Curvy Girl Fashion - 90's grunge is back!!

So, I have mixed feelings that flannel plaid, distressed, combat boots, oversized everything, etc are back in style. I'm happy because that was my absolute favorite era - clothing, music, memories (I grew up as a teenager in the mid to late 90's so I really got to experience everything it had to offer). But at the same time I am a little sad that I'm actually old enough to see a trend go out and come back in again decades later. My friend Kathy texted me from Montreal over the summer and showed me a picture of a store display she saw. Everything was plaid flannel, huge, and distressed. I was so excited and hoped that the trend would make its way here (newfoundland is a little slow with the trends, I find). I'm finally starting to see the stores here follow the trend but I'm not sure if it will catch on or not. Either way, I plan to rock the 90's trend for my more casual days and weekends. I know this is not for everyone but I'm loving it!

I put this outfit together for Friday but I have some more 90's inspired outfits to come throughout the fall. The plaid flannel shirt came from Forever 21+, the jeans are boyfriend jeans from Old Navy (These are "skinny" and I'm not loving the shape - I'll keep looking for something straighter from the hip and a little more distressed), the faux leather moto jacket is from Reitmans (I know, right? They are totally moving up in the world), and the boots are Madden Girl (purchased at Shoe Company). Even though Kings of Leon are not 90's, the short skinny jeans with the boots kinda gives the outfit a little Kings of Leon rock feel at the same time.



Hope you like it!

Much Love,
April
