I’ve been seeing a couple of stars sporting flannels and dirty, unkempt jeans lately. A few girls I passed walking in the lower westside last Monday were rocking beanies and combat boots. I complimented one on her Metallica tee. My first thought was that they were hipsters, or at least hipster-esque. But when I put more thought into it, I realized that the late ’80s and early ’90s I-don’t-care, slightly messy yet kind of badass grunge look has been making a reappearance!
As a lover of anything fashionable and trendy, my style tends to vary from time to time. I’ll take certain aspects from different things I see, mixing and matching until I find a happy balance. That being said, I can’t say I rock the grunge look 24/7… but it is one of my favorite styles. And although it’s on the opposite spectrum of my typically preppy side, it’s one of my guiltiest pleasures that I love seeing others rock.

These are the absolute must-have staple pieces of the grunge look. The more worn in, the better. Opt for thrift stores with a vintage, well-lived in pair of old jeans, and a men’s flannel. Combine that with a classic rock tee and you’ll be grunge-ready in no time.
