A little bit of Grunge, anyone?
This is one of those ‘daily afternoon walk’ outfits: not particularly planned, not trying to impress anyone, and put together around a windproof jacket and solid walking shoes.
But now, looking at the photos, I’m tempted to label this outfit Grunge 2.0. Because that’s what it reminds me of: the early 90s’, and Grunge.
Actually, I was never into Grunge, whether we’re taking about the music or the style. Which might be odd, given that I’m practically the poster child of Generation X. Seriously, take any GenX clichés (a latchkey kid with divorced parents who prefers pragmatism over idealism, turns their rootlessness into cynicism, and is fluent in sarcasm etc), that’s me, to a T.
However, my style has always been a bit more, shall we say, aspirational (for lack of a better word). I deplore fast fashion, like luxurious materials such as silk and cashmere, collect designer sunglasses and love well-made (and expensive) handbags.
How did this happen???
I could blame Covid-19, of course, or plead temporary insanity, or something to that effect. I wouldn’t be the first person who feels the past year has completely messed up their style, their plans, their life, and the whole world.
However, it is possible that this slouchy, grungy persona was always lurking somewhere in the dark corners of my mind. And perhaps it has just been biding its time, until it felt it was safe to emerge…
