I have such a strong opinion about. Coastal grandmother style, just the name alone. And it’s a trend! Unbelieveable. The trendsetters must be very demotivated. Last Monday we as a Stylish Monday group also had this theme and then we called it Coastal Chic, because the opinions about coastal grandmother style were divided. At first I wanted to put on a black outfit for the series, rebellious and unconventional. But I thought I should at least do my best, as so did my fashion friends.
What my opinion is about coastal grandmother style!
And when we started photographing this outfit I thought, I’m going to write a post about the coastal grandmother style. Not because I actually like the style, but because I dislike it so much! Let me make it very clear that what I write is my opinion and that I am absolutely not saying that anything is so. I appreciate every ones opinion. And as you could see, my fashion friends look great in this trend.
But who invented this trend anyway. And to give it such a terribly unattractive name. As if women of a certain age are grandmothers anyway. To assume that every woman will have children! That’s what hates me so much about this trend, somehow I loathe it.
And it’s also a very boring trend
But it’s not just the name. Let’s take a look at what a coastal grandmother supposily wears. I would have liked it much more if this trend had been with, for example, a flower dress and a straw hat. But this! Under the coastal grandmother style is meant, neutrals, relaxed, doing what you like, that kind of nonsense. Like you only do that when you’re older. But let’s stick to the style. As I interpreted it anyway.
What’s nice about this outfit? Can it be more boring than jeans? Most of you know how I feel about jeans. But it get’s even more boring! The t-shirt is of course striped to get a bit of a coastal feel, fine t-shirt, when worne on a floral skirt for example, but very boring when I wear it with jeans. Then another item that everyone raves about but that doesn’t make me wild: the white blouse!
Ban the coastal grandmother style!
How often do you read that the white blouse is the must-have item in your closet! And yes, as you can see I fell for it once. So boring! If you want to wear a white blouse, then at least buy one with great puff sleeves or super nice cuffs or something like that. But an ordinary white blouse? What’s there to like?
I wear shell bracelets and some turquoise accessories to spice it up a bit. I really like the sliders. But all in all, this look makes me feel like I’m part of an incontinence product commercial on the Dutch telly anyway. Or that the only thing I do is to drink my cup of tea and work a bit in my garden.
Incredibly boring and not at all representative of what a grandmother looks like these days! Or an older woman, which even sounds so retarded at all. What is an older woman? It’s just a woman! What does age matter again? Only on Tinder does that matter! And from what I know about that, that’s also completely out of reality. I hope this trend will go away soon because it really annoys me.
