17 Throwback Grunge Styles That Are Oh, Well, Whatever, Nevermind
Editor’s Note: This post was originally part of our 2014 April Fools’ Prank. And because we think the ’90s are all that (and a bag of chips), we decided to update it for all you present-day readers. Keep on scrolling to keep the angsty/sparkly dream alive ;)
It’s a throwback trend as easy to master as Angela Chase’s apathetic eye roll: Grunge, the angst-ridden ’90s style as raw as the Seattle sound that it took its name from. Now decades later, the “Come As You Are” look is back in full force, still as messy and maintenance-free as ever, and is of course, not totally complete without a Courtney Love-inspired dark red lip. Get real with these 17 shoppable grunge styles that channel your inner teen spirit and make you the gnarliest babe on the block, or whatever. Headbang as you scroll with our slammin’ playlist.
