We all know it: 90’s grunge is back. I have mixed feelings about this. Why? Because some people are doing it totally wrong. Now, I am not saying mine is the right way; we all have different tastes. But if you’re someone that wants to take a risky dip into this grunge style: I am here to show you how to ease into it. No, you don’t have to rush out to get a pair of platform sneakers, die your hair pink, & wear black lipstick. Why not incorporate some of your OWN style into it, too?! Let’s see how I did it:
This cute tie top from Le tote is such a perfect piece to have when you want to have a grunge flare. It is super versatile & lightweight for the summer! Let’s not forget about the permanent knot it has… too cute! Paired it with my new fave pair of BF jeans & obviously- the distressed aspect represents grunge flawlessly.
I then added my favorite necklace I own right now! I also received this in my Le Tote box and could not be more in love with it! We all know chokers are the epitome of the 90’s era: & this suede choker was the perfect touch!
& for my own personal touch: Screw those black leather platforms that we all think we need to keep up with the latest trends. I chose to pair this whole outfit with a neutral pair of laced wedges. This automatically turned it into an outfit that I can wear for a night out while giving it a clean touch.
Note to my fashion lovers & loyal followers:
I sometimes find myself becoming frustrated with “trends” & people that follow them. A lot of fashion lovers feel that being “head to toe” what that trend is, is what makes you stylish. No, so so so wrong. Being stylish is about studying those trends & figuring out how you can make it your own. (I.E you may not look good in black lipstick, that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate 90’s grunge into your style. You may not look great in black lipstick but you probably look killer in red! So, rock a red lip, a black choker, & throw plaid shirt around your waist. Boom, you’ve incorporated the “trend” of 90’s style into your look- without sacrificing your individuality that makes your style your own.) Don’t go buy black lipstick or platform shoes if one: they don’t compliment you, and two: you don’t even like them in the first place.
Thanks so much to the fabulous Le Tote for letting me rock a grunge inspired look- but with my own personal touch. I hope you all remember to wear what you love, dress your best, & always feel inspired to be different.
