Grunge with a Modern Twist June 27 2014There is little in fashion that is new. There is only the reimagined. Every season, designers renovate what’s been done by taking past trends and doing a mash up with another trend or putting a spin on it using their own interpretation. Season after season, the runways see a redux of past trends used as inspiration for the new trends that season. One trend that has come back around with a reimagined twist is the slouchy, over-sized sweaters with skinny jeans.
Along with fitted plaid button front flannels, the slouchy sweater is back in style with a more polished look. Pairing the skinny pants (not shiny spandex) from the 80s as opposed to the baggy ripped jeans creates a look that is unique to the 2010s. Sweater color pallets tend to be more muted and subtle as opposed to the bright graphic sweater designs of the early 90s. The inspiration clearly comes the grunge era of the mid to late 90s, and perhaps a trend during some decade before.
One way Curious Gypsy has revamped this look is to add a print to the sweater knit. We have many sweater with statements and others with designs and prints for the fashion forward. In addition to our printed sweaters, we have plain designs. Paired with your favorite pair of skinny pants and a pair of knee high boots, you have the perfect look for this winter. We also carry statement shirts, crops and tanks for every season of the year. Shop our site.
