As we enter a new year, we’re looking ahead to 2024 trends. As many prefer thrifting over fast fashion and embrace personal style over rapidly changing trend cycles, 2024 has been declared the year of the “Eclectic Grandpa.” According to Pinterest Predicts, “In 2024, Gen Z and Boomers will embrace grandpacore and bring eccentric and expressive elements for the ages to their wardrobes. Think retro streetwear, chic cardigans and customized clothing.”
We are loving the eclectic grandpa aesthetic for the home as well. The key elements of an Eclectic Grandpa home are well-traveled, layered, quality pieces that stand the test of time. Whether an item has been passed down through generations or is a recent thrift store find, these are well-made pieces that hold up. Think of the pieces you would find in your grandfather’s study– what stories would he tell about these keepsakes?
Embrace bold, dark hues in the bathroom. Think dark green, mustard yellow and black towels made from 100% cotton– colors inspired by your grandfather’s vintage sweaters. Dark marble accessories bring a sophisticated, moody vibe to any bath or study.
Eclectic grandpa is not so much a trend as it is a lifestyle. You don’t have to completely refresh your entire wardrobe and home but rather look at what you have and consider how well your pieces will hold up. When purchasing new items, are they made from high quality materials? Consider marble from Greece, Alpaca sourced in Peru, handwoven fique made in Colombia. These artisan-made collections are built to last.
Much like dark green hunting jackets or bankers’ lamps, the Esmeralda Marble Bath Accessories feel like classic heirlooms passed down from your grandfather.
By blending vintage elements with a modern twist, individuals can curate a look that is uniquely theirs. The Eclectic Grandpa trend stands as a vibrant testament to the enduring power of personal style and the beauty of embracing one’s eccentricities.
As always, we look to the films of Nora Ephron and Nancy Meyers for timeless style inspo. A well-made knit sweater, much like our Lima Alpaca Throw Pillows, will always be in style.
