Grandma Chic with Fossil Q

Grandma Chic with Fossil Q

  fossil Q

  Now that the weather is heading towards frigid, it’s getting a bit harder to dress sexy. The large comfy sweaters have come out, along with the slouchy jeans and huge jackets. To be honest, I’ve been reveling in dressing like a grandma because (1) I’m warm and (2) I’m comfortable.

This lace up sweater became super popular last year, thanks to Isabel Marant, and now you can find a version of it in basically any online retailer. I found my version at Zara, but you can find it almost anywhere (and I’ve linked some below).

I paired it with my NEW FAVE FALL LOOK which is basically metallic pleated skirts. I am SO IN LOVE with this look. This skirt, especially, is a dream. It’s a dream to shoot (look how the light bounces off of it), a dream to wear (so light and airy) and just a dream to look at (that vibrant red!). Most of all, you can rock this with a billion tights underneath to keep warm and, for when it gets colder, pair with boots!

I call this look “Grandma Chic”, because it’s just a little bit frumpy but that color really draws your eye. And with it, I kept my accessories minimal except for my new watch from Fossil, the Fossil Q Smartwatch.

This is actually the second smartwatch I own. I had the Apple Watch but. . .I kind of hated the band on it and I wasn’t a huge fan of the square face. The square face felt so masculine and I already have a bony wrist. When I received the Fossil Q, I loved that the face was round and the band was a neutral color (not a rubberized black!) that could go with everything. It also does everything I need my smartwatch to do, which is give me the weather/texts/emails. That’s all I really need and it even has extras like a speaker/activity tracking/music control.

I’ve been wearing it almost non-stop since I got it, switching it out with my red leather Larsson & Jennings watch if I want to add in some color. I love that more companies are getting into the smartwatch game, if only so that I don’t have to drop another $600 at Apple. These watches are way more affordable, ranging at around $270. And it comes at the perfect time, because gift-giving season is coming up and now I know what to get for some of my friends!

Tell me, what watch do you own AND really. . .on a scale of 1-10, 1 being not grandma-y enough and 10 being your great great grandma Ruth, just how Grandma Chic are you?

    Nothing beats warm and comfortable. You look chic, no worries on looking like a grandma. I’d sport this look any time 🙂

  • Thomas Falkenstedt

    Haha, whoever knew grandmas look this good! 😀 To be honest I love your styling and in many cases I’m just like you. Comfort before class, which is an oxymoron as they can be combined and intertwined and played around with endlessly, but enough about that. 🙂 I actually own a leather jacket my grandpa wore when he drove his motorcycle in the 1950s and I also own one of his grandpa hats, so that’s as authentic as it gets.
    And oh, I feel exactly like you do about the iWatch or whatever they call it and that seems to be a great option 🙂

  • Imaobong Asuquo

  • I’ve actually been looking for a skirt like this for holiday parties for weeks! Love your finds. And that Fossil Q watch! I got one earlier this year in a gift bag and loved it, until my mom swiped it from me. lol
