When I saw this shot of Lydia Hearst from the editorial "Renaissance of Grunge" out of Russian Harper's Bazaar I was instantly drawn to it. It has the perfect gritty darkness to it & all of the 90's grunge wardrobe essentials. It's so easy to channel your inner grunge goddess, it's easy to wear one of the pieces on their own to get the look. I like to wear a flannel plaid unbuttoned with a tank underneath, or some rocker leggings with a pair of killer heels.
The grunge period in nineties fashion was in rebellion to the minimalism look that was so popular at the time. It emerged in Seattle along with grunge bands like Nirvana. People flocked to thrift stores for baggy and androgynous plaid flannel shirts. It didn't mean to start a fashion revolution, but the look has lasted for the past two decades.
Will you be sporting any plaid shirts, band tees, or crocheted scarves this winter?
