This fall and winter season, it’s clear that the grunge era did not end in the 90s as everyone assumed. No, in fact there is a revival of plaid and skater skirts everywhere.
The grunge style can be looked at as a way of wrestling with one self and not committing. You know what you want to say and you know that you are an individual with a voice but you just can’t commit to what your statement will be. So one throws on a beanie, a skater skirt, baggie jeans, and oversized sweater and steps out into the big world.
Grunge was created by musicians who reigned in the 90s, most notably Nirvana. Over the years there has been a hole in the fashion atmosphere. One that can not possibly be filled with any other trend then grunge. It has all of the qualities that one seeks when creating an outfit. There is comfort because there isn’t anything too tight.
In fact most grunge inspired pieces are baggy or very loose fitting. And, there is also a rebellious streak that comes with the grunge approach. Together these qualities create the perfect recipe for achieving the grunge look.
To create a grunge look, pick an item that you would want as a centerpiece for your outfit, such as a plaid top. Try this one from Swell for $27.99.
The black and white checkered print makes this top very versatile. It’s best paired with a black tulle skirt for a glamorous look or skinny denim for a casual approach. Add some combat or rugged sole boots to complete the look. Try this pair from Make Me Chic for $41.67.
Step out from the pack and be a sponge for grunge. Soak up all that this trend has to offer. The versatility and rebelliousness this movement brings can only leave it to be desired for seasons to come.
