“I have been ready for #coastalgrandmother chic since before TikTok was born. May this moment never end,” she captioned the photo.

In case you missed it, the term was coined by TikToker Lex Nicoleta who, in a video that now has over 2.2 million views, explained that it refers to someone who loves “Nancy Meyer movies, coastal vibes, recipes and cooking, Ina Garten, cozy interiors, and more.” And nope, you don’t have to be a grandma to embrace the trend. 

When it comes to dressing coastal gran-style, think about mixing and matching neutral colors, as Hathaway demonstrated. You’ll need a lineup full of button-down shirts, linen pants, chunky knits, and wide-brimmed hats. The best part about coastal grandma is that the clothing is actually functional beyond the fad — you can wear pieces together to channel the trend or wear them separately with pretty much anything else in your closet. 

Selena Gomez is another celebrity who was recently seen exuding coastal grandma vibes. The Rare Beauty founder went for the cozy route of the aesthetic when she posed for a photo in an oversized knit cardigan from Free People. We have a feeling more stars will put their own spin on coastal grandma chic soon enough. 

Hathaway hopes the trend will never end, and we certainly don’t think it’s going away anytime soon. Scroll down to put together your own coastal grandma chic ensemble inspired by Hathaway.
