The older, the wiser. Inspired by the grandma style of dressing gowns and florals, GRAZIA Singapore’s Fashion Editor Gregory Woo reinvents the trending style with a more modern twist, guaranteed to make a firm fashion statement wherever you go.
Look 1: Gown town
Never thought we’d put “grandma” and “negligee” in the same sentence, but worn on top of a utilitarian jacket, the dressing gown makes its unexpected return as a trending style, used as a layering piece to add textural relief without the bulk.
Look 2: Pretty tough
The freshest way to wear florals this season is with a rebellious contrarian attitude. Here, a summery skirt looks cool when grounded with a chunky belt—and not much else.

Look 3: Mention the unmentionables
The trick to re-contextualising delicate underpinnings is all in the way the pieces are layered. Slip a cut-off tank under a bra top and tuck the bottoms in a dressier skirt for a totally mixed-up concoction that feels pretty without the twee.
Look 4: Toe the line
When wearing a novelty sandal, keep the rest of the outfit subdued, but experiment with adding one other statement-making item to make a bigger declaration of style.
Look 5: Tweed out
Turn the collarless tweed jacket into a cool-girl staple by treating it like a piece of outerwear that needs no occasion. Our tip: wear it with everything but its matching skirt.
