The irony? This is my Grandma’s sweater.
In some ways I may have been wanting to prove that great things last. I love wearing pieces of my Grandma, she was such an influence on me, and wearing her things makes me feel close to her still, even though she’s passed on. Though, I have to admit, this is not the way she wore this sweater.
(In other news, wearing our cardigans backwards is a thing we’re doing this year. I promise. And as you can see, it’s chic. But if you need another voice on that, you can check out The Cut.)
This sweater is perfect for wearing backwards, with the ties. Add jeans and classic mules?
Not your grandma’s sweater, or your grandma’s sweater, make the perfect fall outfit.
I’m a fan of “uniform” outfits that are anything but uniform. Call it with a twist, call it making things my own, but things like my Grandma’s Sweater? I love to make them look like they are not my Grandma’s sweater. It’s not that I go out of my way to make things feel “out there”, but I want things to look like me. And why can’t I be both classic and out there?
This look is one that I hope feels fresh, but comfortable for the season. It’s easy to put together with things you most likely have in your own closet; but I’ve also linked similar items for your shopping pleasure!
Wear your Grandma’s sweater. Or not!
