fashion landscape is poised to embrace the eclectic grandpa trend. This unique style seamlessly combines the comfort and coziness reminiscent of your grandfather's wardrobe with a contemporary flair, incorporating accessories that elevate the ensemble to new fashion heights. Celebrities such as Zoe Kravitz, Emma Chamberlain, and the Hadid sisters have effortlessly embodied this aesthetic, making it a trend to watch for the upcoming year. Girls, let's delve into this aesthetic together.

Chapter 1: Layering is the Key

Embracing the grandpa trend means mastering the art of winter layering. The grandpa layering aesthetic is all about combining shirts, sweaters, vests, and cardigans. Picture a fisherman sweater paired with a printed shirt, classic Levi's jeans, and a timeless overcoat. Complete the look with accessories like flamboyant glasses, colored woolen scarves, and trendy rainboots – a must-have for 2024. Tuck your trousers casually into the boots for that extra touch of styling finesse.

Chapter 2: Springing into Prints

Spring calls for an explosion of prints, whether on a long-sleeve shirt or a vest. Add a white t-shirt underneath for an extra flair. To keep the look from feeling too stuffy, opt for earthy-colored lined pants. Finishing with footwear—a pair of ugly sandals with socks—is the best stylistic choice to convey this aesthetic; any modern or vintage accessory is acceptable.

Chapter 3: Summer, the King of Lazy Pants

Summer invites the lazy pants trend, featuring a vintage print t-shirt or sweatshirt paired with pajama-inspired bottoms or viral shorts that look like men's underwear in different colors. Elevate the ensemble with flat loafers and spice it up a little by adding accessories such as silk scarves, vintage sunglasses, and bright jewelry. Modern meets vintage in the perfect summer look.
