The 90’s grunge trend is on the way toward a full scale revival.  From mid-calf slouchy dresses, to faded denim, this trend is back with vengeance in 2012. Why do we love grunge so much this year? We think it’s because of the careless abandon of the fashion rules.  Sometimes we crave to look, different, unique and carefree and that is exactly what grunge fashion is.  The best part about the grunge fashion revival is that great grunge pieces can be found at your local thrift store. That makes this trend fun to wear and just as fun to shop for, in a scavenger hunt kind of way. Here are our top 5 must haves for your fall grunge wardrobe.

Distressed floral dress

That relaxed, faded and worn look is exactly what you want to find in a distressed floral dress. To complete the grunge look pair with leather ankle boots and a bowler hat.

Oversized knit sweater

Another 90’s grunge staple to look for is a neutral color oversized sweater. Pair with ripped denim shorts and finish of your look with worn sneakers with for a modern grunge look.


Leggings are the most versatile grunge wardrobe piece. Wear under a plaid shirt, under high waist denim shorts or under your distressed floral dress. This is also a great way to recycle those ripped legging, because the rips work even better with this style

Leather Jacket

The classic black leather jacket is great for the grunge look, it’s masculine structured rock edge is the perfect complement to the grunge vibe. Wear your leather jacket over a crop top and black ripped skinny jeans and you’ll be ready to rock in no time.

Plaid Shirt

No proper grunge look would be complete without the good old plaid shirt. Look for a plaid shirt that has red hues in a relaxed fit. You can pair with skinny jeans, leggings or over a dress. For a daring and sexy grunge look, find a plaid shirt long enough to be a dress and belt it. Finish off your sultry grunge look with black studded ankle boots.
