How you can get Baddie Winkle's famous 'Tumblr-teen' look

Baddie Winkle is a rising star of Instagram and the fashion world. Proving there’s no such thing as being too old for the internet, Winkle made Tech Insider’s recent list of the best people on the internet in 2015. She’s an 87-year-old grandmother, but her fashion sense matches more closely with an edgy teenager.

After gaining a cult-following on Instagram, Winkle has now landed modelling jobs and walked several red carpets, and Refinery29 called Winkle’s unique style “Tumblr-teen.”

But what exactly does that mean?

Scroll down to take a look at some of Winkle’s outfits and see how you too can be inspired by teen fashion. 

Winkle's style started with simple tie-dye shirts and patterned socks.

Winkle wears lots of shirts with text (usually about Drake). This halter-top and choker necklace combo is very 90s.

To truly emulate Baddy Winkle, it will take more than bright colours and spunky outfits. As she puts it, 'You're only here once in your lifetime, so have fun.'
