Grandpa Sweaters Don’t Have To Be Ugly—And These Are Proof

I am a big, big proponent of shopping in your male family members’ closets. And by shopping in, I mean stealing from. Just yesterday I took a houndstooth blazer from my Dad’s wardrobe that I swear looked straight out of Zara’s New Arrivals! Whether or not you have a fashion-savvy family member’s closet on standby, grandpa sweaters are all the rage this fall, according to Gen Z. And if you need to buy yours new and pretend they’re borrowed, you won’t get any judgement from me.

And when I say ~grandpa sweater~, please know I don’t mean something frumpy or ugly. Grandpa sweaters tend to be timeless, oversized and chunky. But fun, too! Brands like Rowing Blazers have taken the grandfatherly staple and put a fresh twist on classic knits that makes them streetwear-ready. And if you need even more stylish sweater inspo, might I remind you of Harry Styles’s fall/winter 2020 wardrobe? The man didn’t leave the house without some statement knitwear!

This season, swap fitted cardis and knit bralettes for something chunky, cozy and equally chic. Below, the top grandpa sweaters too cool for even your most stylish relative’s closet, worth buying all on your own.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

I’m A Luxury Sweater

When Gen Z discovered Rowing Blazers, grandpa sweaters got their time in the spotlight. Princess Diana wore a similar sweater to this Gyles & George pick, so in my eyes, it’s worth every penny.

When selecting a chunky knit, don’t be afraid to go bold in hue! I predict this will be Zara’s new top seller.
