Grandpa Sweaters

Grandpa sweaters, grandma sweaters, ugly sweaters, chunky sweaters- Whatever you call it, I'm obsessed. The name might turn you away at first, who wants to look like their grandpa right? When I think "grandpa sweater" I immediately think either-

Bill Cosby

Or Mr. Rodgers

These iconic 80's television figures were really on to something. Not only are "grandpa" sweaters incredibly comfy and warm, but they look amazing paired with a skirt or skinny jeans and any type of boot. The best part is that you can find some great sweaters by just taking a trip to your local thrift store!

Katie does "grandpa chic" perfectly.
The 80's (and 90's for that matter) are making a comeback and the grandpa sweater might just be my favorite part of this revival! I was searching for the perfect version of this retro sweater when I came upon this beauty during a recent trip to Forever 21:

I could not be happier I found this sweater! It also comes in navy and mustard but I couldn't resist this great cream color. I wore it with a plain tee, jeans and boots for a comfy look but I can't wait to incorporate it into more outfits! Such a great staple for fall and winter.

Do y'all like the look of grandpa sweaters? Or are they outdated? Can't wait to hear what y'all think!
