One of the biggest fashion comebacks over the past few years has to be the 90s grunge revival and it doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. From vintage band tees and oversized plaid shirts to chokers and combat boots, it's ALL back and I love it!  

As a kid growing up in the 90s I wasn't really aware of all the trends I was too young and far too busy obsessing over the Spice Girls at the time! It wasn't until the early 2000s, when I was around 14 years old, that I discovered the whole grunge / rock / metal scene. Back then it was a bit of a challenge to find 'alternative' fashions, the internet wasn't as accessible as today and there was only a hand full of local shops that catered for this style. Nowadays you can pop into any high street store and find an array of 'alternative' fashions, (can it really be considered alternative now it has become so mainstream?) I love how obtainable and affordable it has become, the only downside to this is that a lot of people will be wearing the same thing. So it really comes down to how you style it to make it unique.

For this weeks look I am wearing a khaki mesh t-shirt dress I found on Boohoo.com. I absolutely love this dress it screams 90s grunge with its oversized shape and layered sleeves. I styled this with some large fishnets, a lace choker and a pair of round tortoiseshell sunglasses. As for the shoes, I recently purchased these gorgeous embroidered creepers from amazon, they compliment the dress perfectly and tie the entire look together.

I love the whole grunge aesthetic but what appeals to me the most is the way it effortlessly combines the feminine with the masculine, Courtney Love, Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore are great examples for this, I'm always looking to them for inspiration.

  1. Awesome look. I looove a good tshirt dress, and this is why. Really suits you. Also loving the tights. When I was a student, I used to be big into fishnets (which I'd rip holes in as well!) which I'd pair with leg warmers and battered Dunlop Green Flash and as many bracelets as I could fit, a blazer and a little kilt. Dear god, it was not a good look! But I still like the chicer side of grunge and you demonstrate that beautifully here! X
