Time to raid grandma’s closet! All her clothes are back in style. This week we show you how to slay in the granny chic look.

Literally anything that someone’s grandma would wear is now in style!

The oversized knit, the tweed clothes, the super comfy shoes, who knew that grandma was a style icon? ‘Granny chic’ is a cute new trend that we are loving. Try this trend with these key pieces from MRP.

The new classics

A key element to granny chic are comfy heels paired with socks. This look has actually been around for years: all you need is a great dress or skirt to finish off your outfit.

Go for longer length, modest dresses in typical grandma florals. Clashing colours and prints are must for this trend to work.
