What Does Going Grunge Look Like?

Ready to make grunge a part of your wardrobe but not sure where to start? Think T-shirts and flannels, leggings, and skirts. Embrace the bedhead and get yourself some Doc Martens, Chucks, or other chunky shoes, and you're ready to go. Start with a tank top, the perfect underlayer, and add a shirt, flannel, vest, or sweater for a grungy ‘90s look you’ll love. Layer those layers, and you've captured the essence!

Why Are Leggings Great for Layering?

One of the most important staples of your wardrobe will be your pair of leggings. Why? You can wear leggings alone or pair them under a long T-shirt, tunic, or dress to rock the grunge look. But not all leggings are created equal.

Leggings are the perfect wardrobe staple; they match well with any shoe, from boots to sneakers. Look for soft and stretchy leggings that can easily pair with everything or be a statement piece for your look.

Bright Color Choices for a Y2K Look

A hallmark of the Y2K fashion movement is bright colors. The vivid hues and nostalgia from Y2K were just what the world needed after dealing with the stress of entering the new millennium. Looking to stars like Britney, spaghetti straps, crop tops, bright colors, and rhinestones leaped onto the fashion scent, and they’re back once again.

Bright colors will light up your days! Nobody will miss seeing you coming when you suit up in these neon and bright-colored threads. So, slip into your faves and show you're ready to knock out any Y2K bug!


Some of our favorite bright-color options:


Wearing Bright Colors

Bright colors can pair great with muted tones and are a great way to add contrast to your wardrobe. Stand out with neon colors that add fun to your style! The cheerful palette of brights adds beauty to every outfit. Add them into your wardrobe with fun T-shirts, tops, tank tops, and even retro-style shorts.

Wearing Pastels

While the original grunge style could lean more towards dark colors, flannels, and ripped jeans, you can add some pastels to match the modern grunge and give it your own flair!
