The Bizarre ‘Grandma’ Top Trend Is Going To Be EVERYWHERE This Fall

October 10, 2018 by Jessica Harrington

It’s fairly common in the fashion world for a trend that was once considered “ugly” to come back as super popular sometime later. We saw it with overalls, platform sneakers, loafers, and now, turtlenecks.

Once reserved for the elderly and thought to be a grandma top, you can now spot long-sleeve turtleneck sweaters everywhere–and on women of all ages!

The basic fall top seems to have become a street style staple. And while your grandma may still rock one of these on the regular, we’re seeing turtlenecks styled in a whole new way by fashion-forward influencers, celebrities, editors.

The modest top makes for the perfect base layer to experiment with. Wear it tucked into a pair of jeans, under an oversized blazer, or use the long-sleeve top to transition some of your warm weather dresses into fall. The possibilities are endless!
