WHAT TO WEAR: Grunge for Brunch

WHAT TO WEAR: Grunge for Brunch

Brunch, the only time it is socially acceptable to order pancakes with a side of fries. Usually consisting of at least one photo of the food and an Instagram worthy selfie, brunch has become just as much of a trend as the grunge look. If you’re still enduring cold weather like New Yorkers, this trend can easily be adjusted for warmth.

Everyone always says history repeats itself, and this is definitely true when it comes to fashion. The edgy grunge trend was big in the ’90s and is making its appearance in the fashion world again. From graphic T-shirts to embroidered denim, there are many different ways to incorporate the rock inspired trend into your wardrobe. Mixing textures and varying darker colors is a big part of the grunge aesthetic.

This Fashionista is wearing her maroon Dr. Martens on her way to the best meal of the day, pairing the look with her favorite distressed, black denim and a skull and cross bones sweater. By finishing the look with a hooded leather jacket and some layered choker necklaces, she gives her outfit a put together feel and is ready to hit the food scene. What I love about the outfit is that by adding the leather jacket and Dr. Martens, she gives the otherwise matte outfit some shine. The outfit itself is not something that’s hard to achieve, but with the right amount of dark clothes and rock inspired pieces, anyone can put together a similar look.

Get out of your room, enjoy some brunch, and maybe consider adding a little edge to your look or wardrobe this season!
