Grunge is not only a trend in fashion and music, but also a style that has a spiritual meaning. It implies a protest against glamor, a denial of the appearance accepted by society. There are no limits for him – he is impudent and untidy. Therefore, for those who want to stand out from the crowd and express themselves, this style is perfect. Grunge was born in the 90s in America and in rock music. Kurt Cobain from the Nirvana group was its brightest representative.
At the moment, grunge is quite popular, in everyday life this style is used by Johnny Depp, Kristen Stewart, and Chloe Grace Moretz and many others.

- shapeless bags, backpacks;
- plaid shirts, pants and/or skirts;

How to dress grunge in summer
To dress in this style, it is not necessary to have a lot of things in your wardrobe, the main thing is what combinations you can make with them. All the necessary elements are purchased both in second-hand and mass-market, as well as in luxury stores. But it is worth remembering that grunge is characterized by cheap, aged and casual clothes.
A couple of tips for creating an image:
- Use dark, muted shades: blue, black, brown.
- Buy oversized clothes (1-3 sizes larger);
- To make the bow careless – holes, dirt, scuffs;
- Look for cheap fabrics. For example, from flannel;
- Try to look for clothes at home, pawned somewhere far away a long time ago. Perhaps it will just come in handy for summer outfits.
Who is grunge for?
The grunge style is suitable for all ages, as it has no boundaries and screams that it does not recognize the rules in fashion. You should not listen to the opinions of others – it is important to dress the way you want. Male and female grunge, in truth, are not much different.
