Holy 90s Teen Spirit

So in previous posts I've mentioned "grunge" "the 90s" and the "punk rock scene". 10.09.1991 is one of the most iconic dates in the history of Grunge Rock music. This is the date that saw the release of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" a song by the legendary grunge band of the 90s Nirvana. Rock history tells us that this song wasn't even planned for release as a lead single for the band's album titled Nevermind. Smells Like Teen Spirit did not even get much promotion prior to its release almost everyone was skeptical about it, no one foresaw it as a hit single not to mention a song that would make a whole new mark in the genre of rock music. How does this all relate with the content in my blog and genre? Read on.

Well back in April, 2013 I reinvented my look to the 90s fashion which was known as 'grunge fashion' little did I know that later in the year I'll be seeing this very trend on the international runways and mega magazines. I'm sure lately you've been hearing the name Kurt Cobain being mentioned a lot either on fashion blogs or trend alerts on magazines. This is basically the man behind the whole craze of 90s grunge both as a music genre and a fashion trend. If you think you have not heard anything from Kurt yet you've heard Jay Z's latest offering Holy Grail, think again my child. JayZ has used some lyrics from this smash hit from the 90s.
‘With the lights out, it’s less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us’

90s grunge is more about the effortless dressing up with worn out jeans, camouflage, cardigans, cut off shorts, beanies, creepers and a lot of plaid. We've seen this trend from runways and in the streets from many celebrities like super model Cara Devangeline and mega pop star Rihanna. From the 90s it has hit the street fashion scene in 2013. Be sure to be keep up with the fashionable kids and rock this trend. It’s contagious fashion.
