90s grunge kid

Growing up in the 90s, the current fashion trend can be a walk down the memory lane.

I remember going through those awkward-teenage years in my sweat pants, hoodies, jumpers, crop-tops, baggy pants, denim jackets, jeans and of course, trainers. As much as looking aback those days could be rather cringeworthy, the current fashion trend also has a soft-spot in my heart.

As a child, my hugely inspiring, fashionable and most beloved grandmother would always tell me that fashion simply “repeats itself”. I didn’t quite understand what she meant back then but now I do. The 90s grunge style is definitely making a come-back and doesn't look like it’s going away anytime soon, especially with cool-cats like Cara Delevinge and Rita Ora fronting the movement. And I am simply witnessing this supposedly dated and daggy style being recycled into something a lot more edgy and chic.

This Sydney weekend has been cold and wet. My sister and I were on the verge giving up photo-shooting this week given the non-stop bucketing on Sunday morning. Luckily, the sky cleared up a bit just as we were leaving the house and voila! the sun was also peeping behind the clouds later in the afternoon. Okay, camera ready!

So for today’s outfit, I styled my I-bought-over-a-month-ago BUT never-been-worn-before Nobody distressed denim with my H&M jumper, the Juicy Couture parka, a Uniqlo flannel shirt (the tied-around-waist thing is sooooo 90s) and the ASOS Einstein black heeled boots. I must say the 90s-inspired style achieved quite a balance of fashion and function.
