Trends for Less -- The Grunge Look

A really big trend this year is the "Grunge" look, for those of you who were born in the 80's (or before) you know that the grunge look was very popular during the 90's, well it has finally come back into style and it's getting very popular fairly quickly!

It seems that a lot of celebrities have been spotted wearing this style this Spring and I am pretty certain this up coming Summer as well. 
Let's just say the Grunge look is a very comfortable and laid back style. If I were to describe the grunge look in a few words, 
I would say it's a relax form of "rock and roll" type of clothing ...

Basically a whole lot of plaid shirts 

and very faded pants

also hand cut/cropped shorts

and faded neon colors

What I do love about this style is that it can be glam'd up as well, grunge doesn't necessarily mean you will look like you just woke up or you just came back from a rock and roll concert, as seen in the celebrities below it can look very glam and sexy:

Now that I've convinced you to try out this style....*wink* below are some of my favorite cheaper alternatives from Forever 21, all the items shown below are less than $20:

What do you think about this "grunge" style, would you rock it? Will you buy grunge looking clothes or make your own (such as fading it, cutting/trimming shorts, etc)? I think I will want to try the more glam grunge style to look a little bit more glam, yet be comfortable as well!

  1. i gotta be honest i dont like this at all it looks so sloppy! the glam grunge looks a little better haha. not my style.

  2. @Jessica I agree I LOVE the glam grunge a lot more than the regular look!!

  3. I'm not really into the ripped up bottoms, but I'm loving the grunge look on top. In fact, I could use several of these items for my gigs. My wardrobe is sadly failing me when it comes time to rock-out on the weekends and this is totally up my alley :).

  4. @Sidney I know what u mean my wardrobe is failing me too at times! Glad you will be rocking out some of these tops!

  5. I love the grunge look, sometimes it makes dressing up when you don't want to so much easier.

  6. I love the "glam" grunge look too:) casual but cool.. great post!! xoxox

  7. I really like the grunge look over that Boho-hippy look that I have been seeing lately. I will definitely sport the grunge look especially since you can find it at Forever 21!

  8. I love the first top! I don't really have any grunge looks but the glam grunge look is growing on me! Especially a super feminine top paired with faded or distressed jeans.

    Cool post!

  9. Omg I must be a style god cause I was thinking about buying plaided shirts, I need new clothes so bad, this give me a idea, thanks for posting.
