Simplicity at its finest. This outfit screams grunge, and for anybody out there yelling “hipster!” I suggest you go watch footage of a Nirvana concert and get out of my face.

Fittingly dubbed “pale style”, this outfit is perfect for those casual days where you don’t want to go too casual — you never want to go too casual, why? Just think of an all velvet onesie greeting you as you walk down the street. I know right. Sometimes comfort has to be sacrificed in the name of taste.

4. Flannelette shirt, black ripped jean shorts, studded handbag, maroon knee highs, combat boots, and a half bangle necklace

Cozy little outfit for a cozy little day. Perfectly grunge and perfectly ok with me.

5. Ripped jeans, plaid shirt, pin stripe undershirt, beanie, laced light-boots, black crystal necklace

Wear the plaid shirt around your waist like the picture shows, for that tad extra grunginess — or lords of dogtownish, just throw on a pair of vans I suppose.

6. Flannel shirt, boots, black jeans, light grey sleeveless undershirt, and black crystal necklace

Another simple and effortless outfit. When I’m in a rush, this is what you’ll see me looking like, and I have to say, I don’t think I mind having to rush after catching a glimpse of myself one day in a parked bus’s mirror. One word: snazzy.

7. Dark flannel patterned shirt, ripped blue jeans, black T

The flannel is something that matches with the black T so well, that having this one on here is a little unfair to most people who will never find a shirt like this. Never fear, I am in this camp also, and I can’t tell whether or not it’s good to have this photo as a reference image, or bad as I find myself eating my tears over the thought that I’ll never have it.

8. Floppy cardigan, floral shorts, one strap sandals, black handbag, round shades, brown watch, crescent necklace

Accessories city. Only attempt this outfit if you know you’re not going to be needing to do anything strenuous for long periods of time, otherwise, you’ll be wanting to rip everything off in a fit of werewolf like rage. No? Just me? Well then…

9. Black cap, black T, Black Doc Martens, denim print shorts, brown watch, thick banded gold chain necklace

Belly showing outfit with black Doc Martens — what else could you want? Well, many things I suppose, but not when simplicity over complexity is your mantra.

10. Floral dress, black leather shoes, white chunky socks, dark denim jacket

Really love the contrast between the jet black shoes, grey dress, and dark dye jacket on this one. The chunky white socks give it that cutesy edge.

11. Striped V-neck T, chunky scarf, dark rolled denim jeans, and white low-cut Converse all-stars

White Chuck Taylors with dark denim jeans is an exquisite combination — even more so because they click perfectly with a grunge feel.

A fresh look with an upbeat feel.

5 Excellent clothing item options, not so much the last two for me, but hey, whatever floats your boat, right?

14. Plaid shirt, ripped denim jeans, brimmed hat, vinyl T, and beige suede shoes

Beige is the new blue (at least where suede shoes are concerned), and you don’t need to look anywhere else to realise why that’s the case. Classy, raw, sophisticated, simple, and perfectly grungy.

15. Green plaid shirt, torn jeans, cowboy tassel boots, wide brim hat, brown tinted glasses, and black sleeveless T

Love the boots on this one, and the shades match amazingly. Even the phone case goes with the look.

16. Red plaid shirt, striped dress T, green canvass jacket, red beanie, black laced boots, brown leather bag, and matching accessories

Throw on and off the jacket to fit the environment, but always walk in style regardless.

18. Red wash flannel, black sleeveless T, torn jeans, black Doc Martens

A fall outfit not only in function, but in look. Black Doc martens are a staple in the grunge closet, and it’s no surprise why when you look at its place in this particular outfit.

19. Black leather jacket, plaid shirt, black heel boots, torn light blue jeans, and no-sleeve T

A cute outfit for the cooler days that absolutely demand a batman beanie to be warn because, why not? The buckled addition to these boots adds a different dynamic than we’re used to in laced boots, and the shirt simple can’t sum it up any better — killin’ it!

21. Dark green and blue flannel shirt, short sleeve varsity T, and ripped light blue jeans

An indie style crop top acts as an undershirt for this flannel outfit. In inspired, with an adult grunge overtone, this outfit is easy and doable for almost any situation.

To wear black or not to wear black? Who knows, but it looks good on the shirt. And also the handbag.

23. White geometric/tribal inspired crop top, black shorts, black print beanie, and sunnies. Red geometric/tribal inspired crop top, black shorts, black print beanie, and sunnies.

Wasted youth and broken dreams, be alternative, or f***ing leave!

The old adage of best till last holds more than its fair share of crystal clear water here, and the proof is in the pudding (or rather, picture). Keep it grunge, keep it safe, and happy clothes hunting.
