I’m thanking Gucci for reinventing grandpa chic. If you’ve been saving your grandfather’s knit for countryside strolls, think again. There’s an abundance of high-fashion designers and high-street retailers giving this old man-inspired style a new lease of life.
I have an undying love for anything cosy. There’s been subtle talk about snow on the horizon, so I’m screaming for extra warmth, wherever I can find it. Embrace grandad style in jacquard prints, argyle patterns and vintage wool. When you’re raiding through your old man’s snug-weather wardrobe, look for knits in extra large and tuck them into high-waisted jeans, or wear with a mini-dress for a more feminine look. You could even layer your knit with a dark-wash turtleneck.
So ditch chunky dad sneakers and light-wash mom jeans. Turn instead to coffee-hued cardigans, cable pull-overs and woolly button-downs. Here is a curated edit of seven granddad knits you can buy on the market right now. Grandpa’s everywhere, beware.
