The New Grunge


I'm a 90's kid. Let me date myself by saying I have the fondest of memories when it comes to watching the original My Little Ponies, Care Bears, Saved By The Bell, Boy Meets World, and yeah, I may have had a little crush on Joey Lawrence in Blossom. Woah!

There's just something about the ripped jeans, crop tops, and flannel galore that gives me the warm fuzzies. I've been noticing a ton of these items reappearing on my fall fashion radar so I thought it was worth creating a 90's inspired lookbook.

Here's my video on 3 ways to wear modernized 90's Grunge as well as a few items that totally scream "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to me.


A few items that have piqued my 90's-style interest:





Readers, what do you think of the resurgence of grunge fashion? Is there anything you would or wouldn't wear? What was your favorite 90's show? Let me know in the comments!

  8. Well you look adorable and I also grew up in the 90's so all these shows are very nolstagic for me and I can still picture Gwen Stefani jumping around on stage in crop tops with No Doubt fondly BUT I really don't like the grunge look at all. I think the 80's and the 90's were such a weird time for fashion, but whereas in the 80's everything felt more fun grunge just feels slightly depressing and sad to me. I mean this was the age of the Smashing Pumpkins where being depressed was super cool. Lol I just can't get there...even in a modernized form. But again I will say you pull it off beautifully :)

    1. Hahaha I agree about the not-fun depressing part. It's funny but I actually associate that time with watching really happy shows on tv. Wasn't a fan of the dreary music scene since I was busy playing with My Little Ponies. ;)

      And seriously No Doubt!!!! I was a little obsessed with Gwen Stefani in that Tragic Kingdom period. :)

  9. I miss the 90s!!! The shows were the best! Cartoons, Sitcoms, you name it, they're just not the same anymore. I was a HUGE baggy clothes offender back in the 90s, partly because I wore big brother's hand me downs. But I remember the grunge music scene, I like some of that music, but I was big on the Battle of the Boy Bands, R&B and I absolutely loved the pop music scene. I saw a mention of No Doubt, and I'm STILL in love with Gwen, she's beautiful and a timeless beauty! I loved anything she wore that was neon!

  16. I love this post. There are so many trends from the 90's that have come back in style. My favorite 90's trend is the crop top.
