The Grunge Trend Explained | EGO

Grunge is a trend staple that never really goes away, resurfacing year on year as a go-to look. I mean we need no excuse to wear our favourite colour, think black on black on even more black. But this year has seen an even bigger revival of the nineties trend, with standout features at last year’s Coach SS17 show at NYFW and more recently, Nicole Miller’s and Alexander Wang’s A/W’17 shows earlier this month, both bringing gritty designs to the runway teamed with the signature, Doc-Martenesque biker boot that dominates the grunge look.

You can work the trend away from the traditional biker styles with heeled ankle boots or over the knee boots, showing that you really don’t need to shy away from height. Experiment with distressed denim, oversized sweats and dark accessories.
