Something about fall weather makes me long for 90’s girly grunge. Maybe it’s the plaid, or the denim jackets, or the boots. Whatever it is, I’m planning to go full on girly grunge for autumn this year. It’s still over 30C every day here in Dallas, but I’m longing for shorter and cooler days so Ican bring out my tights, boots, and denim jacket!
I’m serving girly grunge realness here:
(I’m in a Leota New York dress via Dia&Co, a Premme denim jacket, and Steve Madden boots.)
Shop My Looks!
This River Island Leopard Print Dress (US Link) is just the right amount of girly grunge. The twist at the waist gives it that little extra, and you can layer on a blazer for the office. It’s a little investment at £46 but the amount of ways you can style this makes it worth it.
This sherpa lined Levi’s jacket from Simply Be is a classic for a reason and worth the investment.
Get girly with this embroidered shirt dress – perfect with tights and boots, or layered over leggings for extra chilly evenings.
Go grunge with this black and white plaid top from Yours Clothing. Tuck it into a skirt or layer it over black skinny jeans for maximum effect.
Ass Kicking Boots
These extra wide fit boots from Simply Be have a trendy metallic heel and the promise of all day comfort – what more could you ask for in a dressy boot?
Doc Martens! The original grunge footwear choice! This pair gets a girly upgrade with embroidered roses. Perfect for tromping around in actual rainy, muddy fall weather.
I am a firm, firm believer in red lipstick, and these are my two favourites this fall.
