Stand out from the crowd with ZOO Fashions' unique take on grandpacore! Discover clothing & accessories inspired by iconic brands like Kenzo, Amiri, Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Christian Louboutin, but reimagined with a modern twist.

The GRANDPA CORE Fashion Trend


Forget dusty attics and mothball-scented sweaters, because grandpa is officially chic! Step aside coastal grandmother, because 2024 belongs to the….. (drumroll please)... Grandpa Core fashion movement!

It’s all about embracing the retro style in 2024! Mix N Match with going big on layering. This comfort driven Grandpa trend has recently taken off The GRANDPA CORE Fashion trend.


With this trending topic on social media, it’s time to raid Grandpa’s closet (with his permission, of course!)

Remember those comfy cardigans, classic tweed blazers, and chunky sneakers Grandpa rocks with effortless style? Turns out, he was a trendsetter all along! Think cosy knits, vintage loafers, and slouchy denim - basically, anything you could picture the coolest grandpa wearing!


#Eclecticgrandpa has been quoted by Pinterest as a 2024 trend prediction which has created a debate online. Searches for “customized denim jackets” have seen a growth of 355%. Tiktok has also become grandpa-fied with #grandpacore boasting 16.5 million views and #grandpastyle clocking in at 4.2 million.

The message is very clear: put away the skinny jeans and embrace the comfy and stylish grandpa vibes in 2024! Remember, this trend isn’t just for grandsons! Grandpa core is delightfully gender neutral, welcoming anyone who wants to channel their inner-fashion senior citizen.

Now, let’s talk specifics. Imagine yourself strolling down the street in a Balenciaga Houndstooth Blazer paired with Kenzo Blue Asagao Japanese Denim Jeans (think relaxed fit just how grandpa would like it), topped with a Kenzo by Verdy Jacquard Shirt - an eye-catching overshirt bursting with logo love. To top it up further and beat the chill, wrap yourself in a Givenchy Stripe Logo Sweater, the epitome of understated luxury.
