FALL 2020 RUNWAY TRENDS: NOUVEAU GRUNGE

Welcome to part two of the 10 part Runway Inspiration for your Fall Wardrobe series. In case you missed part one, for this series, I combed through the biggest fall 2020 fashion shows (New York, Milan, Paris and London) and pulled 10 distinctive looks that were all over the runway during the major fashion weeks. I then online shopped my little heart out and compiled the best pieces under $100 inspired by the highlighted fashion trends. Check out trend number two, Nouveau Grunge.

The '90s have come back in a big way in 2020, and old school rock and roll grunge is no exception. We've already rocked it with the biker shorts fad that dominated spring and summer, and the fall/winter trend outlook suggests that grunge it is here to stay. For fall, don't retire your boxy band shirts, but trade in the biker shorts for your favorite skinny jeans (cue the distressed, dark denim!) and pair them with an oversized flannel layered over one of those aforementioned band tees, a menswear inspired denim or leather jacket, and the ultimate in old school grunge, Dr. Marten’s boots. The more beaten up, the better! Complete your look with an edgy smoky eye or an unexpected bold lip, and you’re ready to take it to the streets.

Will you be embracing the grunge look this fall, or are you leaving the fishnets to the more edgy set?
