If you hadn’t heard, Coastal Grandmother is the latest fashion trend to have swept social media. The aesthetic, inspired by Diane Keaton in Something’s Gotta Give (but honestly, it’s pretty representative of the wonderful Oscar winning actress in pretty much any of her movies), is rooted in minimalism and the simplicity of living beside the sea.
Blending earthy, natural tones and crisp, clean coastal colours with loose-fitting silhouettes, Coastal Grandmothers can be seen in white linen pants, beige sweaters, white loose-fitted shirts and rattan sun hats.
As for their homes, it’s all about that all-American traditional yet clean Martha Stewart look. Lots of white, wooden accents, wicker, shells and rustic materials.
Nobody explains it better than the lady who coined the term herself, TikToker Lex Nicoleta (opens in new tab):

According to Fashion stylist Gabrielle Porcaro (opens in new tab) the trend developed after thanks to Covid-19.
“I think the urge to stay comfortable post-pandemic is what made the relaxed style so popular,” says Porcaro. “It’s the epitome of easy, chic yet comfortable.”
The chic yet comfortable nature-inspired trend doesn’t stop with fashion-conscious women though, it’s now available for your beloved pets to embrace!
Does your Chihuahua peer out of your patio doors, longing looking through the raindrops imagining themselves cavorting on the beach or vacationing in the Hamptons?
Or perhaps your Maine Coon sits on the windowsill of your seaside cottage, looking effortlessly chic? Then let them live their best life and embrace the Coastal Granny aesthetic themselves.
