Grunge outfits are a very popular alternative attire within social media, such as Instagram, Pinterest and now TikTok.
It's a mix of casual & distressed black clothes, combat boots, fishnet tights, baggy denim shorts & pants among all sorts of accessories such as piercings and necklaces.
The grunge aesthetic is a fashion style that originated and was popular in the late 1980s & early 1990s.
It was not only a fashion statement, but also a sign of rebellion against the mainstream, mostly influenced by alternative music bands such as Nirvana, Soundgarden & Alice in Chains that received heavy rotation in MTV's golden era.
Now they have received a resurgence within young, trendy people who like to be different from the rest of the crowd, but also with a nostalgia hint to its old school roots.
In this post, we will show you grunge outfits ideas and how they can inspire you to make your new-look stand out.
