There’s no denying it: Trends beloved by the geriatric set have thoroughly penetrated the fashion world. Our senior editor recently shared seven (count ’em) current trends that are grandma-approved. I’d like to add one more to the list: the grandma sweater. There are a few variations on the look, but the most popular is a very sweet knit with floral embroidery and appliqués. I found substantial evidence below, and trend-conscious retailers like Zara (which is having an epic sale right now, by the way) have already given their stamp of approval to the style. Other notable grandma sweater details are pointelle (breezy for summer) and appliqué bobbles (fun to play with year-round), both of which are gaining steam in the sartorial world. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out my visual buffet of grandma-sweater inspiration below, and shop one for yourself now because the trend is selling fast.
As you will come to see, the matching set is a common denominator of most of these looks.
Why not let the color of your grandma sweater dictate your entire look?
Now this is how to do knits in the summertime.
We're getting Scandinavian vibes from this sweet knit.
A puff sleeve adds to the sweetness of this cropped number.
Always here for a bobble.
