Outrageous grunge style can be called original, because it easily combines elements of many fashion trends, catchy, massive accessories and extraordinary hairstyles. Harmonious combinations allow you to create a well-groomed and unique look.
Grunge style 2017
Born in the last decade of the twentieth century, the modern grunge style in clothing in 2017 manifests itself in a combination of hippie casualness, hard rock metal, vintage romanticism, software minimalism, military austerity and discreet glamour, although it itself arose in opposition to the latter. He became one of the favorite «outfits» of mega stars and firmly entered the everyday urban casual. It is characterized by dark and light colors, natural fabrics, muted prints and checks. The basis of the «classic» grunge style is denim and leather.
Ripped and washed jeans look great with corset blouses, T-shirts, T-shirts and leather jackets, and T-shirt dresses with casual abstraction and patterns in the form of skeletons look great with boots, socks, whole and holey dark or fishnet tights. Diverse accessories successfully complement youth ensembles:
- hats, caps, caps;
- cardigans and loose shirts;
- voluminous bags «giants» and even clutches.
Grunge style in clothes
The non-trivial grunge style in clothes for women constantly breaks all stereotypes and traditions, does not have strict age restrictions and allows you to combine directly opposite things, with one but. We decided to experiment with images — do not take the literal translation of «grange» (garbage, dirt) as a guide to action. Complete freedom and comfort along with absolute grooming is the main rule when creating bows in this style.
Multi-layered women’s “outfits” look exquisite, in which the selected items are more restrained than the outfits of rebellious youth, but all are designed in a single composition. Great solutions for young fashionistas:
- shorts and shapeless sweaters;
- massive leather shoes and comfortable sneakers;
- denim with the effect of aging and sailor;
- long scarves and sunglasses, even on rainy days.
Along with the traditional «grandmother’s dresses», the new fashionable grunge dresses, presented on the catwalks of many brands, are becoming a bright and worthy alternative to boring everyday solutions — neo-grunge style. In the trend: plaid, fringe, inscriptions, T-shirt dresses and layered outfits, consisting of sundresses worn over T-shirts and T-shirts, jackets, cardigans and raincoats over dresses.
Glamor grunge style. Leading fashion designers once again proved that there are no super strict rules in grunge style and brilliantly supplemented it with elements of glamor, making what was considered unacceptable. Great solutions from the young American brand GEORGINE deserve attention. Well, and who will forbid to come to work in an informal office in a black and white midi set, to a party in a sheath dress or dark guipure mini, or choose a dress from Daria Karlozi for your wedding?
Grunge style skirt
True fans of this trend know that another basic detail — a grunge skirt can be not only «old» denim and cotton, but also leather, velvet, wool, and sewn from chiffon and crepe de chine. How do you like a suit made of genuine leather and a combination of velvet with an elongated leather jacket and tights? Impressive, as well as ensembles consisting of a white blouse or black turtleneck and plaid midi skirts, complemented in the first case with a blue bag and a dark hat, and in the second with a leather jacket and a medium trunk to match the top.
Summer multi-layered maxi skirts made of light fabrics in combination with T-shirts and voluminous not hot sweaters are very comfortable in everyday life; such outfits perfectly hide minor figure errors. A special sophistication of the grunge style is emphasized by bohemian and branded suits of mini-skirts and T-shirts, while the white bottom and black top, high dark leggings and shoes in addition with a printed bag are almost a “classic” look.
It is undeniable that grunge style ripped jeans brought from the American streets to the global level, falling in love with its unusual rebellious youth. On trend:
- boyfriends, light flare and pipes;
- long and short models;
- holes and «patches»;

The grunge style in clothes for girls and women is represented by hit ensembles:

A distinctive feature in various stylized bows is “aged” grunge-style leather boots with laces and zippers (camelots, grinders), stable boots and military boots, “male” shoes with low speed and massive soles. Versatile summer and winter sneakers are convenient, and not necessarily dark and oppressive shades. In warm weather, eclecticism allows you to pick up sandals, both on medium, high heels, and on a thin platform.
Traditional additions. Grunge style for women has certain requirements for the choice of jewelry. A tribute to hippies and hard rock — multi-layered accessories made of stones, metal and leather: wide and narrow bracelets, often with spikes and rivets, massive certain rings and chains with pendants. Love grunge style? Flashy jewelry, several rings on one finger, or the whole hand in bracelets will suit you. Here the choice depends only on personal preferences.

- Wear all jewelry at the same time.
- Chains around the neck in several rows and chokers.
- Do not forget about the cap, hat, cap and sunglasses.

Penultimate strokes. Under the definition of a grunge hairstyle, an expression in an indirect sense is suitable: “I washed my hair at night, but did not forget to comb it in the morning.”
- Always in trend and correspond to the chosen direction, the natural «looseness» of hair, slightly careless braids and tails.
- New trends — asymmetric styling with the effect of a shaved temple on long and short hair, feathers, partial and full multicolor.

Finishing touches. Makeup and manicure in grunge style can be done not only in generally accepted dark colors, but also in hit deviations from the canons, clearly and harmoniously woven into the overall “outfit”. The grunge style in makeup manifests itself in two mutually exclusive forms:
- Natural minimalism, where light shades are used, slightly correcting the face, eyeliner and lipstick in neutral tones, or lip gloss without mother-of-pearl, or the complete absence of any makeup.
- Complex smoky eyes or its light variations, rich shades of lipsticks. Choose a palette of shadows should be in accordance with your type, skin tone and eye color. Beige suits almost everyone.
As for nail design, the classics of the genre in manicure are black, dark gray and rich red colors without patterns, and the permissible deviations are modern shades and non-vegetal prints, combination with gold, relief and geometric metal jewelry, dark jacket and broken glass. «.
