OOTD 90’s Grunge

I was considered weird in my early teens in 90’s Gorton, Manchester. I dressed like an untidy boy and listened to weird out of tune music by a band called Nirvana. Then by my late teens ‘Grunge’ had hit all parts of Britain and I was cool apparently. These days with grunge being a popular look for off duty models there’s a legion of teens giving a damn about not looking like they give a dam. Irony upon irony.

I do alternate my style for different seasons and occasions but I always come back to some variation of this. I’ve piled it all on today as it’s so cold. If only I’d bought a leather jacket big enough to fit over the top!

    1. I’ve had a lot of people say that to me but to me it’s just my natural everyday look, although it easy to cross the line into scruffy if not thoughtful ☺

    1. It properly sunk in for me at 17 when Teen Spirit came on in a club and all these moshers and bikers and punks just went nuts together!

  5. I love this look, and you totally rock it. As Anita says – I think I would look like I’d been at the dressing up box, but you carry off this style fabulously!
