I always loved granny’s things! Hence pearls, chunky heels, loose dresses in dark colors, floral and polka dots, brooches, and any vintage-feeling pieces, always had a special place in my heart. Today I am sharing with you my most recent granny chic look, that I wore in Rome.
How to nail the granny chic style
So if you want to adopt that style and don’t know where to start from, then your grandma’s or mom’s closet is a great place to do so! My golden tip for this look is easy to remember: Something old & something new. And in my outfit here, there was also something blue. First, you must choose your “something old” piece, and build your outfit around it. Having said that, this piece doesn’t have to be actually old, just to exude that vintage, granny chic vibe.
Afterwards, style this item with “something new”, something modern, for more contrast. For example, I wore this old-like dress with these ballerina shoes which are new and super cool. However they also exude that granny chic vibe too as with this fur lining, they remind of those home moccasins your grandma used to buy from the local drugstore! Finally, I finished my look by adding this color-block bag with this super fun strap, and voila!
Note: You can also go for a full granny chic look too but you really have to own it!
Granny chic essentials for those who dare:
- Chunky heels
- Granny sweaters

Remember, owning it is key. Do it for your grandma.
