Have you seen the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin?
It is SO good!
This ‘older woman odd couple’ has Jane Fonda (Grace) as the uptight preppy and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) as the weed-smoking hippie. The two are thrown together when their respective husbands come to terms with the fact that they are gay and in love with each other.
It’s about friendship and family and acceptance and denial – all in a plot that will have you smiling the whole way through.
One of my favourite parts of the show is seeing how the Grace and Frankie wardrobe designers have dressed Jane Fonda.
I can’t help it – I’m a closet preppy – and once you see her style, I think you’ll be one too.
I went shopping online and tried to put together some of my favourite Grace-Chic-Mom outfits. The items are as close as I could find to what Grace (Jane Fonda) wears on the show – but I won’t profess that they are the real items from the wardrobe.
- Black swallow blouse – White wool blazer – Silver Hammered Disc Earring
- Gold and Agate Cluster Necklace
I would never, ever, ever choose this bold print blouse out if I saw it in a store. I would have thought it loud and garish – but the stylist creating the Grace and Frankie wardrobe nailed it on the head by dressing it up with a white blazer and dressing it down with a pair of jeans. I would totally wear this!
- Pink long-sleeve blouse – Black velvet trousers – Michael Kors Saddle Bag – Gold & diamond necklace – Fringe shawl
Do you have a closet full of white blouses?
I have a few and I never wear them because I’m a SAHM and the thought of ironing a blouse after just having worn it around the house kills me.
The above blouse is a soft pink and styled with jeans or a black velvet pant and left untucked (collars up preppy girls) is just beautiful. Classic, simple and perfect for every day – worth the ironing I’d say.
- Cotton Cami – Chanel black purse – Lagerfeld fringed tweed blazer – Anne Klein Dress Pump –Sterling Silver Disc Earrings – Silver and quartz necklace
Look at this image – would you guess that Jane Fonda is 79? Her character, Grace, is 73 I think, but the style says 40 to me. Straight-leg jeans with a white cami, topped with a fringed blazer and sling-back pumps says fashionable, understated and confident. I want this Grace and Frankie wardrobe!
- Prima cord pants – Michael Kors Top-Zip Tote – Long sleeve t-shirt – Circle shawl – Steve Madden Tala Ankle Bootie – 2-stone drop earrings – bracelet (sold out)
If you’re looking for a series to binge-watch and smile over – you really should head over to Netflix and scarf down the three seasons of Grace and Frankie. All of the cast are dressed impeccably and maybe another character’s wardrobe will speak to you.
Have a great one!
