I mentioned the other day that I had been watching "My So Called Life" and was loving the oversized plaid shirt look. Then I went into Urban Outfitters and realised that they have nailed this trend.
Conquering the 90's grunge trend:
Plaid shirts - that means checks and tartan style fabrics!
Heavy boots like Doc Martins or Converse sneakers
You can either hunt for vintage items (is it vintage if it's only from the nineties?!) or buy new from places like Urban Outfitters or Topshop. This look works best on tall, skinny girls (unfortunately) as they can layer up and wear boyfriend sized items without looking dumpy! Think Kristen Stewart on a super moody day.
Here are my favourite pictures from around the net to inspire you.....
