What is Grunge Aesthetic in 2022?

It’s all about the 90s and noughties nostalgia that revolves around wearing untidy-looking clothes to appear calm and ultra cool, like people who like to be young, wild, and accessible. When we say ‘untidy,’ it doesn’t necessarily mean being untidy but having a less formal look and more on the messier side. Grunge aesthetic outfits include denim, checkered shirts, and everything funky and casual with a flair of the noughties era.

Think Kate Moss and Johnny Depp from the 90s to fully understand the trend’s core. It comes from the high-octane pop culture prevalent in the late ’80s and ’90s. However, one person who genuinely owned this look was Kurt Kobain, the band ‘Nirvana’s lead vocalist. 
Talking about the modern grunge style, the aesthetic comes with a little twist; this time, the polished factor is associated with the grunge look. Take a look at Bottega Veneta’s recent collection ’23, showcased at the Milan Fashion Week, and you’ll get an idea of what’s different about the grunge style this time.
