Going Grunge


As a 90's grunge fan, it was only a matter of time before I turned the genre into a form of fashion inspiration. I'm a believer of music being a huge factor in the way we dress. For this post I could of easily gone for the cliché Nirvana tribute t-shirt, but I decided to go back to it's roots.


For this outfit the first thing I did was search for a plaid shirt and a pair of Dm's. I have yet to show off my red pair of Dr Martens so I thought it was about time. The plaid shirt I chose compliments them perfectly. I wrapped it around my waist to keep the outfit looking more laidback. To keep the red element flowing I added a chunky red knitted beanie which also acted as a bad hair day distraction. Win win.


As we all know, denim was a huge part o the 90's so of course, I opted for my favourite denim jacket. Underneath I thought a simple black crop top would suffice, I don't know if you noticed but they were seen almost everywhere in the 90's from Winona Ryder to Courtney Love.


It wouldn't be the 90's if I wasn't wearing double denim so being true to the era I wore some high-waisted black denim shorts. High-waisted jeans/shorts are definitely coming back with a vengeance, seemingly bringing all of the 90's fashion with it. Jewellery wise I wore a variety of layered necklaces starting with a tattoo choker (notably 90's) and two simplistic pendants to add a touch of silver.


Finally, with regards to my hair I literally did absolutely nothing with it - that's the beauty of grunge. Give it a go yourselves. Why take hours to get ready when in the world of grunge all you need to do is roll out of bed?
