Then&Now: Granny Chic

Then- Granny attire was popular in the fall of 2004 and inspired this Vogue photo shoot. Key pieces- Alberta Ferretti violet goat hair cape, pin-tucked teal chiffon shirt and herringbone pleated skirt.

Then- A coat to rival any in Granny’s closet! This white one had a mink collar and fun pom-pom buttons. Worn underneath was a silver tweed skirt with matching handbag. All from Moschino.

Then- The look and feel of a real fur coat but none of the guilt. Both it and the nubby tweed skirt were by Perry Ellis.

Now- Chic looks taken from Granny are back again for fall 2010. The focus now is on a fun mix of textures, chunky necklaces and ankle socks. Key pieces- Tory Burch jacket , Dolce & Gabbana dress,  Christian Louboutin shoes, lace Falke socks, Koture bag and Cynthia Rowley glasses.

Now- What a combination! Black/purple dress and shoes by Miu Miu, jacket (same as previous photo), bag from Louis Vuitton,  Jennifer Behr headpiece and lace socks (same as previous photo).

Now- Pile it on with a fantastic coat from Fendi and dress by Diane von Furstenberg. Don’t forget the Janis Savitt necklaces, Falke socks and Armarni bag!
