It’s time to retire to the seaside and embrace your inner “Coastal Grandmother” or grandfather in 2022.
This trend isn’t new, as linen and laid-back vibes are synonymous with spring and summer, and have been around for decades. The funny thing is, “Coastal Grandmother” has been popping up all over TikTok and now flowing into fashion trends everywhere.
As explained in the TikTok below (that now has over 451,000 likes and counting) “Coastal Grandmother” really applies to any age, so long as you love the calming vibes of celebrities like Ina Garten and Nancy Meyers movies.
While “Coastal Grandmother” can also apply to home decor and other aspects of a chill, elderly lifestyle, the fashion is one of the best parts.
Loose, flowing linen is a staple, with linen shirts becoming a must-have for men and women, regardless of age or coastal-local.
