We often reference grunge with the '90s, but it originated in the '80s and went mainstream only later. It's since found different iterations in how we wear it today.

Soft grunge is essentially grunge with a modern influences for a less "rough around the edges" appearance. You can achieve a soft grunge look by incorporating one element of grunge fashion like a flannel throw on, with your regular wardrobe.

Pastel Grunge


Putting together the soft and delicate pastel with rough and tough grunge may sound like something of an oxymoron but actually it makes for a very cute outfit.

Achieve the aesthetic by selecting grunge items, but in lighter, pastel shades of yellows, pinks, mint greens instead of traditional blacks and reds. But the dark colors are still chic of course.

Bold makeup is hardly an in-between; go bare or go all-in with a heavy shadow on the eyelids and a dark, plum, burgundy, maroon lipstick.

As far as your hair goes, grunge hairstyles are often care-free and a little "I woke up like this." However, if you're going for traditional feminine-inspired grunge, you can dye your hair a light color to match your pastels and add baby bangs.
