STYLE QUICKIE: How to Steal From Your Grandmother’s Closet


By Joyce Chua from THREAD SG

Conservative is the new chic.

If you thought you had nothing in common with Grandma in terms of style, you might be shutting the doors on a treasure trove of sartorial wonders too soon.

Granny-chic isn’t new to us, of course, but now it’s getting a glam update. From pearls to faux fur to red lips and cat-eye sunglasses, this time we’re going all out in raiding Grandma’s closet.

If you haven’t already, then it’s time to start bonding with Grandma over fashion. Here are some looks you can steal from her:

Boxy Outerwear


Oversized sweaters, knit cardigans, or body checkered coats lend a granny vibe. Balance out that volume with something streamlined like boots for a contemporary vibe.




Top off your outfit with une jolie chapeau for a dear-old-dame look.


Pearls and Scarves


Pile on the vintage accessories. Scarves and pearls are darling together, and they let you add some detail to your outfit.


Shoes With Socks


Bring some old-fashioned charm to your look and keep your feet toasty.


Anything Retro


A quirky print, cat-eye sunnies, red lips. Grandma was once young and hip too.
