Return Of Grunge

Dries Van Norten SS Grunge Fashion
Yep another trend that was around in the 90’s is re appearing again in 2013, Grunge fashion never really went away with ripped jeans, doc martens and check shirts always in fashion. But this season we can look forward to slogan tees, acid wash jeans ripped or not, dungarees shorts and dresses, Converse high tops, red lipstick and painted nails! It was also the year that Thelma & Louise made their getaway!

90’s Grunge Street Fashion

To add a more grown up touch to the Grunge trend, try adding leather or velvet to your outfit, a leather or velvet pencil skirt is great and would look amazing worn with loose fitting plaid shirt and ankle boots- Doc Martens or other clumpy style boot. Or like seen on the Dries Van Norten ss collection plaid shirts/ tops in fancy materials- chiffon, high shine materials and silks look amazing and give the trend an updated look for 2013.

Or go all Courtney Love in skin tone- Nude- dresses, sexy and yet very laid back in style terms- wear with minimal jewellery- Red lips and short painted nails in dark shades.

Vintage Florals

Dries Van Norten Spring 2013
Trend update number two… Now Floral prints are nothing new for Spring & Summer, this year however designers are stepping away from ditzy prints to vintage style florals. Some are so beautifully printed, like the ones shown at Dries Van Norten, that you can’t really tell that they are/were flowers. My kind of floral print. Colour wise go bold, go subtle, go clashing or go blue… Really go however the mood takes you, all goes this season. The coolest way to wear your floral prints though is by clashing them with other prints, think plaid & floral and you will be on to a winner.
