Autumn/Winter style has always been my favourite and this year I’m pretty much loving every trend that’s been fighting the catwalk and hughstreet. So I thought I’d create a series of outfits tailored to each trend that’s out there at the minute. I think trends are great inspirations, however I don’t necessarily stick to them all of them time, it’s always good to mix and match the trends and take inspirations from them here and there.
This season the Grunge trend is back with a bang, everyones going a little bit punk rock and I’m not complaining, I feel as though my 14 year old self who lived in band tee’s and converse is slowly coming back to life! The grunge trend has pretty much taken over the hughstreet, every shop you go in from Zara to Urban Outfitters there’s something in there that fits in perfectly with the Grunge trend. Here’s my take on this key A/W ’16 trend!
If you don’t know my love for fish not tights, then you must be new here, so welcome and apologies in advance if i get you hooked up on this trend also…It’s addictive. If you’re not a fan of band tee’s and denim, you can simply whack on a pair of fish net tights and your outfit instantly has the Grunge appeal. I however, like to give it the whole shabang. Yeah, I’m talking leopard print coat, baggy tee, denim skirt and my trusted fishnets you literally cannot go wrong!
Leopard print is really having a moment this year, in many ways I feel a little sad about this purely because last year I search to the high heavens to got my hands on this Leopard print coat. However this year they’re pretty much stocked in every shop. Although I have managed to get my hands on THE most perfect leopard print boots EVER. You’ll have to keep an eye out as there’s no doubt you’re gonna be seeing them whenever I get the chance to whip them out, sorry not sorry!
GRUNGE SPIRIT STYLING TIPS
Although I’m a firm believer in simply taking a bit of inspiration from a trend, there’s a few key items that I think really create this look and are up for discussion when it comes to making the look your own! I mean, obviously we know that I think fishnets really make this look however if you’re no into the whole fishnet trend, here’s how I’d style it…
A biker jacket is perfect for this trend, as it instantly adds an edge to an outfit even if you’re wearing a T-shirt and jeans, you can’t really go wrong with a biker jacket. Secondly, although when most people think ‘grunge’ you think of everything being black and a bit moody, I think that adding a bit of animal print really individualises the look and although it’s over all quite colourless leopard print give instant bad ass vibes, even if you’re like me and you’re in bed by 10pm with a cup of tea in hand. It’s all about the art of perception right?
