Grunge Style

According to Elle, grunge is in. I live in Seattle, where the evolution of grunge began. Elle is a worldwide known fashion publication, so one could safely assume they’re on trend.

Elle suggests a silk dress by Dolce & Gabbana (to view Elle’s grunge picks, click here), but with the 1,675 dollar price tag; this isn’t exactly inspiring for your typical fashionista struck by hard times in our current downed economy. Additionally, the dress is only available at select boutiques and stores.

For some cheaper inspiration, check out this flattering ditsy florals dress: Journee’s V-Neck Floral Print Dress. This cotton and rayon dress is available at Target online and in stores. The price is a very reasonable $39.99. This dress is a gray color with a v-neck pullover style in a loose comfortable fit that hits above the knee.

For another reasonably priced grunge style dress, check out Roxy’s Hazy Surf Print Dress, available for $49.50 at lulu’s here. The dress is black featuring various colored flowers in a lovely motif. It has an unconventional criss crossing styling in the back. It features chiffon fabric in a polyester spandex blend.

Any of these dresses would pair nicely with some Dr. Martens boots. Right now, the Dr. Martens online shoe store is featuring select winter styles up to 60% off. These tall dark brown ones, part of the company’s modern classics comfort collection, fit the bill nicely. They are regularly 150 bucks, now only $75.00. They are made of a soft leather material so there is no need to break them in, they should fit comfortably right out of the box.
