The Style Stop team, on the prowl in Northampton, took one look at Hampshire College student Sarah Jane Young’s ensemble and fell in love with what she calls her “Grandma Style.”

THE SCARF: I love this knitted scarf. There are so many different ways to wear it but I like to put it around my head because it feels like the whole world is hugging me.

GRANDMA STYLE: My friends and I were trying to figure out what my style is and we decided that I kind of dress like a young grandma. I wear what feels good and normally that is a lot of floral prints, earth tones (olive green is my favorite) and tons of lipstick. This is a lot fancier than I normally dress.

THE BAG: This little black Esprit bag was actually my grandma’s. It’s great because it is big enough to hold just what you need and nothing more. It is perfect for traveling, and has accompanied me to many places. I also really like my grandmother, we are great friends, and the bag reminds me of her.

BOOTS: I am very thankful for my boots. They are ’70s vintage boots with a stitched design on the top. I love them because they are comfortable, have a nice warm lining, and were well-worn by their previous owner.

SHOPPING: I do a lot of my shopping at Goodwill and flea markets. I prefer to buy vintage and from thrift stores because I do not like new clothing, generally. I like to think of all the stories that my clothes have been a part of before coming to me and where they will go after I give them away.

DESIGNING: I have a sewing machine at home. I do a lot of alterations on the clothes I find at Goodwill to either make them more stylish or just make them fit. I tend to give these altered clothes to my friends as gifts.
