Hey bestie, it’s your Internet BFF, Kaylannk here! Let’s talk coastal granddaughter aesthetic.

Picture it: linen pants billowing in the salty breeze, frolicking on the beach, sun-kissed skin, reading your favorite book under a beach umbrella with a cold ice sweet tea. It’s a vibe that whispers effortless elegance. But what if you’re not quite grandma-aged, but still dreaming of this for your summer break? Coastal granddaughter has entered the chat: a youthful take on the classic aesthetic, perfect for anyone who craves a touch of coastal lifestyle in their everyday life.


Coastal Granddaughter Aesthetic

The coastal granddaughter aesthetic is derived from the coastal grandmother aesthetic. The difference between the two aesthetics is the coastal granddaughter aesthetic is a fun, youthful approach to the coastal grandmother aesthetic. The coastal granddaughter aesthetic emulates a 20-something year old, who lives a relaxed life filled with leisure and happens to live near a coastline. The coastal grandmother aesthetic emulates a mature woman, who has a structured lifestyle, but is currently on vacation.

How To Be A Coastal Granddaughter?

1. Coastal Granddaughter Hairstyle

The coastal granddaughter hairstyle is effortless curls or beach waves. To achieve this look, I recommend you do a braid out.

2. Coastal Granddaughter Outfit

A ‘coastal granddaughter’ outfit looks airy and funky. Commonly people dressing in this aesthetic play with patterns and wear oversized garments. A coastal granddaughter would wear a Hanes crewneck, Bermuda shorts, and an Urban Outfitters pattern bucket hat. Or a floral maxi dress and a beige cardigan

A coastal granddaughter spends her day out in the Sun. She takes pictures on the beach. She rides her bicycle on the boardwalk. She parties on her boyfriends’ father’s boat. When she is indoors, she reads romantic novels and journal her goals.

If you would like to try out this trend, you can look to Gilmore Girls and The Summer I Turned Pretty for inspiration in fashion and lifestyle to truly embrace this aesthetic.
