90's Grunge

 90's Grunge
Return of the Teen Spirit
"Inspired by hardcore punk and heavy metal, grunge is generally characterized by heavily distorted electric guitars, contrasting song dynamics, "growling" vocals and apathetic or angst-filled lyrics."

Make-up Inspiration- 
Grunge inspired make-up is characterized by an effortless smokey eye and a nude/vampy lip. Glamour magazine quotes "This year’s grunge-inspired looks were all about shading on the lower lash line. From pretty subtle bronze to bold and broken blacks, find your comfort zone and go grunge." 
- Add some smudgy shadow below your usual smoky eyes to take your look from glam to grunge 
- Choose nude or red/wine shades for your lips 


Fashion Inspiration-
Grunge is all about an effortless, slept-in, rebel-like attire. It's a mix of metal and punk inspiration, leather and metal embellishments are a big staple to this style.

Music to Match the Look:
"Señorita" x Justin Timberlake

This is a simple set that I've put together, almost everyone can achieve this look. Every woman and/or girl should own a pair of shorts, wedge heels, a graphic tank, and a blazer. As long as you have these items, you CAN pull off a look similar to this. I chose color-blocking as my theme for this set and mixed elements of casual and "dressy" attire. This look can go from day to night, for example let's say you have a 4 o'clock class; you throw on a pair of cutoff shorts, a graphic tank (like in the photo above), and a pair of vans....during your class you get a text from a friend saying "Let's meet up for drinks later, 7pm @ Blue Martini". You won't have enough time to get ready because your class ends at 6:00 pm and you have to leave your house, or dorm, by 6:30pm...all you have to do is substitute those vans for a pair of wedge heels, add a blazer, and swap that book-bag for an over-sized handbag and you're ready for the nightlife! 

I hope you've enjoyed this post, remember fashion is about taking inspiration and molding it to fit your personal style...

I'll Let You Be in My Dreams if I Can Be in Yours---

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, Live the life you've always imagined...

Music to Match the Look:
"Supersoaker" x Kings of Leon

For this look, I decided to style for both women and men. This particular set is one with a "date night" theme...this is the perfect look for dinner at a nice restaurant or a relaxing evening on the boardwalk. For couples-wear (another one of those words that I'm making-up as I go) I like to have the looks match, without being obvious. Specifically in this set, I've given these outfits cohesion by choosing to style with similar color palettes and the Gucci brand.
This look is very relaxed, since it's the Fall season, I am slightly obsessed with over-sized sweaters. For this set I chose a Rag & Bone wide-neck sweater in the color grey, this is a very pricey brand but, it's one of my favorites. Black skinny jeans from 7 For All Mankind are paired with this top along with red suede pumps from Zara to accent the statement piece; this beige Gucci original "GG" fabric handbag.
There's something very alluring and attractive about a man who is stylish in a very simplistic/ laid-back kind of way. I styled this look and many of my looks for menswear this way...
Top: Basic cotton deep v-neck
Pants: J Brand white skinny jeans 
Shoes: Black and White Converse "Chuck Taylor All-Star"
Watch: Gucci "G-Timeless" Sport Watch

Boy Meets Girl--

More like...the guy meets a smart girl who wears a lot of sweaters and drinks cocoa. They talk about books and issues and kiss in the rain.

Music to Match the Look:
"Say a Prayer" x Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown

This is another couples set, I'm starting to do a lot of posts now styling for both women and men... This is the perfect look for a day at the mall or a movie night--
Distressed Romwe t-shirt (I love this shirt, the sleeveless and distressed features give you outfit such an edgy feel which helps bring an element of style to something so effortless and "chill") paired with dark denim skinny jeans. For the shoes, I chose to style with wedged sneakers, this shoe compliments this outfit brings the right balance of casual and edge (in this particular set, I've chosen Isabel Marant's "The Bekett" suede wedge sneakers). To accessorize, you want to go pretty minimal. A single cuff, or watch would accent this look rather than wearing a lot of wrist-wear...If you want to wear a necklace, I would recommend wearing a single chain (mid-length/around the collar bone area)  
Deep v-neck cotton t-shirt (I prefer the look of deep v-necks over the traditional v-neck) paired with mid-blue washed skinny jeans. For the shoes, I'm choosing low-top sneakers (Vans slip-ons or low-top Converses will compliment this look) and you can choose a different color or print, I just decided to choose black because its basic and matches the womenswear look in this collection. To accessorize this look, I chose a black leather wrap bracelet because it adds an element of rock and grunge without taking away from your masculinity.

The Gentleman's Quarterly--

"A Gentleman is Simply a Patient Wolf--"

Music to Match the Look:
"Untitled (How Does it Feel)-Cover" x Daniel de Bourg

I've been in this theme of ease and comfort, like the womenswear "Easy Glam" post, this set is one that evokes a sense of easiness. This is a very clean look, when styling for men you don't want to "over do it". A few of my last menswear posts have been styled with a rocker vibe, this post was inspired with more of an urban suaveness (totally not a word).
I chose the "I Love Ugly" Zespy Pant in the color tobacco, which can be purchased here...
I really like the slim fit of these pants, the dropped crotch gives extra room where it's needed--the fit in the legs/ankles give a sleek and polished look. I recommend wearing low-top/slip on shoes because they will accentuate the gathering of fabric at the ankle.
Top--Zadig & Voltaire Military-styled shirt, cuffed at the elbow...
Shoes--Vintage Burberry Sneakers 
Watch--Sportwise Watch by GUESS

La Dolce Vita ---

"Set the Night on Fire, Baby Burn it Up!"

Music to Match the Look:
"Change" x Churchill

Hello Dolls,
It's been a long time since I've published a styling set! I've been extremely busy but, I'm back! For this set, I wanted to style something that was easy yet, edgy. I chose to go with a pair of distressed "boyfriend" style jeans because they're comfortable and go with the theme of this look. This look is effortless, which is one of the reasons why I'm really loving it, and fashion-forward. The cropped shirt I paired with this set give the jeans a sexy/"dressed-up" vibe, being that it's the summer season, and it gets really hot where I live, this outfit would be perfect for a night outing (because you wouldn't have to worry about the humidity affecting your look *thumbs up*). 
Accessories: all black everything ;P
Black Ankle Strap Sandals by Zara (<--- click for purchase details)
Office City Bag by Zara (<--- ditto)
As you all should know by now, I'm a huge fan of midi ("knuckle") rings…I chose to go with a set of three in gold, they're pretty basic, you don't want too much going on because I did choose the necklace to be the statement piece. 
This multi-chain necklace is by Giuseppe Zanotti, clearly it's very expensive but you can use this to give you an idea of how to style the right accessories to go with this look. You can find a necklace similar to this at almost any retail store like Forever 21 and/or Zara... 
Beauty: au naturale ;)
Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick in "Peach Passion" available at Sephora (<--- ditto x2)
because this look is one of ease, I would recommend that you go very natural with the make-up, flawless dewy skin with peachy lips and cheeks (trust me, you can never go wrong with this look).
I would recommend wearing your hair down, whether it's curled, wavy, or straight, wearing your hair down will accent the sexiness of this look
