We get Granny!
It's been a bit of a talking point this season. Why? Well, Katy Perry made an attempt at it last week wearing Stella McCartney, and we haven't decided if she triumphed or not. So what is it?
We are naming it Granny Chic, thanks to its nod to our dear nana's wardrobe. Full of tea dresses, florals, sensible shoes and adorned with many an accessory, it's the latest fashion fad. If you fancy having a go at copying the grannies of the world, then take a look at our top three high street looks.
Do you think it's stylish or just oh so no no?
We can't do Granny Chic without some florals. The midi skirt is here to stay and when you combine these two trends, then you have a lovely option for a summer wedding or occasion.
Add in some vintage inspired jewellery to complement the look too. Costume jewellery is a huge part of this trend!
We can mix in a trend or two here with these pieces from New Look, who are definitely on top of the pile when it comes to Granny Chic. Showing your shoulders will be the thing of the summer, so I'm taking to the gym to start the preparation.
Accessorise a tea dress with a round bag (my nana had loads of these) and try a colour like pink or lemon. When the weather gets a bit warmer try a strappy flat sandal. I can see this all working for dinner on a lovely sunny evening.
If dresses aren't your thing, you can go for separates. Think midi pleated skirts and frilled tops with a Little House on the Prairie aesthetic. You can wear these with an open toe sandal, or try with a ballerina flat for comfort. The colours need to stay nice and muted, or even dusky. But throw in the odd metallic to add a contemporary detail.
Metallic skirt, top and floral maxi all from the ASOS Spring Summer 2016 collection.
