The Lazy Girl's Guide to Granny Chic


It’s a trend that’s dominated the runways for the past two seasons and everyone’s obsessed with it, taking clothes from your granny’s closet and taking these looks to the street. It’s not all about wearing vintage clothes, but mixing pieces from your wardrobe to create something fresh and exciting. And it doesn’t necessarily mean going out and buying a whole wardrobe of new clothing (although one or two pieces couldn’t hurt… could it?) but reinvention by adding appliques and patches to your old clothes. Even adding something as simple as a scarf tied in a bow to a blouse or dress can instantly have a transformative effect on an entire outfit. The possibilities are endless; the only real limits are the ones you set yourself within your own imagination.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with two piece dresses and using these as the basis for an amazingly eclectic outfit. StyleWe have an amazing selection of really gorgeous dresses that don’t have the same designer price tag. These include two piece dresses with pleated skirts and the occasional pussy bow blouse. Rather unsurprisingly, some of my favourite pieces feature gorgeous embroidery, and I’m a sucker for animal-themed appliques emblazoning jackets and knitted sweaters.

One of my favourite street style looks inspired by granny chic is pairing floral tea dresses with something as unlikely as a ‘sukajan’ or Japanese souvenir jackets. Pulling off this look is as simple as finding a dress and jacket combination with both feature oriental motifs!
