Grunge has made a well defined comeback since last year and the revival seems to be ongoing within each coming season. Its been capitalised in fashion, with nostalgic hair and make-up trends closely following.
Compared with other high polished catwalk trends, the transition to streetwear and effect of Grunge on the present days fashion, has allowed women to embrace a natural, more dishevelled and casual appearance. A few years ago, you would have had people staring if you wore stone-washed denim or a comfortable baggy yet slightly ill-fitting plaid shirt. Its all the rage now... and it has been for a while!

Delving back into the past...
...at the early 90's height of her fame, Winona Ryder showcased the best grunge-worthy style on the red carpet (hands down!) Winona possessed a certain je ne sais quoi (it wasn't all down to beautiful beau Johnny Depp draped on her arm for 4 years) it was something that every girl next door or girl can totally relate to.
A perfectly polished but off duty style that only Winona could have created and carried off;
an aspirational form of style for the modern day chicks!

With a continuing nod to the nineties this Autumn Winter; I think Winona is the ultimate style inspiration for this season. Always adding a unique, nostalgic & feminine edge.
