No matter what the season, fashion is an integral part of any woman’s life. But while it is easy to dress for spring and summer with a few lightweight layers and a cool pair of shades, winter dressing requires a little more thought. Knowing how to dress grunge-style in the winter can be tough, but you’ll find it surprisingly easy if you just keep these few things in mind.
It’s winter, and you want to dress grunge. First, you need to know: what is grunge? How do you dress grunge? What are the clothes for?
Grunge started in the early nineties in Seattle. It’s a subculture with simple punk style – it doesn’t take too much money or time to dress this way. First of all, you need to find the right clothes: jeans, hoodie, long shirt with t-shirt underneath. Also, grey/black sneakers are necessary.
Grunge is a great style for people who don’t have much money because of its simplicity of style and low cost.
In the winter time, you can dress grunge by wearing a hoodie with t-shirt underneath. Then, put jeans and your sneakers.
If you want to be more comfortable, wear long pants and a hoodie over it. Make sure the clothes are tight enough around your legs and that you are able to move freely. Not to mention that if you put long pants on your waist, then you look thinner due to the line of the jacket in the front. When you put on a jacket, make sure that your jeans are tight enough, otherwise they will look sloppy and slouched.
To complete your grunge style, you can wear some accessories like earrings or bracelet. The earrings should be small; the bracelet – thin and in black. It is very important to emphasize a feminine shape during winter time in order not to lose your feminine side.
Also, a beanie is nice to have – it can hide the hair. This is especially important if you are planning to dye your hair.
Now, let’s go into winter accessories. An overcoat is something that you should wear in the cold days of winter. Although it may not be comfortable while moving around because it will make you sweat, it will be useful for those long walks outside when all the rest of your clothes are already wet from the snow and rain.
It is very important to have a pair of warm gloves and scarf. The pair of gloves should be either grey or white, so they match the sneakers. Don’t forget that the scarf is not just a thing that covers your neck but also something that makes you look stylish. It would be nice to have a black one with some swirls on it from Zara to add some style points. The best thing is that it doesn’t have to be expensive – you can get one for a dollar from the dollar store.
We are done with the winter accessories. The next piece of clothing that should be in your wardrobe is a hoodie. If you don’t have a pair, buy a brand new one! It can be from any store but they are usually cheaper from J.Crew or American Eagle. It must be tight enough on your body. If it’s too loose, it will look sloppy and you won’t look attractive with that hoodie.
If you like to wear skirts, then make sure that you can move in it. It should be tight enough and at the same time long enough to cover all the legs. Another important thing is that they are not in bright colors or prints! They should be simple black or brown. Keep in mind that the embellishment is not needed – a simple plain skirt will look very pretty and stylish.
This concludes our tips on how to dress grunge this winter. If you are pregnant or have a baby, then make sure that your clothing is tight enough so that it doesn’t look sloppy – if it does, then you will need to wear long pants. The last thing is to remember that short skirts don’t look too good if you are pregnant since the bump won’t be seen well. You may want to choose a long skirt because of this reason and because of the fact that it covers the lower body better. Also, dresses are the best option for pregnancy but they have to be loose enough so they won’t restrict your movements.
1. Layer your grunge clothing for a look that’s not too bulky.
When wearing layers in the wintertime, be sure that each layer is lightweight but still warm enough to accommodate any temperature changes you may encounter throughout the day.
2. Always wear a scarf, even when it’s sunny out.
3. Wear layers that are both light and warm, rather than heavy and cold.
4. Add a touch of femininity to your grunge style with comfortable accessories, such as boots or stylish scarves.
I do not think you need to wear more than one layer of clothing in the winter. You can just wear a long sleeve shirt and a scarf, then you are good to go. No sweater, no pants, it’s not that cold outside and one layer of clothing will keep you warm. Of course, I hope no one will freeze to death. I don’t want anyone to freeze to death! But if they want to be fashionable, they don’t need fancy clothes to do that. Simple clothes will do. If you want to look more grunge as well, you can just wear ripped jeans and a T-shirt. I know that is very simple, but that’s what feels comfortable to me in the wintertime.
You can’t really tell how cold it is outside unless you step outside and feel it with your hands or feet. It’s hard to determine if your legs are cold or not if the pants are long enough. I know sometimes I’ve worn pants that were too long. They might be fine, but really cold when you touch your pants with your hands. I would recommend wearing shorter jeans in wintertime when it is cold out. But what do I know? This is just my opinion on the matter. My suggestion to those who want to be fashionable and grunge in the wintertime is to wear a simple outfit of jeans and a shirt or coat and be comfortable and not freeze your butt off.
