My Love Affair with Grandpa Sweaters

Let me tell you, grandpa sweaters are not only for old men. No sir. They're  mostly for girls in their twenties that might want to give off the vibe that they're a super hip Bill Crosby type of person.  Layer it over a skirt (bonus points if it's a fancy skirt!) and toss a jean vest over it, and you magically look not-seventy.

Anyone else rock these sweaters? Share posts here if you have them- I'd love to get more inspiration!

Sweater- thrifted
Skirt- thrifted
Boots- Topshop

  4. Would never be brave enough to wear this type of jumper, but certainly have pulled it off! I like the way you have styled your hair also!

  16. That sweater is INCREDIBLE. This whole look is. I have a very similar black maxi skirt and i wear it almost weekly. Such a solid staple.
