10 Fashion Trends That Grandmas Rocked First

Many of today's hottest trends were worn almost exclusively by grandmas only a decade ago. Granted, they weren't grandmothers at that time. We think they deserve some credit for being ahead of the game. But, as always, fashion trends come and go. If you wait long enough, things will come back into style. Here are 10 fashion trends that are making a comeback as the "grandma chic" fad takes off!

1. Cardigans

Grandma's comfy cardigan looked adorably oversized on you when you were 3! Now that you're older, you can rock that cardigan with chic style. Throw a maxi cardigan over a sundress for a put-together look, or use a floral kimono-style cardigan as a beach coverup.

Michelle Obama is almost single-handedly responsible for bringing this "grandma style" (at least at one time) into the mainstream. She was famous for her toned arms as First Lady and often wore sleeveless dresses, but she often paired them with cardigans for a more conservative styling look. They weren't your run-of-the-mill cardigans, though. She tried on bold prints and colors and even cinched them at her waist to show off her svelte figure.
