TikTok is famous for birthing style aesthetics — or simply giving them a name. The so-called “coastal grandmother” style is nothing new, but this summer, the trend is a favorite amongst all ages. According to TikToker @lexinicola, it’s a term she coined back in March to describe people who like “Nancy Myers movies, coastal vibes, recipes and cooking, Ina Garten, cozy interiors and more.” Of course, you don’t need to be an actual grandmother to love the style, though.

In fashion form, the coastal grandmother is neutrals, navy stripes, breezy cotton, linens, soft cashmere and silk. It’s pretty much anything you’d see Diane Keaton wear in the 2003 hit romantic comedy Something’s Gotta Give.

If you just realized you’re a coastal grandmother or want to try the style out for yourself, take a look below at 11 picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale runs now through July 31, but just a heads up, things are selling out fast.
