Bringing modern retro clothing into the fashion scene is definitely on the uprise. You see it in movies, on the front pages of magazines, and in most people’s closets. You don’t need to go out and buy a new wardrobe if you just look in your own collection. Modern grunge fashion is unique to each of us as individuals, and dressing the part will bring out the rebel in you. If you think it’s hard to do, you might be surprised. All it takes is wearing your favorite old ‘90s band t-shirt with a button-down flannel shirt, a pair of torn jeans, and Doc Marten boots. Just like that, you’ll be ready to rock it grunge-style.

Flannel Shirts and Crop Tops

Modern retro clothing isn’t hard to find. You may have something lurking in your closet right now. One of the easiest ways to get your grunge on is by pairing a cute crop top with your favorite flannel shirt. It can be worn loosely or tied around the waist with torn jeans or shorts with a pair of ripped fishnet stockings. Finally, complete the look with a pair of biker boots or Doc Martens, and you’ll be ready to release the rebel inside of you.

Layer the Modern Way

We all love our flannel, but did you know you can keep your grunge aesthetic with more modern apparel? Try a crop top paired with a kimono sweater. Wear your favorite t-shirt and a snazzy blazer with a skirt or skinny jeans. With either outfit, the outcome will be stunning. Choosing the right pieces of clothing is the key to achieving modern grunge fashion. Following these suggestions will get you on your way to perfecting the look you long for, but feel free to add a special touch to make it your own.

Boots and Boyfriend Jeans

Modern retro clothing wouldn’t be complete without boots and boyfriend jeans. Combat boots and boyfriend jeans give the appearance that, yeah, you’re into the retro scene, but you also prefer a little pop of modern along the way. Doc Marten boots will give your outfit a much-needed layer of grunge, and they will never go out of style. Grab a black leather jacket to complete the look.

The Modern Baby Doll

If you prefer the softer side of the grunge movement, then pairing that little black dress with combat boots and fishnet stockings will have your friends in awe. Adding accessories goes a long way, so make sure you pick out a killer choker to complete your ensemble. If you’re looking for modern grunge fashion, then you can look in your closet or go on a shopping spree for an LBD and a black moto jacket. Wear this outfit paired with the right accessories, such as chokers, vintage sunglasses, and converse high-tops, and you’re ready to set the night on fire!
