4 Grandma Trends I'm Stealing From The Golden Girls

Erin Fitzpatrick

It's arguably the most important question you could ever ask someone: Are you a Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, or Sophia? I've already waxed poetic about the style of TV icons like Hilary Banks and Rachel Green, but The Golden Girls more than deserve a callout as well. Played by Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty, the lovable roommates aren't only memorable because of their quick wit—their style was incredibly spot-on as well. 

If you're an avid Who What Wear reader, you know that we've mentioned the resurgence of "grandma" trends quite a bit. We're talking structured handbags, pearl jewelry, and faux-fur coats. Given the trend's popularity, why not take inspiration from the funniest, chicest, and most charming grandmas in TV history? Scroll down to shop four trends inspired by The Golden Girls that will be right at home in 2020. 

Cardigans With Collared Dresses

The cult show is a treasure trove of styling ideas. One of my favorites: wearing cardigans with the collar of your dress peeking out. 

Madewell Mia Bobble Cardigan ($148)

H&M Cardigan ($80)

Michael Michael Kors Chenille Cardigan ($135)

Chunky Gold Earrings

The Golden Girls loved their jewelry—preferably in gold, and the chunkier the better. Blanche and Dorothy's earrings below are so on-trend right now. 

Shashi Axel Earrings ($58)

Laura Lombardi Fiore Gold-Tone Earrings ($110)

Jules Smith Roped Up Double Hoops ($48)

Long Nightgowns and Robes

'Tis the season to say inside and keep cozy, and there's nothing comfier than a long nightgown and robe. The girls were big fans of the sleepwear staples and they looked mighty chic in their pastel colors.
