The Chill Outfit: A Puffer Coat + Trousers + Sneakers + Beanie
Comfy clothes are always a mood we're here for, but with a stylish element, of course. New Balance sneakers? We love them. Sweatpants and hoodies? Huge fans. Cardigans and sweater sets? Always. Trousers with "dad" or "grandpa" vibes? Yep! Ever since "mom" and "dad" fashion came onto the scene, we haven't been able to get enough. Couple that with the new normal of social distancing, and you can pretty much assume we're always down for a chill outfit, thus needing all the inspiration we can get. Enter: the @gramparents Instagram account. Aka, a treasure trove of low-key fashions from sweatshirt-and-jeans combos to '90s-style dresses paired with tube socks and sneakers. The style! The comfort! The unintentional genius!
One look at this feel-good feed, and you'll quickly realise the photos featured are in no way contrived #OOTD snaps. Oh no. They're candid (and mostly oblivious) captures that depict the inadvertently stylish outfits of seniors in various cities from New York to Europe. Ranging from pragmatic "errands" outfits to polished work attire and classic "grandpa" uniforms that mostly consist of khaki trousers, New Balance sneakers, and some sort of comfort-first shirt like a sweater, button-down, or sweatshirt, these chill outfits are a total vibe and one that we're craving right now. What's more, the pièce de résistance to most of these outfits is a trendy bucket hat! Adorable! Tall socks, loafers, and baseball caps deserve an honourable mention, too.
