How to Achieve the #Coastal Grandmother Look

There’s a new trend sweeping Tik Tok and this one might take some explaining. The #coastal grandmother trend has recently been gaining traction, with around 1 billion views on the hashtag and thousands of videos.

So, what is a coastal grandmother exactly and how do you achieve the look?

“It’s a term that I coined for this aesthetic,” says Tik Tok star Lex Nicoleta.

“If you love Nancy Meyer’s movies, coastal vibes, recipes and cooking, Ina Garten, interiors and more, there’s a good chance you might be a coastal grandmother.”

The trend was based on the wardrobe and aesthetic of a slew of middle-aged rom-coms. Diane Keaton in Something’s Gotta Give is the perfect embodiment of the stereotype; a laid-back female protagonist who spends her time by the beach donning a series of neutral colour palettes and stylish accessories.

Think cashmere sweaters, oversized straw hats, home-cooked dinners and holiday homes in the Hamptons. Comfort is key but aesthetic is a priority.

Apart from blowing up on Tik Tok, the trend is celebrity-approved. Actress Anne Hathaway was quick to jump on the trend with an Instagram post of her in cream pants, a white button-up and a straw hat.

And if you feel that the coastal grandmother chic is calling you, we’ve compiled some of the must-haves, that doesn’t include a house by the Hamptons.

1. Gentle Herd Matching Cashmere Set

The first step is to make sure your outfit is chic, but also perfect for lounging around at home. Coastal grandmothers spend their time cooking dinners at home or reading in matching cashmere sets, with neutral colours.
