So lately I've been slightly perplexed. With NYFW just finishing, new trends are especially being talked about right now. But there is one in particular that I keep hearing as the "new trend for 2013"– grunge.
Like hold on a second.
That's the "new" trend? Like I am legitimately confused. As far as I know, grunge has been the major trend for the past YEAR, and honestly, I think it's beginning to fade rather quickly. I don't know about you, but the more I see preteens walking around in flannels and Nirvana shirts they picked up from Brandy Melville, the less I have the desire to wear basically what has been my uniform for the past year. And while I can assure you that there are certain things I will never ditch, like my Docs and denim jacket, I feel like the whole "wear as many contrasting prints, especially floral, as you can and try to look as homeless as possible" thing is really getting old.
And maybe that is just me. And maybe this has a large part to do with the short hair. Ever since I cut my hair I've strangely been craving simplicity and a weird form of elegance and class. But I think a large part of this has to do with the 60s coming back in. For me, that is the prominent trend of the year. I mean just look:
Or how about my favorite, and honestly all that matters. CHLOË FREAKING SEVIGNY X opening ceremony:
In fact I really encourage you to check out her whole collection HERE because honestly it's beyond perfect.
Now I'm not saying ditch the 90s altogether. Because I definitely think this 60s trend should be taken with an edgy grungy approach. But I think it's time to say goodbye to that floral maxi and oversized flannel.
I'm really hoping to dive more into this trend, but at the moment I don't have the finances to fuel this desire. Speaking of finances, I recently added some freaking awesome buttons to my etsy. Check them out HERE!
