There’s been a trend in interior design for quite some time, called Granny chic. The basic premise is a modern take on old favourites, such as wallpaper, knitting, and crochet. Granny chic has also been spilling over into the fashion world. It seems the inevitable result of hipsters pillaging vintage clothing stores.

  • tweed skirts

  • twinsets, frumpy cardigans and pearls

  • knee-length floral print tea dresses

  • old lady handbags

  • quasi-orthopedic sandals

  • mary-jane shoes

The look is very OAP (Old Age Pensioner).
Kate Nash, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Pearl Lowe (Daisy Lowe’s mom)are granny chic icons.
