The Coastal Grandmother aesthetic has evolved into a more youthful and chic version known as the Coastal Granddaughter style, and it's taking the Gen Z fashion world by storm. But if you're still wondering what these styles entail, fear not – we've got you covered:
These days, style inspiration seems to be drawn from waves and beaches. We've witnessed the rise of mermaid core, and now there's a new trend in town – say hello to the Coastal Granddaughter. Move aside, traditional grandmother and granddaughter fashion; the Coastal Granddaughter aesthetic is here to shine.
And guess what? It's not limited to grandmothers; anyone can embrace this aesthetic, and it's mostly making waves among Gen Z.
Imagine the characters from Nancy Meyers movies, such as Diane Keaton in "Something’s Gotta Give" and Meryl Streep in "It’s Complicated."
Think of real-life icons like Ina Garten, Oprah, and Martha Stewart (although Martha Stewart doesn't completely align with the trend).
This aesthetic revolves around themes like home-cooked meals, creating elaborate salads, cozy interior decor, a connection to coastal living (though not mandatory), and a wardrobe predominantly featuring white linen fabrics.
For those looking to embrace the Coastal Granddaughter style, TikTok user Diana Triesit likened it to an "old white rich lady" look, with a youthful twist – the "coastal granddaughter" appearance.
There are three main principles for dressing in line with the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic: classic, comfort, and chic.
