"Coastal grandmother is in step with other millennial trends: a powerful love affair with wine, a resurgence of book clubs, an interest in “whole” foods and simple cooking." - Glamour, April 26, 2022[1]

History[]

Coastal Grandmother's aesthetics had been floating around TikTok since 2021, but only took off once user Lex Nicola coined the term in a video[2] posted on the platform on January 5, 2022 in a joke. She would expand and explain the style in another upload[3] two days later.

In April 2022, the aesthetic became widely known when mainstream news and fashion outlets, such as Glamour[4], Buzzfeed[5], Refinery29[6], The Cut[7], among other outlets started reporting on the trend in detail.
