45 Authentic Grunge Style – Comfortable and Original Outfits for Men

Grunge style first appeared in late 80’s and early 90’s, following the fashion styles of bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. The look is working class, all about being non-conformist and comfortable. Staples of this fashion include oversized vests and shirts, high top shoes, distressed or torn denim, scuffed boots, and flannel – lots of flannel! It reflects a “don’t care” attitude and is comfortable and easy to wear. Let’s look at how to style grunge outfits for men.

Grunge is all about loose and comfortable – go for a layered look like this by combining an oversized hoodie with a dark colored jacket, relaxed fit black jeans and dark lace-up shoes.

Keep to baggy fit oversized tops in dark colors, striped long sleeve tops, torn jeans, flannel and dark colored boots for an authentic feel. Just be as comfortable as possible and you’ll nail this awesome style.
