Update and Elevate Grunge Florals

Update and Elevate Grunge Florals

Plumager® can create the perfect print for your next collection!

Grunge fashion burst on to the scene in the 90's along with its namesake music scene, and since then it has settled in, cozy in our closets. Flannel shirts, comfortable layers, and grunge style florals have become fashion mainstays for quite some time. As grunge style hits a new peak in popularity, we look at a few ways to update and elevate grunge florals in your next collection.


Leave flannel shirts for the crispy Seattle weather, there are other ways to incorporate plaid into your look! We can't help but look back at Dries Van Noten SS13, featuring florals, plaids, and the recently trendy pin check, blended with lush textures and sumptuous details. Updated versions are still popping up, like this easy floral and plaid dress from Topshop. Don't forget to shop for plaids, a Plumager® specialty!

At the heart of grunge style is a rejection of mainstream fashion, though this has been turned on its head with high-end grunge-inspired collections by the likes of Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui. The current interest in thrifting and upcycling feels more true to form. Look to vintage styles and unexpected combos. These thrift inspired pieces from HVN and Batsheva can't help but remind us of Kurt Cobain's progressive tendency for wearing dresses.

90's babies are all grown up! Office dressing can still maintain an off-beat edge, with a floral suit, like this one by Adam Lippes. Grunge influence even seeps into heritage brands like Brooks Brothers, in this cute, but perfectly respectable plaid and floral suit.
