Welcome to the final day of my challenge by the lovely Alex to dress in the style of each decade of the Twentieth Century. Today is the turn of the 1990's.
Before you despair, the 1990's weren't all beige Chino pants, Jennifer Anniston haircuts, fleeces and combat trousers. For us music fans the first half of the decade was all about the Grunge scene, the alternative rock genre that took the Western world by storm in the early 1990's with bands such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
Followers wore tatty second-hand clothing, oversized holey jumpers, beanie hats, flannel shirts and bleached-out denim. Chunky heeled, platform soled shoes made a welcome comeback. Influenced by the fabulous Courtney Love we Riot Grrls dressed in the Kinderwhore fashion, satin slip dresses, bleached hair, hot pants and tight cropped tees with smudged black eyeliner and red lipstick. Tattooes and pierced belly buttons were hugely popular.
And so ends the Century of Style challenge! Hope you've enjoyed it. I'd love you to let me which decade you enjoyed the most.
