From Platinum-Haired Surfer Portraits to Powdery Witchcraft Fashion Ads

 - Sep 23, 2013
This collection of grunge fashion looks pay homage to the 90s-infused look. The grunge style in 2013 is often infused with other elements like glamour, surfer culture and gothic makeup looks. Other grunge giveaways include layering, leather, spikes, flannel and a general air of messiness. The Nirvana-esque punk attitude is still present with a wild, youthful and free-spirited vibe present in most of these fashion editorials. With terminology like ‘hoodlum’ and ‘gangster,’ it is clear that grunge fashion looks are still youth-focused, with ageist undertones implying young people are not contributing value to society. This theme was often explored in the music of the 1990s as well.

The large majority of these trends are photographic in nature, taking the form of editorials and advertising. Others are designer collections or specific items like the Victorian Combat Stilettos.
