Take it from me: The granny jacket is spring’s best investment piece—and that’s whether you want to spend $50 or $500. What exactly is a granny jacket, you ask? Think a boxy iteration of outerwear that buttons up, is often (but not always) collarless, typically in a tweed or boucle style fabric, and basically looks like something Emily Gilmore would wear. If you don’t know who that is, stop reading this immediately and start streaming Gilmore Girls on Netflix right now.
Anyway, back to the jackets. Whether it’s on the streets, in stores, online, or on my Instagram feed, the style has been everywhere I look, and thanks to its sleekness and versatility, I’ve concluded that it’s a must for the season ahead. Since I had to do the research for myself anyway, below I'm sharing my favorite granny jackets at every price point along with a healthy dose of outfit inspiration to guide you in the right styling direction. Happy shopping, friends.
