These 3 Grandma Trends Just Got Bumped Way Up (Thanks, Kaia Gerber)

Grandma dressing has been on the rise for a while now, and as we recently pointed out, there are a few specific trends that fall into this larger style aesthetic. Some items are poised to be more popular than others for the season ahead, and as we inch closer and closer to fall, fashion girls and celebs such as J.Lo and Kaia Gerber are nailing down these popular retro fashion items as big fall trends.

Case in point: We recently spotted Kaia Gerber wearing three big grandma trends—retro sunglasses, a vacation shirt, and croc-effect slingback heels—while out and about in NYC on her birthday. She styled them to suit her signature effortless vibe by pairing a green silk bowling shirt with vintage jeans and sleek slingbacks. We have a feeling that her cool outfit choice is about to inspire a lot of fashion girls to prioritize these three retro items over all the others.
