90s Grunge

Best get yourself a fizzy Panda and a Pop Tart. There’s a WHOLE lotta 90s goin’ down in this post.

Forget the bubblegum pop princess style of the Spice Girls though, because this year’s 90s trend takes inspiration from a very different scene. Think Nirvana, Hole, Mother Love Bone and Soundgarden.

Are you scared yet?

If you need some serious style inspiration, watch epic nineties films like The Craft and Cameron  Crowe’s 1992 romcom Singles. If you haven’t seen the latter, it’s a good ‘un… not least for the very cool Pearl Jam soundtrack. (My husband will give me a lot of respect points for saying that…)

I found a gorgeous skull skirt from H+M (be careful not to put your heel through it, as I nearly did a million times), and wore it with my denim Forever 21 shirt and Topshop biker.

If you’re looking for a super long-line vest (aren’t we always?), this grey one is from Miss Selfridge where you can currently buy 2 for £12.

The chunky necklace (and gold tone ring) hail from H&M, while the giant perspex cocktail ring is from Miss Selfridge.

Anyone game for grunging it up with me? And which of you leggy lovelies remember wearing this look the first time around?

  1. You look lovely, but that’s not the grunge I remember from 90s Seattle. (Crazy that I still live here in ’13). I remember lots of flannel shirts, cut offs and hiking boots. Not nearly as put together and cute as what you have here. And, yes, I LOVED Singles.

    • He he! Shall we say it’s a nod to the 90s with a 2013 twist? Wow… My dad went to seattle to write about the music legacy there and LOVED the place. Would love to visit. Yup, Singles is brill. Glad a true Seattle girl agrees! Xxx

  2. Love the skirt, and the longline vest tip, but where are the boots from? In dire need of something that isn’t my clumpy brown winter boots! x

  3. Aah sorry Sally… I’ve featured those boots so many times that I didn’t add the link because I thought everyone would know by now! They’re leather zip-up boots from Topshop and the size 42 is perfect for my size 9s. (It’s normally a bit wee for me, but most of the boots seem to come up bigger) xxx
