our concept intern, anastasiya, put together this post on a trend she loves right now – and i love it too :)
I have always had a special spot for grunge, but lately that tenderness has grown into a full-fledged love for the style that was popularized in the nineties before staging its comeback in the twenty-first century. The utility and the comfort that accompanies the look is an instant winner, but the most fun aspect of grunge for me is the way that it makes me feel. I love that I can pull on a confused blend of loose thermal, torn jeans, floor-length skirt, give or take flannel, and go bare-faced out into the world and feel totally at ease. All insecurities dissolve, receding further into some forgotten trapdoor in the back of my mind each time that my hands re-inhabit the warm asylum of my too-long sleeves. In grunge there is no pretension—nothing to prove. It feels right.
Free People’s incorporation of grunge is divine. I love the idea of injecting pretty, feminine lace into a look that is messy, low maintenance, and somewhat boyish by nature. It feels very fresh.
