Unlikely Icons; Granny Chic

I was looking at old photographs today (as you do) and came across my old 'myspace', I wrote how "I probably dress like your nan" when I was fifteen, this got me thinking. I'm always lending my nan's clothes and think some granny's dress amazing.. This made me think of a few outfits I'd wear myself but also what the 'older woman' could feel happy wearing..   
floral cardigan - most nan's love a patterned cardi
midi skirts - nan's usually have a ankles only rule, I'd be worried if I saw them in mini skirts
cape - I loved this cape coat and the colour to, I could see a granny in it for sure
brogues - because it's a obvious choice for flats, no heels here
bag - a cute crotchet bag 
glasses - cat eye glasses to relive their youth of course

I think this is more 'glam 20 year old nan'
hat - to pop on during bad hair days
satchel - because they just keep coming back into fashion, reminder of school
socks - maybe another school reminder, or swap for black tights
dress - tartan, all nan's could pull off tartan& a cute nan friendly peter pan collar
sandals - sandals and socks done well
trousers | patterned pants are the best& I think nan's would look just a good in them
faux fur coat | pat butcher would be proud, maybe even add a bit of leopard print
t-shirt | all nan's love a plain tee
shoes | pastels colours would look cute with cute granny hair
glasses | vintage glasses.. what more can I say?
