 The 90s era had very interesting trends and some deserve a dedicated post hence this grunge post.

1. Grunge:-The grunge style is a sloppy look that suggests you didn't put in much effort into dressing up but still manage to look good. You can achieve this with layering,mismatched clothes, loose fitting clothes,denim(distressed and acid wash), flannel shirt, tee(with rips or tear), leather jacket,messy hair and and heavy eyeliner.

The 90's grunge style made a comeback in 2014 but with a little more cleanliness and class.
