Starting in the 80s and popularized in the 90s, the grunge aesthetic features a distinctive style.
Taking its roots from the underground music scene of the 80s, the genre houses iconic bands like Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Hole. The overall style removes traditional societal expectations and represents a protest against materialistic trends and preppy fashion that was prominent. The aesthetic includes oversized jackets and hoodies, wide-leg jeans, platform sneakers or combat boots, and band t-shirts. Of course, this aesthetic is dark in nature, so keep the shades neutral, black or gray. Now, the entire aesthetic surrounds the rejection of traditional and flashy trends of the time, so make sure you’re comfortable while feeling a bit edgy.
