So here’s how to go grunge without looking like a bad throwback.
How To Experiment With Grunge Clothing Like Taylor Swift
Get Style Inspiration From The Trendsetter Herself
Taylor Swift is just full of surprises, isn’t she? We’ve seen her go from being a curly-haired blonde who loved wearing dresses to a bob-rockin’ songstress who couldn’t get enough of her matching two-piece outfits. And more recently, we saw Taylor rock a lighter ‘do and experiment with different colors and styles like never before. Seeing her wear all this plaid and black grunge clothing has got us itching to try new looks. So if you want to experiment with grunge clothing, let’s take some style cues from Taylor herself before we start walking around smelling like teen spirit.
1. Manus x Machina
To nail Taylor’s futuristic Met Gala outfit, look for a metallic dress and gladiator heels. While it’s not the exact same match, I love this metallic slip dress by Maison Margiela. What could be more ’90s than a slip dress? For grunge clothing that’s a bit more polished, check out this metallic bandage dress by Herve Leger.
2. Straight from the Infamous Marc Jacobs Perry Ellis Show Runway
To try this grunge clothing look, swap your favorite footwear for combat boot heels and pair your favorite distressed plaid dress with a worn leather jacket. #rockgoddess
3. Third Eye Blind-ing Sunglasses
4. Ultimate ’90s Throwback
For the ultimate Run DMC look (track pants not included), pair a cute athletic jacket with ripped jeans and a graphic tee. Yes, grunge clothing can be laid-back too!

5. Grunge Night Out
For a girl’s night out or party, try a sequined dress with clunky booties to look like a serious bad-ass. No one’s breaking Taylor Swift’s heart from here on out, I’ll tell you that much.
6. Edgy Meets Sexy Meets Grunge
For an edgier look, wear a black lace jumpsuit or bodysuit with patent heels or booties. The varying textures of black will add dimension to the look. For great affordable jumpsuits, check out this lace jumpsuit by Missguided and this three quarter-sleeve jumpsuit by Alice by Temperley. If you’re looking to spend $7,000, this Zuhair Murad jumpsuit is the one for you.
Did you notice that Taylor’s staple shoes are mostly booties? If you wish to own a similar one, try this Rhea Lace Up Booties from Mason and Ivy.
