How I Would Wear... Grunge Trend*

Hello my lovelies,

As teen, I spent my days listening to Nirvana and Black Sabbath, lamenting the fact that I was not able to express myself through clothes, like my friends were, due to the limited plus size fashion available in the late 90s. 

Last year, I bought my first pair of biker boots and I felt the 14 year old in me sing for joy, that here I was, some 15 years later, expressing my teenage angst with style! 

Teenage me would be over the moon with the options available to us these days, but Grunge-y, Alternative Kathryn, with her Led Zepplin Hoodie (the best I could manage at the time), would love the above items from New Look Inspire!
This shift dress from New Look (£22.99)just sings being worn with thick tights (ripped, if you're going for the full effect!), biker boots and leather jacket. 

In a size 24 for a relaxed, slouchy fit, this tunic will be a future favourite of mine. I teamed it with leggings and ballet pumps, but can't wait to wear it with my biker boots in colder weather.

It's almost as though it's mod meet grunge if I'm honest - which pleases me even more!

If a leather jacket is a couple of steps too far, and closer to looking like you're in fancy dress, then this New Look lace cardigan would keep the dressing up / dressing down mix that the grunge ethos (thinking Helena Bonham Carter)!

And finally, the New Look Nirvana tshirt:

If you're wearing this because you think it looks cool, then great. But the music snob inside of me is screaming "KNOW MORE THAN ONE SONG!". I'm trying to be open minded about these things, but hey, I can't be perfect!

Paired with a ripped set of skinny jeans, the above cardigan and a parka jacket and BOOM, grunge galore!

Much love my lovelies,

A review of the tartan smock dress will be coming soon! 

The shift dress was sent to me to review, but the words and thoughts are my own.
