If you are on TikTok, then there’s a good chance that you’re already familiar with the coastal grandma aesthetic. If not, let us explain.

Think: the main character in a Nancy Myers film, farmer’s markets, button-down chambray tops, a deep appreciation for fresh-cut flowers and home-cooked meals, and a love for French jazz. When dressing the part, refer to anything Meryl Streep wore in Mamma Mia, Diane Keaton’s wardrobe in Something’s Gotta Give, and Martha Stewart. (Yup, just Martha in general.) If you are ready to embrace the coastal grandma look, here are a few pieces you need in your wardrobe.
A Straw Hat
A must-have accessory for every coastal grandma is the straw hat. This will come in handy on sunny days spent harvesting vegetables and herbs in your garden. There really is no wrong way to wear a straw hat, but we love it with a white T-shirt and denim shorts or a pair of slightly oversized overalls.
Wide-Leg Linen Pants
Easy, breezy wide-leg linen pants are necessary for the coastal grandma vibe. After all, what else are you going to stroll the beach in? We love these pants paired with a button-down chambray top and either a pair of slip-on mules or sandals.
A Smock Dress
A midi-length cotton pinafore smock dress is ideal for grabbing coffee with friends or a candlelit dinner with someone special. We love this dress with a pair of slip-on mules and delicate gold earrings.
Our Pick: ASOS Collusion Organic Cotton Seersucker Midi Pinafore Sundress ($37.89, shop here)
An Oversized Cardigan
An oversized cardigan is a phenomenal layering piece that you can wear over just about anything. It can gently cocoon you when you sit on your porch, sip your coffee, and admire your hydrangeas in the early morning.
The ultimate footwear for perusing your local market are woven leather flats (sustainably made, of course). We adore these shoes with light-washed denim or linen pants or skirts. Coastal grandma attire includes classic, timeless pieces, and these flats fit the bill.
