‘Grace and Frankie’ Has Inspired a Fashion Movement Among Twenty-Somethings

With three seasons under its belt and season 4 on the way, it’s fair to say that Netflix show Grace and Frankie is a hit! Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda are totally adorable, not to mention that the script is hilarious.

But what nobody expected — including us — is that the show would kick off a bit of a fashion revolution! According to Grace and Frankie’s costumer, young women are totally fawning over the stars’ wardrobes and are even starting to emulate them. She told The Cut,

“I feel like it’s in the Zeitgeist to look toward older women for style. We went through a whole rote time in fashion, especially in Los Angeles. When everybody’s wearing what everybody else is wearing. I feel like people are fatigued from that. Older style icons have cultivated their own uniqueness and expression and personality and confidence, and younger women look to that — they’re taking notes on it.”

She credits women like Iris Apfel as other icons in the movement.

And it’s not just the fans who are starting to catch on to the style — apparently, the stars are digging it as well. Lily Tomlin, who plays Frankie, couldn’t be more different than her character but after getting used to her new wardrobe said,

“Why don’t I dress like this?”

LOL! We would totally endorse that.
