The Grunge Look!

Hello Chicas,

Today's OOTD is a grunge look, a style based on the music scene around 90s which saw the beginning of rock music made popular by bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam. The main idea behind the grunge fashion is an unkempt messy look created with inexpensive clothing. This style combines elements of punk mixed with working class clothing.

 Here are a few ways on how to rock the grunge look:

  • To work out a grunge look, all you need to do is revisit your wardrobe and find out those super old worn out clothes which you have discarded. You can also pay a visit to the local thrift shops in your city or go street shopping.
  • Go for ripped, super torn denims which are actually a trend now. You can also rip your own denim for a more authentic grunge look.
  • Say yes to layering. Add an old sweater or plaid shirt over a casual tee or dress or tie it around your waist. 
  • Grunge footwear mainly includes sneakers and converse. Invest in a pair of chunky combat boots which you can pair with torn stockings or colored knee high socks. 
  • Go for a messy hairdo, wear it loose, or you can even bleach it to go with the unkempt look. Makeup wise, go heavy on the eye makeup. The dark smudgy Gothic look goes best with this style. If you don't want to opt for heavy eye makeup, you can add a bold red or maroon lipstick.
  • Last but not the least, don't forget to flaunt the "I don't care" attitude which is the main message behind the grunge style. 
Coming to my outfit, I'm wearing a maxi T-shirt dress with a thigh slit. Whether it's the charcoal gray color or the Ed hardy inspired rose and skull print, the dress speaks super grunge to me. I have added a red plaid shirt around my waist to layer the outfit. Accessory wise, leather combat boots and my super exploited black back pack completed the look. I left my hair open and added a bold red lip color to elevate the grunge look.
