Never Conform!

I have just finished reading an article by a reputable magazine titled “How to do grunge (in a subtle and wearable way)” which has left me quite perplexed. Being a girl that was  in her late teens / early twenties when the grunge movement came about I can honestly say that there is nothing that you can wear that says grunge in a subtle way. Grunge was all about the music culture and going against society at the time. The music has passed and our societies have changed but we can still wear our docs and flannelette shirts, but thinking of grunge in a ready to wear commercial way just doesn’t work for me.

When it comes to grunge I say: Rebel against the norm and never conform to a “ready to wear” grunge look. Rock your docs, rock your flanno’s with your own style and reminisce about the 90’s where the music also rocked our worlds.

Here are a few items done right in the essence of Grunge.
