First it was mom jeans then dad hats and now the Grandpa Sweater is the hot ticket for Fall 2018.
Don’t let the name confuse you though, this Mr. Rogers-esc seasonal knitty fashion favorite isn’t just for Gramps or the back of your office chair. Think uber chic runway-ready oversized cardigan with a vintage vibe.
Shown on the runways from Gucci to Missoni, this trend is not only comfy but also creates an effortlessly layered look. Throw this piece on over everything from a graphic tee to a cocktail dress. Yes a cocktail dress! Use it as a layering piece under a statement coat or as a focal point of your look as a topper. It’s a no-fail way to stay warm and trendy this season.
The best thing about this versatile trend is that any girl with any style can wear it, from boho chic to edgy rocker and even frilly and feminine. It’s a trend for everyone to try.
Look for cardigans with personality. Vintage pieces with interesting patterns like patchwork, graphics and checkerboard in warm colors such as auburn, tawny brown or rustic orange and fashion forward details like bold buttons and bling.
