Grunge. Our parents probably aren’t that excited about this trend’s revival. But the resurgence of this ’90s trend has unapologetically returned. But the goal isn’t to dress in a Kurt Cobain costume. It’s all about taking trendy pieces and making them modern and fresh.
Three of the trendiest looks for fall are Doc Martens (a la Miley Cyrus‘ only wardrobe item in her latest video), graphic sweatshirts and overalls. Check out three varied looks for each of the three trends. Take a look and get inspired!
Will you be wearing any of these trends this Autumn?
Using a statement piece like a graphic sweatshirt, as just another layering piece, instead of making it the centre of attention, gives off major fashionista vibes. Throw it on over a chambray and pair it with leather trousers and black wedge boots to add some sex appeal. Then, pile on another layer (like a sophisticated jacket) on top. Finish the look off with some attention-grabbing accessories that match the sweatshirt though, to subtly call attention to it.
Take your cues from the sweatshirt and have fun! A leather pencil skirt dresses it up a little bit. Pick a heel in an unexpected print, like camo, and wear bright accessories and makeup that playoff the colors in the sweatshirt. Top it off with big, glamorous earrings.
Take a no-so-reverent top, like a graphic sweatshirt, and class it up with t-strap leopard flats, a cluster of pearls necklace and a bold bag. It makes you look stylish without trying too hard.
This is how overalls were meant to be worn. This classic, tomboy look includes a cropped, long sleeve tee (to keep it stylish) and a trusted pair of trainers. Add an on-trend embellished baseball cap (in a Autumn colour like oxblood), and get a matching manicure. Accessories with timeless pieces like a brown satchel and a tortoise shell watch.
When in doubt, think: What Would Carrie Bradshaw Do. With these, she’d definitely take the opportunity to mix surprising genres. Challenge yourself to make overalls sexy and fancy. Pair them with a fitted black top and neon pumps. Add studded and sparkling accessories. Finish off with a faux fur vest and knit beanie to continue the layering and juxtaposition.
Channel your inner French woman by piling on classic pieces. A Breton striped sweater, leopard flats a bright red bag and a trench coat will make the overalls look totally timeless. Think of these pieces as neutrals, like black and white, they go with everything. But then, add a dainty, tongue-in-cheek piece of jewelry, like this skull ring.
Go full-on ’90s by wearing your Docs with a babydoll dress. You can even add ripped tights. Add a classic, well-made leather jacket to make it modern. Rock a heavy metal bracelet and wear red lipstick and keep your hair messy.

These clunky boots are perfect with polished, classic pieces like a pullover, skinny pants and a clutch with a bowler hat and aviators. It keeps the look youthful. Add luxe colors and textures like emerald, leather and leopard pony hair to up the richness.
